Not only have the developers of this game erased my review, they seem to also have erased my rating of their game. So it seems that they are not satisfied to delete any comments that raise issues, but now even ratings and reviews are not safe from their attempts to control the discussion of their game, and the very restrictive DRM that will leave you with nothing to show for your money, should the company fold, or just decide they no longer want to run the servers.
The game itself is a fairly mediocre jetski racing game, with lots of issues both in control and rendering. On top of that, the "feel" of it is totally off - possibly due to the physics simulation, and the wonky controls do not help.
All in all, I say save your money. Even without the DRM issues, this game is a stinker, but combined with the frankly appalling attitudes and actions of the developers, you'd be a fool to buy their game. Don't be!
It's very pretty, but the physics are awful. Your ski is always perfectly flat. You don't bob with the swells, you don't lean on the turns. I'd really like a PC game that is in the same league as Splashdown for the ps2, or at least as good as Wave Racer 64.
The CD-Key DRM has been proven uneffective time and time again in the history of computer games, only being cumbersome to real customers and not to pirates. Not only that, the game was also falsely advertised on the bundle website. Instead of appologizing the developer says he sees no problems with the DRM and blames the website for the incorrect information. Frustrating experience. The game design itself isn't the best one either. All in all a bellow average.
I gave this game the lowest rating there was because i was and still am disappointed by this game's DRM. I am not against DRM but i think developers need to fully inform you on the drm the game has. When the developer is not informing his customer’s properly then it is misleading (on purpose or not).
After a lot of complaining by the community who actually bought the game it was finally mentioned on the store page on desura. Still if you go the official website of this game (http://www.tropicalheatgame.com) where you can also buy this game it still DOESN'T mentioning any DRM!
It’s good that desura resetted the rating but i only wished the developer learned something from it and stopt misleading his customers.
