    Itâ??s a great launch title, but generally speaking a mediocre game. I just couldnâ??t get over the terrible third-person view, which forces players to deal with clunky and wholly frustrating gameplay due to poor design.
  2. Reaching the end of Wipeout Pure is certainly a challenge, but once the higher ground has been breached (without PSP owning friends) there is little reason to return to the game.

I bought my PSP for this game (and bought 3 more copies for my friends so we could play it in ad-hoc multiplayer). Great fun - good for smack talk. Still play it. In my mind, it's far superior to its successor Pulse. I have no idea how to finish this game, it's so tough in the faster classes, but I've had a great time trying. This game and Lumines were a promising start for the system. Full Review »

You'll love the sheer difficulty, the amount of content there is available, the unique style gameplay and design and of course the music which matches quite nicely with the overall design of the Wipeout Pure experience.

Controls are smooth, tracks are sufficiently bendy and the soundtrack perfectly suits the action. A larger choice of vehicles and tracks would have made this game even better. Full Review »
