  • Excerpt: The opening menu presents players with some expected sights. A Two-player Versus Mode, a Time Attack Mode, Arcade Mode and the traditional Garage. The two Modes that should raise a few eyebrows are the Racing Life and Event Challenge Modes. The Event Challenge Mode is a drive across familiar asphalt: one-off events, time trials, single-make races, tour races, tournaments, and head-to-head rival races are all found here.

  • Excerpt: R: Racing Evolution is the first racing game that I have played from the fine people at Namco. No surprise, considering their expertise in all other genres, R: Racing is not just playable, but enjoyable. Considering the level of depth in recent racing games, Namco decided to take their “Ridge Racerâ€? series along a more simulated route. I have not played any Ridge Racer title; however, I can compare it to the arcade and sim-like games in the racing genre.

R: Racing Evolution – Review

  • Excerpt: As condescending as it sounds, R: Racing Evolution is almost exactly what you'd expect from a 'serious' GameCube racer. While the game is also available for Xbox and PS2, Namco's Ridge Racer spin-off plays just like an entry level, user-friendly, jack-of-all-trades introduction into a foreign genre.

  • Conclusion: After the story mode has been beaten there is still lots to play through in RRE. The event challenge mode comes equipped with a hefty number of events. Each event must be unlocked with money (called RP in the game), but money isn’t too big of a problem if you’ve beaten the story mode. Some of the event challenges include single races, time trials, one-make race and tournament. There are some annoyances that seriously hold the game back.

  • Excerpt: Racing and a story, players have never had it so good. R: Racing Evolution may not be labeled as a Ridge Racer game, but it sure does bare a strong resemblance.

  • Conclusion: THE VERDICT: R: Racing Evolution isn't the next Ridge Racer by any means but is certainly worth a look. While hardcore Gran Turismo fans looking for an enormous amount of cars and extensive tuning options may not find what they're looking for in R: Racing Evolution, that shouldn't stop casual fans from checking it out as there's plenty on offer here.

  • Excerpt: Looking to build on their Ridge Racer success, Namco goes back to the drawing board and adds a little sim to the mix. The result is R: Racing Revolution. Although it has a few tricks up its sleeve that spice things up a bit, R: Racing Revolution is a racer that has trouble keeping up with the pack. Click here for the full review.

  • Excerpt: I was one of those weird guys that actually liked Ridge Racer V. Most gamers took one look at the game's first-generation PlayStation 2 game flaws and instantly dismissed it as an inferior addition to the Ridge Racer franchise. While I'll agree that the game was nowhere near the masterpiece that R4 was, it still offered some pretty entertaining arcade racing and absolutely oozed quality.

  • Summary: Une jolie voiture et une jolie fille sur la pochette ! On doit être sûrement en face d’un jeu magnifique ? Non ? Comment ça ce n’est pas suffisant ? bon...
  • Pros: Une jolie fille sur la pochette, Une jolie voiture sur la pochette, Un système de pression sur L'IA innovant mais pas au point du tout
  • Cons: Conduite bizarre, Scintillement et aliasing à volonté
