DevelopmentThis game started life in late 2000 when Microsoft commissioned Argonaut to make a jet ski racing title for its upcoming console, the Xbox. Somewhere along the line, around mid-2002, Microsoft's marketing team got cold feet about the project and the financial plug was pulled. Argonaut self-funded the project for a year before Take 2 (Global Star's parent company) picked it up for publishing. It was released in Europe and the US in early 2004.
