7.5 / 10.0

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia scratches that itch I get every couple years to play a wave racing game. It is rough around the edges, and lacks a good collection of unlockables, but the core racing is fun. For those like me that are tired of waiting on Nintendo to resurrect the king, this is a great substitute.

It's not bad, it's just not great. Maybe casual/younger race fans might find some enjoyment out of it, but don't jump into this pool unless you find standing around in the shallow end to be fun.

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia doesn't need to be a groundbreaking game to stand out, given the lack of similar games in the Nintendo Switch catalog. Yet, despite some welcome variety of vehicles and racing tracks, it's clear that this game is not up to the challenge. Its controls need to be reworked, the AI is not on a proper challenging level and it's clear from the outset that this was developed for mobile devices.

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia initially appeals for being a rare water-based racer. Scooting around on your jet-ski often feels more like riding a bucking bronco than driving a vehicle, and that makes it stand out from regular landlocked racers.However, it's lacking several layers of finesse and balance, the presentation is deeply unappealing, and those aggressive water physics are a mixed blessing. We're just going to have to wait patiently for Nintendo to return to the Wave Race universe, aren't we?

It doesn't reach the quality level of the old Wave Race games, but it's still a good restarting point for the genre.

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia's combination of abusive obstacles and physics within its gameplay along with a drab visual presentation will certainly make you long for a proper Wave Race-like challenge.

Overall, Aqua Moto Racing Utopia is your average, forgettable racing game, other than the fact that water racing games aren't all that common among the racing genre. Nothing, in particular, makes it stand out from the crowd.

Aqua Moto Racing Utopia wants to be the next Wave Race, but fails to deliver the experience in a few aspects.
