Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer is an excellent surfing game that not only looks and sounds great, but also makes all three aspects of competitive surfing fun; the tube tricks, the face tricks, and the aerials. If you're familiar with Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, or any of the other Activision O2 games, then you may want to rent this first before buying -- it's quite a different experience. But even without the familiar rails and ramps, you'll have great fun pulling off insane tricks and surfing the greatest waves from across the globe.
I happily admit to being totally biased toward all surf games. I have played them all, and I can't wait to play this one 17 more times. It's sort of like the same thing for RPG or football fans -- it's hard to resist playing them. And so if Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer doesn't spark a huge interest in videogame surfing, well then sh*t, nothing will. But after the talk of technology dies down, and the rush of admiration for these incredible athletes wears off, what's left? Core gameplay.
I realize there's only so much you can do with a surfing game, but having more play modes would have been nice. Push mode is fun, but the other two are generic and typical. No internet support.
La experiencia acumulada por Activision en deportes como el skateboard les ha servido para plantearse previamante qué tipo de producto esperaban los jugones de PS2 y qué tipo de producto les gustaría crear a ellos.
Kelly Slater nous prouve qu'il est le roi du surf aussi bien dans la vie que sur console. Pas vraiment original dans le fond mais parfaitement adapté à la discipline, Pro Surfer surclasse le concurrent Transworld Surf en profitant de tout le savoir faire d'Activision en matière de sports extrêmes.
If you can get past the terrible slowdown, Kelly Slater?s Pro Surfer will give you one hell of a ride on the water. Plus, since Infogrames? TransWorld Surf is more of a simulation, Pro Surfer is the best arcade style surfer for the PS2 available.
Instead of using past mediocre surfing games as an excuse for cutting corners, Treyarch has risen above and created a surfing game that exhibits a high level of quality in every facet of its execution. Extreme sports buffs looking for something totally original may be a bit disappointed, but the game's responsive control, consistently good visuals, and diverse gameplay will ensure that most anyone will end up enjoying this one.
