Ridge Racer DS

Family Friendly Gaming
2 February 2013
  • Excerpt: Could someone please explain to me this association many game developers have with fast cars, and undressing women? As if exploiting women somehow enhances the racing action. As if enticing young (and maybe old) men to lust is a worthwhile goal. It adds nothing to the game, and in fact takes away from it. Ridge Racer DS takes Namco's well known racing franchise on to the Nintendo DS. This is the franchise that has always done a great job at drifting around the corners.

Ridge Racer DS

Fragland

  • Excerpt: Racen op de Nintendo DS was enkel mogelijk met Need for Speed Underground 2 DS van EA, tot Namco met Ridge Racer DS op de markt kwam. In Japan en Amerika was deze racetitel een launchgame; ik vraag me dus af hoe het kan dat het spel zo’n vertraging heeft opgelopen dat er nu pas in Europa mee op de proppen wordt gekomen. We zullen maar zeggen dat we het gewoon zijn en zonder veel zeuren aanvaarden dat het hier maanden te laat is.

Ridge Racer 3D

  • Excerpt: The crown prince of drift games comes to the all new 3DS and Namco Bandai have pulled yet another fine incarnation of this classic racer onto the hand held. Ridge Racer hasn’t changed much since the first game hit the arcades. Sure, graphics have gotten better and sound is enhanced, but the gameplay maintains a familiar feel which many will be happy to see translates well.

  • Excerpt: When you think of the original Ridge Racer , you think of the smell of a freshly purchased console, emulated old-school shoot-‘em-ups being played whilst the game loads, you think of Namco, you think of 1995 and your first experience with the unknown quantity that was the Playstation.

Ridge Racer DS

The Armchair Empire

  • Conclusion: enter the race as a guest and use a car from your file. I found no problems or limitations in multiplayer and found the experience enjoyable. In Car Attack mode, players race against a single AI opponent in a one-on-one race and if the human player wins, he or she will unlock the car they just faced. Unlocking some cars can be tricky, but again, this game is meant to be hard. There are about 30 vehicles in total in the game.

Ridge Racer DS

Nintendo World Report
22 December 2004
  • Summary: You can use your thumb for drifting, but just make sure the car that picks you up doesn't have a copy of the game around.
  • Pros: Catchy music tracks, Frame rate is smooth and fast, giving a good sense of speed, Very good multi-card and single-card mutiplayer options
  • Cons: Collision annoyances make it it hard to stay at top speed, RR64 veterans might find the game too easy, The above combine to make the final challenges near impossible, Touch screen control does not work; D-Pad control barely works at higher speeds

Ridge Racer DS

Project COE
7 December 2004
  • Conclusion: Compared to Asphalt Urban GT, Ridge Racer DS doesn’t look good. It has some pretty ugly textures, especially during the credits. Blocky backgrounds and a low polygon count doesn’t make this game jaw-dropping. Thankfully, a nice sense of speed means that you won’t have much time to notice. No loading whatsoever was really appreciated. RR DS has a nice selection of songs, including a few surprises that will surely please some gamers (Mushroom Kingdom anyone?).
