** 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.

** The bulkheads from ''Fusion''. [[MemeticMutation Those BLOODY bulkheads]]! (See ThatOneLevel)



* {{Sequelitis}}: While it may be [[SoOkayItsAverage a little bit well recieved]] ''Wipeout Fusion'' was criticized for being [[VideoGame/StarWarsEpisodeIRacer Pod Racer-ish]], having different graphics compared to ''Wip3out'' and [[TheyChangedItNowItSucks the gameplay was vastly different]]. Don't forget the track design, which was pretty atrocious enough to be remembered by critics and fans alike (See ThatOneLevel).

Added DiffLines:

** [[TheIdealist Auricom]] also count as this during the F9000 League (''Fusion''), as they're mocked by [[AxCrazy Xios]] and were the remaining team to defend Belmondo's philosophy right after AG-System's downfall.

** [[LandDownUnder Temtesh Bay]] Course 2, from ''Fusion'', is 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 [=YouTube=] user and series veteran Charlie Emery AKA [=HellfireWZ's=] video "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fNSNHiCmA7A&t=1019 Wipeout - Circuits from Hell]]", Course 2 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.
--->'''Charlie "[=HellfireWZ=]" Emery (reacting to Temtesh Bay 2)''': Oh my god, [[ThisIsGonnaSuck this course is HORRIBLE]]!!!

* FanSequel: Due to the game carving its own unique niche in the racing genre, some fans have taken it upon themselves to make games like wipEout when a game hasn't been released recently. The most prominent of these fan games is [=SlipStream GX=], which is supposed to tell the story of what happened between ''Fusion'' and ''Pure'' with the SerialNumbersFiledOff. Also, we have VideoGame/BallisticNG, which is mostly inspired by the older WipEout games and it's available for free on Steam, complete with the Steam Workshop and a custom music player (which it means you can play your favorite VideoGame/WipEout soundtrack while playing).

* 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]]'''!!!

** Well, [[SarcasmMode this is an odd one]]. [[https://farm9.staticflickr.com/8427/7840533268_91ced29186_b.jpg The promotion art for the very first game]] is [[ParanoiaFuel downright unsettling]].

It's just like if the developers of the game kidnapped them and tortured the poor kids as an attempt to force them to promote the game. Also, the other version of the art refers the game itself as "[[BloodSport a dangerous game]]". Thankfully, the unsettling art is staged, but still...

** 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.
