Proof that in the future, they still haven't found the cure for male baldness.
That or they just don't approve the treatment to Brazilians...

Out of all the WipEout games I have played, this is the only one that I can't get into. I blame this on the overall rushed feel of the presentation and the oddest yet unnecessary addition in the history of the series - the introduction of cheesy characters who pilot the ships. The graphics are also disappointing and they don't look like a big jump from the PSOne prequels. On one of the tracks, there is an awesome loop-the-loop but for some reason while you are riding it, the track becomes transparent, taking away any sense of awe from the experience. It's strange that there is only one WipEout game released on the PlayStation 2 during the lifespan of the system, even though the game is the definitive Sony experience.

LIBRARY STATUS: 3 out of 5
