R: Racing Evolution

Into Liquid Sky

  • Excerpt: I've always found that Namco's Ridge Racer series was a blast in it's arcade-style controls. Nothing was more fun than taking a turn at a ridiculous speed, turning sideways and tapping the brake enough to powerslide through the turn, only to gun it and come racing out the other end. When Namco decided to take a more simulation bent to their racing series, I wondered how well it would work out.
  • Pros: Great looking presentation, cars and courses, Racing Life mode is a nice idea, Quality audio, GC version comes with free, acman Vs.
  • Cons: A little light on customization, No car damage and AI is predictable, Racing Life could be less linear

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: R: Racing Evolution isn't the next Ridge Racer by any means but is certainly worth a look. While hardcore Gran Turismo fans looking for an enormous amount of cars and extensive tuning options may not find what they're looking for in R: Racing Evolution, that shouldn't stop casual fans from checking it out as there's plenty on offer here.
