WipEout HD is the high definition comeback for the futuristic racing game that started life on the original PlayStation. Taking to the starting grid in one of many hovering vehicles, you race through hi-tec cities, tunnels and floating structures whilst grabbing whatever offensive power up you can find to knock your opponents off course.

Races against the CPU are both exhilarating and intense, as your metal hovercraft can reach incredible speeds, zoom over speed-up ramps (which make you go even faster) and yet can slow down to a crawl in a moment of error if you happen to crash into the side panels. Expert gravitational steering is required, along with a dash of cunning, to come in pole position.

The techno soundtrack is a staple of the WipEout franchise, and keeps the adrenaline going whilst you're going toe to toe with classic teams such as Feisar and AG Systems. You can replace the CPU with human opponents, either online or in split screen, and race to your hearts content!

The game is available either via PlayStation Network or on a Blu-Ray disc release which features both WipEout HD and its expansion pack, Fury, which adds several new tracks, 13 new ship models and 3 new games modes to the base HD game.
