  1. Hanging 10 in this movie-licensed surfing game has its moments--just don't expect to enjoy it for very long.
  2. Game Informer
    This is the first licensed game I've played that is actually shorter than its movie. [Aug 2007, p.93]
  3. Games Master UK
    Average, simple and very non-Wii - this takes the extreme out of extreme sports. [Oct 2007, p.72]
  4. 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.
  5. Nintendo Power
    The most disappointing aspect, however, is the lack of Wii-remote usage--instead of carving up the tide with remote gyrations, you can boost occasionally by shaking the controller. [July 2007, p.96]
  6. Official Nintendo Magazine UK
    The best adaptation of an animated movie we've seen in a long time. [Sept 2007, p.77]
  7. Nintendo Gamer
    Predictable but okay. [Sept 2007, p.50]
  8. 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.
  9. When it comes to a quick rental, Surf's Up qualifies.
