Well, we've played Ridge Racer on PSP to death, and marvelled at its resemblance to RR5 on PS2. There's only so much braking, accelerating and drifting we can do before putting that weird golf game back in the slot. But now we have a different RR challenge: the DS version no less, with its strap'n'stylus control combo. Lemme at it! Me first!
Ahem. There are three environments in Ridge Racer DS, each with three courses of varying difficulty: Novice, Intermediate and Expert. The first course is Ridge Racer Classic, with its backdrop of the original RR cityscape. The crowded downtown, the mountain tunnels and the sunny beaches are all present and correct. For the RR elite, there is a high speed race through the moonlit downtown. Number two is Revolution Northwest with the heights of the evergreen mountains and the plunge into the valleys and canyons. These narrow, twisting courses require all your driving skill and precision to master, especially in the latter stages. Lastly, there's Renegade Southwest, and three courses set in the sun-baked desert that'll really test your driving skills, as gulches and twisting tunnels pass by in a blur.
In solo mode, there are three main racing options on offer: Quick race is pretty self-explanatory - two laps around the RR Novice course in an S-Class car against 11 opponents
