I really don’t get the appeal of the show Wipe Out, but I am in the minority in this house. My husband and kids think it’s great, so I knew they would love the game too. I wouldn’t say that any of them are particularly good at the game, much like the contestants on television, but they really enjoy it. You can tell by listening to the laughter of my 7 year old daughter and 8 year old son while they are playing in this video (sorry for the shaky video).
The game offers lots of great graphics and fun obstacles for the players to get through. I think my kids mostly enjoy watching their avatars crash into things and fall to the ground, but a game where they don’t mind losing is a good game in my opinion, since there is usually someone crying when they lose games.
