    Default Pulse really doesn't feel like wipeout to me.....

    I love this game don't get me wrong but for some reason it feels awkward to me. Like its to dark or a something? I guess I go to use to wipeout 2097 & wipeout 3 .So I need some convincing into liking this game more.

    yeah, for me Pulse feels way different. Pure just seemed so streamlined, simple, and perfect. Pulse just doesn't have that feel...

    Pulse is floatier than pure and a way faster, you got infrastructure online mode, pitching nose is also more important than it was for pure.
    You must give it a chance

    Personally, I haven't been this addicted to a Wipeout game since 2097/XL; I feel like I'm back in the good ol' days of AG racing in 2097 in a way and that's great. A console game hasn't been able to keep my attention like this and it's enough to even have me missing out on adventuring in Azeroth (World of Warcraft) and Middle-Earth (Lord of the Rings Online) which is really really odd for me as I'm always playing an MMORPG. (Haven't logged on either at all since I purchased Pulse)

    My hands go numb sometimes during my racing sessions indicating a sign of addiction which is fantastic for me.

    I think it feels just like Wipeout, but it is different.

    However I think it's the best one since 2097. I have to agree with S'Kilov and say that it does make me feel like 2097 did. I'm not saying it FEELS like 2097, but it definitely has the same effect on me.

    OMG,"Pulse really doesn't feel like wipeout for you"?Yes i believe that the older wipeout games had their grace and also the fact that the new isnt always the best,but thing about it:very good graphics,new ship designs etc,and the most important thing PURE ADRENALINE.I think you should take a look at "10 thinks i love about pulse" thread for insparation.You must give wipeout pulse a second chance

    Cool

    I agree with you somewhat, that Pulse doesn't really feel like wipeout - to me it doesn't feel like wipeout until rapier/phantom because that's when the ships start to feel a bit floaty. And listen to Asa, the infrastucture mode breathes serious Wipeout vibe into this game. It feels like wipeout in the end, it just felt to me like it took its time to get there.

    well i'll try to input what i can here, since i took quite a long break from wipeout over the years. I love this game, as others said, i too am addicted, neither me or my friends have put it down since purchase, im not playing any thing else, and have been inspired to sell my wii for a ps3, just for the upcoming wipeout.

    its just a well put together great game just like MOST of the past games, and i get pumped on the way home from work to sit down and get a tourney goin with friends ( if the GF isnt around )

    id say think of it as a whole game in itself rather than the comparison of past WO

    I don't really get this whole "no wipeout is as good as 2097" thing.
    It was a good game, yes. But the things that are being done now in the wipeout franchise I think are much greater.

    but hey, if you don't like Pulse thats cool. I think it's phenomenal.

    After a few months of play I can safely say its making me play Wipeout less. For me Pure got most of it right and I don't like the direction Pulse went in. Pure feels like fun Pulse feels frustrating.

    The first post might mean this in a different sense but I think a lot of tracks are in fact too dark, this is a PSP game and you can't possibly expect me to have access to a dark room at all times when I want to play it. Some tracks are so hard to make out when your on the go, can't help it, I feel they have been implemented poorly in this regard.

    Infrastructure? Yeah cool I love it when my PSP shows the opponent ship as being right in front of of me and so I fire some rockets, which then proceed to go right through the enemy ship and drift off harmlessly down the track, talk about enjoyment! Game has too many bugs.

    Track walls are too low and random re spawns too numerous, anyhoo thats enough ranting about this I'm off to play Fatal Inertia
