  • Summary: Wakeboarding Unleashed rips you across a lake by a high-powered speedboat as you perform tricks through dangerous terrain. As one of seven world-class wakeboarders, you'll crash into houseboats and catch huge air in nine exotic levels. If you become too tired, then drive the boat and help your friend pull off challenging technical tricks on the water. Wakeboarding Unleashed takes wakeboarding to the next level with realistic water, unique interaction with the rope, and a fun cooperative mode. Collapse

  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. 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]
  3. 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.

    Visually, the Xbox version smokes its PS2 counterpart, but it won’t blow your doors off.
  5. This is all about gameplay, and the open-ended structure is a welcome respite from the usual - the controls are responsive, the challenges perfectly pitched, and the various multiplayer games provide plenty of depth and longevity.
  6. Perseverance will pay off, but mastering this game can be frustrating.
  7. 6 / 5 / 6 / 6 - 23 [Vol 785]

    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. Expand
