Need help playing a game? Having trouble with your system? Visit our Nintendo Customer Services Center. Wave Race: Blue Storm makes an adrenaline-soaked splash on the NINTENDO GAMECUBE with stunning graphics, great sound and nonstop speed, speed, speed! The NINTENDO GAMECUBE's blindingly fast CPU has eliminated all the graphics annoyances that plagued old-school racing games, including pop-up, clipping and dropped frames. Even if all eight riders are on screen, Wave Race: Blue Storm zips along with nary a hint of slowdown. Because Nintendo's developers have gone to great length to ensure the game's faithfulness to real-world physics, a personal watercraft will interact with the water in the game just as it would in real life.

The eight courses whisk you through the world's aquatic wonderspots. Shatter gondolas and terrify tourists in the Venice-inspired La Razza Canal. Bear right by polar bears and rapidly crumbling icebergs in Arctic Bay. Each rider is rated for acceleration, top speed, maneuvering, stunt skill and strength

Nature will challenge you with glaring sun, shadowy moonlight, blinding fog, rain clouds, wind, snow and more. Wave Race: Blue Storm's fully interactive environments mean that in a big storm, you may have to cope with both huge waves and crates tumbling from a freighter.

Take on all comers and unlock new tracks in single-player Championship Mode. In Free Roam Mode, you can scout the waterscapes and discover shortcuts without having to worry about a clock, buoys or rival riders. In Stunt Mode, your dual challenge is to race through a course as quickly as possible while completing jaw-dropping backflips, can-cans, nac-nacs, heel clickers, barrel rolls and more. Race your ghost (which takes the form of a bright yellow helicopter) and top your best time in Time Trial Mode. Finally, put the pedal to the metal against as many as three friends in Multiplayer Mode.

* Weather and time of day plays a huge role in Wave Race: Blue Storm, as untamed nature challenges you to the max with glaring sun, shadowy moonlight, whipping rain, blinding fog, clouds, wind, snow and more. Wave Race: Blue Storm's fully interactive environments mean that in a big storm, you may have to cope with waves taller than Shaquille O'Neal while eluding crates tumbling from a freighter. Water drops on the screen and crystal-clear sound add tremendous realism to a game that's truly immersive.

* Each rider is rated for acceleration, top speed, maneuvering, stunt skill and strength. While riders with good acceleration and maneuvering are ideal for short, quick bursts through closely spaced buoys, riders with lots of strength should just try to run over rivals. Bump against a rival and you'll automatically kick them into the water. Ah, but watch out for those buoys that have been cleverly placed by Zelda creator Shigeru Miyamoto!

* Wave Race: Blue Storm offers five modes. Take on all comers and unlock new tracks in the single-player Championship Mode. In Free Roam Mode, you can scout the waterscapes and discover shortcuts without having to worry about a clock, buoys or rival riders. Trick to your heart's content in Stunt Mode. Race your ghost (which takes the form of a bright yellow helicopter) and top your best time in Time Trial Mode. Finally, put the pedal to the metal against as many as three friends in Multiplayer Mode.

* Championship Mode offers four difficulty settings. Clear the Dolphin Park course on the easy Exhibition setting and you'll be able to race for five consecutive days at Normal setting, six consecutive days at Hard and seven consecutive days at the extremely challenging Expert setting.

* In Stunt Mode, your dual challenge is to race through a course as quickly as possible while completing jaw-dropping backflips, can-cans, nac-nacs, heel clickers, barrel rolls, handstands and more. Catch suborbital air off ramps taller than a tsunami. You can even leap off a ramp or wave, plunge underwater and submarine beneath docks, bridges and other surface obstacles. Glub glub!
