Atari Australia Press Quotes - Xbox:
    " Splashdown is a must have game if you're a racing fan of any kind. If you're into jet skis, then even better. Awesome graphics, solid controls, and lots of trickin' means a kick-butt racing game! And of course, as usual, the Xbox version is the superior one. If you held out, you made the right choice.
