Excerpt: With Wipeout XL, the Playstation had an incredible topgame. Not only did the player get superfast races, he also got a fantastic setting and finishing that completely fitted with the time. After that, the series never managed to convince anymore and the wait was for the PSP version.
Excerpt: There are only a few titles that manage to truly summon up a sense of breakneck speed. Maybe its because a lot of racers have to confine their vehicles to the standard laws of physics and maneuverability based from actual cars.
Excerpt: With the arrival of the PSP, many games are soon to follow, but one question still remains. Are they any good? In this review I will look at WipEout purE, arguably, the best game to hit the handheld scene.
Excerpt: There is very little pure about Wipeout Pure from Sony. The WMG has always been one to stand up for truth in the face of those who would distort the truth. Players get to race in a violent racing game with weapons on these hovercraft type vehicles.
Excerpt: After Wipeout Fusion, many people (myself included) never envisioned another installment to the Wipeout series, especially not one that would stand out amongst the others as one of the greatest in the series.
Excerpt: Unbelievable. Wipeout Pure takes the jaw-dropping graphics that the Wipeout line has consistently brought to gamers and shrinks it down to a delicious widescreen handheld delight. Wipeout Pure literally looks like a PS2 version of Wipeout on a (small) widescreen.
Excerpt: The game that made the first PlayStation was wipEout. It’s not the sort of thing you can argue about. The appearance of the flimsy grey box in nightclubs, with a 3D graphics futuro-racer pumping techno beats out of it, re-introduced the concept of videogames to a demographic who thought they’d grown...
Excerpt: There was a time when futuristic spacecraft racing meant one thing: F-Zero. Then, with the birth of the PlayStation, came Wipeout, a high-octane futuristic craft racing game with great graphics and sound.
Conclusion: All in all, out of a scale of 1 to 10 and 10 being the most fantastic-fabulous-out-of-this- world game, I rate this an…ummm….7. The extra three points were lost due to poor music soundtrack and the lack of a plot line.
