Editors’ Choice

This breakneck chapter in the Riptide GP series is so intense, it’s got us reaching for a life jacket. Or maybe several: Renegade’s solo campaign packs tons of water-racing events and sick tricks to master. (Split-screen local and eight-player online matches are our favorites.) However you play, stunning tracks like a gorgeous forest river deliver awesome arcade thrills. On Apple TV, it's our 2016 Game of the Year.

A great game from start - esthetics, game fluidity and physics are spot on.

Great game, installed it based on the great reviews and a recommendation from an online blog. Hate playing games where someone else with a credit card gets ahead. This levels the playing field and I believe is well worth the price. I’m always on the lookout for new apps, not big on racing games ... more strategy then anything. But it’s simple and complex enough that just about anyone would enjoy it. Graphics are refined but not overbearing or so intricate that they render odd or drain your device resources .... gameplay fluidity and physics feel great. I’m particular about that as I’m a fan of flight and simulator games. Decided to install today and found my self playing until my “low battery” notification made me realize how long I’d been on. Im not a big gamer, but this truly is a classic arcade style game I want to keep around.

Excellent water physics and great online racing

This is one of the best racing games I've played. My first racing game was Pole Position (guess that gives away my age) but I've enjoyed numerous racing games including Gran Turismo and many F1 games over the years.

This game has excellent water physics, which means you get bumped around a lot by waves, just like you do on a jet ski in real life. You really have to think quick and make constant micro-adjustments to 'land' on the water correctly, on both the big jumps and also on the small micro-jumps in choppy water--to get the best times.

Online play is fantastic! Some keys to success include:
- on jumps, always get your jet pointed in the right direction before landing,
- use most, but not all, shortcuts (some are actually slower),
- know when to use tricks (and when not!)
- know the best trick for each jump (tip: don't do a big trick that'll give you more boost than your boost meter can hold; that just wastes time),
- save your boost to use at the optimal time (many folks use it right away, which isn't always the best way to use it)
- when behind, draft others for extra speed,
- play online, watch the fastest drivers, then do what they do!
