Wipeout 2048 - PS Vita
PS3 Graphics OMG!!!
The very first thing you'll notice is that they used Full Vita graphics wich is qHD 220ppi (full quarter of HD 1080p) wich is amazing. Gameplay is awesome, lots of mayhem. And with optional control like tilt and touch this is a true expirenece. Online is not the best they automatically put you in a lobby. Even in ad-hoc the options are none, you cant pick what track you wanna race or anything they pick it for you. But the new tracks have some new twists to them and are wider this time around so you wont keep crashing into another ship. Overall this Good game, exspcially if your a wipEout fan of the series.
Wow, Great graphics and gamplay!
the gameplay is just right. The AI arent way too hard, etc. There are cool weapons and ships to get. and I never knew what the real graphics looked like (dont judge a game with youtube videos). The graphics are absolutely amazing!!
I got this demo from playstation network on my psp. This is going to be one of the three relase games i plan to get for the ps vita. the others were uncharted and modnation racers and i might get ruin.
Overall fun, but some difficulty issues.
Studio Liverpool brings its super-fast hovercraft racer to the PlayStation Vita, and they didn't leave out a bit of speed in the move from console to portable. This game is as fast and flashy as its predecessors, and it really impresses on the Vita's high-res screen. The shiny crafts and the futuristic backdrops seem to pop right off the screen, and outside the occasional dip in frame rate from heavy action, it moves so smoothly that you'll wonder how the Vita isn't overheating. For emphasis: Wipeout 2048 is a beautiful game.
Also to be emphasized: Wipeout 2048 is horrible sometimes. The game is set in a time slightly before the other series installments in a sort of prequel, so you'd notice some not-so-futuristic backdrop set pieces if you weren't smashing into walls or other racers at a bazillion miles an hour. This is a brutal and unforgiving racer, even with all the optional assists switched on. You'll have to get used to wall collisions early, as they are the norm for this game -- easily the floatiest one yet. Just like in the other Wipeout titles, you'll pilot an anti-gravity craft through some of the most bendy, twisty courses ever devised. While the Vita's tiny buttons and analog stick hold up well, you'll still be hard-pressed to stay on the track and keep up the speed needed to properly finish the race in a ranking position. When you do pull off a win, it feels amazing, and somehow also almost like a fluke. The problem with 2048's racing formula is that it feels like you got lucky when you finally do win. Sure, skill is needed to master the careful braking and cornering needed on these crazy tracks, but the standard battles -- which require both racing and combat -- feel like a free-for-all. In the Wipeout games, victory can only be captured by those that are able to pass over each track's boost points without running into walls or other players. This is already difficult in time attack races, but it becomes maddening when other racers are ramming into you, pushing you away from the boost points. Adding to the sense that luck is needed are the weapon pick-up points, seemingly loaded with power-ups at random. While the best items won't guarantee a victory, matches feel impossible to win when dud pick-ups come up in the random mix.
That all said, the racing action is exciting enough that you probably won't get too hung up on these faults. There's always the possibility of earning more experience points to gain better craft, and you'll earn that through standard play. The game's main mode is a campaign that takes you through multiple seasons of varied race challenges where you're free to pick from branching paths where even losses will net you some experience points. Get through enough of these races and you'll nab a newer vehicle; many of these seem like the key to a barrier, finally pushing you through a race you couldn't master before. There's also an online option for this campaign mode, bringing leaderboards and additional race objectives into the mix. There's plenty of thrilling racing action to be had in Wipeout 2048, with all the flashy looks and blinding speed you'd expect from a console title. Series fans will find a lot to love here, with plenty of new challenges, though those new to the series may find themselves frustrated with touchy controls and unforgiving levels. If you really need to go super-fast at Vita's launch, this one could fit the bill. Otherwise, there are more accessible launch racers out there.
Wipeout is a great game so far. It has great graphics that are much smoother than in the video. The only thing is its hard to get good at controlling the ships. As long as you take the time to play it youll get used to the steering. Fun game.
Eww..... not what i expected
Ok, so u get the game. I admit, everything up to the 2050 chapter is really fun! however the game kicks u in the head when 2050 comes. The ships are way too fast and use autopilot almost all the time (autopilot is an extremely fast way to race) and the tracks get REALLY hard- there are so many turns and twists that ur head will fall off because there is absolutely NO drifting! I tried it and went absolutely CRAZY because if u "drift" it only drifts 1/2 and if u have a missile, waiting to hit the other ship when its near the finishing line and u drift so u dont run into a wall, the missile disappears! and guess what? its REALLY hard to get a missile if u are doing really high-speed track! then they get these new ships which are way better than urs and u race against them which is hard! Dont plan on finishing this game, it is way too hard! Make wipeout go extinct!
Pushing the Vita Graphics
I played Wipeout 2048 on my friends Vita before i got mine and this was one of the games he had and WOW! The very first thing you will notice about Wipeout is the graphics, they truly do impress and show that the Vita has a promising future with further release games. Other than the graphics I have to be honest it feels just like another race game with a different twist but will keep you entertained long enough to get all the trophies you want.
Best game on Vita
I own around 7 gamse and this is the only one so far I keep coming back to. The graphics are amazing and it is very addictive with the challenges. I like the battle gaming aspect so its not straight racing too. The sound track is awesome too, so get some headphones and just disappear into Wipeout. Highly recommend this to anyone with a Vita.
WHY ARE U READING THIS GET THE VITA ALREADY!
AWESOME GAME, GREAT GRAPHICS WITH MOTION CONTROL! AMAZING AMAZING AMAZING! GET THE VITA TODAY!!!!!!!
I got it for the six-axis control and cross-play. both suck. It took extreme amounts of searching and when I found how to I noticed it was posted that day/yesterday. The six-axis is over/under responsive. It doesn't have a constant response. You can tilt it the same amount and it will respond differently. So you keep bashing into walls. I wouldn't mind it so much if they had a free play option, but it only has campaign so it feels like your constantly being beaten like crazy rather than just practice. Then for the cross-play I've only found part of it out. I found out how to verse each other, but not for picking up where you left off.
