Summary: Ridge racer needed some new material so they decided to go with the Burnout formula. But they Failed. Stupid cars, horrible tracks. Good Graphics. but that does not matter. The overall aspect i got from this game was it was trying too hard to be burnout. Destroying cars and buildings got me that factor. Compared to Burnout Paradise i'd rather get that game. The game has cops but they can't bust you and they just get in the race.
Unlike any RR you've ever played! And I don't mean in a good way!

Summary: To a large extent, game reviews are extremely subjective. How you feel about a game depends on what you expect in the way of gameplay, and what I dislike might be fun for you. That said, I dislike this game. I've played all the RR games, and they've gotten better with each iteration. Great graphics, consistent (but completely fake) physics, and lots of speed. This version has lots of speed. Everything else has been replaced with lots of flashing lights and explosions.
Summary: I had high hopes for Ridge Racer Unbounded. I was quickly let down by the lack of environments. Everything and I mean EVERYTHING looks the same. There are different districts but they all re-use and rehash the same tracks and areas. Tracks are very dark and have a odd orange hue to everything. The multiplayer component feels like it's partially finished and the overall game feels like a work in progress. Who makes a racing game without lap times and total race time!!!
Summary: Ridge Racer stopped being Ridge Racer after number 7. They changed the thing
that made Ridge Racer unique, the drifting style, push a button activate a
drift, in this game however drifts are close to impossible to do. Another thing
that lets this game down is it's one of those racing games where the difficulty
is ridiculous, it takes several go's to win the first dam race!
