Wipeout 2048 

 

After the stellar launch of the PS Vita there was a drought. So I went scouring the industry trying to find something worth purchasing. Long time readers know I am frugal when it comes to purchasing video games. I would rather pay twenty dollars for a game so I can get two and a half games for the fifty dollars most gamers spend to get a game on launch day.

I have never been overly fond of the Wipeout series. I understand the futuristic racer concept. And I get that it is similar to the F-Zero franchise. Another series of games I am not very fond of either.

Expect some amazing twists and turns in Wipeout 2048. There can be a lot going on visually in the different levels. We are going so fast that it is nearly impossible to enjoy it though. We can use a variety of weapons in Wipeout 2048 to trash our fellow racers. We need to collect them on the tracks like the speed up boosts.

The music is alive in Wipeout 2048. I enjoyed the techno thumping sounds as I struggled to make it through the races. The realistic explosive weapons were more of a distraction in my book. Plus they were mildly helpful. The voice that makes announcements in Wipeout 2048 is not that great in my opinion.

The controls in Wipeout 2048 are horrible. Which is one of the main reasons I struggled in Wipeout 2048. The key to victory is hitting all the speed boosts. Failure to do so means you will lose races. Which is pretty lame in my opinion. The only skill is going from speed boost to speed boost. Nothing about maneuvering, find the right line, etc. I found myself using weapons trying to catch up. But that was not always successful.

Wipeout 2048 uses most of the features of the PS Vita. I found some of them to be useful, and others felt tacked on. Social gamers will appreciate the ability to race up to eight players (total) over the Wi-Fi. This can be other PS Vita gamers or PS3 players. Which is a neat little feature. Especially if you are one of those competitive gamers.

I did not find Wipeout 2048 to be a fun experience. It irritated, annoyed, and frustrated me at every turn. The computer is majorly over powered. The violent content is more realistic than say a Mario Kart. I hope to avoid the Wipeout franchise for some years to come. Wipeout 2048 is a game I did not like.
