Ok. So if you have read my review for Wipeout 2, you know that I am pretty picky when it comes to these games.

Here's my takeaway: the single player experience and graphics are the best this franchise has ever seen, but the multiplayer has taken a million steps back.

Single Player: The best of the three games. There are so many fun levels, and the achievements make it worth playing over and over again. Furthermore, it doesn't take a million years to unlock everything - my boyfriend and I knocked it all out in a few hours.

Difficulty: The obstacles are challenging, but not impossible. I also like how you can toggle from easy mode to black and blue mode (hard) from the main menu. The black and blue mode isn't much different - but the obstacles don't flash before hitting you like they do in easy mode.

Multiplayer: Here's where I'm torn. The 2 player mode is so much fun! You can actually play side-by-side, which can be hilarious at times. You're also not stuck with computers anymore like you were in games 1 & 2. But here's the thing...the 3-4 player mode is terrible. So terrible. The side-by-side play is no more, and the obstacles you can trigger for each other are useless. Half the time, the person is already past the obstacle by the time you can trigger it...and you can only throw balls at people at specified points during the obstacles, and again, they'd already be past that point by the time you can throw it. I miss the good old days of Wipeout 1, where you chucked tennis balls at each other the entire way through, and they actually flung your opponents off the course. Bring that back for Wipeout 4, and I'm sold!

My only other gripe? The characters aren't as much fun.

My kids (ages 7-15), love it!!! As anyone with teenagers know, it is pretty hard to get a game that entertains them for more than a day. However, this game has been played by all 3 of my kids together and they have a lot of fun with it! They have had it now for almost a month and are still playing it together almost daily.

I have also played this game and had a ball!!!...big balls!!! ahahahah

I also love that there is no blood, guts, or terrible language...it is truly family friendly!!!

I'm a fan of the show, but this game just doesn't measure up. I had the first Wii game, and the controls were funky. This one is just too easy, plus it doesn't feel like you're playing 'with' others in the room, but that each of you is just playing your own game. Yes, you are competing against each other, but you're barely aware of it. At least Wipeout 1 you could hurl objects at your opponent, which was funnier and more engaging. It's neither a workout, nor party game, nor much fun.

By Contrast The App Is Hilarious Fun

Worth all one hundred ninety nine pennies I paid for it. In fact, I'd pay as much as 200 pennies. ...hang on.... *ugh***stretch***grunt ...232 pennies, I just found some in the sofa. Denominations no longer possible north of the border. ;o)

The app is everything this Wii game is not: fun, funny, hilarious, challenging, easy ...fun...hilarious ...well, I've run out of adjectives at the moment, but you get the idea.

Shame the app isn't available yet here on 'The Zon.' Hint-hint nudge-wink.

Really wanted to like this Wii game, but it just ain't got much going for it. The app kicks its arse. Just my 2 cents. But for sure you'll laugh more and have more fun than with this Wii game.

Later dudes. Have a good day, and Big Balls.
;oD

I bought Wipeout 3 for Wii for my 5-year old. He loves the show, and now he can play it (almost) any time. Game play is good, though it's a little to easy if you simply race through the course jumping before every obstacle or challenge. On the down side, the single player mode isn't a challenge to win. I don't think my son or I have ever failed to win. On the other hand, for a little kid, that keeps him interested. The two player mode was fun, but after about 3 or 4 games, it's suddenly locked and we can only play single player. I can't find how to unlock it, so for the time being, we are relegated to playing the easy single player mode.

The characters are fun, and it's easy to unlock new characters and earn money to buy accessories like helmets, gloves, or shoes. The characters each have funny sayings, and the announcers have quirky puns throughout, just like on the TV show. You can even choose to play as hosts John Anderson or John Henson. The wipeouts are, of course, the best part, and you can watch replays over and over and over.

PROs: easy game play, fun wipeouts, lots of characters and gear.
CONs: maybe a little too easy, Multi-player mode locked after the first few games

Considering how many times we have played it, I'd guess it has worked out to about 30-cents per game, and I don't see any chance of letting up any time soon. Worth the purchase price.

After reading the reviews of version 1 & 2 I was hoping for great strides in version 3. Wipeout is an extremely physical game, unfortunately the Wii version is more like watching it on TV. If they had included video recognition on jumping or dodging obstacles or at least the use of the Wii Balance Board you could get a good workout and feel like you had some fun. It is still good for a laugh or two when you compete with each other.
