It's been awhile since I've actually taken the time to post here, but I've been heavily occupied in school work over the past few months.
Now that I've said that, let's get to the point.
I've been playing Splashdown on the PS2 for some jet-ski action over the past couple days. To put it simply, I hate it. In fact, I can't recall the last time I have ever hated a game as much as I hate Splashdown.
Having played Splashdown's career mode on its "normal" difficulty setting, I've thoroughly found myself being the victim of what can only legitimately be called cheating -- specifically, rubber-banding opponents. There have been more than a few instances where I've completed a near-flawless race, eyes aglow with the prospect of a first-place finish, only to wind up having to restart because I haven't finished in a high enough position to advance to another race. And whenever I did finish well, it came off more as a scornful "it's about time" instead of a satisfying "YES!"
If I can get my bearings together -- or stock up on bulk aspirin -- I'll be posting a ripping Splashdown a new hole in the near future. Provided, based on my experience with the game, I don't actually get angry enough to puncture a new hole in the game disc beforehand.

I often play games I hate so I can then make fun of them.
I tell myself it's pefectly normal behaviour.
I don't need help.
Summary -- Go for it!
