Ridge Racer Unbounded


From the creators of Flatout comes a completely new take on the stagnant Ridge Racer formula - one that blends a bit of the former's stunts with Split/Seconds' real-time track destruction for shortcuts and danger, and manages to both play unlike any...

Unbounded's soundtrack is excellent. I'm not usually a fan of techno or dubstep, but within the context of this game, it works. It really does fit the fast pace of the racing and somewhat light-hearted take on things. The game doesn't take itself too...

Ridge Racer Unbounded (PS3) Review


A Ridge Racer like no other.

Ridge Racer Unbounded is a surprisingly good racing game. Besides some remixes of older Ridge Racer songs Unbounded has almost nothing to do with the other games in the franchise. Ridge Racer Unbounded is a solid arcade racing game, with a great...

Ridge Racer Unbounded Review


Mind the gap.

Lots of great new ideas for Ridge Racer; Pretty, grimy, nice road effects and explosions

Everything is stolen; Buggy, poor handling; You won't after you try it in Unbounded

Unfortunately, none of these ideas are original and they were all better accomplished in the titles that originated them. Take one of the older models for a spin around the block and see for yourself.

Ridge Racer Unbounded Review


If ever there was an an advocate for the inclusion of thorough tutorials in videogames, they'll likely illustrate their point with Ridge Racer Unbounded for years to come. As much as we bemoan too much hand-holding in modern gaming, Unbounded takes the...

Finally drifting round a hairpin.

Ridge Racer Unbounded


Bugbear Entertainment knows a thing or two about cars crashing into one another. As the studio behind the FlatOut franchise, they've shown they can create a driving game that melds crazy excitement with solid handling.

What Ridge Racer Unbounded does right is high-thrills racing and crazy action -- like smashing through a municipal building only to boost off an elevated train track that then leads you into a truck filled with explosives. It is unfortunate that the...

Ridge Racer Unbounded Review


I've always loved Ridge Racer. I almost always know exactly what to expect. However, Bugbear Entertainment has gone and tossed a wrench into the works; they've implemented high-octane, high-intensity moments we've experienced in games like...

The Ugly: “…not sure I’ll ever 100% understand the drifting in this damn game.”

Ridge Racer Unbounded Review


Ridge Racer Unbounded is a dramatic departure for the series, but one that's filled with some gloriously destructive, fast-paced racing.

Well designed tracks that reward destruction ; Satisfying takedown system ; Jumping your car out of exploding buildings ; Community-led online modes that reward creativity

Unintuitive track creator ; Cinematic replays come at expense of gameplay

And really, that's what Unbounded excels at: balls-to-the wall, explosive action. Truth be told, it's Ridge Racer by name only and a massive departure from previous games in the series. But there's so much to like here, so much joy to be had fragging...

Ridge Racer Unbounded Review


As a long-time fan of both the Ridge Racer series and developer Bugbear, the news that they were merging piqued my interested in Unbounded ten-fold. When the culmination finally arrived, I was in shock.

City Creator is awesome ; Slick visuals ; Sense of speed is great ; Fabulous destruction

Steep learning curve ; Repetitive track design

Ridge Racer Unbounded (Xbox 360 / PS3) Review


Breaking the boundaries, or should I say “Unbounding” the boundaries is the latest installment in the Ridge Racer series.

quick speed racing is highy addictive ; polished graphics ; new "destruction" twist for the series ; create features add hours of extended value

borrowed ideas, not too fresh ; really, really, really arcadey ; techno, ahh! so much techno

'Ridge Racer Unbounded' is indeed bounded by its arcade roots and unbounded by its embracing of the “create” world. Racing with an old flair, yet creating with a new one, Ridge Racer fans will find a lot to love here. “Unbound” isn't going to be...

Ridge Racer Unbounded


As my first ever console game, Namco's Ridge Racer will always be special to me. I'd been a PC gamer before I got my PlayStation, so I'd seen 3D graphics before, but here was a 3D racing game running on my TV; a game I'd had a chance to sample in a...

Ridge Racer Unbounded is a bold new direction for Namco Bandai's racing series, but also one that has successfully brought in new ideas to arcade racing. Its excellent track editor only adds to the enjoyment, and those looking for fun over simulation...
