*** 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]]'''!!!


* 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. Silverstream is a notorious offender.


* DarthWiki/MostAnnoyingSound: "[[CollisionDamage Donk]]!"
** Dear god, the announcer also counts as this in a nutshell as the latter WON'T SHUT UP until you finish the race!
*** "[[CriticalAnnoyance WARNING]]!"/"MISSILE!"/"[[CriticalAnnoyance ENERGY CRITICAL]]!"/"[[OhCrap QUAKE]]!"/"[[GameOver PLAYER ELIMINATED]]!"
*** Taken UpToEleven in ''Fusion'' (and ''Pulse''). If your shield energy is lower than 5%, the craft will start beeping until you reach the pit-stop or [[CriticalExistenceFailure else]]...

* EvenBetterSequel: ''2097'' introduced a load of innovative concepts that were so highly praised by critics that they still remain in the series' modern iterations, namely the ability for ships to be destroyed, a few game-enhancing weapons and pick-ups, such as the auto-pilot, the plasma bolt and the quake disruptor, and of course, Phantom class.

It also made touching walls more forgiving than the original, which would bring the player to a dead stop every time.



* {{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.

* AwesomeArt: One of the reasons why the series is much loved is the [[RuleOfCool cool stylized art]] and solid visual design. The first three games [[DesignStudentsOrgasm stand out in this department]], courtesy of The Designers Republic. Their return as artists in ''VideoGame/FormulaFusion'' is the reason why many a Wipeout fan got extremely hyped for its release.

** Pilot Assist: "[[ScrappyMechanic DON'T USE IT!1!!]]"[[note]]Another one from [=HellfireWZ=], in regards to an optional MercyMode the player can enable in the game, during his [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IxzYkTralIA Wipeout HD Fury tutorial video]].

* NightmareFuel: The series doesn't have a lot of creepy content, but the song [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pC8CLyuCt_0 "Zulu"]] by Hybrid in WipEout Pure is pretty unsettling, this is [[SubvertedTrope subverted]] if you're trying to feel like a badass. Also, it got sampled in VideoGame/MetalGearSolid4GunsOfThePatriots.

* 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, complete with the Steam Workshop and a custom music player (which it means you can play your favorite VideoGame/WipEout soundtrack while playing).

** [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XnhqqnRLtxM Fusion's intro is even more of a doozy.]] Not only it features [[SensoryAbuse sudden flashing lights]] that would cause a JumpScare, but it also has a sample of a [[CreepyChild child laughing]] in both the beginning and the end of the opening. And it gets worse from there: the fall of F9000 not only led to the massive global recession, but also there were [[CrapsackWorld riots]] and [[WarIsHell war all over the globe]]. It only took many decades to stabilize, and many more to recover from before the events of ''WipEout Pure''.

* BrokenBase: The fandom doesn't talk about it much given the direction this series has taken, but there's a divide between those who prefer slower, more difficult handling of 3 first installments and those who prefer more fluid and faster pace of ''HD'' onward. Then there's ''Fusion''...
