  1. Might just be the best racing game for the sytsem. [August 2002, p.86]
  2. Although it can get repetitive, the overall feeling of zooming around on perfectly realized waves, complete with foam and spume, is mindlessly addictive. [Sept 2002, p.96]
  3. 85
    The definitive version of the game. PS2 Splashdown players who own an Xbox should consider this upgrade.
  4. 80
    Overall, though, if you’ve already conquered the PS2 version, you can safely skip right past this game.
  5. With the increased resolution of the Xbox, the visuals in the game are now simply breathtaking.
  6. With a respectable amount of tracks and a good number of riders to choose from Splashdown delivers in almost every department for an extreme racing title.
  7. Starts off as a strong racing title, but begins to fall short with an unorthodox campaign system and poor sound track.

    Best. Water. Ever. If you even think that the idea of racing seadoos sounds like the slightest bit of fun.. you HAVE to get this game! Our Best. Water. Ever. If you even think that the idea of racing seadoos sounds like the slightest bit of fun.. you HAVE to get this game! Our whole family fell in love with it right off the bat. Only thing that keeps it from being a ten is that fact that it only supports 1-2 players. No 4 player multi/no system link. Collapse
