    The one major thing I like about Pure that isn't in Pulse is that you can chose a 'custom race' single race or time trial and do all of them one after the other by selecting 'next track' and not reloading the main menu and re-choosing half your options for that race/series of races.

    For me Pulse was a very hollow experience with the worst circuits of the series and mainly dull graphics. Zone mode in Pulse works very well tho. But the normal music is poor, Pures standard music is pretty good.
    Pure has great circuits, and enhanced more buy awesome downloadable content, the extras are superb!
    I also didnt like Pulse handling, like another said too direct and lacked the floaty feeling that Wipeout should have.
    I dont feel Pulse is awful, but it left me feeling cold and disappointed just like Wipeout 3 did.

    you can put your music in pulse=even the music of other wipeout titles!
    In multiplayer matches pulse is really, really balanced and funny..
    I know that i change my mind quite often, but now I really like tracks and track-design.
    The only "bad things" are tips in loading screens (EA style) and the difficulty, which is a bit too easy; but i know it's a good thing for noobs

    I`m definitely in the Pure is better camp. I`m not really disappointed with Pulse and it improves a lot of things that were wrong with Pure, such as weapon balance in multiplayer, and would win in any lists of what the games have to offer. The ships in Pulse are beautiful and the graphical standard is great as ever, and in the end I don`t know why, but Pure just pushes my excitement buttons a lot more. It`s probably the tracks and the handling, and Max`s post sums it up for me.

    Talking about the tips:

    The online multiplayer 'tip' says you can race in single race, tournament or in "exciting eliminator events"

    Eliminator????? What a load of rubbish!!

    Would be nice though, just virtually impossible at 25 kills one on one. It can take me over 25 minutes and 70 laps against the AI on hard, wave goodbye to your battery power if that happened online! I reckon online, one on one, eliminator could take at least 1 hour on phantom, less at the slower speed classes but easily 1 hour at phantom and maybe even rapier.




    For me, one good thing about Pure was vector. Yes I know it is incredibally slow but it was just what I need at 1am after 2 hours of playing already and my reactions are slowing. Venom is alright but still not slow enough when you can't see because your eyes are half closed.

    Hopefully, the next WipEout will see the return of vector, and maybe a sixth speed class?

    I guess they had plans to make eliminator online but ran out of time, removing that loading screen would probably have cost more time which they didn't seem to have.

    I think that when your eyes instinctively close, it's time to put down the PSP and have some sleep.

    So now I just stopped playing it - like a month ago - it's jut not fun. It's no secret that I had a lot of criticism for Pulse, but I really gave it a try and played it very long, competed online, in challenges and wanted to like the game. But there's something about it, maybe what Sausehuhn described, that makes me read its box saying "wipEout", but unfortunately I can't really feel it and decided to stop wasting my time on it. So no Pulse for me anymore.
