    Why have you aged so poorly?!

    Yeah. I picked this up for my Saturn and popped it in and started my first race.. only to be completely disappointed. It has aged horribly, from the muddy polygonal nightmare of a vehicle that you are forced to look at... Read Full Review

    Wipeout remains one of the few sci-fi racing games left. The original left its mark on gamers everywhere.

    For me the introduction to Wipeout began in 1995 with the release of a cyberpunk movie called Hackers. A character within the movie went to an arcade and began playing a racing game with hovercraft and great futuristic ... Read Full Review
