"What Hydro Thunder Hurricane accomplishes so brilliantly is capturing the essence of speed all wrapped up in layers upon layers of breathtaking arcade action."
Woohoo! Hydro Thunder! I have such fond memories of the Arcade and Dreamcast versions!
Indeed indeed Would probably never have bought the Dreamcast version if it hadn't come bundled for free when I bought the console. As a direct result of that, over 10 years later I am very interested in buying HT:Hurricane!!
Hey, I never played Hydro Thunder but I love Waverace. Are the two games similar?
awesome. definitely going to check this one out
Was always curious about this since i remember it from back in my arcade days.
Next up, Artic Thunder please.
It figures, at least one site always has to break the review embargo.
..break the embargo date? :/
Yup, they did break the embargo. What some won't do for a quick traffic hit. Wow.
Looks good,feels good = Must Buy!
I spent a ridiculous sum of quarters on this game back in the day. Good to see a new Hydro Thunder in the mix.
Another great summer of arcade.
Im going to buy this. Was expecting for more score though :/ lets see about the other reviews.
It's only just dawned on me that Hydro Thunder Hurricane is a remake of the classic version I played on the original Playstation all those years ago *GULP*. Turn the interest dial to 11.
actually its the sequel. New maps, New boats, new everything.
Yeah, except this time it actually looks good :P I remember the PS1 version, the water was horrible. The N64 version looked almost as good as the arcade did, but the framerate was slow. Dremacast version was about perfect.
it looks fun and all but I don't pay to play so no 360. it does look very very pretty. Like a really hot hooker.
I wasn't actually that bothered about this game but looks like it'll be good fun + could do with a new racer (especially for cheap). Will have to see how things are going with SCII first though. This another 1200 point game though?
... Not too interested in this game, really.. Nothing special =/
Much like the aftermarket wheels in your avatar, your comment is worthless.
Looking really good. I hope it plays just as well as the Dreamcast version.
Hydro Thunder looks interested. I enjoy such racing games.
Can't wait to play this one. Loved the arcade version. Still a little pissed that every game on Summer Arcade line-up is 1200 points...
That's because they're all high quality and worth $15. This game was $50 when it came out on the Dreamcast and N64/PS1.
I don't usually buy XBLA games, they're certainly starting to look a lot better though. I think this one will do well because of people who loved the original.
The last 3 games I have bought.... All XBLA games (Defense Grid Deal of the Week, BL Tango Down & Limbo. I also picked up Alien Swarm on the PC last week too. These downloadable games are really turning the corner with their polish and quality. I have to say They have taken over my play list and at a fraction of the cost of what these bigger $60 games cost. Publishers really should take notice.
thx for review!
Way to break an embargo..
XBLA keeps raising the bar for downloadable titles. Can't wait to try this out!
looks like a must buy!
Man, I loved this arcade game. Really hope to get a copy of this one!!
never played it but it looks good!
such a fun game
oh looks like fun my teenagers would love this, different from what they usually play
