E3 attracted plenty of attention, but there’s also been a fair few games released over the last couple of weeks worth looking at. And one of those was the return of a PlayStation classic, something that the PS4 felt a little naked without: WipEout.
The WipEout Omega Collection is basically a remastering of WipEout 2048, as well as all the content PS3 owners enjoyed in WipEout HD and Fury. Not much has changed structurally: each three games have a series of cups that you work through, one or two races at a time.
The original looks have been maintained from game to game, with the main addition being 4K and HDR support. WipEout was always the kind of game that looked amazing on a TV in a retail store somewhere: it’s fast, sharp, vibrant.
There’s not much else to say beyond that. If you’re a WipEout fan like I am, then the remastered collection gives you the games you remembered with the same level of polish and sheen as when they were first released. The main criticism is that more could have probably been added to the game, like another track for multiplayer or some kind of cross-over between the three games.
Otherwise, it looks great and plays exactly the way it used to. Basically, it’s WipEout.
For those who have picked up the anti-grav racer, how have you found the WipEout Omega Collection?
