There was a mix up and I wrote this a week ago. Well, I’m writing this now but it will go live in a week. So I apologise if something has happened to erase WipEout from the space-time continuum in this coming week. If it has, let’s just pretend we’re all talking about F-Zero.
WipEout HD should be a fairly popular game (if it still exists). After all, it’s been given away to all PlayStation Plus members and it was part of the Welcome Back Pack after the PSN downtime. That doesn’t mean you enjoyed it, though, does it? So, as always, we’d like to know what you thought of it, don’t hold back because you might have got it for free, and don’t be overly harsh because you paid for it when you could have got it for free. Just state your honest, beautifully articulated opinion.
WipEout is a great game – at least I think so – racing without wheels is quite literally the future and it’s a lot of fun. It looks beautiful too, there’s no denying that seeing WipEout HD in 1080p is marvellous. But that’s enough of my opinion, Alex scored it a 8/10 in his review, praising the graphics but stating that it is just an upgraded version of Pulse.
If you’re excited for today’s PSN update and can’t wait to get your hands on HD then you’ve got a solidly crafted, highly playable and visually stunning upgrade of Pulse. If you’re expecting much more than that, well, you’ll be disappointed. It’s a game that surely proves that the PS3 is capable of 60fps 1080p graphics, something it does with aplomb, but there’s nothing here we haven’t already seen before. A tricky one, to be sure, and the budget price offsets the issue slightly, but we’d love to hear what you think once the download appears on the Store later today.
I can’t agree, since I’ve never actually played Pulse – but I agree it’s a solidly crafted game. You might think it controls horribly, looks grotesque and lacks fun, or you might agree; whatever it is, we’d like to know. You know the drill.
What? You don’t? Oh, okay then, as per usual you should head over to the forums and leave us your thoughts on the game. Whilst we’re not going to discount longer reviews, please remember that the aim is for short, snappy opinions. More than that we simply don’t have the time to wade through longer reviews, so if you want to have your opinion included in the verdict post try to keep it short.
Once you’ve written your review make sure you give it a score on the Buy It, Bargain Bin It, Rent It, Avoid It scale. Remember, if you want your score and opinion included in Monday’s verdict post you need to have it done by Sunday afternoon, otherwise the post’ll be written and you’ll be left out in the cold.
