The one game that probably got me into this whole world of handheld games was the Atari Lynx version of California Games, and more specifically the amazing rendition of the surfing game on the handheld. I had hours of fun with that game, and to this day I've been somewhat surprised that nobody ever attempted to recreate that design on current handheld hardware. Until now. The similarities may be coincidental, though...but I'm convinced that HotGen used that Lynx minigame as a blueprint for its first GBA surfing title. The game's not very deep...but then, what the heck can you do on a constantly flowing wall of water? Kelly Slater is an excellent, intuitive surfing game that's a whole lot of fun to just kick around on the varying sizes of waves. And it looks just beautiful on the GBA system.
Activision weiß nun mal wie ein gutes Funsportspiel auszusehen hat. Kelly Slater bringt frischen Schwung in das Genre, und genau das ist momentan dringend nötig! Denn ob Skateboard, Inline-Skates oder BMX: Irgendwie sind doch alle Spiele gleich. Nicht so beim Wellenreiten. Da kommt gleich ein völlig anderes Spielgefühl auf. Gekonnt vollführe ich waghalsige Tricks auf den monströsen Wellen, die alles gnadenlos unter sich begraben. Geschmeidig tauche ich unter den gewaltigen Wassermassen hinweg. Ja, da schlägt das Funsport-Herz höher! Einziger Wehmutstropfen: Welle bleibt Welle. Aufgrund des (zwangsläufigen) Abwechslungsdefizits wird der Spaß also nicht endlos andauern, aber lange genug.
The Video Game Critic
You can pull off impressive combos with ease, but you'll need to know what you're doing to score the big points. A special meter across the top of screen increases with every trick, so the better you perform, the easier it is to pull off the crazy stuff. Pro Surfer's music is great, and a gnarly surfer dude offers constructive criticism like "You suck!". Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer is a pleasant surprise to say the least. If you're looking for a surfing game but have been disappointed with the PS2 and Xbox offerings, give this old-school throwback a try.
Un jeu très Yeaaaaaah. On passe quand même pas mal de bon temps à essayer avec opiniâtreté de réaliser des figures extrêmes, pardon, tricks Xtriiiiiiiime. Bref un jeu à conseiller aux fans de Tony le Faucon ou Mat Hoffman, le baron du BMX (comprenne qui pourra).YEAAAAAAAAAH!!!!!
Ultimately, Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer is yet another great release for the Gameboy Advance. It takes a limited formula and stretches it to breaking point. Achieving high scores becomes incredibly addicted and is a great alternative to standing placidly at a bus stop, while you await the no 37. It may not be the best sounding game ever, however the superb visuals and enjoyable gameplay will be more than enough to keep you happy for some time. Activision have once again delivered a title that's perfectly suited for it's medium. Nice one.
Bueno, Kelly Slater es un juego simple, pero muy bien llevado y con buenas posibilidades de enganchar al jugador si se deja y empieza a explotar las posibilidades. El juego de surfing de California Games era muy simple, pero tenía un noseque que lo hacía muy entretenido, y este Kelly Slater recoge y aumenta esa capacidad de diversión. Si a eso se le suma un buen puñado de opciones, un modo de dos jugadores y una buena realización técnica, se tiene un título realmente competente al que se le puede dar una oportunidad.
