When I first thought about what I wanted to say about Wipeout 3 for Wii, I remember thinking that I couldn’t figure out what makes Wipeout so addictive, both as a show and as a game! Then it hit me — of course I know what it is and it is so obvious! I’ve been a huge fan of Wipeout for years because it makes me laugh.
I think it is so fun, in fact, that a year or two ago (time flies so I honestly can’t remember!), when there was an open casting call for Wipeout Canada, I was really tempted to try out! I have good enough self-esteem that I wasn’t worried about looking silly! While I decided against trying out, I was pretty excited (and, so were the girls because they love watching Wipeout too!) to try out Wipeout 3 for Wii.
Described as wetter, wilder and wackier than ever…Jump, dodge, and slide your way through wacky Wipeout obstacle courses. With all new controls, characters, and camera angles, Wipeout 3 takes thrills and spills to all new heights!
The funniest part of the game, I found, was the fact that there are so many different games and obstacles which really tested my ability to maneuver my way around a number of different episodes! I loved the fact that the game incorporates some of my favourite classic obstacles (the biggest laughs I generally get are from the Big Balls, so I was happy to see them incorporated into the game!) but there are also a bunch of courses that I’ve never seen before, like Deck the Balls and Wild West!
I think the graphics are very cool – I love the expressions on the faces of the avatars and the great action moves!
I also liked the fact that we could play in a Multiplayer Side By Side mode so we could challenge each other to play and compare how we were doing! I also thought the “Instant Replay” option is hilarious because we were able to replay some of the crazy and bizarre wipeouts — I was laughing so hard that my sides hurt!
Wipeout 3 is available now for the Nintendo Wii, Xbox 360 and Nintendo 3DS. This game is rated E for Everyone so it allows for great family fun!
