Best Surfing Game I have played!, October 29, 2002

"Kelly Slater's Pro Surfer" has to be the best surfing game I have ever played. The "Xbox" along with "Kelly Slater..." deliver excellent screenshots and detail. I being from Idaho don't make it to the ocean much but, "Kelly Slater..." gives me a sense of almost being at the ocean. Unlike some games, "Kelly Slater..." allows you to take a course on how to do the basic tricks. It also has some awesome footage of real live beaches, oceans and of course surfers! Surf in the Indoor Wave pool in Japan or hit the beaches in the USofA. There is lot's to do in my opinion. I rate this as one of the TOP 5 games I have played for Xbox, if not the #1 game!
This is the ultimate game for the stoked surfer!, October 24, 2002

I've never been into gaming, or have even considered buying a game console, but when I played this game on the demo PS2 console at WalMart, I was instantly hooked and wanted to buy a console just for this game. After some research, I ordered the Xbox promotional pack with the 2 free games and of course Kelly Slater Pro Surfer for Xbox, understanding that the Xbox graphics are much superior to PS2. As a life long surfer currently on injured reserve recovering from ACL surgery, this game is a God-send. By the time I'm in condition to get back in the water, my three new surfboards should be finished and ready to go. And I'll be totaly stoked and praising the Lord, thanks in part to Kelly Slater and the gang!
Easily the Best Surf Game Ever, October 19, 2002
Reviewer: A gamer from Jacksonville, Florida United States
Having been a big fan of THPS and every surfing game that has come out, I must say Kelly Slater Pro Surfer is by far the best of breed. The game play has that same freedom that THPS brings to the table. The waves and graphics are excellent. There are a potporri of many tricks and real pros to choose from. Career mode will keep you coming back for more and more. The only downer would be for non-surfers; the levels and goals might start to feel the same after the first half of the 16 are unlocked.
If you like skating, snowboarding, and biking games you should enjoy this, I would suggest renting it first. If you're a surfer or keep up with surfing definitely BUY IT NOW!!!!

i saw the kelly slater espn show where him and some other surfers were making this game, they were playing it and it looked really fun, on guy what obsessed and he couldnt leave. they really seemed to enjoy it and i think that we will too, they also said that the moves that they do are are specificly made so it looks just like that specific surfers movement, also all the boards are actually their boards, even the ones they had as kids, im buying it as soon as it comes out
