So, you pay your money and you make your choice. Is Wipeout HD worth £11.99 and about an hour of download time? That depends.
If you've been a stalwart follower of the Wipeout franchise, there's nothing here that you haven't seen before. Granted, it looks fantastic, but the tracks and vehicles have appeared in previous games. You have to balance that against the sheer jaw-dropping visuals, and decide whether you want to fork out for more of the same.
