This was my first "modern" racing game after I upgraded my computer, and I LOVED it, cars were really fast, effects are nice and music is great! You find out how wild and crazy the game is after you drive into a building and find yourself inside it as fast as a rocket, with a slow-mo effect when you get out! The effect they used for the text is kinda nice, it's on the walls which I liked at first, but it was harder to read and made me hate it after some good hours of game, I want to read it but at the same time I want to look at the road and not on a wall.. Overall a great game, I enjoyed it back when I got it, and it's still holding up very good !
Ridge Racer Unbounded as title says is a arcade racing game heavily inspired by the Burnout series, still fun till this day, however it's not for everyone as it's very casual title. Races are hard and demanding. Sad part is that multiplayer is no more as Namco decided to shut down the servers. If you like to play offline it's very good game.
After playing through Split/Second the thousandth time i really wanted to find a game like that: a car racing game that's fun for those who don't like cars...or racing...or Techno music. Well, This game has 2 out of 3, so i guess close enough. While it lacks the power ups, and explosions of Split/Second, the races themselves are challenging, and the stages are fun to, with lots of hidden paths, that can help you a lot in some close races. The cars can be handled easily, and the story....is there...? Whatever, the game is fun, and my old machine can handle it easily.
Ridge Racer a name from the mid 90's mainly on consoles finally makes an appearance on PC and fully updated for the modern era and completely surpasses all other versions of the name Ridge Racer. The game play has changed but all for the better, graphically it's superb if you have a good set up but even on the lowest settings it looks great, sound like every racer nowadays is a big part of the game and there are plenty of music tracks to keep everyone happy, sfx is also very good but it's the action which stands out, the replays are excellent when you have destroyed your rivals, plenty of cars to unlock and the various races are quite varied from the all out win at all costs to time trials and total destruction of the other racers which does make the game very similar to Need for Speed series so if you love that series then give this a go, i for one love this as it's great fun.
