  1. The best adaptation of an animated movie we've seen in a long time. [Sept 2007, p.77]
  2. It’s for kids, so it’s not difficult to unlock most of the stuff in a few hours of play, but this isn’t one of those games that’s aimed at me, at the older, core gamer.
  3. Predictable but okay. [Sept 2007, p.50]
  4. Surfs up will almost certainly be a hit with the younger gamer, especially if they enjoyed the movie. For the more seasoned gamer, Surf’s Up might not heed enough of a challenge considering the main game can easily be beaten in a couple of hours.
  5. When it comes to a quick rental, Surf's Up qualifies.
  6. Hanging 10 in this movie-licensed surfing game has its moments--just don't expect to enjoy it for very long.
  7. Average, simple and very non-Wii - this takes the extreme out of extreme sports. [Oct 2007, p.72]
