* ScrappyMechanic: The rescue droids from the original to [[VideoGame/WipEout Wip3out]] were loathed for taking precious time when the players accidentally fall off the track. As a result: Since ''Fusion'', you will instantly respawn on the track, despite this time, the rescue droid only appears when [[CriticalExistenceFailure your craft is destroyed]] and save the PlayerCharacter.

*** Fortunately, [[NightmareRetardant the creepiness gets sucked out]] if you watched the ''2097'' review by WebVideo/{{Caddicarus}}, though:
--->'''Caddicarus''': Oh! And the promotional purposes for the original VideoGame/WipEout made the game to be a "[[BlatantLies Class-A Drug]]" by calling it "a dangerous game" and showing two people with bleeding nostrils in a dark room- (Robot voice) '''[[{{Narm}} NIGHTMARES]]'''!!!


Added DiffLines:

** While the PlayStation 2 port of ''Pulse'' may look visually better than the PSP version, but it suffers from a [[GameBreakingBug nasty glitch]] which corrupts your [[LostForever memory card data beyond repair]]. Even turning the autosave off doesn't prevent the said glitch as well! If you really want to play the game, stick to the PSP version instead.

** While it doesn't seem hard to navigate, Sebenco Climb in ''Pure'' and ''HD'' is full of sharp corners in which you'll need a perfect timing while speeding up the mountain until you start plowing into the tunnel, where you'll have to be careful while racing in the chicane section in order to avoid ramming the walls.

* ButThouMust: Downplayed on tracks throughout the series where there is a split, with one route being longer but easier than the other; while there is nothing in theory stopping you using the easy route, in practice on harder difficulties you'll never keep up with the competition, forcing you to take the hard route.

** From the very first game, Silverstream. A tight, very technical track with alternates routes at two points where choosing the wrong path meant you were effectively out of the running. So notorious, it's still considered one of the (if not THE) hardest courses in the series.
** Temtesh Bay Course 2, from ''Fusion''. A veritable checklist of horrible track design decisions. It was so bad that it became part of a major in-universe race disaster when the backstory to ''Pure'' was released. According to the [=YouTube=] user Charlie Emery AKA [=HellfireWZ's=] video "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSNHiCmA7A&t=1019 Wipeout - Circuits from Hell]]", the Medium Course is a [[NintendoHard travesty of a circuit]] filled with tricky corners, rock pillars and those [[PrecisionFStrike fuckin']] [[ScrappyMechanic annoying bulkheads which will NOT OPEN until you are VIRTUALLY ON TOP OF IT]]!! Also, [[FromBadToWorse it's even worse when played in reverse]], making Temtesh Bay Course 2 itself the most difficult course in the entire series, putting Silverstream from the original game to shame.
