Superior water-based racing game coming thru.

>> No.7778891

Game only had 4 "tracks". It felt like a tech demo with so little content.
I always wished there was a squeal with 12+ tracks, since the core game was really good, and the water was super impressive at the time, was impressive even when comparing to gen 6 shit.

The first game was made by the superior nippon EAD, the sequel on the GC was made by Nintendo Software Technology, the Saturday animo presentation were the least of the game's problems, the game was also choppy, sure the N64 was a bit slow specially the PAL version but it was smooth.

One thing I love so much about this game is how it controls. It takes a bit to get used to but it really does feel like you're forcefully ripping the jet ski side to side. In order to make a really sharp turn you have to hold down on the control stick to pull back. It actually gives you such a fine level of control as pushing forward or pulling back while turning helps to make softer or harder turns.

The time trials require a real N64 to get legit records, not even the Wii VC is good.
Trying to get the best time is a lot of fun, get the fat guy and configure the jet ski to be easier to curve and max speed.
The gameplay is perfect, the waves interaction is just incredible specially considering how early the game was, when you think about it the game has no right to be this good.

I wanted Mortal Kombat Trilogy or Killer instinct but a relative got me Wave Race for my birthday. There weren't many games out for the N64 and even Pilotwings would've interested me more but my second game on the N64 was fucking wave race and I was pissed since I wanted a game with action.
My mom told me I could wait and exchange it for another if I didn't open it but I was 10 and couldn't wait so of course I opened it up despite not being a game I was excited to play. Overall I enjoyed it but only to an extent since I wasn't a huge fan of racing games. I played it tons though, mostly since I didn't have much else to play. I liked it. I did eventually get MKT and KI Gold which I didn't like much. Overall I'm glad I got this game.

I've mentioned this a few times on here. It's really a fun game that gives off a terrible first impression. It's more faithful to the original Wave Race than Blue Storm. You must memorize the tracks in this, otherwise the AI will mince you.

It does get pretty difficult especially in the later stages like in Bluestorm but the watercraft seem a little easier to control in wave rally. There's also no water trail effect on the enviroment from opponent's vehicles which makes it less frustrating to play.

I like how some tracks open up shortcuts depending on the tide, other than that its just another bland racing game.

Devil's Forest 3: upside down mirror track, perfect for practicing drifting
Big Blue: track is mostly a cylinder, which has its own physics different from standard road
Silence: straight track that twists, going too fast without holding forward will cause you to fly off the track when upside down

This game has mysterious shit going on with its tech and hidden depth. You can dive underneat water if you aim the jump just right and use a specific button combo (Needed for a shortcut in Twilight City), and theres a bunch of other hidden tech with the buttons for control and finesse of the watercraft not explained anywhere else. I saw some guy on YT doing speedrun demonstrations and having a cam on his controller as he played and nearly shat myself. I miss when Nintendo games had hidden complexities, N64 had a lot of those.
