Flashout 3 is a wipeout game in every way except the name, Wipeout Lite of you like. An anti-grav racer full of charm, speed, and weapons that is surprisingly accessible yet still maintains its speed and difficulty. I love how the EXP system works whereby doing things will earn the EXP and then that will unlock new ships and tracks. The weapons are set before a race and then they have a cooldown meaning you can always have something to fire! It seems odd though that it has no online interactions at all like leaderboards or multiplayer. The game does support split screen so there are ways to get a session going but it’s less than ideal, even the remote play Co-op thing Steam does would have been good. The tracks are all very neon with a lot of corners and ramps but outside of that, it’s not that groundbreaking. The music is excellent but no real standouts and the controls are tight, I would argue that the airbrakes are ridiculously sensitive but that could just be me. Flashout 3 is a worthy anti-gravity racer and in a world where we may never see another Wipeout game, it’s good to see a game that has picked up the baton and smashed it home.
