Old school arcade racer in a new skin. Possibly the last of dying breed.

Summary: Vroom vroom. Do you remember the days of Daytona USA, Cruis'n' USA, San Francisco Rush, Outrun, Hang On, and countless other arcade (and arcade-to-console port) racers? Are you tired of endless Need For Speed, DiRT, Burnout, GT, Forza, and kart racing clones?
Summary: Ridge Racer 7 PS3 is a car racing game that relies on drift. You don't just race in a straight line around a track - you have to skid along the corners in order to win. Much of how much you like or dislike this game is going to come down to how much you enjoy that idea.
Summary: To make this short, I love this game. The only thing I would have improved upon is the rubberband AI. Word of advice (if you are a newcomer to this game) - Stay in about 3rd place until the final lap and then try your best to get in 1st place.
Summary: It's a fun game. If your looking for a game with realistic handling and great and vast selection of cars; you might look elsewhere. I think this game is great for the anyone that isn't ready to drive but has an idea.
Summary: Overall, good racer. Got this in 2010, 4 years after its original release. Graphics texturing and reflections are a little primitive by PS3 standards now, but for its time it is a great showcase of the famous Ridge Racer sensation of speed.
Summary: I primarily bought this game for split-screen multi-player races with friends (who don't have PS3 to pla on-line. What I found was that this game is extremely fun for a single player. I have found it challenging to master the sliding around corners.
