Wipeout Pure

Playstation Illustrated
10 October 2006
  • 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. The models of the ships are detailed and the special effects are top notch. I was pleased to find that, for the most part, collision detection was excellent as well.

  • 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. Yes, this game is set in the future where getting to race and blow up the competition is somehow acceptable.

  • 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. I am very glad to be able to say that Wipeout is back on top form, on a handheld console none less, with Wipeout Pure.

  • 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 out of them. But it wasn’t just about trendy marketing manipulation.

Wipeout Pure Review

28 April 2006
  • 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. Developed by Psygnosis - a development studio bought by Sony in 1993 - Wipeout was a big hit and went on to receive two sequels on the PlayStation: Wipeout 2097 and Wipeout 3.

Review – Wipeout Pure

videolamer
6 April 2006
  • 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. It’s pretty mindless and repetitive but fun and somewhat fulfilling when you win, especially you if are as competitive as I am.

  • Summary: The futuristic racing series Wipeout seemed to have fallen into a bit of a rut over the past few years, as several mediocre installments tarnished the series' reputation. Happily, the series has been reinvigorated with the release Wipeout Pure on the PSP. The gameplay offers the same frenetic speeds players have come to expect, with a some novel twists. Visually, Wipeout Pure really shines with a cohesive design that showcases the PSP's abilities.

  • Excerpt: New additions to the game include the barrel-roll, which is a small, helpful technique that when used at the right time (specifically mid-air) will give you a boost, that little edge you can use against your opponents. Also, pit lanes have been removed from the game. Now, you simply regain energy from unused power-ups at the push of a button. This keeps you racing longer, and isn't that what we all want?

Wipeout Pure

Portable Review
22 October 2005
  • Excerpt: Wipeout for the PS1 was one of my favorite games. EVER. It’s not quite a traditional racing game, not really a flying game either, but it stands out among scads of racing titles that all seem to copy gameplay elements from one another. The Wipeout developers got it right this time around; tons of eye-candy-flavored graphics, simple easy-to-learn controls, genuinely interesting environments, excellent replay value which makes having 3 or 4 friends, a case of beer and...
