Surfboarding fans won't exactly get the same thrills out of Surf Riders as they do the real sport.
With few moves and difficult controls, the game is a tough sell even to its target audience.
A general audience will be lost at sea, because the manual does not define terms for non-surfers.
I still don't know what pearling is. I wish the manual and game had more background
information on the sport.
The surfer animation looks positively 16-bit. The graphics as a whole are slightly better, with
colorful but hardly realistic wave and sky effects. Overall, Surf Riders doesn't pack enough
punch to make it worth your time.
