Excerpt: There may just be two kinds of people in the world, those who count themselves among the fans of futuristic racing and those other folks. Or is it those counting themselves among the fans of battle-racing titles and those preferring their racing pure as the driven (no pun intended) snow? Whatever and wherever you may count yourself, the only reason not to read on is if you can firmly say that futuristic, battle racing is not for you.
Excerpt: game in years, but it was the best PSP game for months on end. Thankfully, Studio Liverpool was well prepared to extend the length of the game with a ton of downloadable content after the game shipped. Now, almost two full years after the first PSP game, Studio Liverpool has returned with a sequel that's lengthier, more paced with variety and manages to squeeze even more juice out of the continually surprising PSP hardware.
Conclusion: As far as game modes go, they are mostly the standard fare. Single Race allows you to compete against bots in a track of your choice. Tournament mode is composed of various championships that will test your skills by pitting you against difficult computer-controlled opponents. Time Trials let you race alone and record your best times while free play discards all the rules and lets you race just for fun. The most unique addition to the game is the Zone.
Conclusion: WipeOut Pulse is een knappe must-have voor wie nog nooit de serie gespeeld heeft op de PSP. Jammer genoeg valt er weinig echt nieuws te rapen en de iets leukere presentatie en meer vrijheid kunnen het sterke déjà vu-gevoel niet verdringen. Ben je echter fan, dan zal dit je ongetwijfeld bevallen!
Conclusion: Wipeout Pulse mantiene le promesse: sfrutta le solide basi lasciate dal predecessore, Pure, per riproporre un gameplay frenetico e sempre fresco, accompagnato da una realizzazione tecnica di tutto rispetto (leggasi: grafica molto fluida e di alto livello, controlli perfetti e musica davvero bella da ascoltare) e da un divertimento assicurato. Un must per i possessori tutti i possessori PSP, siano essi amanti delle gare o no.
Pros: Suvvia, e' Wipeout!, Ancor più veloce, arcade e divertente., Level design molto curato., Comparto tecnico solido e dettagliato.
Cons: Se non vi piace il genere, lasciatelo sullo scaffale.
