    Wal-Mart has Splashdown for the Xbox for $19.82, so I picked up a copy today. My first impression is that it's a fun game, looks good & has solid control. It supports custom soundtracks. [​IMG]
    So far, the waves are nothing on the level of either of the Wave Race games, but the Sea-Doos bounce & slide in a fun if slightly arcadey way from what I've played so far. There are the usual tricks to perform that are typical for this genre of game, which help to keep your speed up & don't really get too much in the way of the racing, which is important to me.
    I'll try to post some further impressions after I put some more play time into the game, but at $20, those of you looking for a game of this genre can't go wrong.

    Dan head over the your local Eb store (EB, EBX, Stop and Save and so on). They have a used game sale. Buy 2 get 10% off, buy 3 get 15% off, buy 4 get 20% off. I picked up Buffy, Crazy Taxi 3 and NFL2k3 today. Each store has a different selection of course but they probably a pretty much the same
