Ridge Racer (PSP)

 

Namco and Sony are now officially three for three when it comes to launching a new piece of Sony game hardware with a new game from Namco's Ridge Racer series. And like those previous Ridge Racer efforts, the first PSP installment in the series does a...

There is no doubting that the Playstation Portable hardware is quite impressive. The sleek slimline unit can certainly pack quite a punch in variety of different functions that the system offers, with one of the most notable features being the systems...

Halo. Metal Gear Solid 2. Soul Calibur. Super Mario 64. While many in the videogame industry cringe at the terms “killer app” and “system seller”, there's no denying that most successful videogame systems hit the ground running largely in thanks to a...

The best graphics on the PSP, bar-none ; Gameplay that goes back to what made the series great... and then makes it better ; Tons of content ; Reiko Nagase is back

No custom soundtrack ; Lack of anti-aliasing is one cloud in an otherwise clear sky

There are two games every PSP owner must have: Lumines and Ridge Racer. And if you want the game with the best graphics on the PSP, then trust me: you want Ridge Racer.

Handheld systems see their fair share of ports, compilations, and remakes. The Gameboy Advance is notorious for this, with almost every single Nintendo franchise classic appearing on the system, multiple times for some (see Metroid Zero Mission, the...

Overall, though, Ridge Racer really is a top-notch package for fans of racing and the classic arcade series. Ridge Racer's fast, addictive gameplay, large soundtrack, beautiful and numerous tracks, and drool-inducing graphics will keep many PSP-ers...

Outside of the Mario Kart series, I've never really liked racing games. Even Nintendo's "other" racing franchise, F-Zero, never really stuck with me (outside of their cool, mobile F-Zero AX arcade game). I've even played the PSP's other racing launch...

Don't let either of these shortcomings stop you from what amounts to an absolutely awesome game, however. If you're the proud father or mother of a new, baby PSP and in need of a game for your new system that is both incredibly fun and deep and is also...

Ridge Racer - PSP review at Thunderbolt Games

 

Man, Ridge Racer looks freaking amazing…

Expert review by:

Ridge Racer

 

Because the launch of a Sony system without Ridge Racer isn't a launch at all.

Not much of a difference exists between the import and domestic versions of Ridge Racer. Gone are the clever puns that described each tour of the import - Mad Drift Disease is now Drift Mania, Block Rockin' Drifts reduced to Rock'N'Drift. To...

Ridge Racer review for the PSP

 

A fine day for a drive.

Fun and accessible; Good graphics; Lots of unlockables

Little depth; No online multiplayer

Like the previous installments, Ridge Racer for the PSP is another solid launch title. It will never have the depth of a Gran Turismo, but then again, it's not supposed to. 400 horsepower of arcade style fun isn't a bad way to ring in your new PSP.

Ridge Racer Review

 

is here for Sony's PSP! How does it compare?

Throw in some terrific Wi-Fi support, where up to eight players can challenge each other in a race, and plenty of new cars and tracks to discover, and you'll have something to play until you get the chance to drive the real thing.

Ridge Racer Sony PSP Review

 

As far as sound, I admit that the music selections could be a little more stylish, but they still somewhat work here, pumping energy into each race. The sound effects are terrific, blazing along in each race with the roar of the engines and the...

The best

Not much at all

It seems that every time that Sony has introduced some kind of game hardware onto the market, Namco's been right there with some kind of impressive feat lifted from their Ridge Racer line-up. In 1995, when the PlayStation debuted, Namco brought forth...

Product Specifications

Tunes on. Nitrous on. Game on. Ridge Racer gamers were drifting across the asphalt long before drift racing became a phenomenon. Now the game that revolutionized arcade racing over 10 years ago blazes a trail to the PSP handheld entertainment system, featuring stunning 3D graphics, smooth analog control, all-new gameplay modes and wireless multiplayer racing.
