Summary: Probably one of the better entries in the series, this game has tight controls, varied racers and distinctive tracks. Done a little bit toward the middle of the PS 2 era, it has solid graphics and smooth motion. If you like F-Zero, you'll probably like this as well, though the difficulty slope is rather steep.
My favorite racing game - best in the Wipeout series

Summary: Upgradeable anti-grav units. Easy to handle controls. Ample unlockables that actually add replay value. And yes, I love the music. I can't say enough good things about the Wipeout series, and Wipeout Fusion continues the fun ride that began back on the PSX. This remains my favorite racing game of all time, and one of the reasons why I really don't need a PS3.
Summary: I had this game with my original PS1 and had so much fun with it I had to replace it... good value, lot of fun as far as I'm concerned. Only frustration, trying to get to higher levels and more circuits...
Summary: So, my appreciation of the Wipeout Series actually began with the two PSP titles (Pulse and Pure), which are great games. I understand that the PS2 Fusion was a significant departure in the series from the previous Wipeout games. However, I have never played those games and can only judge it as a stand alone game or in comparison with the PSP sequels; in either measurement, I really enjoy this game.
Summary: Wipeout Fusion has been hailed as the game that killed the Wipeout franchise. Before Fusion, Wipeout 3 killed the Wipeout franchise. Before 3, there was criticism by the hardcore race gamers of Wipeout XL. If you play each game in order, you see that the series has evolved from a slick, mean physics simulation to an arcade game. For that reason, and not having the Design Republic's neo-deco billboards floating around the tracks, this game got flushed by the fans.
Summary: Unfortunately I am one of those Wipeout `fans' who have played and completed all of the various incarnations. Only very recently did I get my hands on a PS2 and a copy of wipeout fusion. To be honest, I thought it was a bit strange that the game moved forward so much in certain areas but lost so many of the features that define the wipeout experience.
Summary: While I won't say this the best Wipeout game ever made I will say it's very, VERY close to being the one. This game will definitely have you on the edge of your seat. For those of you not familiar with the franchise I'll just say a few things. GET FAMILAR! The Wipeout game series is all about high octane arcade racing.
