5.0 out of 5 stars My best game, 2 April 2010
This review is from: Wipeout HD Fury Game PS3 (Video Game)
I will be upfront and honest. I am a long time Wipeout fan. This game however, is outstanding. Not just a great Wipeout game but one of the best I have ever played.

The Wipeout series may have drifted a little, particularly with the switch to the PSP for a few years. They do offer a highly charged racing experience albeit a frustrating one.

This game is the original download only plus the Fury expansion pack on one disc. If you don't know, the racing is on hover sleds with weapons and run on rollercoaster tracks. You blast the blazes out of your opponents as you scream to the finish line.

Wipeout has had a makeover. Back to the glorious colours of the 2097 era, back to thumping trance music, back to the frantic high speed thrills the series was famous for. Graphics are the best you will ever witness, music is outstanding and fits perfectly, handling is excellent, you get the drift.

The tracks are lifted from previous games including the PSP and are ace. Improvements include a new HUD and interface. The most significant is the pilot assist. Wipeout has always been difficult because track collisions slow you down and bounce you about. The pilot assist function prevents track collisions by bouncing you back on track. It works a treat (you can turn it off) and makes a huge difference. Racing is blisteringly fast with no slow down all you need to deal with is the odd shudder. It ramps up the excitement.

There are plenty tracks and variations and different styles, the usual single race, time trial, elimination, zone mode etc. All the usual craft are back again with plenty variants.

On-line is a duplicate of the single player and is just as fun to play.

For me, this is on the podium of racing games along with Gran Turismo 5 (assnming it is good) and Forza 3. Wipeout Fury is a delightful racing game that any true racer will enjoy and embodies the essence of console racing. You like racing? you must try this. Just remember, you are a pilot not a driver.

Wipeout Fury on disc features the original Wipeout HD and the Fury DLC. You are probably better off buying the disc. However, if you sign up for Playstation Plus you get Wipeout HD free and only need to buy the Fury DLC (which is worth the money).
