Summary: Kind of a lost gem of a game. This seems to be a side story in the Ridge Racer universe with a plot as RR4 had with slightly different racing mechanics and physics. Not an amazing racer but pretty good. Good graphics and sound, tension and villian rivalries. Not for the casual racer but highly recommended for Namco die-hards. Oddly, the PS2 version seems superior to the Xbox version. Prompt shipping and good condition of item.
Summary: This game is fun - the range & style of cars available is nice. The main thing that prevented me from giving it a higher score is that the story mode is too short. You will want to purchase a steering wheel controller to get the most out of this game, also.

Summary: Surprisingly I purchased this game at a RiteAid from their DVD rack. It was $20 bucks and since I just recently got my PS2 for Christmas I didn't have much games to play with it besides my EyeToy collection but my house is too dark to play it properly ! (I_I) I've always been a Racing game lover from the days of Gran Turismo 1 for the Good Old PlayStation. So I knew buying this game probably wont be a disappointment.
Summary: While this game has arcade features and eye candy like most other Namco games, fans of driving simulators will find it appealing thanks to a very good physics engine and a solid collection of real-world cars. This game has excellent replays, challenging courses (including 3 real-world courses), and graphics almost as good at Gran Turismo 3.
Summary: I bought this game new from Electronics Boutique(...) . It was the cheapest game they had. At first, when I took it home I looked at the graphics and thought I got what I paid for. I almost returned it. Then my mother who doesn't play any games played this one with me and beat me. I started to appreciate the skill necessary to play the game. Although I am still not very good at it, I can certainly appreciate the game more.
Summary: Definitivamente este juego tiene muy buenos graficos y excelente banda sonora. Pero una carrera con carros que parecen unas tortugas (por lo lento), no es carrera. Si lo que buscas en un juego de carros apacionante, donde la adrenalina te ponga a vibrar, te recomiendo Burnout 2 y Project Gottam Racing 2. Son los mejores!!!.
Summary: Have you ever wanted to feel like you have lightning-quick reflexes even though you know dang well that turtles could effortlessly give you the slip then by all means get this. The Ridge Racer series should in no way be associated with this low-speed crash nor should Gran Tourismo(not by any stretch my favorite but perfect for simulation fans)or Sega GT. No, this is in a class of it's own-low class. Namco can and has done better than this.
Summary: The Ridge Racer series has always been about arcade-style driving. Sail off into the corners at full speed, swing the rear end around, jam the gas, and head down the straight. With Racing Evolution, Namco opts to inject a bit of realism into the game, transforming it into a dull jack-of-all-trades hybrid. The developers try to spice things up a bit with a Story mode that forces you to play through various types of racing in order to unlock new vehicles.
Summary: R Racing Evolution is a terrificly neat game for the true racing game fanatic. Sadly, a lot of people will miss out on the R racing experience if they listen to what the uninformed idiots who write for the gamming magazines are saying about it - it seems the 'Need for Speed and Midnight Club' crowd find this game a bit too challenging.
