Create the ultimate ride
The classic drift racing game returns to the PlayStation brand in style and with loads of new customization features. In exterior creation mode, players can select, view, and apply body kits for almost any area of their car. Kits include lowers, lifts, airflow and even major body modification. Once the kits are applied, players can head to the paint and body shop to have their specific paint tone applied as the backdrop for their killer custom decals. If you're ride still isn't hot enough, consider adding some wheels from the wheel shop for that extra bit of style.

If exteriors aren't your thing, then consider fine tuning the handing. Customizable Handling mode allows you to tweak cornering performance by adjusting tire pressure and suspension to your chosen settings. Feel the turns with sport suspension or soften the landings with something more touring oriented. Either way, you can pick just the right feel for your favorite track, rival racer, or experience level.

Nitrous boosts have always been a central part to any racers' strategy, but before Ridge Racer 7 there wasn't any control over the type or amount of gas. Now, you have total control over such minutiae as the number of tanks, charge rate, even total boost limit. If you prefer to have more control over nitrous while racing, consider the new "flex nitrous," which can be turned off or on at the driver's discretion.

Improved cars, improved performance
A wide range of sports cars are available in Ridge Racer, with over 40 to choose from. Including the customization options listed above, each car has over 200,000 variations in terms of control and appearance. Debuting in this title are two impressive sportsters: the Centellee and the Magnifico. The Centellee from Terrazi Motors blasts off the line with a 4000cc V8 engine and has an unbelievable top speed of just over 210 mph. Not to skimp on looks, the body of the Centellee is hand-crafted and recreated perfectly on-screen.

Another other welcome addition to the Ridge Racer family is the Magnifico, known the world round for its unmatched luxurious interior. One of the new generation of light bodied sports cars, the Magnifico can ramp up to 178 mph via a 2000cc 4-cyvlinder inline engine.

On the track, the cars still accelerate and drift in that quintessential Ridge Racer arcade style. Large, sliding turns and short bursts of air are the name of the game as you speed past your opponents in a blur of color. The track count for this installment has been pushed to an astonishing 44- more tracks than any any previous Ridge Racer title. The variety of locales is truly astounding, as you'll be racing by rushing waterfalls one minute and near the top of a snow-capped peak the next. The track layouts have something for every racing fan and style. Ridge Racer 7 grabs the PlayStation 3's processing power and doesn't let go. Running in 1080p high definition video at 60 frames per second, the courses look lusher, the tracks feel faster, and the cars look gorgeous.

I am reviewing this because of the many unfair negative reviews that I have read. The game graphics are superb. My TV is High Definition and running the games in 1080i (Maximum resolution of my TV), the game graphics are unbelievable.

The game play is also superb. The game is not easy, I would say that it is medium in difficulty. The cornerstone of the game is drifting the car and being able to control the car drifting in corners at very high speeds. You win races, get credit and new equipment and then buy more equipment and so on. It takes a few hours to really master drifting properly. AND then the fun begins.

Once you mastered the game and won the huge amounts of single player games on the games itself, you can then compete online. There are many wonderful tracks with immaculate scenery. The games allows you to play any of those, with any of the huge number of cars that you have, in normal or reverse directions. The possible iterations are endless.

Another impressive thing about the game is the handling of the cars. Each car feels different and handles differently. The upgrades to each of the cars changes the experience entirely.

To-Date, this is the best Game I have on the PS3, and I find myself playing for hours. Very Challenging in parts, and really fun.

It also support to players where you can race against a second player on the same machine.

The Game is HIGHLY RECOMMENDED.

I admit that I am a fan of racing games. To me, the things that matter most are a strong sense of speed, good handling of the vehicles, and graphics. I have played Ridge Racer games on the original Playstation, and I admit that they sucked...bad! However, I picked up RR7 on the launch day of the PS3, and I will say that I made the best choice! RR7 has realistic looking graphics, great music, fun controls (albeit with a moderate learning curve), and a good sense of speed. I highly recommend it for people looking for a racing game featuring modern, realistic vehicles. There are no weapons or anything, this is pure racing, but makes extensive use of the online Playstation Network, has free downloadable content, online rankings galore, and countless modes of online competitive racing, complete with online gambling (with points). I could go on and on about it, but the best thing to do is just buy a copy. You will not be disappointed if you enjoy pure racing games.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Lisa Shea HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on August 16, 2012
Ridge Racer 7 PS3 is a car racing game that relies on drift. You don't just race in a straight line around a track - you have to skid along the corners in order to win.

Much of how much you like or dislike this game is going to come down to how much you enjoy that idea. If you're the kind of person who plays "regular" racing games all the time and enjoy that straight blast of speed, you might be frustrated in trying to get your car to drift properly. It might go against what you want to do, and you just won't enjoy the play.

Also, the game isn't meant to be a realistic racing sim. You can easily ping-pong off of the side barriers and walls and other cars. They simply nudge you back into line to keep going. So if part of your skill is in talented avoidance of other cars, or perhaps scaring them into easing off, that won't work here.

So, that being said, Ridge Racer 7 is quite good at what it does offer. For that fun action-movie style of racing where you're skidding with squealing tires around a curve, knocking your opponent off-line and then nitro-zipping to victory, you'll have it made. The cars' traits are customizeable. You can even change how they look. You've got a selection of tracks to work with as part of the single-player game, and then you can take it online to challenge other top notch racers.

Yes, the game isn't easy. You'll have to practice a fair amount to get deep into the game. I don't consider that a bad thing. It lets you build up the skill set necessary to win and it keeps you interested in moving forward.

I wasn't personally fond of the music, but they do have an option to turn it off. So I simply did that and played my own MP3s while I raced. Not really a bit issue.

First off, I honestly do not understand all the hate and Negative Reviews "Ridge Racer 7" always seems to get..it seems a lot of people complain about it being totally unrealistic with no sense of real world physics whatsoever,well thats what an "Arcade" racer means,if you want Real world physics and handling,Buy "GT5" or "Dirt 3",they are about as close as you are going to get to a real "SIM" on the "PS3"..I myself love both the "GT" and "DIRT" Series,I also race IRacing and project Cars on the "PC" to get my "SIM" Fix so to speak,BUT..I also LOVE a gr8 "Arcade" Racer,and IMHO "RR7" is a GR8 Arcade racer,it's super Fun,the graphics are simply stunning..what is really amazing is the fact that "RR7" was a "PS3" launch title,which means it came out in, or around 2006 & they still would give most newer titles on the "PS3" one hell of a run for their money with the possible exception of titles like "NFS Hot Pursuit" & "NFS Most Wanted" which are pretty much THE best looking titles on the "PS3" hands down.

Also "RR7" works extremely well with both the "Logitech DFGT" & "G27" which is an absolute must for me,because I only play Racing titles that have wheel support,Once you start using a decent wheel and pedal set for your Racing titles,you will NEVER EVER go back to a standard Controller..Trust me!

I Honestly have a gr8 time with "RR7" and enjoy it immensely,it is it's own animal and there really is not another racing title to compare it too..it is very unique with it's own style and driving mechanics...that to be fair,do take some time to get used to,and one should know this before buying this title,this is really not a pickup and play racer..One needs to spend some time with it,get used to the some what strange driving dynamics and timing of your drifts in the sharp corners..
