    Wipeout 3 is an excellent racing game. It has a great theme and well-designed tracks. It has addictive game modes, awesome weapons, and unique aspects. One of the only things that stick out like a sore thumb is the controls, which could be smoother, and are slightly frustrating (slightly!) . If you're collecting PSX games, this is a MUST!

    Not as big a leap from "Wipeout XL" as XL was from the orignal Wipeout (and I still think that triple pronged rocket from XL is the coolest racing weopon out there), but it's an excellent evolutionary step. The tournaments are incredibly hard, and I still haven't finished the game, and it's like 2 years later. But still, the series (and this 3rd installment) are brilliant!

    If at all possible, get the Special Edition. The standard tracks and craft from WO3 give you a total of 192 single races to win on Vector, venom and Rapier speeds, and that's not including the tournaments or challenges. The special edition's extra 8 classic tracks from W'O'' and WO2097 double that number, and there are brand new challenges and tournaments on the If at all possible, get the Special Edition.

Multiplayer is great - if you can find anyone as good as you to play it with!! It's really, really good. It doesn't feel as fast as 2097 but at least it isn't Fusion! Expand

    The analog control is a first for the series and works exceptionaly well. The graphics really push the PSX to the limit and pop-up is not an issue. Great track design and music round out the long list of features that make Wipeout 3 one of the best racers of all time.

  1. Combining well balanced gameplay, excellent track designs and a killer soundtrack, Wipeout 3 is the high water mark for the techno-racer category.
  2. The inclusion of challenge and Deathmatch modes greatly enhance the gameplay, while the two player spilt-screen mode is sheer class. Add to this the hidden four player Split-screen-Link-up mode and.... well, what are you waiting for?
  3. A shotgun blast of colour and speed, Wipeout 3 is not something you'll forget easily. It's the biggest, finest-looking, finest-playing game of an exceptionally good trilogy.
