WipEout HD AD

I just downright love WipEout HD. Yet, it suffered some serious neglect after other games were released right after its launch last year.

The ratings hover between 7s and 8s, and I have yet to hear anyone slating it completely (cue people pointing me towards an overly negative review). Though there are lots of comments about the game not being perfect (trust me, we feel the same pain there), the alternative combat system is seen as a good thing.
