Summary: Like a Burnout game, only with the controls done in such an obtuse way as to not be sued for being a Burnout game. To drift, you don't brake/turn, then accelerate. Instead you hold down the B button before a turn to enter 'drift mode' where your car spins slowly on its axis, like a heavily weighted top, except the spin increases geometrically the longer you hold the turn...
Summary: This is a very fast and furious style of game. The early levels are very challenging and require skill. You have to gain enough points to get the cars you need to win each level. It is very fun, and you can use your xbox wired controller for gameplay which makes it feel like a real arcade game.
Summary: Great game, more fun than I thought it would be. It's quite a bit different than Ridge Racers of the past but it's a very good game, highly recommended if you can pick it up on the cheap like I did.
Ridge Racer is an Awesome arcade high speed racing game!

Summary: I got this title about a month ago and at 1st thought (after only playing 15-20 mins of the game) maybe I shouldn't of gotten this game. It seemed dark and a little cartoon-like car racing animation. I was just playing in the starting city, when I ventured out to play other cities with different goals (i.e. knock out, Speed, Demolition, Time trials, best time and others) it was a blast.
Flat Out Speed: A Burning Need (In a Split Second)

Conclusion: This is arcade racing by numbers. Basically it has taken notes from every decent arcade racer of the past few years and tried to meld them all together. It does achieve its goals and raps them up in some quite nice eye candy. If you liked NFS: The Run or Hot Pursuit 2010, Burnout Paradise City, any of the Flat Outs or the much overlooked Split Second then you will certainly find something here to please.
