Review: Riptide GP: Renegade – Physics Has Never Been So Much Fun

Momentum. Inertia. Gravity. The study of the movement of liquids. If Newton and Einstein had jet-skis, they probably would have come to the same conclusions, but they would have had a hell of a lot more fun doing it.

It must have been tough for developer Vector Unit to bring all of the above physics elements together successfully in a video game – but with Riptide GP: Renegade – the studio has pulled off an impressive stunt indeed.

Vector Unit has implemented some of the best liquid modelling you’ll experience not just on Apple TV, but on any console. Sure, it might look better on PS4 and Xbox One, but the physics and the feeling of the water’s movement and its effect on your watercraft in Riptide on ATV remains first-class.

Wrap that core element within a fun arcade racer, and the result is an easy recommendation for your Apple TV.
