When I was told that I’d be previewing Wipeout In The Zone for Kinect, I thought for sure that Destructoid was trying to torture me through some sort of new-editor-hazing-process. For one, I’m a writer, not an athlete, and anything that involves sweating off my makeup in public just isn’t something that I find appealing. For another, a slogan like “I survived the Big Balls” warrants one dramatic facepalm and sounds like something that might possibly follow me around for life.
Wipeout In The Zone (Xbox 360)
If you’re not familiar with the title, Wipeout In The Zone is based on ABC’s hit show Wipeout which, similar to Ninja Warrior, throws people into an extreme obstacle course and challenges them to complete it in order to win a fairly sizeable stack of cash.
According to Hohl, one difference between the videogame and the actual show is that you can now hurt these videogame characters in ways that you obviously can’t in real life (without actually killing anyone, anyway). Hohl continued, “The obstacles in the show are already crazy. But the developers were able to make them even crazier in the Kinect version.”
