A new paint job can't return Ridge to its glory days...

Ridge Racer and developers Bugbear are a perfect match. They're both behind a tradition of racers that don't quite hit their mark. Bugbear's FlatOut chipped a glass ceiling that Burnout 3 was busy smashing to bits, and Ridge Racer is a much-loved series that, arguably, now belongs to a different time.... read more

CVG rated this higher than motorstorm RC, so by that logic, this game will be fantastic.

seriously, this site is all but redundant now, a shame. WTF happened?!

Edge gave it a 9 and give or take a point I usually agree with their scores... and CVG did give Resi 5 and Final Fantasy 13 a 9 (Pffft). Any news on a demo for this?

Clearly namco didn't offer enough to CVG unlike Sqeenix and Capcom :)

Quick question CVG if you're reading. You have a moan about the track editor being basic but did you try the advanced mode? It looks quite in depth especially in some of the videos I've seen.

Why do I get the feeling that the reviewer only spent 30 minutes on the game? Certainly read like he didn't play the game much.

Good call! Despite Grid being brilliant and varied Codies seem to have put the series on ice.
I spend all my money on Games and Consoles. Any left over I just waste.

"especially with the game's reliance on elastic-banding"

That is the one thing I hate more than anything else in racing games, so this will be a pass for me. I'll wait for Dirt showdown thanks very much :D

with reviews varying so much, do reviews really matter when they are over 6/10... Surely its just down to personal taste if you like those sorts of games.

Edge giving it a 9 and you guys giving it a 6, odd.

They what?!? Motorstorm RC was bloody mint! One of the best games to hit PSN in ages!

*checks review*

Woah. Totally missed the point of that game. I can see that actually it's the same reviewer. I think he really isn't into racing games. Most of them he's reviewed have got poor ratings. Only one man's opinion though...
