Splashdown is a water racing video game developed by Rainbow Studios and published by Infogrames originally for the PlayStation 2 and was later ported to the Xbox. It was released under the Atari brand name.

It received a sequel, Splashdown: Rides Gone Wild, in 2003, and was published by Rainbow Studios' new owner THQ.


Splashdown is quite similar to Nintendo's Wave Race series. Players take control of a personal water craft as they race against each other on various courses. Players must pass the correct side of buoys on the way, or the personal water craft may stall as a penalty.


Splashdown received mostly positive reviews. It has a Metacritic and GameRankings score of 84/100 and 82.48% and 78/100 and 78.07% for the PlayStation 2 and Xbox versions respectively.[1][2][3][4] IGN gave it 8.8/10 stating the game was highly addictive.Template:Citation needed
