Driver Speedboat Paradise Review (Ubisoft)

Driver Speedboat Paradise
What It Is

Driver Speedboat Paradise from Ubisoft is an arcade-style, speedboat racing game. You compete in races in different locations that are tied together by an ongoing story. There are different race modes including a typical course race, a drag race, and escape races where police boats grab the speed boats at the back of the pack during a race.

The boats accelerate automatically and you have two choices for how to steer. You can either tilt your device, or use the on-screen touch controls. As you play, you earn money and rewards, which can be used to customize and upgrade your boat, and you will definitely need to do upgrades if you want to progress in the game. You can also purchase additional boats.

Is It Fun?

The graphics in this game are beautiful and the different race modes keep the game interesting as you play along. The simple, intuitive controls also make this a game that you can pick up and play without a lot of tutorials.

Who It’s For

Speedboat Paradise is for racing-game fans, ages 12 and up. Although the racing sections are suitable for all ages, the story does make some alcohol and smoking references plus there's some crude humor and lots of bikini-clad women.

What To Be Aware Of

The game is free to play with in-app purchases for real money.

Driver Speedboat Paradise is available for iOS and Android devices.
