Summary

This is WipEout at its best, with sweet visuals, a heart-racing soundtrack and high-octane racing, plus a socially-competitive edge

We like

  • Looks and sounds fantastic
  • Excellent range of event types and tracks
  • The promise of an intensely competitive multiplayer arena

We dislike

  • Will be frustrating for those who can't master the tight tracks and compete against the new, aggressive A.I.
  • Long loading times
