WIPEOUT OMEGA COLLECTION

Sony



Harder, better, faster, stronger!

Daft Punk may be one of the few EDM types who are missing from the soundtrack of this high-speed collision of three incredibly pointy racing explosions, but that song title of theirs likely sums it up better than we’re going to in the next 250 or so words.

WipEout was a stylish revelation that sold more original PlayStations than many might ever imagine – and that was just to stoners. Its developers may have been given short shrift by Sony, but their legendary anti-gravity space racing game lives on in the hands of others. This collection – as given away by the word “Collection” featuring in the title - grabs the PS3’s HD and HD Fury, adds the Vita’s 2048, amps everything up to 11 and lets it loose on the PS4.

...and it’s yummy!

So, getting down to the nitty-gritty there are a total of 26 circuits, and 46 ships with which to assail them. Some are slow but sturdy, some are quick but delicate, but all of them are pointy-pointy.

Between the 4K enhanced (if you’ve got it) 60fps visuals and the mega-DOOF sonic assault (including the likes of the Chems, the Prodge and the Swedish House Mafia (for whom we don’t have a nickname) plus a bunch more), your senses won’t know what the flying fuck has hit them – and damn it feels good!

Some may bemoan the lack of 3D and custom playlists, but while they’re being whiny bitches we’ll be busy shooming. Locally there are more challenges than you could poke a pointy thing at, while those who can handle the rampant idiocracy of online play are fully catered for. Others may complain that it isn’t a newly-built ground-up experience.

Meh, stuff the lot of you! This is WipEout, this is hyper-challenging racing, and it’s more glorious than it’s ever been.
Do you get our point?


take me back to the start...
