  1. Everything from the wake generation to the boat and boarder physics is flawless and you won't find a more original or fun game than Wakeboarding Unleashed.
  2. The title's most remarkable feature is the towrope's physics. Whether you're taking in slack or using it to slingshot around massive lakes, the rope feels absolutely real and must be played to be believed. [July 2003, p.73]
  3. What pushes the gameplay over the top is how at any time you can let go of the rope, pull off some wild tricks and call the rope back. [Aug 2003, p.76]

    The most imaginative and engaging action-sports title in quite some time... It's an adrenaline-charged blast that shouldn't be missed.
  5. Slightly innovative and very addictive, Wakeboarding Unleashed seriously scratches our extreme sport itch and brings us a game filled to the brim with unique challenges and perfect controls.
  6. The fun and quality of the single player experience would be enough, but the co-op mode just screams "Activision loves you." With the long, deep career mode, the multiplayer contests, and the cool co-op mode, Wakeboarding Unleashed is a very good value.

    Definitely the most underrated and possibly the best of the SSX-style trick-racing games. I remember picking up this game from the bargain bin out of curiosity, knowing nothing about it, and being startled by how polished and fun it was. Full Review »

    This game is an absolute blast. Why didn't anyone tell me about it sooner? Activision should have made some commercials for this one. I will take it over Tony Hawk any day. It's that good. Full Review »
