hmm tempting... tempting... have some heat

good price
shocking game AVOID!

Reviews are very mixed for this ranging from 4-9 (however the high scores indicate that some aspects of the game like the "fun" button most people won;t pick up on as it's not detailed in any tutorials). So low reviews apparently aren't playing the game as intended, which is Bugbears fault as they should have signposted functions. DOH.

Anyhow heat added and i'll wait till £15 as just started Skyrim and ME3 so got 2 big time sinks to get through.

i think if you were going to compare it to those kind of games then thats true but only because its not really similar or going to appeal to that kind of gamer its going to appeal more to people who liked burnout or SplitSecond kind of games instead of the games more focusing on the traditional racing style like forza and gran turismo

Good or bad the next cheapest price seem's to be around the £30 mark & for that reason i'am voting the deal Hot OP

Well considering it currently has 70% on metacritic, I'm not sure what is shocking about it!!
As another poster mentioned, it seemed the developers omitted to mention to reviewers, or include in tutorials the "fun button".

Original Poster

It has a rather unique control scheme featuring a drift button that any racer veterans will immediately treat as a handbrake when it's allot more subtle than that, also it encourages you to find a way of permanently keeping your power bar charged during the race by driving on the edge, drifting, taking down other opponents burnout style and smashing through preset areas on the track. I really didn't like it to begin with but stuck at it and found it very addictive once I'd nailed the controls.

This is supposed to be excellent and takes the best bits from Burnout, Need For Speed and Ridge Racer - worth a punt at that price - HOT!

as above good price crap game owned it for a day before it went back

Knew it would drop in price like this. It'll be in the £7 region like Rage/Deus EX soon.

If only it was as exciting as Rage Racer on the PS1! The Ridge Race series lost its way after that and has never fully recovered.

Heat for the price but like all previous Bugbear racing games the handling leaves a lot to be desired. At best it's a 5 out of 10.

Yet the hyper critical Edge

Review 5/10 http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o7KYBQRtN40Avoid

Yet the hyper critical Edge give it 9/10 it's not instantly accessible, most of the hate on this page is 'returned it the following day' etc. because they weren't prepared to learn the game

love the ridge racer series but was very dissapointed by this game not a patch on the others

I quite like it 7.5/10 from me and I'm harsh

single player is great online doesnt work very well and is very dead. me and 3 of my mates were trying to join eachother in a race and werent able to get more than 2 of us in the lobby even when playing a private match, shame really as it was a good game.

I will pick it up again if they ever sort out the online just hope it wont be dead by the time they do.

yeah i see what you mean but more people like them sort of games

this is actually a really good game,if you forget the fact it has ridge racer on the box

imagine this is flat out or full auto sequel and it makes more sense then being called ridge racer

remove that from the equation and you have a solid speedy acrade racer with mental handling

You have to give it a chance, very addictive and fun

Now £22.96.
