Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Remaster of 2 Great Games So WipEout Omega Collection, What a Remaster. i had both Games on Vita and PS3, and loved both of them, compare those 2 with this collection, besides THE GORGEOUS overhaul with the textures, making the text on the ships, the grounds and tracks readable and not blurry. ill do this review into parts Graphics: the Visuals are Stunning, though its only a Racing Game, its one of best looking on the ps4 as of right now. (Others come to mine include Driveclub, made by another First Party Sony Studio that is now closed). every second i just want to pause the game and use the inbuilt Camera Mode just to show off every aspect of the game. on the PS3 version it was blurry textures even though it was 1080p 60Fps as well. On 2048 for the Vita, with its small screen you could still tell how beautiful it was but was drowned out by the Resolution, in the Collection lets you see what everyone was thinking, 2048 on a bigger screen and it holds out. every second you see the texture on the roads/tracks and the logos/text on the ships, some things that you wouldn't have seen on the small screen of the Vita. There is added lens flares, and some bloom and glow from the lights around the track that make it even more beautiful than it was before. everything they have done is a plus in this department. Sound: with the Audio, its different situation from the original 2, the wines of the engines in 2048 that sounded like Star Wars Pod-racers (or Formula 1 cars) are now nearly non existent, the sounds are the exact same with HD/FURY and have No difference even when the years between the 2 are pretty far Apart. the Machine guns & mines Sound more like Pea Shooters than machine guns and the Bombs do not sound like they should, they sound more like the mines than a Sonic/thermal imploder from Star Wars (another Star Wars reference). that said, the sound will grow on me but would have preferred the more futuristic sounds from the originals. Music: The Music is just like other WipEout games but still could be improved, lucky though they include several tracks from the others which hits the spot. there is no custom music unless you use a USB Drive or Spotify, with this unlike WipEout 2048/HD it doesn't interact with the boosts and getting hit by things, but that doesn't matter because i normally turn that feature off anyway. there is 2 options that they have added where you can choose from the 2 types of music they have in the game. Campaign: the campaign i don't need to say anything if you already have played HD and 2048, as both are 1000% the same. Racebox: I'm So glad with this Racebox, not only its 100% identical to HD/FURY, it adds 2048 as well, unlike the original which only had the Campaign and Online which could only let you race pre-made races and events making it impossible to set a track, speed class and AI difficulty of your choice. but one thing i don't like is that you cant choose 2048 ships and use HD/FURY Tracks, which i knew wouldn't happen but would have been great using them on the other tracks than the default. (this goes for online as well. and i don't mean using 2048 ships against HD/Fury ships because that requires balancing and they said they didn't want to change the gameplay) Online: with Online the last game type, its also identical to HD/FURY which is a good thing, but you can now choose which game you want to create, be it 2048 or HD/FURY, each option lets you choose from the game modes from that game, and choose the ships from it as well, so you don't need to switch to a different game, if you are host you can switch in the settings for that lobby. this is also disappointing that Multiplayer doesn't have challenges like 2048 did, but also relieving that you don't need to choose a map and game mode from 2 randomly generated options. Ships: the ships in this are the same ones you have in HD/FURY and 2048, but they add extra liveries for 2048 and add 2 extra companies for HD/FURY (Tigron & Van Uber which are only available in HD/FURY), the detail on these ships are amazing, you can now zoom in as close as you want and you will see no pixels or blurry textures. when picking a ship you can turn the ship upside down etc to just admire them. Tracks: the tracks have been remaster perfectly, they look so good, and they play the same just like normal. the floors are pixel free and you will just drop your jaw in aw looking at the scenery. MISC: the controls are exactly the same but even better on a PS4 controller. photo mode is great and you just need to open the share menu to save instead of hiding the UI making it quicker than ever. Pros: great tracks great ships great campaign, racebox & online amazing replaybility stunning visuals spot on controls easy to learn Photo mode is useful Mix: music is great but could be better Sounds have change not for the good or worst Cons: cant mix tracks and ships no Objectives in MP
