Description

Port of Midway's arcade boat-racer. The premise is non-existent, you simply rev up the engines and go on 13 water courses set in Antarctica, the far east, the Greek isles, etc. on different types of futuristic boats. Races use the usual arcade checkpoint system and scattered across the courses you'll find an assortment of power-ups and upgrades like nitro boosters.

Graphics are entirely 3D with reflective water effects and realistic bouncing and bucking in the boats. Multiplayer competitions are supported for 2 players on the PlayStation version.

Trivia

Dreamcast versions

This game was released twice! Four games released by Midway back when they first started making Dreamcast games had several errors, which were fixed in subsequent pressings. How do you tell if you have a fixed copy? The cover should should say "Hot! New!", the disc is slightly different, and the UPC may also be different.

The other games that were released as Hot! New! versions were Mortal Kombat Gold, Ready 2 Rumble Boxing, and NFL Blitz 2000.
