Riptide GP2 Review: Exquisite Hydro Jet Racing Experience, Filled With Stunts (Video)
The first Riptide GP title served as more of a benchmark for the Tegra series devices and now we’ve got a new name in the series, name Riptide GP2. The game costs $3 and we tested it on the ASUS MeMo Pad HD 7, a 7 inch quad core MediaTek slate.
The title comes from Vector Unit and it involves hydro jet racing and crazy stunts. We’ve got great graphics and an appealing OST, filled with DNB and dubstep tracks. There’s also online multiplayer, but what’s lacking here is a quick play mode, so you’re forced to go straight into the career. You can opt for tilt control or virtual buttons shown on the screen, plus you can tweak a variety of options related to graphics (illumination, shadows, quality, textures and animations).
You can also level up and get skill points, that you’ll spend to unlock new tricks to perform. While racing with the hydrojets you’ll come across ramps, that you’ll use to propel yourself into the air and do stunts, like backflips, side flips and other stunts. They will give you boost power, that charges up a meter at the top of the screen and allows you to boost your acceleration.
Career mode races are divided into simple races, time trials, eliminations and stunt exhibitions. We loved this game and it deserves a solid 9.3 out of 10. You can download it from here.
