Review

When I first starting playing through this game it was something new and exciting. Dashing across detailed water textures on fabulous looking boats hunting down enemies left and right. But the more you play this title to more repetitious it becomes. It’s the same thing over and over again. They do give you a break from this repetition when they let you race against enemy boats in order to advance to the next level. But they are strait back to the same grind over and over again.

In addition to the game being repetitious the boats are very hard to hand with the XBOX controller. Turning around when enemies are firing round after round into your tail can be quite a challenge. You’ll try turning around in reverse and then because of the control interface a slight slip of your finger and you are headed in the opposite direction. It can be very annoying.

Once you get used to the controls, however, the game can be quite fun. The 2-4 player death matches especially are a blast and the water effects are quite amazing.
