Summary: Ridge Racer Unbounded isn't really . Lets just get that out of the way first. It has more in common with Split/Second or Burnout than classic Ridge Racer. The focus in Unbounded is on destruction and playing dirty instead of style and graceful powersliding like past RR games, but, hey, that's cool.

Pros: Varied career modes - racing, drifting, combat, The track creator is interesting
Cons: Disappointing lack of speed, Track design is uninspiring, Just one setting - a very orange city
Excerpt: Der März ist in diesem Jahr ein seltsamer Monat: So viele bekannte Spielemarken – wie Resident Evil, Ninja Gaiden oder Silent Hill – werden von motivierten Entwickler modern und neu interpretiert. Und kaum eines davon überzeugt. Ridge Racer Unbounded reiht sich leider nahtlos in diese Liste ein.
Ridge Racer Unbounded tenta inovar, mas acaba se perdendo pelo caminho
17 July 2012
Conclusion: Ridge Racer Unbounded é o retorno da franquia de corridas da Namco para os consoles desta geração. A tentativa de implementar elementos de sucesso de outros títulos não deu certo e acarretou em um game com uma jogabilidade dura, gráficos medianos e uma dificuldade bem exagerada.
Pros: Editor de pistas, Carros genéricos
Cons: Péssima jogabilidade, Dificuldade exagerada, Sistema de colisão irreal
