I wouldn't worry. TTP is one of the better Wipeout players I've seen.

IMHO, that Gamespot review is a travesty only matched by their own review of SSDHD.

I tried to do my best. It's not easy to play when the game is lagging due to the capture device/recording process :P

Btw, for size reasons (remember, all vids are 60fps), I didn't grab more than one lap per track in order to keep files around 100MB.

PS3 Fanboy review up: 8.0

Meh. I don't care if the learning curve is steep...it has always been. That should not be a detriment to the score, unless it's truly, maddeningly impossible, which wipEout has never been. The other things they talk about (no custom skins for the ships nor "Elimination" mode) make the reviewer sound more like a baby wanting to cry just for attention than a full-grown man, taking into consideration that the game has a virtually-flawless presentation and goes for $20 fucking bucks.

From the PS3Fanboy review:

What makes the game's AI so hard to deal with (especially at the harder difficulties), is the game's rubberbanding system. Games like Mario Kart are notorious for their over-generous rubberbanding, which makes it easy for someone in last place to make it to the front of the pack (use a Lightning Bolt, a Blue Shell, etc). However, WipEout has the exact opposite phenomenon. Perhaps it's more realistic, but those that are in first place tend to lead the pack more and more. If you're behind by 3 seconds in the first lap, it won't be uncommon to drop to 7 seconds the next, and then 15 seconds the next. Posting continuously improving lap times won't even help.

Doesnt that show there is little if any rubberbanding? In other words, if you are not faster than the #1 driver you will fall behind more and more?

Am I reading it wrong?

He seems to be claiming there is reverse rubberbanding. Despite posting better lap times you will still fall further behind.

Didn't the older Wipeouts have something like when you were further back you'd get more turbo's? I'm pretty sure that Fusion had it at least.

Wow, he's crazy. Just because you posted better lap times does not in any way influence how well the AI is doing ahead of you. If anything, with less competition from the back of the pack (in the form of weapons) it's easy to see why they'd pull away.

...right?

They may be faster laps for him, but were they faster than the guy in 1st? :D Thats all that matters...

No, you aren't. It seems like he thinks that by posting better lap times, he should be leading. However, it seems like the AI gets faster as the race goes on (not unlike a person I guess) which means improvements in lap time does not mean victory. This is not rubberbanding AI. Then again, any AI that stacks up to people's abiltiies is always accused of cheating even when the AI is rubberbanded so it can't get away from you.

I really like PS3fanboy.com's reviews. They tell you exactly what to expect and the scores usually go well with the content of the review. In this case, I know that I'll probably like this game alot since I used to play Podracer alot but I've never played a Wipeout game.

Hey, I'm the guy that wrote the review, and just want to make a few notes. I don't say that Wipeout HD is impossible. It's just for those of you that are already Wipeout fans, this game is something you've already played (I'm in that boat). But, if you've never played a Wipeout, the learning curve is significant. I do believe HD does a much poorer job of easing players into the experience than previous iterations of the franchise.

I don't think removing modes makes me "a baby wanting to cry" -- I think it's strange that the game comes with less modes and less options than the PSP games that it's based off is all. Yes, it's $20 -- and I think 8.0 is a fine score for a game in that price range. I know I'm more inclined to buy lesser scored games at lower prices.

Feel free to PM me with any other questions/comments. Always happy to hear! Thanks guys.
