PS3 Fanboy review: WipEout HD

PS3 Fanboy: There's been a lot of buzz around WipEout HD. The headlines of the game's epilepsy-inducing delay, combined with its genuinely good looks have created the perfect environment for hype to thrive. The long-delayed futuristic racer is the PlayStation franchise's first foray into the current generation, and it looks absolutely stunning. The bargain basement price point of $20 makes it an easy purchase, especially for those on the fence.

More after the Jump (PS3, Wipeout HD) 8/10

PS3 Fanboy has never been a fan of racing games
Doesn't matter though.... Still a day-one purchase.

Hahhah, look at me, I'm complaining about an 8/10... that's sad

I dont think they have ever been much of a PS3 fan either.

lol oh the irony

Blah blah, they said something negative about your game, they're anti-sony now :P silly. The only thing that I don't like about wipeout is weapons...I don't like weapons in futuristic racers. I like the game a lot though.

UNCyrus  +   2320d ago
oh Steven... forever the patriot, are you really counting on G.I. to give you something other than spam?
TheColbertinator  +   2320d ago
Yes and I will accept it as truth
Panthers  +   2320d ago
Ill take IGN as truth. The only site I trust anymore.

Only 2 days to go :)

I can't get it until Friday, so 3 DAYS for me.

I don't mind the single day wait, though. I know it's going to rock face.

Day 1 purchase

Review was a decent read and had some good info on what to expect.
MaximusPrime  +   2320d ago
im sooooo looking forward to this game and its awesome soundtracks
thor  +   2320d ago
I hope they can add elimination mode and some brand new tracks as DLC! How about some of those crazy branching-paths loop-the-loop different-layouts tracks from wipeout fusion? I wouldn't mind paying as well since the initial game is so cheap!

In this review they talk about the "rubber-banding AI", but really (from what I can see) they are complaining about the LACK of rubber-banding AI (the way it should be IMO). If you lag behind, you're unlikely to catch up. If you can't get to pole position in the first lap because you're racing too slowly, you're not exactly likely to close that gap unless your lap time increases by a LOT.

Oh and I'm a hardcore wipeout fan, but I didn't get the PSP games. I don't exist according to PS3 Fanboy.
DJ  +   2320d ago
I noticed that as well.
Then again, PS3Fanboy isn't exactly a big news source. The fact that they divided us up into three weird categories wasn't all that smart either, especially since they simply didn't have enough hands-on time with the game to become skilled at it.

Fantastic score,WipEout HD will be in my hard drive in less than 2 days

Day one purchase for me
This is one of the many games that will continue to drain my wallet through the year and into 2009.

Wipeout = Poor man F-Zero. Nuff said.
ThatArtGuy  +   2320d ago
When the first Wipeout was released, F-Zero was still in Mode 7.

Day 1 purchase.
For me.....
Nasty  +   2320d ago
Must Have
Can't wait to start shooting people off the track in this game.

Ps3's PSN games are better than their disc based games ahhahahaahahahhah! What a bust of a year. "year of the ps3" yeah, right.

Rsistance 2 - bust
LBP - bust
Motorstorm 2 - bust

That's their big 3 disc based exclusives. What a junk bunk joke. Then again, xbox 360 ain't much better.

Fable 2
Banjo nut and bolts
Gears of war 2
