Welcome to Formula 1 of the year 2097. Ready yourself for the worlds fastest racing league. The F5000 anti-gravity racing league. As the name suggests, Wipeout 64 does not have wheels of any kind. Imagine space racing, but on earth if you will.
Set in the dark and distant future, Wipeout’s theme allowed Psygnosis to be creative as a developer. Not bounded by the physics of the 20th Century, W64 has racing elements never seen before in a racer. These elements being tracks and weapons. Wipeout’s anti-gravity techniques allow you race on roller coaster type tracks at roller coaster type speeds. It’s absolutely terrifying.
Wipeout 64 has many options; with a variety of game play modes, increasing the games lifespan. You are given the opportunity to take part in Weapon, Time, or Position based races, making full use of the specifics provided.
Nintendo’s analogue capabilities make for easier control of the craft than with previous PlayStation titles. While not an original title, the 64-bit upgrade is more suitable for both beginners and veterans of the series. Wipeout 64 is clearly intended to meet the needs of every player within the industry. And it does just that.
