    Review Riptide GP: Renegade

    Causing a splash

    From the development studio behind Beach Buggy Racing - a racer similar in many ways to Mario Kart - comes a fresh port of its water-based take on the genre: Riptide GP: Renegade. Opening with a cut-scene showing your character getting busted for competing in illegal races, this game has the potential to fill that Jet Ski...

About The Game

Experience the future of illicit hydrojet racing, where armoured riders kick out death-defying stunts over massive waterfalls, dodge cops through public waterways, and boost at breakneck speeds across surging waves.

You are a hydrojet rider, framed and cast out from the Riptide GP league, forced to race illegally through city waterways, flooded ruins, and churning factory machinery in an effort to reclaim your reputation and your title. Play through the single-player career to unlock new vehicles, playable characters, and customisation features as you take down bosses and build your crew.

Then, take your skills online* for the ultimate test as you battle opponents around the world in eight-player online matches.

Challenge your friends for leaderboard supremacy in the ghost-racing challenge mode. You can even play locally in split-screen races with up to four players**!

Featuring thrill-ride race tracks packed with shortcuts, secrets, and interactive obstacles, Riptide GP: Renegade is the action-arcade water racer for a new generation.

Thrill-ride environments

Blast across floating factory platforms, brave hurricane-strength waves, and infiltrate a military base in the midst of battle. Every race track is packed with interactive set pieces, dynamic obstacles and secret shortcuts.

Deep career mode

Battle your way through a variety of races and boss fights to reach the top of the underground hydro jet racing circuit. Earn cash and experience to upgrade and customise your hydro jet, unlock new stunts, and increase your rider's performance.

Online multiplayer

Compete online in thrilling eight-player matchups against the best players from around the world.

Split-screen multiplayer

Challenge your friends in local split-screen multiplayer championships. Play with up to four players on a single machine!

Transforming vehicles

Collect and upgrade a garage full of blisteringly fast hydro jets that transform while you ride them. Win money to upgrade and customise each one.

State of the art water racing

Riptide GP: Renegade brings dynamic water racing to a new level of excitement with breathtaking water physics, splash-tastic spray effects, and more! Every race is different because the surface you race on is always changing.
