''Wipeout'' (sometimes styled ''[=wipEout=]'' or ''wipE'out"'') is a series of futuristic racing games developed by SCE Studio Liverpool (formerly Psygnosis), widely regarded as the UsefulNotes/PlayStation's answer to Nintendo's ''VideoGame/FZero'' series[[note]]despite it being created in 1995, during ''F-Zero''[='=]s "downtime" - the Nintendo game wouldn't be turned into a series for another three years[[/note]]. Players race anti-gravity craft at speeds of several hundred kilometers per hour (several ''[[SuperSpeed thousand]]'' in some games), while exchanging weapons fire and attempting to avoid potential elimination (an element introduced in the second game). Visuals, atmosphere and music are three of the hallmarks of the ''Wipeout'' series; the first three games were made in cooperation with well-known Sheffield design agency [[http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Designers_Republic The Designers Republic/tDR]], and the game's soundtracks consisted of an extensive collection of songs from underground ElectronicMusic acts, many of who would become rather successful in the games aftermath.

* CosmeticallyAdvancedPrequel: Despite being a prequel to the very first game, ''2048'' looks (and plays!) more like a somewhat grittier version of ''HD'' than the first game.
