    I love pretty much everything about this game, apart from the tail-heavy handling. Change the handling to be more like that in the old PS1 games (better weight distribution, less turn sensitivity without the airbrakes and more with them, more rolling and drifting) and it would be the absolute best racing game ever.

    The graphics are perfect. I can zoom in all the way in Photo mode before seeing any polygon edges.

    Speaking of Photo mode, I can't understand why more games don't have this feature. Really ace stuff there (although it would be better if it saved images as PNGs rather than JPGs).

    The default music is great, and the custom soundtrack feature lets me use any other songs that I want.

    The sound effects are awesome, as are the HUD distortions. Taken together, they work very, very well.

    The weapons work really well, and they finally have the same effects on both player ships and opponents.

    The autopilot actually uses the game's steering model, rather than just sticking your ship on an invisible rail.

    The course designs, although simply recycled from the PSP games, are great. It would be nice to see some original development, though.

    Did I mention the awesome graphics?

    Oh god i cannot stress how much i love the size of this technical masterpiece, whereas shovelwear such as Dark Sector manages to take up a full 24Gb this whole game with the expansion pack only takes up like 2Gb, leaving a lot of room for other game content and leaving one to wonder how they were able to fit 1080p graphics at 60fps where the 2.5 minute trailer for the expansion was already larger than the original game itself.

    My first really indelible gaming experience as a teenager was wipeout2097 on the PC. Next time I experienced wipeout was Pulse on the PSP, and now HD on PS3. Once you learn each new game and find yourself flying at phantom hitting perfect laps, just amazing.

    I've had dreams about wipeout. Sad, but I can't really sum it up better.

    being such a good game you can leave it for 4 months come back and your friends are still playing it..not many games can claim that type of lastability..

    the fact that, while it's not better than the original PSX titles, it's still better than Pure and Pulse.
