Riptide GP2 reviews and comments

A very nice Game. No Crashes, runs even on Uralt calculators super (Athlon 2 x4 610e (2.4 ghz) + passive GTX 650 ti). Instant Action without Pseudo-Story, so not like in Renegade. I Can only recommend.

So small and yet so good from Storage Space. You can see what is possible. Yes especially very special also a race on the Water which I have been looking for for a Long time with such a graphic, although it is certainly a lot better and I hope to see something again soon.

Was really worth it. Habs Bought for €2 and it offered me 7 Hours of Fun! Very simple Game mechanisms, but bring Fun and make it easy to learn, while at the same time offering Challenges. Good Music, beautiful Tracks. Could offer a bit more Variety but didn't bother me as it was so cheap:D

For €7.00 a very good price for this game, the graphics is wonderful there are many stretch and also track different types of running NIGHT unfortunately play it not very many so that you can play it online often and that there has been no update For me for a very long time Ee clear encouragement to all who like sport-/and racing games play racing Game 9/10 for All 7/10

I bought the Game in the Sale for £2.09. Is really cool for in between, even a Multiplayer as well as Split-screen Mode are available. Graphically, it looks neat (don't expect any AAA Graphics!!!), the Music is very atmospheric and the Tracks are very harmoniously cobbled together. For the Price really only recommended. 9/10 For the Price, you definitely can't go wrong.

This is a nice little game, do not expect very nice graphics, but if you have an old or modest machine, this game will do the trick. http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=953937264 a good defouloire, I play with the controller, keyboard, not try. What to remember, to make freetsyle gives boost. the menu makes me think of "urban trial Freestyle" http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=953937170

Back to the roots. Game! It'S just as much Fun as Waverace did back then. AAAABUT: No Sow plays the Game online. The way I read because you only play 1 Round online. So you wait forever for Fellow Players to be able to gamble for 40 Seconds. Especially with such a Game, a well-functioning multiplayer part is indispensable. But since the Multiplayer is so modestly made, no one is zocking it online. It is a great pity. In the Sale It's buying value (Hab get it to Halloween for 3.49) to rip the Singleplayer through in 2 Days. But the humble Multiplayer is not recommended to purchase this Game for the Normal Price.
