Kombo writes: It is hard to imagine a time where outrageous and unbelievable video games were as standard as balding space marines are in this generation of games. Hydro Thunder Hurricane reminds me of those days. It should; the franchise was born in the waning years of video games forcing gamers to seriously suspend disbelief.
The Hydro Thunder games were published by the now-defunct Midway Games. The game focuses on boat racing with an extreme twist. The boats are more like intercontinental missiles with buoyancy, and nitro boosting power is just as common as the liquid running underneath the sleek boat hulls.
