Ridge Racer Unbounded (Xbox 360)

 

Ridge Racer Unbounded is, as its name suggests, Ridge Racer without limits. Your cars are no longer simple drifting machines, but tools of destruction, and the fictitious, urban tracks of Shatter Bay are your calamitous playground. Cars leap, streets...

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...

In recent years, the Ridge Racer series has persisted by being the only racing game for launching consoles. Once upon a time this was a valuable franchise that people paid attention to, but it has since become difficult to take new entries seriously....

The Ridge Racer franchise was in need of an update and I am happy that I can say that in the past tense. The series has really turned a corner, if you catch my drift. Ridge Racer Unbounded is not only the best Ridge Racer entry in years, but also just...

E3 jokes aside, the Ridge Racer series has always has its own special niche within the racing genre. It’s known for its unique and exciting drifting race mechanics, at least that’s what Ridge Racer used to be known for. It separated itself from the...

It's a good thing we don't remember pain, otherwise no woman would bear more than one child and the Jackass gang would stop letting people kick them in the junk. As much as I love combat-heavy racing games, I always forget about how painfully cheap...

From the explosive tankers to the destructible environments, Shatter Bay makes a great first impression. Franchise loyalists may be turned off by this brand new direction, but anybody who loves Burnout will have a blast playing through Ridge Racer...

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.

If any series was due for a retooling, it was definitely Ridge Racer. Don't get me wrong, when it was introduced on the Xbox 360 a few years back at Ridge Racer 6, I was excited at first. But then I noticed that the races weren't really changing much...

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

 

Here's how you know you're playing a Ridge Racer game: there's palm trees, sandy beaches, azure blue skies, a helicopter occasionally swooping down dangerously close to your car, there's a mental techno soundtrack and you can powerslide at impossible...

Bugbear has done a sound job exploring the dark side of the Ridge Racer franchise, with a slick arcade racer that could be the start of an interesting side avenue for the series to pursue in future sequels. Ridge Racer: Unbounded is a good, solid...
