Wipeout 2 

 

We recently found a cache of Activision games designed for families in a bargain bin at a local retailer. The prices were really good. I wish the PR for Activision would have figured out that they should send information on these games to Family Friendly Gaming. They could have done better with their sales if they had. But their mistake is to our advantage. It is also to your advantage since prices for these games are so much lower.

Wipeout 2 on the Nintendo 3DS is one of those games we found. I remember how dismal the Nintendo DS version of Wipeout was. I was hesitant about playing Wipeout 2 on the Nintendo 3DS. Thankfully I played it, and saw Activision and Behaviour Interactive made improvements. The biggest improvement is the graphics and character models. Characters look like real live people.

I ran across some strange glitches in Wipeout 2. On the four characters jumping over the swinging arm game, it never stops until you get hit. I would be the last player and I should have won. Not in Wipeout 2 on the 3DS. It forced me to take a hit, and then glorified the hit in a replay. The second glitch was those bouncy red balls. Players can go all kinds of different directions from them.

The announcers have sound bytes in Wipeout 2 on the Nintendo 3DS. They are rude, and offensive at times. Other times they can be funny. The music in Wipeout 2 is catchy. I think it comes from the show. I have not seen much of the show to recall for certain. Players can get knocked around from a variety of objects in Wipeout 2. Timing and luck are important.

There is one training, and ten episodes in Wipeout 2 on the Nintendo 3DS. The only thing that stops Wipeout 2 from being short is the insane difficulty. Players have to beat one episode to unlock the next one. I replayed certain episodes over and over again until I finally beat the three levels in that episode. Players can get trophies that are actually meaningless for winning or losing.

I had spurts of fun playing Wipeout 2. The controls are okay. At times it was hard to tell where objects were. I am not big on mocking people for getting knocked off platforms thanks to rather cheap traps. I enjoyed collecting rings and unlocking additional characters. Even when the rings were in really tough to reach locations. If you are a fan of the television show then you may get into Wipeout 2. Warning this game is hard.
