Product Description

SCE Studios Liverpool brings the future back with this second Wipeout game for the PSP. This entry in the racing series features 24 new reversible circuits, a load of fresh high-speed vehicles and some deadly new weaponry. There's also a new track feature called the Mag-Strip, which acts like a magnet and temporarily locks ships to the levels, enabling exciting things like loops and vertical drops. Newcomers to the Wipeout franchise will likely revel over the introduction of a training mode, taking you through the basics. A host of new downloadable content is also available, and for even more excitement, this game introduces a new online multiplayer feature, where racers can battle each other at amazing speeds.
An all-new Photo Mode, which captures in-game screenshots and stores them onto the PSP Memory Card. Like Wipeout Pure, the game features downloadable content, such as new tracks, ships and songs, immediately after release. 7 Game Modes, with Single Race, Zone, Tournament, Time Trial and Free Run returning from Wipeout Pure, plus the addition of the all-new Speed Lap mode, and the return of Eliminator mode last seen in Wipeout 3. The new Cannon weapon replaces the Disruptor Bolt from Wipeout Pure. Eliminator mode features 2 all-new weapons exclusive to the game mode - Repulsor and Shurikens. Zone Mode will now be playable on most (but not all) of the normal tracks instead of custom made tracks. A loyalty system, where players get bonuses for using a particular team regularly ESRB Rated E for Everyone

Pros:
- Visuals far exceed Wipeout Pure and frame rates are very impressive. A shining example of what can be accomplished on the PSP if you have a great development team.
- 24 tracks
- Downloadable and customizable skins

Cons:
- Later levels are punishingly difficult.
- In the fastest levels (Phantom) there are sometimes collision detection errors and as a result you collide thru the track even though you shouldn't.
- You run out of new tracks long before you run out of races so later levels are basically repeats except faster and with more laps.
- Online downloadable tracks appear to be non-existent at this point.
- No new innovations over previous Wipeout.

Overall fans would be proud to call this part of the Wipeout family. First timers will do just fine with Wipeout Pure.

PSP owners have been waiting for a new iteration WipEout since the system launched, and here it is at last.

And it's great! Faster load times than the original, the ability to use custom soundtracks (in addition to the great soundtrack in-game), and new game-modes mean the WipEout lovers will rejoice! That means... I rejoice!

An absolute must-buy for the system. First step? Hit the "add to shopping cart" button at the right of your screen!

This game is a phenomenal, well crafted, brilliantly designed racing game for the PSP and is my favorite racing game on the PSP. I should note that I also own and have reviewed WipeOut Pure as well, and I absolutely hated it for all the reasons that Pulse improved on.

Game Play (5/5): In my opinion this game is one of the most fun racing games available on the PSP, additionally, the game is addictive and will keep you attached for hours. The game definitely has a VERY steep learning curve, is very hard to get the hang of and can definitely be ridiculously hard and exceptionally frustrating. If you have read my critique of Pure, you will know that I hated that game for an almost unending amount of reasons, all of which for me made the game unnecessarily difficult and took away the fun from the game, this game improved on all of that and made the game a real blast.

In my opinion, this game is a vast improvement over Pure for the following reasons. My first complaint in Pure is that the tracks were so narrow and hard to navigate... In this game the track is wider, easier to navigate and give you far more wiggle room to battle other ships. My second issue with pure was that of all the weapons that were available the enemy always got the missiles and stuff and you always got stuck with the shield. Not is Pulse.. In pulse the enemy is loaded to the teeth with weapons and thankfully so are you! My last complaint about Pure was the difficulty from the beginning. Pulse is a lot more accessible to gamers like myself than Pure is and starts out a lot easier. Also, Pulse adds all kind of great modes, my favorite being an elimination mode which lets you battle other crafts... AWSOMENESS!

I downloaded a demo of this game off of the Playstation Network to try it and see if it was any good. The Demo Was great just with the one racer and track you got. Getting the full version made it even greater. The are at least 6 different types of races that you can play. Including Single Race, Zone, Time Trial, Elimination and a couple more. There are 4 different speed classes to play. Slow to Fast. I played Need For Speed games for a long time and so racing is one of my favorite game to play. Of course, Its much faster than NFS. I would recommend this game to anyone who has a PSP system because its a lot of fun and its going to take a little while to beat. I love it and hope anyone who buys this game likes it too. I hope This was helpful

Friggin fantastic. If you're into this style of game, and own a PSP or Vita, then this is a must own. The controls are as good as they can be on PSP's lackluster thumbstick. The sense of speed is still there, and the challenge is definitely there.

I really hope we see this series return in some form.

To be completely honest the thought of Wipeout on a handheld was a little odd for me when I first saw my buddy playing it but... (big but)I have to say that all in all they pulled it off amazingly, the controls are well balanced the graphics are well refined for the system the load times are easily compared to the original Wipeout for PC. If Psygnosis (the company that originally created Wipeout) was still around as a stand alone company this game would have made them a fortune!

As the game has been out for a while now I have to say I am somewhat dismayed at the few new tracks available for download although the option of making your own playlists for the game is "Freaking Sweet" as one of my friends put it.

Wipeout always was, is and forever will be an awesome balls to the wall racing game. If you like racing games and you have a PSP this is a MUST HAVE TITLE!!! I'm telling you now pass this up here or on the used rack of your hometown videogame store at your own risk.
