Description from the packaging.
Race a million-dollar super boat through 3-D courses.
Seven ton, fifty-foot monsters. Computer designed. Hulls 38 times stronger than steel. Each behemoth can cruise near 100 mph - and their V-8 turboprops can puree the ocean like a blender.
Race head-to-head against 4 computer opponents.
Captains courageous. Scout out their boats, skills and stats - then watch the heat from a variety of camera angles and zooms. Battle it out under the bridges- but stay sharp. It's a long dog-paddle home.
Bring the ocean to a boil,
The rumble like thunder in the distance. The unmistakable sound of 3200 horsepower ripping apart a calm sea.
The superboats are coming.
Heat Wave: Offshore Superboat Racing puts you at the helm of 4 nautical thoroughbreds as you compete on a circuit of realistic, three-dimensional courses.
A fast fleet of 4 computer skippers stands between you and the most prestigious title in all of powerboat racing: US 1- best in the world. Buckle your life vest, it's going to be a bumpy ride.
Race on open ocean, rivers and through city canals.
What'll it be, skipper? Capsize a few canoes on the Mississippi or wake up the citizens of Miami? You've got 6 world-class race courses to roostertail through- or create and save your own custom course.
Race in different weather and water conditions.
Mother Nature takes her best shot. Your Superboat rocks in squalls- bounces in angry seas. Cut a wave wrong and you'll flip like a penny. Navigate by compass, landmarks or Loran. This is real racing, wakes and all.
Perform on-board repairs via the 3-D pit screen.
It's mid-race. You've blown a prop. And the pit crew is six miles away on a dock. What to do? Call up the high-tech Pit Screen. Inspect your ship from stem to stern, make repairs, then get the hull outa' there.
