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.

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.

I was intrested in this since i never heard of this one. I am familiar 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 burnout and split second. not only that but 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 isnt like any of the rr games. 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. Another problem is the car handling in the game. The game feels like youre using a car from Gran Turismo which is fine but theres so much s*** going on and a lot of "drift" trns to pull that its very hard to handle the cars they turn slow or the drifting is just way off. I can see what they triee doing but the car handling is beyond hard because it mixes 2 things. If the car handling was similar to Midnight club or Burnout the game would be much fair. but thisbplays a major factor role because its the gameplay that isnt satisfying. The best ridge racer game would still be 7 since it holds more of the games originality. As for this one it feels like a bad copy of Burnout games. For a second I thought I was playing Burnout revenge with bad handling.Read more ›

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.

Overall the game gives racing fans a good time as you speed through streets courses and do some damage along the way for the top 3 place finishes. The detail as of the course as well as the cars is astounding as are the elemental and visual effects throughout the race from littered papers flying around when you speed through a turn to when you accidentally smash into another car or something else and see the debris fly. The controls are pretty simplistic the standard gas/break/drift and acceleration is the game has any annoyances it would be that when you drift it seems harder to keep control of the car which while understandable to a point still seems overly difficult in the game too. Still the game gave me what I wanted a fun time and the ability to challenge friends or other challengers online as well.

So if you're looking for a affordable racing game that while not the newest but still fun I'd say this is worth taking a look at.

Update 05-09-2014

Sadly while at first I started off enjoying the game the awful controls and game elements turned me off really quickly. While it's understood that when you progress and are able to afford a better car with better specs almost none of the earlier cars worked remotely well. While the first track was hard enough I thought after getting a few upgrades I'd see some improvement but never did. The drifting is still horrific as you pretty much turn a 180 with no way to control your car and lose your place pretty quickly. It's still not the most horrible game I've played but sadly it has quickly reached the top five of games I've come to regret buying.
