Atari Australia Press Quotes (for Xbox):
    "Skateboarding is surely going to remain the king of the extreme sport pile, with the Tricky series doing its bit for what once was a lost snowboarding cause. But somewhat surprisingly, Angel Studios has done a great job of getting a surfing game up there in terms of quality and realism with those long-standing titles. The Transworld Surf team has produced an entertaining and challenging title that's sure to grab the attention of many a radical dude when it's released - all you need now is your mom to douse you with the shower while you catch those waves. Brilliant range of game modes, surfers and locations" -

    “Angel Studios' TransWorld Surf shows that the difficult sport of surfing can indeed be done right, and done well, and this gamer couldn't be happier about it. TransWorld Surf is the first intelligent, hardcore, devilishly addictive -- and best -- surfing game on the planet, to date.” - IGN Online

    “…Transworld Surf is such a special game.” “…an unbeleiveable sense of atmosphere…” “Finally, a surfing game the industry can be proud of!” - 80% Hyper Magazine

    "All in all, Transworld Surf will appeal to the surfer in anyone. Its beautiful graphics and perfect physics engine make it a startlingly realistic simulation of the sport. "

    “…best surfing title we’ve sen so far.” “…the stars of the show are the huge waves.” - Australian Personal Computer
