The biggest thing about Wipeout 2048 is its incredible speed and handling through each track. Each ship responds almost telepathically to your commands and even slight mistakes can send you flying off the edge of a platform or into oncoming traffic so it really keeps you on your toes during those split second reactions. Weapons also give plenty of assistance but never enough that they’ll cause you to lose control completely if used properly.
