Ridge Racer 2 Review

VideoGamer.com
14 May 2007
  • Excerpt: When is a sequel not a sequel? Yearly rehashes might sound like a page out of EA's business model, but in truth the largest video game publisher in the world is only really guilty of doing so with its sports games, which more often than not appeal to a huge audience of casual gamers. Namco, a Japanese company with quite a pedigree, is one of the most respected developers amongst so called 'hardcore' gamers, but it seems even they can't turn down a simple opportunity for...

  • Excerpt: One of the launch titles for the PSP was Namco’s Ridge Racer. The game was basically a compilation of classic Ridge Racer courses from previous games. It proved to be very successful and an instant classic for Sony’s handheld. Commonsense dictated that a sequel would eventually make an appearance, and here it is, the imaginatively-titled Ridge Racer 2 (RR2). RR2 offers nearly three times as much playtime as its predecessor.

Ridge Racer 2 (PSP)

  • Conclusion: Whether you want to spend £30 on what is effectively an add-on pack for the first game really depends on how much you love Ridge Racer. Perhaps if Namco do another one of these next year it will be time to start moaning at them for totally milking the franchise and turning it into an EA-style game series, but for now you can enjoy many of the superb tracks from Rage Racer and Type 4, some of which haven’t seen the light of day for nearly ten years.
  • Pros: Ah the missing tracks from Rage and ‘4 – I wondered why they weren’t on the first PSP game, It’s classic Ridge Racer and it still plays well today, Loads of tracks, cars and music
  • Cons: Nothing more than a track add-on pack really, Some brand-new tracks would have been nice

Ridge Racer 2 - PSP

Futuregamez.net
23 November 2006
  • Summary: It’s fun, there is some extra content, and it looks great, but it’s not really enough to justify the full-sequel price point – take an extra 15-20 of this score if you have the first game.

  • Pros: It’s that same slip-slidey gameplay we all adore, Looks stunning on that big handheld screen, immense fun
  • Cons: Basically last year's effort with little extra, huge difficulty spike halfway through, frustrating opponent AI

  • Conclusion: Still ridiculously tail-happy, still gloriously thrilling, still perfectly suited to PSP. But lacking in new content to deserve fully fledged sequel status
