This game is weak... I thought it could be a fun little game, especially in multiplayer. I was wrong.

While the graphics are average (Certainly not up to the PS3 standard, bad port from 360?), the whole experience sucks.

The Championship mode is a classic and boring play-win-unlock new map/character. There is a multiplayer mode but the benefits are low, since there is no interaction between the players, all you have to do is get the most points before the time runs out. Worse thing is that the graphics seems to be down-graded in split mode... Shows how much time they spent tailoring the game to the power of the PS3...

The gameplay itself is the most boring part. All you have to do is chain the tricks one after the other and get points that way. Reminds me of Tony Hawk without the possibility of choosing your tricks: the same button would throw various tricks randomly. Overall you have 2-3 buttons for tricks. They tried to take advantage of the movement sensor of the controller but you'll quickly turn it off because it just doesn't fit with the game (Turn left, right, brake... useless).

So basically a game you don't want to rent unless you are under 6 and you are into this lame penguin trend, but then I would recommend the Zoo.

The graphic was off. The game was so boring the reason I could not retun as soon as possibal since my little brother like it. So if your like a 12 or older you would think the game was Dull.

not my cup of tea. no much to the game. it seems that it would be a good one for the younger kids. easy to play and easy to do tricks. was board with it extremely fast. not much to look at. it what i expected for a ps3 game.

Movie to games rarely ever hit. Case in point, Surf's Up. Overall, it is a Surf sim in a movie shell.
