3.0 out of 5 stars Interesting idea but there's better racers out there April 27, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
This is the first Ridge Racer game I've ever actually played. It looked pretty interesting from the trailers so I decided to pick it up when a copy finally arrived at my local Best Buy 5 days after it was supposed to be out (Gamestop, Amazon and every other outlet seems to have also gotten the ps3 copies late). The game features destructible environment pieces scattered around the track that can either serve as shortcuts or means to wreck racers surrounding you. If that sounds familiar, it's because it totally is!

First of all, the game is rather frustrating at times. You start out with 1 car available to you and you stand no chance of catching up to any of the AI racers and will see yourself in the bottom 4 until you unlock 1 or 2 more cars. What keeps it from being an annoyingly frustrating game is that it's actually really fun to "frag" other racers. It doesn't really do much to help you overall since the lead car has probably already lapped you though. The biggest problem I seem to have is the controls.

I'm used to Hot Pursuit's excellent drifting controls. This game is much like Blur in the sense that it's much harder to control and often times just pointless. One minute you'll be just fun going to drift around a tight corner and the next you'll find yourself completely turned around (in other words, don't floor it after you drift into the wall and stop for a second). If that doesn't happen, you'll find yourself wrecking often. There's been several instances where I fill my boost/frag gauge up and go to smash through a building and my boost will end 2 ft before the wall and wreck. Also, no matter how much of a lead you think you have, if you wreck, you're going to end up at the end of the pack. You'll also frequently notice the AI rebuilding boost at an incredible rate.

3.0 out of 5 stars Very Fun, but frustrating hard May 9, 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I have enjoyed this game a lot, but it is very difficult. I do have experience with arcade racing (previous Ridge Racer game is one of my favorites) but it seems like for Namco, fun means frustration. Seriously, I play games to relax, not to get more stress... that does not mean that I do not like challenging games, but challenging does not mean frustrating.
I will continue playing it, as a matter of fact this game is really fun, but I do not know for how long, since the AI is TOO good (sometimes it feels like it cheats) and if you do not accomplish goals, you cannot unlock new content.

2.0 out of 5 stars Not a Ridge Racer game April 13, 2014
By mcdull
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
If you're Ridge Racer fans of either RR1 or up to RR7, don't bother with this game. It's not a Ridge Racer game, simple as that.
If you grew up with Ridge Racer, you would know the only goal is to race and drift to beat you components, work out the details of the best lines and where to drift gain a second or 2 faster.
This Ridge Racer Unbounded is very Americanized, trying to put element from other "racing" games into it. It's deviated too much from the originals and not in the good way. You will be overwhelmed by all the unreleased destructions and tasks, trying to destroy your opponents rather than beating them in the race.

Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
To a large extent, game reviews are extremely subjective. How you feel about a game depends on what you expect in the way of gameplay, and what I dislike might be fun for you.

That said, I dislike this game. I've played all the RR games, and they've gotten better with each iteration. Great graphics, consistent (but completely fake) physics, and lots of speed. This version has lots of speed. Everything else has been replaced with lots of flashing lights and explosions. And major crashy things. So if you like lights, explosions and crashy things, you might really enjoy this game.

And I'm not putting down explosions, flashing lights and crashy things. In some games, that's what I go in looking for. In RR, I go in looking for good clean arcade racing fun, and I didn't get that with this iteration of the game. I hope that next time out of the gate (if they survive this version) they'll get back to more fun, less explosions.

And yes, I miss Reiko. There, I said it.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fun n gritty November 23, 2013
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun game if you like burnout. More gritty and different from old ridge racers so don't expect the same. Can use a bit more originality. But a really great game

I was intrested in this since i never heard of this one. I am fmiliar with the franchise and I used to own RR for the ps1. Well this game takes place much differently than from any other RR game. Tbh this game is nothing but a copy of burn out and split second. not that they did a bad job but not expected from a rr game. the drifting is much harder and a complete joke and one of the most annoying things is the frusteration in the game. for a racing game its pretty challenging so dont expect easy wins like the ones from rr7. the enviornment in the game is destructable, its not bad but like i said this is a rr game. the new mechanic of the "power" button (which is nitrous) is a complete joke its nothing than a tiny nitrous boost but perhaps because I am still at the beginning. if you want a rr game try rr7. as for unbounded if you want a split second/burnout racing game thats challenging i guess you can go with this one. its not a bad game just the huge difference on the original concept.
