WipEout was one of the first games released for the original PlayStation back in 1995. A great game if you're looking for a bit of a retro recap. Set in 2052 AD, anti-gravity racing has become the world's biggest sport. The F3600 Race League is this year's hottest event featuring the wildest most dangerous track from across the globe.
Once you've picked you team one of the most ballistic racing experiences ever begins!
Psygnosis (the creators of other notable PS1 classics like Lemmings and Destruction Derby) and development partner 'The Designers Republic' have produced a fantastic style for the game. While graphically not very impressive from a technically point of view as it was still extremely early in its life, but artistically its one of the best. From the pilot logos to the holographic billboards every facet of the game has been carefully designed to fit into a coherent style. Back then it was rare to find titles that did this so well. The tracks designs have chequered sections and guide arrows that create some amazing effects when you pick up some speed. There are 8 different ship designs that have become very iconic for the series.
Sound and music all play a huge role in establishing wipEout as the futuristic racer of choice for many. The effects for ship are little more than low hums, but they get the message across. Crashes, bumps and explosions also sound pretty good with welcome thuds and scrapes. The music is another defining feature of the game with electro and techno beats from the likes of CoLD SToRAGE, the Chemical Brothers and Orbital.
