I got the game as a PSN wellcome back game, since I heared good things about it and I am a racing fan.

According to the statistics from the game I ran some 287 laps of various circuits, a total of 3+ hours of effective racing (since the laps are quite short), all on campaign mode, all on Novice. I estimate that 80% of that was frustration, 15% meh and 5% fun. There should not be 89% frustration on novice. Even admitting that I am awfull at this game, there should not be this amount of frustration on novice. If I were a game reviewer, I would be tempted to cathegorize this as trash based on 10% of the game, so that I don't have to play it anymore.

How can I enoy this game?


Maybe you'll enjoy it more if you wipe the tears away so you can see the screen better.

I'm just kidding it is really dang hard.  Getting platinum on this makes mirrors edge and demons souls look like hannah montanna.

Oh yeah if you see someone with platinum then it's obvious proof he is hardcore god among us puny mortals :)

I already accepted that Arcade perfect and Beat the Zico are outside my skill range :D

Wipeout is brutal hard and I could see how that would turn off some fans.

But honestly Wipeout HD is one of the best downloadable console games I've ever played. I mean its gorgeous 1080p at 60fps and the crazy weapon based raceing is just awesome!!!!!!!!! Its all about mesmerizing the tracks and learning where to hit boost pads and when to use weapons / or absorb them for more energy. Overall straight up fantastic game IMO.



I had more fun with the game when I turned the speed up actually. On novice, it's hard to get into the game, but when the speed goes up, you start getting more into the flow of things. Or at least I did. Just play some random races at higher speeds and see if that helps you.

Basically this for me.

It's a challenge but that is what makes it so damn awesome. Theres nothing better than busting a rocket in someones ass right as they get to the finish line lol. The game really isn't for everyone though, it's an acquired taste.

Maybe it is because u have pilot assist on like some1 already said. That's no good.
I used the d-pad to plat it instead of the analogue sticks. Have to try it out for urself which suits u better.
Having problems on novice means u r doing something wrong.



Looking forward to: FF Versus XIII / LBP2 / The Last Guardian / Yakuza 4 / ICO Collection

Train? This is not a game for normal novice gamers. But when you get better i promise it all gets much more fun!!!

i didn't find it that hard ? , you probably haven't used the L2 and R2 buttons, i use those quite a lot and add to that you should REMOVE the turning assist option because that slows your ship by 70%



Yeah never liked the series either.

And yes I did come first when I played the demo. Still I think there are much better racers out there.
