Summary: The games not bad, it's one of those games you can put in and do a few races when you get bored. While I personally expected a little more, at it's core it's not really a terrible game. I would say it is average.
Summary: I purchased this game because, I had purchased the Ridge Racer Unbounded so I thought it was gonna be cool, not as good as the Unbounded but good enough. However, when I opened up the game and played it, I got disappointed. When you see the intro, the game looks amazing but, when you actually start playing, it is not entertaining at all. The game is so so so easy than even i if you try to crash, the cars refused to do it. No matter how hard you try, I will never crash.
Summary: After more than 7 years, this game still holds up. I owned a launch PS3 but never bothered getting this until 2013, and I was frankly shocked by how good it is. If I'd gotten this game at launch, I don't think I'd have played anything else for months. I frankly don't think there's a better arcade racing game for PS3 even today. First of all, this is real Ridge Racer and the last game in the series you can say that about.
Summary: The graphics were "ok" but... the DRIFTING... Wtf?? This is a painfull experience for racing videogames lovers. P.S. I can't believe that, in september of 2013, shops are actually selling this s**t (in platinum edition) for 40 euros! (almost the same that GTA V).
