Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is incredible. I have a love/hate relationship with it. There is a learning curve to it with regards to drifting, which is a required skill if you wish to place in any of the races. At first I hated it, cars kept spinning out from oversteer... or I'd smash into a wall due to understeer. Went searching on forums to see if there was any kind of trick to it, general consensus is PRACTICE! Which is what video games are about. That frustrating, wanting to throw your controller through the wall because it "JUST WON'T DO WHAT YOU WANT!" feeling followed by pure ecstatic nirvana when you finally nail it.

This game is a sure departure from the original Ridge Racer formula where you're basically on rails and the cars float around the circuit. Bug Bear, the developer behind Flat-Out really knows how to make a racer!

There is an interesting aspect to the game that happens when nailing several drifts in a row and boosting through opponents, low-walls and shortcuts it seems to transform into a melee of flashes and hectic explosions that evoke pure adrenalin. Like raging out, hulk-status. Not in a cheesy way, but it does remind me of Mario after he gets the flashing star.

Another little thing I like is that once a level loads... it's loaded. You can restart the race with zero-load time. Which is great for when you fail into a wall and get dropped back to 12 place on your last lap.

A minor quirk that doesn't detract too much from the game is every once in a while after boosting though a shortcut or after a "takedown" and you get the (skippable) cinematic, upon resuming racing it might throw you into a wall or into the next curve at a very unsalvageable angle. This however happens rarely, but frequently enough to mention.

Yep, nothing like a real driving simulation, this is fantasy driving 101. I mean how real is Call of Duty part whatever? This is actually fun though. I didn't have success for the first 3 races, but it was enough fun that I kept going and won my 4th race. I also upgraded after a couple of losing races and got a new car and track, although I stunk. That was nice, and along with the fun, kept it entertaining. After the newness, I don't see myself racing this nonstop, but I can see popping it in for 4-5 races once/twice a week or so for a pure set of adrenaline races. It's kind of like a cross of Blur and a modernized Ridge Racer of old, meaning much better graphics. It's got cars galore, fancy, powerful, etc, but like blur you destroy stuff. You don't destroy it the same way, but you can boost your car right through buildings or other cars, and even without boosting, you can smash through quite a bit...again, this isn't a real driving simulation. Oh, as a final note, the sounds are amazing to me, I jacked up the surround, and IMO, no other racer has the sound effects of this bad boy!

2.0 out of 5 stars Not Ridge Racer March 22, 2014
By K
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
I bought this game when it was $3.79 On XBOX Live.

This is absolutely nothing like any other games in the Ridge Racer series.... and I have played them all extensively...

Keep that in mind when you get started with this game; because if you are expecting Ridge Racer you are never gonna find anything that even resembles any of the previous incarnations of Ridge Racer, and that may blind you to what is a pretty darn good game....

DRIFTING - THE BAD: This game has drifting mechanics that are completely unlike any that have been seen previously in or outside the Ridge Racer series. There is NOTHING in the game that explains this. No Tutorial. No Help Section. No Voice Coach. Because the controls are so unique most racing game fans who experiment with them will probably get very frustrated, as you generally will not get the result you expect from the drift button. It is worth mentioning that the drift controls in this game are almost the polar opposite of the powersliding mechanics used throughout the Ridge Racer series.

DRIFTING - THE GOOD: Drifting well is amazingly easy to do! The controls are very solid once you get used to them. It is very satisfying to blast out of wicked curves. I find that the best method for me is to drift without letting up on the gas, until the nose of my car is pointing in the direction I want to go and then let go of the drift button and tap the break. It is a very quick tap if you are under 100mph, at speeds above 100mph you need to hold it a little longer. Try it a couple times and you will get a feel for it. Try it for half an hour and you will be ripping around the curves like nothing.

GAMEPLAY - THE BAD: The gameplay is as unique as the drift controls.

5.0 out of 5 stars Give it a chance! November 9, 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I bought this game after trying several other racing games and returning them. I like simulation games like Forza, but sometimes they lack the adrenaline, and I miss the old arcade racers. I bought Ridge Racer with not too high of hopes because of the reviews, but I was surprised. This is the most fun racing game I have ever played, hands down. Make no mistake, this is a very difficult racing game to master. Until you understand the drift, it can be extremely frustrating. I almost returned it after being stuck on the first level for like 10 races. Once the drift "clicked" with me I never looked back. The game became easier, but still very challenging and super fun. It is not a realistic game, but if you're going for that there are plenty of other titles out there for that.

The only con I can think of is that the drab city environment can get a little depressing. I wish that they would keep the same speed and mechanics of the game and put it in different venues across a variety of landscapes. I hope that they decide to make a new one for the Xbox one or PS4 that addresses the environment.

Give it a chance, master the drift, and it will be a surprisingly rewarding racing experience!
