Today's the day that jet ski racing fans have been (im)patiently waiting for, Vector Unit's Riptide GP 2 is now available on Google Play.

We'll give you a moment to apologise to your F5 key for the abuse you've likely heaped upon it this afternoon.

Good? Good.

Now then, there are plenty of reasons why fans of the Silver Award-winning Riptide GP have been anticipating GP 2 so eagerly. In addition to the new 4-way online multi-player battles, GP 2 adds a new Career Mode that allows you earn cash and XP to spend on upgrades to your hydro jet and repertoire of stunts.

There's also a revamped stunt system, nine new hydro jets to collect and upgrade, and the ability to play however you'd like (within reason) - if you want to play with touch controls, tilt controls, or a gamepad, Riptide GP 2 has you covered.

Android gamers can head over to Google Play now and download Riptide GP 2 for $2.99 / £1.99. iOS gamers will need to wait until Thursday July 25 for Riptide GP 2 to make its way over to the App Store.
