Riptide GP Released for Tegra 2 Devices, Mobile Gaming has a Bright Future

Riptide GP was released to the Android Market today and we haven’t been able to put it down.  If you are looking for a mobile game with that “wow factor” then look no further than this one.  It’s really just a jet ski racing game and the concept isn’t anything that you haven’t seen before, but the graphics, environments, and game play will probably make your jaw drop a little.  When NVIDIA stood on stage at CES talking about how much fun gaming would be on their wave of Tegra 2 devices, this must have been what they were referring to.

Check out our video walk-through below.

     How does the iPhone/iPad 1 with a single core have games with better or equal graphics compared to this (that usually runs smoother with the phone/tablet) and it’s only possible with dual-core on android??

      • fuzonic

          actually it was down again and just came up a few days ago and still not fully…you should get your facts straight before telling someone “fail”….makes you look like an idiot…PSN store is suppose to be up on the 24th of this month

      So, you have a lot of $7 PSP games?

        Yes, I do.

     ehhhh…. not sure how to view the future of mobile gaming… Would you pay $20 for a tablet or mobile game? Prices only go higher and these games compared to the remainder of the gaming world fall far behind. I know that mobile tech is moving at a blistering speed compared to consoles/pc but I cant see how the lack of physical controls will dominate the gaming world. I guess in time we shall see.

     It looks great, but why so much?

     Looks awesome, heck of a lot better than waverace 64 on N64oid.  But I still love that game.

      I’m still upset that World of Warcraft isn’t compatible with my Windows 3.0 machine. Seriously, Microsoft, I paid good money just for you to have developers stop supporting it. Those money hungry bastards.

      By the way, iOS has this same “fragmentation” with iOS 4 compared to older versions. It is going to happen with any device. Every piece of technology becomes obsolete at some point, obviously.

        Yea. but I am an Android Fanboy and even I, see serious fragmentation. Rarely do top-end PC games come out out that wont play on hardware released in the same Fiscal year. Comparing to such is ridiculous anyhow. You are comparing Windows vs Android Vs IOS.

        It’s more like, if I buy a phone I am under contract. It should have some guarantee. Iphone 3gs still plays games that the iPhone4 plays for instance. But the Thunderbolt won’t play things that the phones released in the same month play. Or even before! And it’s price point was HIGHER than some of these Tegra 2 devices. This is a real issue, without the trollery you are inflicting.

        Besides, another reason your comparison is mute, is that if my PC I bought in January can’t play a game made in July, I can just go buy a video card or some RAM. Or lower settings to increase performance.That isn’t currently an option. I think it should be.

     It sucks it is only compatible with tegra….. exynos is faster but can’t run it….. I’m afraid we are going to have REAL fragmentation thanks to nvidia…… not trolling I comment here regurlarly
