  • Excerpt: From the creators of Flatout comes a completely new take on the stagnant Ridge Racer formula - one that blends a bit of the former's stunts with Split/Seconds’ real-time track destruction for shortcuts and danger, and manages to both play unlike any Ridge Racer before while still keeping the drifty...

Ridge Racer Unbounded

Playstation Illustrated

  • Excerpt: First, I have to say it. "Unbounded" is not a word. Something may be bound, or it may be unbound. The past tense of unbind is unbound. The preceding has been a public service announcement on behalf of all of my English teachers. We now return to our racing game review already in progress...

1 June 2012
  • Excerpt: I was recently burned by one of my favorite racing franchises when Ridge Racer for the PlayStation Vita turned out to be a shallow mess and an embarrassing low point for the series.

  • Summary: A familiar yet enjoyable arcade racer.
  • Pros: Great faced paced action; track creator allows for limitless new content; great driving soundtrack.
  • Cons: As far as you can get from a realistic racer; fails to innovate in event types; game seems very similar to others in genre.

Ridge Racer Unbounded (PS3) Review

411mania.com
9 May 2012
  • Summary: Ridge Racer Unbounded is a surprisingly good racing game. Besides some remixes of older Ridge Racer songs Unbounded has almost nothing to do with the other games in the franchise. Ridge Racer Unbounded is a solid arcade racing game, with a great drifting mechanic.

  • Excerpt: Beyond just racing to the finish line, you can ram into rivals - doing so with your power boost activated (and charged by drafting, jumps, and drifting) takes them out instantly ala Burnout, otherwise, you have to wittle their health bars down to nothing.

  • Summary: From the explosive tankers to the destructible environments, Shatter Bay makes a great first impression. Franchise loyalists may be turned off by this brand new direction, but anybody who loves Burnout will have a blast playing through Ridge Racer Unbounded.

Ridge Racer Unbounded is a dramatic departure for the series, but one that's filled with some gloriously destructive, fast-paced racing.

GameSpot
11 April 2012
  • Summary: Ridge Racer Unbounded is, as its name suggests, Ridge Racer without limits. Your cars are no longer simple drifting machines, but tools of destruction, and the fictitious, urban tracks of Shatter Bay are your calamitous playground.
  • Pros: Well designed tracks that reward destruction, Satisfying takedown system, Jumping your car out of exploding buildings, Community-led online modes that reward creativity
  • Cons: Unintuitive track creator, Cinematic replays come at expense of gameplay

GameTrailers
4 April 2012
  • Excerpt: Coming from FlatOut developer Bugbear Entertainment, it’s clear that Unbounded isn’t your daddy's Ridge Racer. The exuberant arcade announcer is out and destructive carnage is in, but does this explosive racer hold up despite its tenuous ties to the brand?
