Summary: Great Launch Title!!! I have virtually every Ridge Racer release starting on the Playstation console (don't have the N64 release) up through the PSP (no X box 360 release yet) and enjoy all these titles immensely. Ridge Racer IV was my first title that I played, and certainly my favorite.
Conclusion: A very exciting game, and very much worth a rental and even a buy at the right price. Once you get used to powersliding (which doesn't take long) it has a great feel. It is very much an 'arcade' racing game, so don't expect simulation style control.
Summary: Namco has put together the ultimate Ridge Racer compilation for PSP owners. GAMEPLAY: Ridge Racer games have always been about driving fast and power sliding around turns. Ridge Racer for the PSP is no different.
Summary: I loved this game even though I still haven't finished playing it. I don't really bother playing for new rewards and stuff, I just play the Single Races and the little extra game they have with the annoying music!
Summary: This is the first game I bought for the PSP and it's a great one. It really shows off the power of the system, the sound is incredible, the graphics jaw dropping, and it's immensely playable. One minor gripe though is that the basic tour is waaaaaay too easy.
Summary: the problem of this game is this.. simply by deliberately drifting the car, you can avoid hitting the boundary, hence the reduction of speed.. although drifting too recklessly could slow you down.. but a well managed but a bit aimless drifting can help avoiding penalty..
