Ridge Racer V

Playstation Illustrated
26 October 2001
  • Excerpt: The PS2 can kick some serious graphics butt - Ridge Racer V is an excellent example of this. The graphics are good enough to simply sit back and watch. The developers evidently realized this, since you can do exactly that in the Music Player mode. In this mode, you're treated to the pumping, heavy beats of the excellent soundtrack, accompanied by computer controlled in-game graphics of cars racing around the track.

Ridge Racer V

The Armchair Empire
12 January 2001
  • Conclusion: Where the game takes a serious nosedive is its audio. The soundtrack this time around is nowhere near as good as the one in R4. This time around we get some very uninspired techno and guitar driven tunes that get very grating on the ears. The worst thing though is the outrageously bad voice acting of the announcer (who sounds suspiciously like Leonardo from the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles cartoon).

  • Excerpt: Welcome, my friends, to the first must-have title on the PlayStation2. Not surprisingly, it's a Namco game. Ridge Racer V does for the PS2 what Soul Calibur did for the Dreamcast launch: secured Namco as one of the best programmers in the industry, if not the best. If you actually had the money to import a PlayStation2, you better sell that kidney, give blood, donate hair, or do whatever it takes to get your hands on this game.

  • Excerpt: Namco's Ridge Racer series is by far one of the most recognized racers ever. In my opinion the company has produced some of the best videogame series including ones like Tekken, Ace Combat and Ridge Racer which make Namco what it is today. The only other company that comes in mind for best series is Square for their Final Fantasy, Front Mission, and Chrono Trigger/Cross. Ridge Racer has evolved a lot over the past five years.
