Wipeout © 1995 Sony Computer Ent. Europe.
A classic to rival Ridge Racer, WipEout is an outstanding game. The graphics are faultless as you blast along, hovering above the ground in an aerodynamic, gorgeously-rendered craft, collecting weapon power-ups and negotiating tough turns. The sound is top notch too: dance tracks by Leftfield, Orbital and others, that mix perfectly with the on-screen action.
There are 12 courses in all - 6 rated beginner and 6 'Rapier' class. In Rapier class you travel the same courses but plays faster and do it in the dark. Gameplay is flexible too. You choose from single circuit races, time trials or can go for championship mode - which is a point-based course progression which requires you to finish in the first three in order to move on.
Released on September 29, 1995 in Europe.
