When I saw the Pod Racers in Starwars: The Phantom Menace my mind automatically returned to these anti gravity racing craft, young Anikin didn't want to be a pod-racer he wanted to play wipEout in real life.
The first thing that struck me about wipEout HD was the immediate familiarity, having not played a wipEout title in years I was automatically comfortable with the layout. The symbols and team names revived memories of the glorious first time I took to the future tracks and raced to 4th place. But when I started the game something was wrong, very very wrong."
