But to be honest (unless the patch fixed it) the load times aren't actually that bad. You're looking at maybe 15-20 seconds to wait for a race to load and its not that painful in my opinion. Nothing worth taking a point away for!
Getting away from the load times, this is a great game.
You get exactly what you would expect from Wipeout in a handheld device.
1) Great visuals.
2) Fast and pounding and surprisingly good music.
3) Very simply controls.
4) Insane fast races with twists and turns.
5) A nice variety of offensive and defensive weapons.
6) A good variety of race types.
7) A good selection of tracks and vehicles.
On top of that, you get an extremely impressive and intuitive interface which has been specially designed to use the Vita touch screen. It feels natural and looks superb.
The online matches are just insane too - basically a death match in a race, with the ability to turn a 360 and go for the person behind you and switch again.
It all just works very well.
The online is a breeze to get into.
The races are easy enough to start up.
Selecting your speeder is easy enough.
You can also very easily join a game with someone on your friends list.
You level up too and gain ranks and unlock more.
Now add this to the fact you can also use the 'Wipeout HD/Fury DLC Content' with the game, and this then adds A LOT more speeders, tracks and racers to take part in. And if you have already bought the 'Wipeout HD/Fury DLC' on the PS3, its then FREE to download and install on the Vita.
Its absurd how much more content that DLC adds to Wipeout 2048.
It really is hard to find anything wrong with this game... except for the difficulty maybe!
It doesn't take long before the game soon ranks up the difficulty and it can take several attempts to beat some very early races. But its meant to be a challenge and the idea is to unlock better speeders to then beat those races.
One small gripe I do have, is that the DLC tracks/racers don't appear to add to your experience if you beat them.
The Wipeout HD/Fury content is fun but if it doesn't add to your rank or experience... its a bit disappointing.
It seem you can only level up in the main story career for the actual game.
Studio Liverpool really did a good job with this game on Vita. The tracks, ships & combat elements of this game provide massive amount of fun and challenges. I've not played the multiplayer aspect of the game, but I have no doubt that this will only expand the hours of entertainment that Wipeout 2048 provides. If you want a classic & quality game for your Vita, then you won't be disappointed with Wipeout 2048.
Multiplayer Crossplay which allows you to race against up to eight players simultaneously including PS3 players.
10 new tracks
Hours of fun!!!
I discovered you can play you're own music from the music application on the Vita system as well, and when you play your own music, the game's music automatically stops, the sounds effects stay, so its essentially replacing the music if its not to your taste.
The loading speeds of levels seems to be a constant complaint as well, with load times being from 30 seconds and up, this is the only downfall I can give the game, but the Development team have said they will release updates for free along the way! The game was a quick release and this will be fixed in time.
Overall, the best racing game I've played in a long time, best on the Vita, and is a perfect companion to the PS3 version.
PS: The loading times are awful, but this is common with most of my Vita titles and is an issue with the Vita's design rather than the game itself.
