Summary: This game is now my most favorite racing game of all time in my collection! I love the city's environments, the cars, the music, and most of all: Drifting! This game puts your pedal to the medal and test your skill and momentum.
Summary: Honestly I enjoy the ridge racer series. Ridge racer 5 did not turn out as good as I hoped. The driving mechanics are bad, I felt it was difficult to race with the vehicles. Drifting is difficult to control at times and the steering can be fustrating. The soundtrack was a bit annoying to me but honestly the backround voice doesnt bother me. Ridge racer 6 and 7 have better driving mechanics in my opinion so I can say it was more fun. Overall, I did not like this game.
Summary: After reading all the reviews I wanted to let people know that this Racing game is great. I think most people dont like this game cause its not realistic, but I dont want games to be realistic either. I hardly like any new games, but this one is a great racing game. The graphich is ok, but the gameplay is great !! the last Grand Prix is almost impossible on the hardest levell ! You take Sunny Beach ,Green Field on the hardest level.
Summary: I got this on the cheap thinking that it would be a decent racing game. I was wrong. I didn't know what to expect, but cars that handle EXTREMELY unrealistically, graphics that are just average in my eyes (compared to NFS 2 Hot pursuit and GT 3) and a general unexpected hardness in gameplay made me sorry I got this game. The cars are fake, which isn't too much of an issue but you have to make the fake cars good.
Summary: I picked this up on sale... now I know why it was so cheap. Stick with the other racing games if you want to actually DRIVE a car. If, on the other hand, you want a game that doesn't even resemble racing, then by all means. The play control is absolutely terrible. I know that there is a so called style to the RR games, but this time it is really unrefined. The tracks are almost all the same, with very little variation.
Summary: I read the reviews, and thought to myself "There cannot possibly be a bad Ridge Racer". After playing R4 for years, and still playing it occasionally, I popped in RR5... and wanted to bash my head into the desk. Repeatedly. While on fire. The game is nice, graphically. As an older title you can't expect much now, but the game holds its own well. The nail in the coffin, however, is the gameplay. Now, imagine Gran Turismo.
