I have no idea if this is what piloting a speedboat is really like or not, but it was believable. It felt weird slamming on the 'brakes' for every curve, and accelerating to 185 MPH in a few seconds. I totally bought the illusion of perspective; in other words the water, ships, bouys etc. were all very well done. However, I've seen much better graphic and sound quality in flash. This kind of reminded me of some 10 year old console and arcade games: very fun gameplay, but dated graphics & sounds.
