'Hydro Thunder GO' on Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone looks good, real good

No secret around here that's we're a bit underwhelmed by the Xbox LIVE for Windows Phone offerings of late. That's about to change in April with Angry Birds and six other "blockbuster" titles coming our way.

One game that was listed but not seen though was 'Hydro Thunder GO', a pretty sweet looking boat racing game that finally brings some arcade action our way. We're actually excited over this title. Just watch the video, pick your jaw up and let us know what you think.

  • Looks very similar to the console version and to be honest, this looks much more worthy of some hype. Probably be getting this and PES, whenever that lands.
  • looks like it has online multiplayer!!
  • I don't think it has multiplayer.
  • This looks pretty awesome! And seems like just another reason to make iPhone/Android users jealous...anyone know of a rough ETA?
  • That looks sweet I could get into that game.
  • Oh, very nice! Is that multi-player action going on?? Maybe only over wifi or something...? Nice graphics and pace.
  • Wow! That game looks really good!
  • Looks awesome, but it better not cost $7 when it comes out. There are some great quality titles on XBL for WP7 but most of them are just way too expensive compared to their iOS and Android counterparts.
  • so true....
  • Very misleading video - it doesn't look anywhere near that good in real life on a real phone, and my phone screen is about half as big as the video above so I would expect the video to look worse. what happened?
