    For 30$ this makes a nice futuristic racer while we wait for WipeOutHD. Lots of annoying things, still entertaining.

    Every first hour PS1 owner remembers WipeOut... Maybe not everyone bought it, but the demo cd coming with the PS1 at launch made sure you could at least try it. Rendered at 60 fps, featuring streamlined art by Designe... Read Full Review

    Somehow a game with so many problem can be so fun.

    The game is fun. That's about it for the redeeming factors. Though, the sense of speed you get playing this game is undeniable, and that is without using any speed boosts, once you use those it just goes beyond it. ... Read Full Review

    A very difficult Wipeout-esque racer

    Having played video games since I was very young, I have played a lot of them. However Fatal Inertia has got to be one of the most difficult I have ever played. Lets start positively though. The game's visuals are fan... Read Full Review

    Decent game with extreme potential but doesn't live up to the standard of next-gen consoles.

    Fatal Inertia is a futuristic combat racer where you and a few friends can go at each others throats either online or on the same console. It has plenty of potential but a small budget is likely the culprit behind this g... Read Full Review

    WipeOut Love/Haters: You will Love/Hate this.
