Wipeout never really got the praise it deserved. It's a fantastic game albeit very difficult. I feel bad Sony wasn't able to keep the studio alive.

Some feel Wipeout was one of the first true adult themed games for consoles because of it having the first soundtrack made intirely of music from actual artists that you could buy on your own. And its difficulty. Sony showed early that they were willing to take risks and look at different kinds of IP's for the PS1. Wipeout is a true classic.
