When the original PlayStation landed in Europe back in 1995 one of the best launch games was a strangely capitalised title from Liverpool-based Psygnosis called wipEout. With its combination of Designer's Republic-styling, dance music soundtrack and speedy game play, wipEout was an instant hit, topping sales charts and gathering critical acclaim.
As you would expect, WipEout HD sticks quite firmly to the winning game-play formula that its predecessors have established. You race around tight tracks in high-speed hover vehicles, using weapon pick-ups and speed pads to try and make sure you finish first out of the eight racers. Points for gold, silver and bronze medals open up new events and speed classes.
