The game’s lack of balance and polish show through and through at each screen, and while there is some small amount of fun to be had, that creeping sense of boredom immediately rears its head. Whatever the case, the combination of abusive obstacles and physics within its gameplay along with boring and dull aesthetics in Aqua Moto Racing Utopia will make you long for a proper update or revival to Wave Race.
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?
As you can most likely tell, I wasn’t all that impressed by Aqua Moto Racing Utopia. The thing is, it’s not a bad game, it’s just a bad imitation. If it’s gameplay formula were original, then maybe I would feel more forgiving, but like I said in the beginning, this just feels like a cheap knock-off of Nintendo’s own Wave Race. I had more fun riding the jet skis in Namco Bandai’s Go Vacation on the Wii, and that was with full motion controls and the game wasn’t even purely dedicated to that activity—it was just something you could do.
