3.0 out of 5 stars Takes a while to warm to, from a series fan 23 Feb 2012
By Thom B
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
This game was the reason I bought the Vita, and with the widely publicized Vodafone offer, the reason i went for the 3G model. I am a huge Wipeout fan, and I honestly believe Wipeout HD to be the best Playstation 3 game out. I had extremely high hopes for this game.

My hopes are met; it just took a while to get there. I initially found the graphics to be very underwhelming. Don't get me wrong, it is the best looking PlayStation Vita game I've seen; let there be no doubt, if you got ten gamers who knew nothing about the PlayStation Vita, and somehow managed to hook the Vita up to a TV and handed them a controller, not a single one would be able to tell that they were playing a handheld game. The graphics are *that* good.

The thing that really gets me though is the framerate. The game is capped at 30 FPS, but its not a solid 30 FPS either, and while the graphics have that 'wow' factor, the abundance of bloom and detail, possible anti-aliasing (maybe just blur) combined with moments where weapons start flying and FPS dips result in moments where you can see bleep all and end up face-first in the side of the track. These moments, thankfully, are few and far between, but I would gladly have taken less impressive graphics in exchange for 60 FPS, especially after being spoilt by Wipeout HD's 1080p/60 FPS gameplay. I really think that the low framerate impedes gameplay a lot.

That isn't a dealbreaker, however. Something that really does come close to being a dealbreaker is the loading times. Holy flip do they suck, with loading times up to a minute long for some events.

5.0 out of 5 stars It's Wipeout.... and that's a good thing 23 Feb 2012
By Toad
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Summary : If you've enjoyed Wipeout before, then get this on Vita (buy a Vita for it if you have the funds and haven't got one yet) since this is excellent.

If you've not played Wipeout before then this is what you need to know.

Wipeout is a fast paced futuristic racing game. You race your hovering race machine through various cityscapes and futuristic tracks defying gravity, using offensive and defensive weapons, and controlling your craft with a mix of car and airplane controls (accel, brake, air brakes, roll with stick etc). It's starts off relatively easy and the futuristic setting implies an arcade experience, but towards the latter stages of the game gets hard as nails.

In addition to basic racing there are time attack, combat and zone modes.

This version supports not only Vita vs Vita multiplayer but also Vita vs PS3 thus enlarging the online community at a stroke and it works very well indeed. Additionally the excellent Vita community features mean you can always see what times and performances your friends are putting in and how you stack up worldwide.

Graphically this is one of the best looking and performing titles on Vita and that means it's probably one of the 2 best looking handheld games available today on any platform (the other being Virtua Tennis 4 for Vita).

It really is a no brainer to purchase this game if you have any interest in the racing genre at all, and to top it all this game is developed in Liverpool so we can all feel happy we supported a UK developed product!

One final note - if you have the PS3 version (Wipeout HD and/or Wipeout Fury) Sony have said that you will be entitled to download the Vita version of those tracks as DLC for FREE. A great game gets just a bit better!

Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First game I bought for the Vita and am glad I purchased.

It's fast, smooth and all a Wipeout game should be. The focus appears to be a little more on combat than previous versions but I don't mind.

The tracks are nice and well detailed and the graphics are very nice and bright.

The online is a little basic at present as you can't choose the race type as you want but apparently this will be amended soon.

Overall, anyone who likes Wipeout won't be disappointed, but those that didn't like previous versions will probably not like this.

Great game for me though as a Wipeout fan.

UPDATE

Sony/Studio Liverpool have recently announced that people who bought both Wipeout HD/Fury on the PS3 will also be able to download both of them as FREE DLC in Spring for the VITA which is brilliant as you're basically getting all the content/additional tracks etc from both of those games when you purchase Wipeout 2048 on the Vita so as a package I think thats fantastic.

4.0 out of 5 stars PS Vita's Visual Showcase 26 Feb 2012
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
If there is to be one title that every Ps Vita owner should have on launch it's Wipeout 2048!

The first thing that strikes you about the title is it's visuals. Blockbusters hits such as Uncharted Golden Abyss truly flex the Vitas muscles but for a showcase of the Ps Vitas new OLED screen then this is the game for you. Colours and visuals are vibrant and crisp all running at a smooth 30fps. With so much going on screen you will truly be impressed by the eye candy that wipeout 2048 offers, nothing else comes close to demonstrating the power of the Vita at present. Period.

As with all titles in the franchise you will be expected to make clever use of you power ups and boost to outsmart your opponents as the AI has been ramped up significantly from the standard HD & Fury iterations evident on the PS3. With clever use of offensive and defensive tactics you will have to be quick on those analog and shoulder buttons if you want to stand a chance of progressing from track to track as your senses are pounded with awesome music, sound effects and visuals that will leave you feeling satisfied with the hard earned cash you just parted with (or not if you bought the 3G vita and got this amazing game for FREE).

As expected there are a plethora of tracks and vehicles that can be unlocked as you further progress through the various classes. The campaign itself is impressively long which covers 7 whole seasons which increase in difficulty as you progress. As you move forward through the campaign you will encounter standard racing, battles, phase and lets not forget your standard time trial courses.
