    It feels like it has been made with a lot more care and attention than most big budget titles from last year and it has found a deserving home on current gen consoles.

    It really wouldn't take a lot of work to turn this into a multi-title franchise that could become the Xbox platform's very own Wave Race. We would have been happy to pay twice as much for more depth, but as it stands, $4.99 isn't a terrible price for what you get here.

    Unless you’re absolutely dying for a local multiplayer racer, Riptide GP 2’s barebones approach to jet ski racing isn’t worth the time, even with the low price of admission.

    For $5 a lot of it can be overlooked, though the grinding to see the rest of the tracks almost forced me to stop playing. Still, with friends this is a great looking racer that thinks outside the box. I would love to see this team do a proper console/PC title in the series, one without all the hangups of mobile game design.

    Classic jetski racing, brought to my very own home. No longer will I have to stand the smell of spilled beer and the noise of undisciplinedClassic jetski racing, brought to my very own home. No longer will I have to stand the smell of spilled beer and the noise of undisciplined children yelling "I want next!" before I even start my race. Too much fun for the price offered, this is such a steal that I should be arrested!

    All Jokes aside, amazing game from a great group of people. Thanks Vector Unit!

I own it on my Windows Phone, Surface 2 and now my Xbox One. Some may feel that the content is a bit light for a console game, especially with no online multiplayer, but I feel for the $5 asking price that there is plenty here to do. You will get at least 8-10 hours of game play from it and most likely much more. This is just a great game to load up and play a few races. The graphics look nice and the game runs at 1080p and 60 FPS. There is local split screen multiplayer that supports up to six players! For those who like collecting achievements remember that even a $5 game can't net you 1000GS. Expand

For $5 this is a steal, it is a blast to play and 6 player split screen is a dream come true. I could see this game being a very successful title if they developed it further. If they added more multiplayer features and turned it into a $15 or $20 game I would be more than willing to buy it. Especially if they gave riders the ability to attack the other riders like in Blur or Mario Kart. For $5 you can't do much better in the new gen. Expand

Its arcade racing with leaderboards, high scores and bad 80's electro type music. It is however, worth the $4.99 price. check this out if your into arcade racing. Expand
