    Well, it's a good thing those esses weren't zees.

    They actually are more like "zeds" as Jeremy Clarkson would put it. Just an absolutely vile feature to what is otherwise a nice looking track.

    Anyone else's gripes?

    wip3out was kinda great, maybe my favourite game of the series.
    it is the triumph of design, colours hud and everything else created a parallel futuristic world that it was fantastic to be in.
    ships were great too, icaras and assegai, two of the most popular teams, were introduced here!

    Agreed.

    While I do think that the bounciness could be annoying, and Autopilot doesn't help with that timing turns better and using the Square button fix those problems - same with Reflector. So, they're minor...

    As for the font...I like its futuristic feel. Believe me, back in '99 I had some trouble reading it as well...but you get used to it. I know by now I am!

    Getting used to those things adds to the challenge, which IMO makes it more fun. As long as I've been playing it, I don't have ALL the medals - heck, I barely even know the prototype tracks. So, what some say is tedious I think adds to its replay value.

    The first Wipeout i played was 2097, so it makes it hard to find a new "king of wipeout" in my opinion.

    But one thing that really got to me in Wip3out was the ion trails. I mean C'mon, they just look like a stereotypical rocket trail, with a point at the end.
    A few more minor rants might include the sound of the ships are like electric cars, and the cartoonish way your ship is destroyed.

    but other than that, its practically perfect.

    I love the quiet ships; they made it feel like the future to me.

    Oh come on Lance, you can't tell me you don't like the roar of a engine now and then? Besides at the speed them AG crafts are flying, I expect to be hearing some ROARING sounds

    At least they're making noise in Wipeout 3, WipEout original has no engine noise at all save for using a turbo!

    about the only thing I REALLY can't stand in WO3 is the little speed boost you get when another ship rear-ends you. Sure it can help but say you accidentally smack a wall around a turn... you're in the middle of correcting yourself and getting back into your line when someone rear-ends you back into the wall. I've had times where this has happened 3-4 times IN SUCCESSION, like wall, straighten, rear-end, wall, straighten, rear-end, wall, straighten, rear-THROW THE CONTROLLER ACROSS THE ROOM

    Isn't there a "BLAM" missing for the gunshot wound the pilot inflicts upon himself?
