Three years from launch and SCE Liverpool's (nee Psygnosis) last outing for the venerable franchise and as a studio, 2048 still remains one of the Vita's finest games. WipEout has always been a technical and aesthetic showcase for PlayStation systems, and 2048 is no different.

Going back to the very beginning of the racing series' lore/universe (yes, it has one), 2048 features level design that's a halfway point between recognizable urban landscapes and the futuristic neon-lit skylines of the previous games. The near-future meets the far-future, this is a relatively new look for the series.

Signature WipEout club aesthetic is slightly updated with electropop and dubstep and while the soundtrack may not be as excellent as previous entries, this is still a very fine sounding game, sure to please dance heads as well as speed junkies.

It's true that coming from HD's 60fps PS3 debut is a step back as the game now renders at 30, but because the game is such a generational leap from the PSP entries, I feel the visual to performance tradeoff is acceptable. Gyro controls are an option as with many Vita launch titles, but thankfully are not required.

The game shipped with some pretty egregious load times but patches have made it far more tolerable now. Coupled with the entire suite of WipEout HD's base and Fury expansion campaigns as DLC made to work within 2048's engine and you've got a very feature packed, content rich package.

It may not be the best WipEout game, but it is a worthy sendoff for both the series and the PS Vita itself.

Excellent game for the PS VITA. The graphics are amazing, excellent sound and music. I enjoyed this game as it was a different kind of racing and I'm trying to catch up with people who have been playing it for some time. For example, my brother holds a lot of the track records. Another feature of this game was that you are able compare tracks records and scores of other players from around the globe. Unfortunately, this game studio is no longer around. I hate seeing game developers shut down.

A phenomenal entry to my personal favourite racing series ever. The only problem I have with this is that I bought a PSTV almost exclusively to play this game, only to discover that they are incompatible. Phenomenal on a Vita though!
