Everything I loved about Hydro Thunder has returned with Hurricane and more. The fun and addicting gameplay, the huge selection of boats and courses, and the speed all make for a great day of racing. Throw in some new single player and multiplayer modes, Hydro Thunder Hurricane will keep you racing until your fingers fall off.
perfect gameplay. it is smooth, it is different and it is wild! this game is extremely fast pace and intense. it may be frustrating at first but it is a masterpiece once mastered. I recommend this to everyone as it is incredibly affordable and holds hours of gameplay inside.
This game is the bestest racing game i have ever tasted, this is one of the only games we bought of the xbox 360 at full price instead of just getting the demo. the best boat by far is the rubber duckie, this is a must play on any platform. 10/10 i love
Waves crashing and dinosaurs jumping out of the water are just two of the many things this water racers has going for it. The controls are brilliant, and the only thing keeping it back is a lack in variation.
Giving this already-great game a perfect 10 for something I discovered last time I played it. It works with my Logitech G920 wheel+pedals setup on the Xbox One and Series X! Think about that for a second - a 12-year-old game works with an accessory that doesn't even work with the console it was released for! Insanity! (But ridiculously awesome!)
This was the first game I played since buying an Xbox One S, and my first ever game in the Microsoft family back in 2019. I'm glad that it was both in the Game Pass subscription, and is now distributed by Gold.
Despite the fact that the game is already 12 years old, the multiplayer is still alive, it’s not boring to play it, the races are dynamic, the tracks are varied and interesting, good game mechanics, and there are many modes in the single-player game, there is Navalny duck. What else is needed for happiness?) The only thing that is a pity is that there are no more such games, and Microsoft is not interested in such a thing, which is very unfortunate. Glory to Ukraine!
Oh man this game brings back memories. Me and my friends used to play this and SEGA Bass Fishing all day, every day back on the Dreamcast. Well, not this exactly, the original, but this is so close its not even funny. Except this one's way better. The core gameplay remains the same. You drive drifty speedboats through over-the-top courses complete with dragons and giant Norse gods with swinging axes and what not. You fill up boost meters, draft rivals, and pull off huge jumps. There are several modes like race, ring master (where you drive through ring gates as fast as possible), gauntlet and championship. You get bronze, silver, and gold medals based on your finish and are placed on leaderboards. There is also multiplayer which pretty much explains itself. There are also boats, skins, levels and other things to collect. The graphics here won't blow you away because this is essentially the Dreamcast game, although now visuals have been given a little HD polish and there are spray effects and better lighting. Not that the original looked bad, its just more than a decade old and needed a touch up. Hydro Thunder Hurricane is a lot of fun and worth every bit of the 1200 point asking price.
Petit jeu de course d'arcade avec des bateaux "vavavoum" qui font très vite sur l'eau et le moins qu'on puisse dire, c'est que ça déménage... Spectaculaire et animé mais aussi un peu bordélique parfois surtout évidemment avec les "boosts" qu'on récupère et qui accélèrent encore plus l'action...
Le maniement est sans souci et la physique aquatique est tout-à-fait convaincante. Si les graphismes n'ont rien d'extraordinaire (il s'agit d'un indé avec pas beaucoup d'argent, ne l'oublions pas) ils font néanmoins largement l'affaire, tout comme les effets et l'ambiance sonores.
Mais, car il y a un mais et même plusieurs, le système de progression choisi est très rigide et contraignant et nous oblige à suivre le chemin des épreuves tracé par le développeur, ce qui inclut obligatoirement les deux modes bien pourraves et irritants comme le contre-la-montre avec des anneaux ou celui avec des barils explosifs (yop la boum, quand votre bateau fait boum...).
Du coup, on passe à côté de nombreux circuits qui restent bloqués comme des cons tant qu'on a a pas limé ce qu'on t'a dit de limer parce que c'est comme ça et pas autrement. C'est vraiment très con comme système. Et je dirais même plus comme dirait Dupont : c'est très con. Parce que si les courses sont bien, les CLM sont à chier ! c'est vraiment ballot.
