Wipeout (video game series)
- Wipeout (video game series)
"Wipeout" is the title of a series of futuristic anti-gravity racing games, originally produced by Psygnosis for the PlayStation video game console, with other versions of the game produced for the Sega Saturn, DOS, Amiga, Nintendo 64, PlayStation 2, PlayStation Portable and Playstation3 formats. When Sony Computer Entertainment Europe acquired Psygnosis, they also acquired the rights to "Wipeout".
The gameplay differs from that of a traditional racing game with cars; the player instead controls vehicles which hover over the ground. In addition to this, the player can pick up weapons to fire at enemies, as well as defensive items. Examples of similar games are the popular "F-Zero" series and "Hi-Octane" .
As well as offering a fast and intense racing experience with high-quality 3D graphics, the "Wipeout" series also features popular electronic music from the time of release and modern design.
