Wave Break is Tony Hawks Pro Skater on water, and yes, it's as wild, wacky and occasionally wonderful as that sounds. It boasts the same combo-driven, objective-led action that skateboarding fans have come to know and love, and if you've grown up with Mr Hawks' games there's every chance you'll enjoy Wave Break, as long as you can forgive some of its rough edges.

Wave Break puts a lot of barriers up to keep players from enjoying it. The disconnect between the visuals and the difficulty will likely be jarring for many players. But sticking with this game yields some great rewards, and the feeling of accomplishment you get is absolutely worth the struggle to succeed.

WIth a fantastic soundtrack and brightly colored environments, this wacky "skateboating" game captures a wonderful arcade skateboarding experience. The Campaign, however, can harsh the synthwave buzz.
