Reminds me of old school N64 style racers. Lots of fun. Turn the speakers up loud and be ready for fun chaos. Graphics are good, sound effects are great. The Asgard level was a blast seeing Thor and him yelling at the racers. Cant wait to play more..... after work..... My Kids loved it too.More
Fun, entertaining, beautiful.
Hydro Thunder Hurricane is a water-based racing game, where you race along large, living, action-packed maps. It was originally released for the Xbox 360 back in 2010, and now, it has been ported to Windows. The game promises pure fun wrapped in a nice little package, and boy, it sure does deliver. I've enjoyed every ounce of it. The maps are all very unique, and have a very beautiful aesthetic to them. The environments contained feel alive and various events happen, adding to the action and making the game harder, along with faster paced action. The game is very well optimized for all platforms. Controls can be modified; keybinds can be changed, heck, it has gamepad support, and you can even change the control layout for that. The graphics settings are a bit weak, but that's ok. I love this game, and I picked it up for 10 cents, an insane steal, considering it is 9.99 when not on sale. Anyways, this game is awesome. I recommend it. Go out and get it!!! DO IT!!More
Best aquatic racing game since the original Hydro Thunder.More
Can't Play Full Game
I paid for the full game but can't access it. It takes me to the unlock screen even though I can see that I have paid for it. The trial is fun, but I wish I could play the full game and hope this gets fixed soon.More
this game is awesome I didn't buy the xbox 360 version, so I got it for my laptop and runs great. There is an option for the graphics setting in case you need to adjust for your pc. Overall very fun game no multiplayer though.More
Fun but still on Trial version.
I loved the original Hydro Thunder so I thought I'd give this a try. It's just as good if not slightly better than the original, the controls feel the same, there's plenty boats and "tracks". Graphics are decent as well. Multiplayer would be great for this game but single player will have to do and still pretty fun. *NOTE* Like other people here I can not get the full version unlocked after paying and re-downloading so stick with the Trial for now.More
One of he best arcade games now on my computer with all the graphics and sights and sounds. Awesome!More
really solid game...
not bad at all! its not as good as the original on dreamcast but still worth the 10 cents I paid.More
Great but can't access full version.
I used to play this game a lot, so I got the demo back on 8.1. I just purchased the full game today and every time I open the game it directs me to unlock the full version... Hopefully this will be fixed soon. Hate to think I just gave 10 bucks away for a game I can't play.More
Even better than the original
I never thought I'd be saying this about a remake, but even though this game is substantially different than the original Hydro Thunder game, it is actually a lot more fun. My favorite mode is the ring challenge: think time trial with infinite boosters, if you can stay on the designated race line! I only miss multiplayer mode split screen mode. Oh well. Can't have everything, right?More
