Wipeout HD (PS3)
Advantages: Stunning graphics
Disadvantages: Not an amazing online leaderboard
WipeoutHD should be played in HD! It's ok without HD but it's amazing with HD and it runs smoothly at 60 FPS, (Framer per second). The game is where you race "cars". They are hover cars/spaceships that can pick up abilities and attack enemy cars. The game is no doubt set in the future. The game's graphics are stunning and the visual design is fantastic. For £11, this game is a must get off the Playstation Store as it is like a full game more or less.
The graphics are the thing that may hit you the most when first playing this game. You will notice the flashing neon lights, all colourful and a million lights flashing and moving smoothly as you race and leap at half a thousand mph across futuristic detailed tracks.
The controls are simple. They are easy to pick up on and the steering is not very flexible which makes it realistic when spinning around a corner out of control. The controls feel realistic and your car/ship feels heavy which is a good thing.
The features in the game are good. You get different types of single player game modes. Time trails, racing modes, and a mode where you have to go around a track getting higher the rounds. Your car get's faster and you must not hit the sides, the more you hit the side, the more your car will explode. This game mode is fun and there are a lot of online game modes which are fun to play with friends or with random people across PSN. You can play tracks in reverse mode and you can get bronze, silver and gold trophies for each event. To achieve platinum in this game, it is very hard but it challenging. There are also difficulty levels which make it even harder when racing in advanced events.
The online is fun and nothing is more satisfying than rocketing someone or blowing up someones ship with a laser. You can have a lot of fun and there are leaderboards and ranks which are good. You can have a lot of fun with this game, online and offline and there is a sandbox game mode where you can choose track, difficulty, customize rules/options etc..
There are also additional things that you can do in the game as well which make it last long like unlock skins for your ships. There are a lot of unlockables and going for trophies in this game is fun. Great game and suitable for everyone to play, worth £11, great game and will last you a while!
Summary: Great game with stunning graphics, hardly any bad things about it.
