Phil Kowalski of This is Xbox writes, "Ultimately, this game should be one of your must-buys. It’s simple to pick up and easy to play. It’s fun, social and competitive as well as glorious to look at. Riptide GP2, it’s MotoGP on water. Wipeout without the weapons. In fact, with guns, it'd be downright awesome. What are you waiting for, why aren’t you playing it now?"
