Honestly, I managed to have a blast playing this game (1000/1000gs). The overall controls and combos are simple, yet the graphics, powered by Epic's Unreal 3, are beautiful. The water was very believable, and the individual characters and courses were exquisitely designed.

The draw was that this was another game in which 100 or more collectable's were needed to finish off the game. I actually distaste that with vigor - I really don't enjoy playing the same level over and over again, but thankfully, they were short and easy.

A bit of advice for achievement junkies:

Go for the main goals first, then work on the idols. It was more appealing that way. This game is an incredibly easy 950gs, and that last 50 is moderate, but very doable. It all depends on whether or not you are a completionist or gamerscore junkie.

I was glad I played this game, and would expect that many of you would be willing to play it other than gamerscore.

Not bad for a rental. Probably wont want to buy it though as it has its limits. One of the quickest Gamer points games. Can hit 950 in about 5 hours. The last 50 points requires some looking and hence more time. Game play is pretty fun. For those 10 hours anyway.
