    Lawdy lawdy! Can't wait to play this. F the people with the nice clean Wipeout preview case and disc. I would pay $60 to buy the disc with that packaging, even though the game is only $20 online.

    Yeah, but I think 'replay' has become a general word for 'watching AI ships noodling around the track before or after a race'. We certainly use the term 'replay cameras' in the studio - meaning the fixed and dynamic viewpoints around the track - despite there being no actual recorded replays.

    He's certainly wrong in one respect though - you can enter Photo Mode anytime. You don't have to wait for a race to finish.

    Btw: do the cradts fire weapons after the race has finished? They don't in WOPulse and it's really more logical (why would they damage each other when the race is over?) but with photomode it's nicer to have some nice explosions going on.

    Why would they damage each other after the race? Well because maybe someone is a bad looser and feels like blasting the winner? I would certainly be tempted......lol

    The review posted saddens me. Not because Wipeout HD is undoubtably an amazing game, but becasue its coming out on the one console i cant afford to pay for...i want this game so much =[

    Great review guys well done, am really excited for this now!

    Rock on!

    BTW Reviewers never seem to pick up on certain points do they?

    Which is exactly what confused me about photo mode in Pulse. When I'm racing, I'm jockeying for position, not looking for a photo op. Once the race is over I might be calm enough to recognize a picture perfect moment in a Ridge Racer/Race Driver: Grid style recorded replay of the race but Pulse doesn't have one. So to me photo mode felt like wasted effort in the absence a race replay. (not that it exactly detracted from the enjoyment of the game - it just struck me as a curious decision).

    So it seems that the reviewer had the expectation of watching a replay after conclusion of the race based on the various precedents in other racing games, not realizing that in fact the ships were merely cruising about the track.
