Whether you want to play this game with mates, or just pump up the jams and solo the campaign at your own pace, Wipeout is beyond fun for both fans of the franchise and newcomers alike. If you pick up one racing game over the next few months make it this one, there will be no regrets I can assure you.

Omega Collection is the definitive version of three games within a genre that, unfortunately, doesn't get a lot of new games. Wipeout is about controlling your ship in unbelievable speeds and, today, there are few games that can give you that thrill for speed which such excellency.

WipEout is a religion, the air brakes are its ministers, and speed is its only temple. Omega Collection is the celebration of its creed, the three chapters of the saga gathered in one, thrilling experience. If you love speed, you can't possibly want to miss it.

Wipeout Omega Collection pulls together some of the series' most recent highlights and uses the power of the PlayStation 4 Pro to keep the franchise on the technological bleeding edge – and it does so in spectacular fashion. This feels like far more than a tentative step towards a fully-fledged new entry, proving that as long as there's PlayStation, there should be Wipeout.

It's brutally old school and will push your hand-eye to the limit, but Wipeout Omega Collection represents style, substance and value for money in equal measure. This is a glorious homecoming of a flagship PlayStation title, an unmissable synaesthetic treat for your ear and eye holes that earns its light-seizure warnings. Your Star Wars prequel memes are mistaken. THIS is pod racing.

The thing that sets Wipeout apart from racing games of today is that it doesn't take itself seriously during a time where some racing games are beginning to do so more regularly. Wipeout is silly, it always has been, but that's the beauty of this gravity-defying joyride. Every time Sony releases their latest console, I eagerly anticipate the release of a new Wipeout game to accompany it. Although this time it's taken a while for this iconic racer to get an update to next gen, WipEout: Omega Collection has been worth the wait.

The WipEout Omega Collection is all the WipEout goodness a fan could want. You've basically got the most modern rendition of a PlayStation classic in UHD and HDR, at a blistering frame rate and with an accompanying booming soundtrack. Yet for those of us who played these three games to death, this collection will serve as a painful reminder that we haven't seen new WipEout material on a home console in a long time. Regardless, given all the content on offer for a sub-$40 asking price, the WipEout Omega Collection is a no-brainer purchase for gamers of all kinds.

The first WipEout title launched back in September of 1995 on the PlayStation One, and with the launches of all the PlayStation Consoles and handhelds over the years a new version of WipEout has made it to every single one of them. There is now a total of 10 WipEout games with some being more memorable than others. WipEout Omega Collection is the culmination of all the previous iterations and we are having an absolute blast with it. if you own a PS4 you need this on your hard drive ASAP.

All told, this is a content-rich collection, one that is especially worth investing in for WipEout newcomers. Longtime players might feel fatigue from tracks that have seen repeated use over the years, but even then, I'd argue the audio and visual polish present in Omega Collection makes it worthwhile -- with or without a 4K-ready setup. The dream of the '90s is alive at PlayStation.

Wipeout persists as a utopian phantom consumed with aesthetic elegance and driven to exhibit a vivid sensation of speed. The nature of this package's identity—Wipeout Omega Collection is three different but very similar experiences—may nudge against a wall of homogeneity, but it's easy to overlook when you're going too fast to focus on anything in the periphery.

Could you argue that not enough of this game is new for fans of the series - especially when Sony has the VR headset now and a speedy racer would be such a great thing for it? Probably. You probably could argue that. But this is still a package of three of the best twitch racers out there, and given that we need to wait for Sony to find a new home for the WipeOut series, this will keep us going just fine in the meantime, you'd think.

Wipeout Omega Collection is a great entry point if you've never played through a game in the franchise before. Wipeout 2048 is the true standout from the collection, with HD and Fury definitely showing a bit of their age. It's sad that nothing new was included in this package, as fans of the series have been eagerly awaiting what's coming next. However, those looking for a true Wipeout experience need look no further. While not as impressive as a brand new title would be using all of today's technology, this is still a great collection to own nonetheless.

Weiterführend muss jedoch gesagt werden, dass sich die kleinen technischen Schwierigkeiten komplett auf den Online-Modus beschränken und das Spiel sonst einwandfrei läuft. Jedoch vermisste ich einen gewissen Charakter während meiner Zeit in den Kampagnen, denn obwohl die Events großteils kurzweiligen Spaß bieten und im Verlauf auch fordern, fehlte mir persönlich die Langzeitmotivation. Zwar erwarte ich bei so einem Spiel nicht unbedingt einen Story-Modus, aber ein wenig Hintergrund hätte auf jeden Fall geholfen. So fühlte sich das ganze etwas zu mechanisch und gefühlslos an. Generell ist die Omega Collection jedoch ein gelungenes Comeback von Wipeout. An dieser Stelle darf auch gehofft werden, dass das Spiel Sonys erwartete Verkaufszahlen erfüllt und wir womöglich in absehbarer Zukunft einen "echten" neuen Ableger der Wipeout-Serie bekommen.

The WipEout Omega Collection is a great bundle of racing games that still hold up quite well today. Returning fans of the franchise will find that the racing is as good as it ever was, but may be disappointed with the lack of extras included. Newcomers who are interested in giving the series a shot will find WipEout to be unlike any other racing game currently on the market, which is oddly refreshing for a collection of old games. All in all, the WipEout Omega Collection does its job as a remaster bundle even if it does feel sparse with bonus content.

If you're a veteran airship racer then you'll have no qualms with this collection. It's decently priced, it looks bloody amazing, and it plays like a dream. If you're a newbie coming in fresh as a daisy, take the time to learn WipEout's intricacies and style before you resign it to the bin. What you're getting is effectively three great games at one great price. They're a little old, and at times their clunky, but it's a decent release no less.

WipEout Omega Collection is an impressive remaster that shines at high speeds, though elements of this compilation are starting to show their age. Despite being boosted all the way up to 4K on the PS4 Pro, some of the tracks are returning for the fourth time, and while WipEout 2048's contemporary layouts look luxurious on the big screen, it can be hard to shake the feeling of familiarity on occasion. That said, if anti-grav is your bag, then there's nothing quite like the original – even with the number of inferior pretenders on the racing scene these days.
