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. If you're the kind of person who plays "regular" racing games all the time and enjoy that straight blast of speed, you might be frustrated in trying to get your car to drift properly.
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. Overall - A very good game and since it is at a bargain price, I find it a hard deal to pass up. Enjoy!
Summary: I really love this game and wanted to pick it up to try out the 3D feature. My review is based on trying the 3D experience. Unfortunately, the 3D feature is not possible with this Disc. When you load the Disc into your PS3, it downloads an update (v1.01), but you cannot get update v2.01 which allows for 3D play.
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. Also this game is for those that fell in love with the franchise from the fourth installment from way back from the first playstation. I like it, hopefully you will too.
Summary: This game is a lot of fun and you can get very involved. The race tracks that are in this game are really nice, actually some of the nicest race circuits yet. When they come out with a new one, they should make the cars take damge when you crash. I really enjoyed this game, it’s definitely worth getting. It’s has plenty of races, so it’s not one of those games that you can just finish in a day.
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. Later races are rather difficult and seem to rely almost as much on luck as on skill.
Summary: you want a racing game with cool exotic cars, great graphics, and nice looking racing courses then this is it! but don't get your hopes up because if you're looking to have a racer simulation experience then forget it! the cars are really fast and drifting is unrealistic in this game. cars turn the corners like toy hot-wheel cars racing on electronic tracks and getting right back into the correct position to only speed up and continue racing like nothing happened.
Summary: Realistic type racing, where YOU are able to modify your vehicle after each event your able to win. several arena's to choose from, so once you manage to master one & think your done w/this game, guess again... There are six other courses for you to start all over again, w/a stripped factory vehicle. I recommend this game to any driving enthusiast!!!
Summary: RR7 is the logical next step in the Ridge Racer series, and is the best one so far. But, like most of the RR games, not without its flaws. Ridge Racer has never been about realism. The physics are about as ridiculous as it gets, the "nitrous" feature is really a rocket boost, wrecks don't damage your car, etc. RR is about fun, fast, aggressive driving, and is much easier to master than a "real" simulation like the GT series.
