Hydro Thunder

I remember playing Hydro Thunder when there were still Arcade’s left. It was a sit-down boat racing game. It was so much fun, the first time I played, I pumped $20 worth of quarters in it. Then, when it came out on the Sega Dreamcast, my friends and I played it endlessly until we unlocked all of the boats and tracks.

If you’re testing out Windows 8 Consumer Preview, it’s definitely worth checking out Hydro Thunder Hurricane. have fun!
