As has already been confessed by me, I love Wipeout: The Show. I crack up at the contestants falling and the comments made by hosts John Henson, John Anderson, and Jill Wagner. So it should be no surprise that when I learned that there was a Wipeout game for Nintendo DS I had to have the game. After searching high and low for it, I finally found it at the GameStop by my house. Once I got home, I had to start playing right away.
The TV course consists of 3 rounds the first one you have to have one of the top 4 scores during the five obstacles that are chose. If you are able to do that you move onto the 'sweeper' round, which you have to jump over a bar and be one of the top 2 contestants remaining on your perch. Then comes the wipeout course, which in real life is when the winner is crowned. In this case, you open a new obstacle. All of this sounds hard and maybe a tad boring but it's not.
Once you open the obstacles, they are challenging and at times frustrating. That's part of the joy though, everytime you get frustrated it gets you motivated to try, try again. Maybe thats just me but everytime I was so close to beating one, I had to try again to prove I could beat it. Once an obstacle is beat, you either win a new outfit for a character, a new character or a new obstacle is added to the TV mode.
If you're looking to kill a few hours, or enjoy the TV show then you will get some pleasure out of this game!!!
