Description: Hydro Thunder Hurricane is a downloadable high-speed watercraft racing game developed by Vector Unit and is the long awaited sequel to Midway’s Hydro Thunder, released over a decade before. After Midway’s bankruptcy, the rights to the Hydro Thunder franchise were purchased by Microsoft. Because of this, Hydro Thunder Hurricane was first released exclusively for the Xbox 360 via Xbox Live Arcade for 1200 msp ($15) as the second game in Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade 2010 promotion. A Windows 8 version is set to be released on October 26, 2012.
The game supports both local split-screen multiplayer for up to four players as well as an online mode for up to eight players, including a new game mode known as “Rubber Ducky” where two teams crash into each other to make sure their VIP (the player with the rubber ducky boat of their color) crosses the finish line first. The game also has a “credit” system where each event, online and offline, gives you cumulative credits based on your performance that gives you new watercraft, levels, and challenges for different milestones.
Along with the standard 12 achievements worth 200 gamerscore, the game also features two avatar awards that are obtained when you earn 800 credits (where you would get a blue design t-shirt with the logo on it) and when you earn 18,500 credits (where you would get a toy prop of the Razorback). You can also earn two gamerpics: one by winning a race and one by earning 5000 credits.
On October 27th, 2010, a DLC pack was released under the title ‘Tempest Pack’. The Tempest Pack added new skins for the boats, three new tracks, two brand new boats, and new versions of old boats that could be competitive online.
