Danger Dan & Wipeout 3 (5)

It’s been 2 years since I ran the gauntlet that is Wipeout and still to this day I am skittish that a padded swinger arm is going to come out of nowhere and fling me off my feet or a well thrown snowball is going hit me square in the face.  Such fond memories, refreshed as if they happened yesterday, as I play Wipeout 3 for the Wii.  That’s right, I have been playing the 3rd installment of Wipeout for Wii in the living room in the same garb I did when I appeared on TV.  And you know what?  I’ve still got it.  Avoiding swinger arms, narrowly missing snowballs, bouncing off the BIG BALLS and sliding into the finish line like an absolute pro.

The game is true to the show.  John Anderson and John Henson commenting all along the way, huge array of courses from Winter Wipeout (which is best ;) ) to Wild West themes, a massive amount of crazy characters (I chose the fit stud cause I think that represents me best), the courses develop just like the show from Qualifier to the Wipeout Zone, and of course, the BIG BALLS.  You have the ability to swim, climb, jump, launch, crouch, balance and of course Wipeout!

Aside from new courses (over 200 obstacles) from previous versions of the game it now has some great new features.  You can laugh at your abilities, or lack there of, with the new 3rd person camera angles; and it now offers Side-by-Side Multi-player gaming.  My son and I played for hours and added our own smack talk and as you can see in the picture I did my fair share of winning, but then again, I had the benefit of first hand experience.
