This game is just fun folks and I think
that itís pretty much established itself as a must have game on this new
console in the Australian Marketplace. Who knows what treats are in
store for PSP owners down under, but in the mean time Ridge Racer have
presented us with a very solid game that is a lot of fun to play. For
those who are not used to the series and shame on you, Ridge Racer is
the quintessential arcade racer for those who want to get in and get
playing. There are others on the market but nothing really holds up to
what we have in store for you here.
game is absolute eye candy and it is perfectly suited to the 16:9 screen
on the PSP and it truly is lush. The style of racing is straight forward
and there is a learning curve of about 5 minutes if that. Of course to
develop a better driving style will take a bit longer but to just get in
and enjoy this great game is practically an immediate process.
though the cars at the start of the game are cool, you can progress
throughout it and get even better ones as you unlock levels and
vehicles. They are the type of incentives that will make you play
through the game even more for the great rewards that are on offer. Make
sure that you have a good play through the game as when you unlock bits
and pieces you are going to want more.
those of you who have been paying attention, Namco has seen fit to put
in the best tracks throughout the series, and some only seen in arcades
for this edition. Add to that about 4 new tracks specifically for the
PSP and you know that you are going to have a blast with this title.
audio is taken care of by 30 odd tunes that are from all over the series
and they suit the title perfectly. I was frankly amazed at how much has
been packed into this game and the fact that a lot of bigger publishers
seem to be having problems in doing something just as good.
solid affair, I heartily recommend the Ridge Racer game for PSP. The
level of detail in the game, superb graphics and killer audio will make
this title a keeper on this platform. This is what gaming is all about!
