    It's the first game ever to make me try to improve my race times.

    I love the design, music, adrenaline...pretty much everything.

    Amazing graphics and the piloting experiment is incredible, not like the other racing games IMO. Something far more intense

    Well, the cool thing is; the game doesn't get boring for me. Not even remotely.

    Agree, for example I got Dirt 2 but I am already a bit tired of it. But after 16.000+ laps of wipeout I feel I have just begun And the wipeout controls give me a great feeling of mastering something hard.

    It feels like my entire music library was waiting for this game. I love the sensation when the music fits the track, or seems to come out of the air on Sol 2 with my more ambient tracks, and the sense of foreboding while doing a time trial from some of my moodier music while heading down the Ubermall straight and deciding whether to turn left or right and can I nail the boost barrel roll? It's just so beautiful.

    When I close my eyes sometimes, I see the red box with green letters "You eliminated _______" and I'm serene.

    In photo mode, all the explosions and special effects remain still. In photo modes of other games this isn't always the case. For example, Final Fantasy XII, you pause the game and move the camera around, everything looks cool but all the magic effects are gone. Something about graphics horsepower. It's good they didn't try any cheap way out.

    The rocket smoke trails. They look glorious.

    The return of a proper quake animation, actually lifting up the track like it was a rug. My favorite part of Wipeout.

    British accents. I know some find the woman's voice annoying, and I don't think it's as good as 2097, but I still like it when she says "Mirage."

    The international makeup of the players. I rarely see players from my own country, the US, dominate the listing. Usually there are as many British players, with a few from dozens of other countries. Tonight I played a Phantom Eliminator race with players from the UK, Sweden, Norway, Germany, and Ireland. It was time for dinner, but I thought, "after I finish eliminating the whole of Northern Europe."

    id have to say its the insane lines BRs and shortcuts that are possible, its like no other game. im not really a fan of racing games id play them but they didnt do it for me but wipeout hd is different, it has so much more to it than the other games. my fingers are going like crazy when im tryna do a good lap whereas other games you only have to corner better to improve your times and this to me gets old, fast.

    big thank you to studio LIVERPOOL

    BTW if Zico Liu is reading this i only live down the road so you must live close, how about some split screen races sometime im sure BARNSTER would be up for it

    Zone mode, trophies, online with a very nice people, the beauty crafts as always, and when i have a FullHD TV in the future, 1080p and 60 fps, and something that i really love not only from hd, but from all the saga: Fictional sponsors with his logos, making that the racing leagues really have a cost, and for that, there are sponsors, and it makes a little expansion for the WipEout universe.

    I like Single Race, Tournament, and Eliminator. Eliminator is fun but I think it would be better if the stages are more arena-like instead narrow straight roads.
