The only decent surfing game available...still,
This review is from: Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer (PS2) (Video Game)
This game is superb, good graphics and gameplay and big selection of different levels from the indoor wavehouse to g-land and other exotic locations. This game is produced by the same company that made the more famous tony hawk's pro skater range, but do not be fooled this is not just skateboarding on water, it has a very different feel. On the different levels there are a number of objectives (similar to pro skater) e.g. achieve a certain score, run over the bodyboarders, jump the pier that kind of thing. It is also similar to pro skater in the way that you unlock new boards and new characters. The back of the case claims that you'll never ride 'the same wave twice' this may not be entirely true but there is certainly a lot of variation in the waves even on the same level in terms of hight, speed, and direction. Before this game was released i had been longing for a surfing game but the ones that were available were seriously poor and i wouldn't have touched them with a barge pole. Kelly slater's pro surfer though really is a great game that i come back to time and time again. It's just a shame that a sequel hasn't been brought out because i think it's a concept that could be taken much further however until that day this is the best your gonna get.
