I really adore the presentation on this one. (It kind of reminds me of that game where you're a giant crab?). Very pretty to look at.

But I have to say. I'm not sold on the gameplay yet.

It's probably just the nature of surfing or surfing games but because you can wipe out so easily, some games only last 10-15 seconds. One little mistake and you're done.

Feels a bit frustrating.

It just doesn't have that 'one more go' thing that jet pack joyride and the like, have.

It feels a little disjointed and not a lot going on with upgrades etc.

I don't know. I sound really down on it and it's by no means a bad game. Maybe it just isn't for me.

But feels like a beta or something. It needs something.... More.
