Wipeout: The Game
WIPEOUT, great show, bad Wii game.
The game looks like it has some real potential. The graphics are HORRIBLE, even for a Wii game. The interface is super glitchey. The voice actors (really the game show hosts) are funny, but the game will momentarily freeze, then two, or more sentences will begin, at the same time, way too late. Reaction time, between you pressing the button, and when your character actually jumps, or ducks, is way too long for the game to be any kind of enjoyable. My 10 year older daughter says this game is "dumb". I think, with more development, ABC's WIPEOUT on the Wii, could be a load of fun, instead of a load of, well, I won't go there. Out of TEN STARS, personally, I'd give it TWO STARS. Very frustrating game. "JUMP" means jump, except in this game, it either means "just stand there", "slowly half jump, then get knocked off the course", or "jump like you belong in the Olympic Long Jump category".
the game is awsome not very good grafics but fun!!
#1 Show Dissapoints
Me and my family got this game this Summer and to be honest, it did not live up to it's full potential. I was expecting this Game to be just like the show, but i was wrong. This game uses 4 Characters (including you or Friends) that go through the normal 4 Rounds. Except No Players ever get eliminated, I could see why they would do this on Multiplayer, so that everyone could play, but on Singleplayer I was Hoping for the real Show. I was Disappointed when i found this out. This game also utilizes a point system which you gain points for each round. This Game also has a Challenge mode where you can complete a obstacle course alone, I found this actually enjoyable since it felt more like this show then the lacking Singleplayer.This Game also lacked some Obstacles from the show, but did too my pleasure include most of everyone's favorites. The bottom Line of this Game is that it was rushed on, but it still is fun for a family. The Singleplayer is a Huge Disappointment, since it is nothing like the show. The Nice Parts of this game is that it is fun for a Group a people gathering around the wii having fun, it also is fun for anyone that enjoyd the show except The occasional Fan will be dissapointed but the difference of this game and the show. The price Drop was needed for this game since i even considered $29:99 too much for this game.
I overall enjoyed Wipeout the game but it's so unrealistic. When you wipeout you move in these odd positions. Wipeout is great for multiplayer game play, after a while the wipeouts get old, as does the commentary. One of the things I would change is it should allow you to customize characters or use Mii's. What I did like is taking the actual obstacles from the show and not just created new easier to create obstacles. The characters in the game are all hilarious stereotypes and I like how you can play as John Henson, John Anderson, and Jill. All of the characters have three somewhat different costumes but they all look pretty similar. In the game you are not able to pick your CPU's, i think you should be able to. Overall it's a fun and entertaining game but if you like realistic wipeouts as opposed to ragdoll wipeouts, this game is not for you.
this game is not for the hardcore gamer
if your a halo adict this game not for you. but if you like just hanging with your friendsthis game for you. this game on four players is great and challenging so many balls flying at you at once.
Great FAMILY Game
I have two boys, 6 and 8. They laugh out loud, everytime they play this. Our entire family enjoys chucking balls at eachother and watching the characters wipeout! The game is the best. However, to play with 4 players, you need 4 remotes. Players cannot share remotes. Also, I wish it had online play so we could challenge our friends from home. All in all, it is a great family game.
When we first got it my 5 year old and 8 year old played for hours. We had a get together and the first choice of a game was this one. The kids played for hours again. I played too, and I am a casual gamer and I was cracking up. This game is funny just like the show.
BEST GAME 4 SUMMER
This game is an AMAZING game 4 kids who watch WIPEOUT or want 2 have fun. Its like being there but youre @ home on youre WII. I reccomend parents 2 try the game 4 therekids and themselfs
Can't wait for the new season to begin next week
I have watched every wipeout episode since the beginning. It is very hillarious and my favorite obsticle is the big red balls. When I heard that they were making a game for it I was so scyced. I saw the 2 hour sneak peek and it was very funny. I wish someday I could be part of the show and get to run the obsticle course and win the $50,000 grand prize. I can't wait for it to return Tuesday next week. It's not hard to believe the season lasts all summer. I like how they add the commentary whenever you wipeout and they even show instant replays.I was the first in line to buy the game when the gamestop in the manassas mall opened. I played the game immedietly after I got home from the gamestop. It is sad that they don't have multiplayer on this game. Good bye for now.
it is awesome
its is cool game to play.it is ilke the t.v show wipeout
