Critic Reviews for Wave Break

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.

If you love a "totally radical!" style and want to lay down some “skateboating” tricks, Wave Break is the game for you. While the high learning curve and nonexistent online base may turn off casual players, Stadia fans that want a fun little game on the platform should check this one out.

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.

Wave Break has so many redeemable qualities, but for every positive there is a negative. Large diverse levels are hampered by the fact there are only six of them, fun fluid game play marred by jarring camera angles and frequent clipping, a rocking soundtrack only to be let down by performance issues such as frame drops. Underneath these issues is a fun homage to the Tony Hawks series, and fans will most certainly look past them while others would expect better.

If this was a free-to-play title, I may even be a bit more lenient with it, but at half the price of a full retail game, I honestly can't even recommend it for a laugh. I'm calling it. It's time to abandon ship.

Wave Break is one of those titles that we have to hold on to for the time being and wait for the release of the game for other platforms. One of the main parts of the game is the multiplayer part, which has not been able to show the potential of the gameplay due to the lack of players. The campaign section is also worthless and repetitive due to its low content. Things like gameplay and interesting music are the only positives of this title, which is still not a strong reason to pay 30$ to experience them.

Now that it's free from the shackles of Stadia exclusivity, Wave Break can now be enjoyed by those on Switch and PC. The game has its foibles, and it's not as smooth as Tony Hawk's Pro Skater, but it's a good time. Funktronic Labs needs to add a 'quick restart' feature, pronto. The combination of guns and skateboating amid the bright aesthetics makes for great fun. There's good reason why I can't stop playing and trying to perfect each level. If you can't beat the heat this Summer, then soak up the sun in Wave Break.
