Showing 1-2 of 2

TV-based game with slapstick violence, poor controls.

  • Summary: Parents need to know that Wipeout: The Game is built around laughing at people falling down. It's presented in a cartoony, over-the-top way, but it still delivers a negative message. You should also be aware that the characters are (supposedly humorous) stereotypes, and that the game is frustratingly difficult to play.

Making A Bit Of A Splash

  • Excerpt: ABC's Wipeout was a great show, when it was known as Takeshi's Castle, a game show originated by Tokyo Broadcast Systems. I admit I never saw the TBS version, but I was a huge fan of the Americanized title Most Extreme Elimination Challenge (eventually known just as MXC.) MXC kept the original Japanese footage but added all new dialogue set more to the tone of an extreme sports show mixed with tons of pop culture references.
