    Ran across this last night and it sure brings back some memories seeing a flythrough of all the classic tracks.

    I loved wipeout. Won a PS One in a nightclub once by playing a Wipeout comp.

    I got more than i bargained for that night.

    Looks like I will be comparing this to Wip3out on the Saturn tonight. Almost identical to the PS1 version except the weapons a sprites and not polygons. Plus the soundtrack is missing a few songs.

    PS had proper shadows and a better framerate as well from memory.

    Shadows yes, but I have read the frame rate on the Saturn was a little faster.

    ah ok, my experience only stretches to the Saturn - maybe I heard wrong.

    Visually it looks nicer on the PS1.
