Hydro Thunder Coming to Xbox Live Arcade

Slashgamer Writes: "In 1999, Midway released Hydro Thunder, a powerboat racing game for the arcade, and they later ported the title as a Sega Dreamcast launch game. It was known for its over-the-top antics, which felt like Mario Kart on water - but it never got the same recognition as popular Nintendo franchise. Although when it was released, it was praised for it's unbelievable virtual waves - which would crash into each other - creating havoc for gamers who raced through the course.

Wow! That's supposed to be a great game. Never played it myself so I'm very much looking forward to seeing if it's as good as everyone says.

Rather have H2Overdrive ported from arcade. This is hydro thunder by name only, no original developers involved unlike H2Overdrive.
