If you like contestants trying to survive an obstacle course laden in the most comical way possible, have we got a treat for you. Activision has shipped Wipeout: The Game for Nintendo Wii and Nintendo DS, just in time for the third season premiere, which kicks off tonight on ABC.
“When developing the game our goal was to capture all the elements that people love about the hilarious reality ABC show, and to above all make it fun,” said David Oxford, Activision Publishing. “So far, we’ve been overwhelmed by the response from fans, who clearly can’t wait to step up to the challenge of the obstacle course.”
Wipeout: The Game is loaded with the elements that have made the TV show a smash hit. From the contestant demolishing Dreadmill to the fan-favorite Big Balls, all of Wipeout’s classic obstacles make an appearance in the game. Furthering the complete Wipeout experience that fans have become accustomed to is the inclusion of witty commentary provided by the show’s hosts John Anderson, John Henson and co-host Jill Wagner.
In Wipeout: The Game, up to four players can battle against each other in the game’s many challenges. As they compete for the ultimate win, players will get down and dirty with their opponents as they hurl objects and insults with the game’s signature Trash Talk Generator.
We can’t wait to give it a try. You can pick it up in stores now, or wait for our review. Meanwhile, we got TV to watch. First Wipeout, then Futurama!
