Love the game

Loved the game on Xbox, love it here. I wish it had local split screen multiplayer, I use to have hours of fun with friends doing this. Also a random bug I found, in Windows 10 when you full screen or resize the screen it does not scale right and you loose the right quarter and bottom of the screen.

The best game so far

This showcases Windows RT / 8 apps at their best. Take your Surface, plug in a controller, use the HDMI out... you have an Xbox in your hands! This is the future! Hydro Thunder on the Surface RT and in Windows 8 (buy once, use everywhere) is the best game in the app store to date. .... -- UPDATE, Windows 10: 2 years later and STILL one of the first things I download to my new computers.

Just as good as the original.

Not bad, some issue with it going larger then the screen when going fullscreen mode. Other then that just as fun as the original.

Great game

I've played this game since the beta came out for Consumer Preview. This version is definitely a huge improvement, but it still lacks multiplayer. I'm also a little disappointed that Microsoft hasn't rebuilt this as a universal app for Windows, Windows Phone, and Xbox.

Good, but incomplete.

This port is missing key components from the Xbox 360 version. Boost Start, Cockpit and Bumper views, and Multiplayer. That being said, the addition of the Tempest pack for free should not be not be overlooked.

Great Game

I've really enjoyed this game. I just bought the full version after playing the trial almost a year. The graphics and sound are great making the game worth the money.
