    Sideshift in my absolutely honest opinion is a real hard ability to make in the right time and i think is anyways there the luck factor. You can't see the missile (yeah i know, you can see with L1 a backwards camera, but i personally can't concentrate in the race if i start looking backwards) and obviously right-timing this dodge without where the weapon is, is a real pain.
    Not to mention if you crash trying dodging it (yeah, it happened to me... i tried to avoid a missile and... terminated with a wall crash and a missile hit), you have to be in an appropriate side of the track.

    I'm not really saying that weapons should be off the WipEout saga, but, precisely in that WipEout (my favorite, and one of my favorite games of all history), weapons did a real dynamic race, where, if you get hit by a missile, you lose positions, time... but you still have the chance to win, in HD are (imho) really overpowered. The difficulty in 1995's WO was not given by the weapons themselves. And even it wasn't an energy shield, so the motive was completely to slow the opponents for making easier for me to win.

    So, of course there should be weapons, but with moderation and the right level of power.

    I like the weapons. My only gripe is that I cannot customize my ship more.

    What drew me to WipEout HD is the fact it reminded me so much of a game I used to love years ago called "Rock n' Roll Racing". So I like the weapons.

    I should say though, that WipEout HD is my first WipEout game so I have no idea if the others have weapons or not. I got it with Sony's Welcome Back package and have been enjoying it. Only got into the online portion of the game just last week.
