      Kawasaki Jet Ski for the Nintendo Wii is a racing game very similar to Wave Race, a game available for the Nintendo 64 and also, a sequel that is available for the Nintendo Gamecube. It is very similar, yet it is also very much an inferior game compared to the aforementioned games in practically every regard.

      This game is impossible to play with friends or family because even with the addition of one other play, the game becomes very choppy.

      By that, I mean the game slows down because


      it cannot handle all that is going on and being displayed.

      While the single player experience is certainly smoother, it still lacks a real sense of speed as at times it almost feels like I am crawling along the surface of the water, not racing.

      This ruins what intensity could have been present.

      Of course, other poor qualities do a fine job of ruining this game, too.

      For example, the visuals in this game are actually inferior to the first Wave Race game on the Nintendo 64, which came ...


      • out in 1996.

        It is obvious that the company responsible for designing this video game put forth very little effort in creating a crisp and visual appealing world for players to play in.

        There is little animation, be it in the water, which is supposed to be fluid after all since it is water, or on the land that I pass while racing.

        The game falls back on static environments.

        Easy to program yes, but ugly to look at.

        Add into the mix a poor selection of characters, jet

        skis and courses to choose from as well as controls that were clearly not fined tuned sufficiently as turning should not be as difficult it is, and what fun that could have arisen out of some good old fashioned hard work and dedication on the part of the developers is washed away and carried off before the player even gets a chance have his or her first race.

        Stick with either the Nintendo 64 or Gamecube Wave Race titles.

        Both are massively superior to this pitiful excuse for a game.
