    I havent played much Pure. It feels like driving on ice compared to Pulses flying and I didnt like that at all, so I play Pulse instead.

    Pulse > Pure because of that imo. Maybe Pure is better in other areas but that doesnt matter if the control of the ship is bad.

    You want to talk about flying on ice thats what you get when you fly over a Mag-Strip not a fan of those things period.

    Pure was so close to perfection! If only it had handling and air brakes a little more like Pulse that would have been super sweet.

    I feel that pulse is more "competitive" and more improved on beating the opponents in every way possible, while pure is imho based more on driving experience..
    Ships in pulse are easier to handle, nor the challenge level is high enough for expert players.
    On the other hand there's not a good single player mode in pure, all you have to do is collect golds single-race-after-single-race, and that could be boring for someone. (not for me )
    Anyway, they're quite different to make useful to own both, they really feel "wipeout" to me in different ways.

    I think I will force myself to get used to the handling. Many people seem to like the game, I want to see why.

    Skvall, I agree with you that Pulse has better handling...but I find the level designs of Pure to be much better and more fun.

    IMHO pulse's handling suited zone mode better than pure's, however, for racing I prefer pure's

    After playing Pulse, Pure feels very strange, that's true.
    But play it an hour and you get used to it. Actually it feels more WipEout than Pulse does because the ships slide more.
    Dead-stops and roof-grinding are a bit annoying, though. But you can avoid the roof thingie (most of the time) if you know the tracks.
    Overall, Pulse's handling is too direct to me and sideshifting shifts too much and turning turns to much (like if you want to correct your line you directly turn 30).
    Pure's far better at this point to me.

    Then (in my eyes) Pulse never reached Pure's variety of track layouts and environments. The tracks look very similar in Pulse and don't seem that unique. There are exceptions like Vertica and Tech de Ra, but most of the tracks look rather uninspired to me (compared to Pure).

    Pulse is a really good game, but, at least for me, it never lived up to the expectations. There was too much hype probably.

    I just put Pure in my UMD drive again and I'm enjoying it very much (love the menus). If the game just had difficulty levels and online play.

    I love Wipeout Pure. A lot.

    But two huge things Pulse has over Pure:
    1. Online multiplayer
    2. Online leaderboards

    So as much as I love Wipeout Pure, it's hard to motivate myself to go back and really dig deep again.

    Though if members of this community returned to Pure, including Time Trialing and online play via Kai, I would seriously consider it

    Not me. Pulse is for me.

    For me it's all about the way the game feels, or ship control. I have fun in Pure, but Pulse is the one I get serious about.

    Note: This poster finished last in Wipeout Pure at the 2008 European Wipeout Convention.
