Unforgiving controls were intimidating but very satisfying once mastered. Silver stream was one of the most incredible racing tracks ever conceived.
Licensed music including FOOL, Chemical Bros. and The Prodigy. Many of the tracks were darker giving a cheap sense of difficulty.
Never managed to finish higher than 5th in any race, and spent the entire time driving the tracks alone because all the other cars were well ahead of me. Not fun at all. Then after many years I picked up Wipe out Pure for the PSP.
Amidst the blue skies, a link from past to future. The sheltering wings of the protector... And right now, I can add one more to that list: When you save your settings, your controller config and default name don't load unless you check them in the options yourself.
So if you load your data and hop right into a race, “fire weapon” is back to being Circled (if you changed it to Square like I always do), and after the race you'll have to spend a long time entering your initials. Back before it was released the Nintendo SNES and the SEGA Genesis were still the two latest and greatest consoles, the idea of Sony deciding to make a console was sort of distasteful to a lot of gamers.
I watched someone play Toshinden and thought “Eh, looks OK I guess.” Then they played the Wipe out demo and my eyes popped out of my skull, it was the most amazing thing I'd ever seen.
Thinking back, Jumping Flash also deserves some credit. I probably would have bought a PlayStation based on Wipe out alone, but Jumping Flash also made a big impression.

With a roster of over 140 cars from real manufacturers from the US, Japan and Europe, it brought racing realism to home consoles for the first time. Each car had its own unique feel, and to progress through the game you were required to pass various licensing tests to prove that your skills were developing and allow you to challenge the next level of opponent.
The sheer speed of the games at the time really made them stand out, and the fantastic electronica soundtrack added so much to the atmosphere. There were various game modes to keep players entertained, including the rarely utilized multiplayer across two consoles using the link cable.
The Championship mode was the real meat on the bones of the title, allowing players to race through 8 rallies stages across various countries and against 5 different opponents. Sony had their own attempt at a Mario Kart style racer during the PS1’s era with the fantastic Crash Team Racing, a game which was recently remade for the PS4.
With up to 4 players able to join the action on the split screen mode, Cash Team Racing was one of the most fun multiplayer games ever to hit the console. There is a total of 8 cars in the game for players to unlock, including high-end models like Ferraris and Lamborghini's.
This mode gradually allows users to unlock the additional cars in the game by finishing the races in winning positions. The versus multiplayer mode was a lot of fun as well, allowing two players to compete across the full range of tracks in the game.
The game features 40 fully customizable cars, from a range of top manufacturers like BMW, Honda and Ford, and has 23 tracks all based on real-life locations. The 4-player split screen mode was a fantastic addition, and a high-profile soundtrack with songs from The Offspring and Moby made for a well-rounded racing experience.
The game features 65 tracks in total, over a wide variety of landscapes, and the destructible environments allowed players to take advantage of their weapons and hamper the progress of their opponents. In a genre which can sometimes be quite stale, Roll cage Stage II offered a unique racing experience and was a ton of fun.
Alongside trying to win the race, players could get rid of opponents by causing targeted damage to their vehicle as they made their way around the track. With straight up races alongside the arena-based Destruction Derby mode, the second entry in the series really perfected the formula and was a lot of fun to play.

Loaded with faster, smoother graphics, more tracks, more crafts, and a range of nasty new weaponry. I would not hesitate to call this the best racing game on the PlayStation.
Amazing graphics, killer soundtrack, profound sense of I would not hesitate to call this the best racing game on the PlayStation. Amazing graphics, killer soundtrack, profound sense of speed, and just a hell of a lot of fun.
I agree with the critics above who say that the unforgiving degree of difficulty in the first game has been leveled, and more user-friendly. Quite simply, the best racing game ever made, IMHO.
The difficulty ramps up quickly, and unlocking everything is a true “pat yourself on the back” accomplishment. Featuring Underworld, Prodigy, Future Sound of London, Chemical Brothers, Fluke, and Photo among others.
This is also the FASTEST racing game that I can ever recall playing. The sense of speed is jaw dropping on the highest difficulty.
It's so fast, that combining the speed with the checkerboard like patterns on some tracks, here's a warning: this WILL make you motion sick if you get motion sick easily. The supreme racing game for the PS1, and my favorite racer of all time.
There is nothing more satisfying than blasting towards a corner at full speed, only to negotiate it The best, purest Wipe out of the series. There is nothing more satisfying than blasting towards a corner at full speed, only to negotiate it with pinpoint skill with masterful use of the air brakes.
