Maybe it's just watching bad people playing (and the guy in this video doesn't seem to understand the mechanics) but I while it looks fast, it still feels like something's not quite right with the controls. If you have a game with a great sense of speed, you definitely need to have the controls match up to it to let you control that speed.
If there's one thing that Wipeout has taught me is that I don't really enjoy these kinds of games without the hilarious F-Zero characters, colorful art, and insane music that are hallmarks of the F-Zero series.
Does that make me superficial? If so guilty as charged!
I loved it, and it remains as one of my favorite Wii games (WiiWare or retail!) ever. While it does lack that "fun/wacky/cool" vibe of F-Zero, the course design, music, controls and CHALLENGE were all spot-on, IMO. The game just kept getting better and better the more I unlocked. Can't wait for this new game. Shin'en does good work.
