Now I’ve been lucky to actually get a chance to play the new PSVita and Wipeout 2048 is a fun new title. Now it’s hard to add new life to a racing title but this title does it with flying colors. Wipeout 2048 is a futuristic racing title but is a prequel to other Wipeout titles. It has a very F-Zero feel with a mix of other titles like Blur or Mario Kart.
For those who haven’t played these titles Wipeout is an anti-gravity racing title like F-Zero or Star Wars Episode 1 Racer. However, you can pick up items like rockets, plasma weapons and sheilds. However, unlike titles like Blur this game actually manages to mix both styles and make an overall great title. This high speed action title boasts great handling and very solid gameplay.
Another great aspect of this game is the overall stunning look and feel. The city environments are ver top notch and add a very beautiful look to the game. The upper levels reflect more of a futuristic look and feel to the city while the lower levels show off the interior design to the city and really shows a good distinction between the different “areas” of the game.
Now I don’t normally get to thrilled when it comes to most racing title unless you’re talking about Need for Speed or a new F-Zero or Diddy Kong Racing rumor. However, this game is an exciting new title that adds some interesting flavor to the racing game genre.
