Wow, Powerboat for $1.99

I haven't bought it yet, but this seems like a pretty fair price

Maybe because another boat race was released (WaveBlazer).

I was all set to buy wave blazer and now I'll feel guilty because this is so cheap. I think multiplayer is worth and extra $3 though.

I have both and WB has that speed feeling plus jumps that makes it fun to play. In addition, it is an arcade game rather than a simulation.

More about WB release here (I mean in the topic that this link points to).

How is the multiplayer? I think that's the deciding point for me.

Im holding out for Hydro Thunder to be ported or for someone to bring a game like it in all its glory. It was the BEST boat arcade racer and always will be

I tried the demo of Powerboat and found it pretty dull. So, try the demo first.

Yea, Hydro Thunder was by far the best. I would gladly pay a good amount of money if someone came out with a good, complete port of it. I think I use to have it on dreamcast.
