Summary

WipEout HD is one of the best PlayStation Network games to date, and the only decent futuristic racer on a home console since 2003. It doesn't look half bad either.

We like

  • Gorgeous, vibrant graphics
  • Blistering speed at a steady 60 fps
  • Solid online play

We dislike

  • Only two-player local multiplayer
  • 'Remake' rather than an original title
