if you have played any of the ridge racer series you have played this game. if you like the previous ones you will love this game. I do not, the control is just to loose. If you like your racing games less realistic and more like a video game by all means rent this game. It looks good its full of fictional cans with unrealistic handling, like every ridge racer before it. If you never player a ridge racer game before you might want to check it out, i loved the first ridge racer i played.

I tried my best to start this game with an open mind, despite hearing some bad things about the previous installments. During the first minute of game play my worst fears were realized, this might be the worst racing game I have ever played (although I'm sure the last six ridge racers were even more abysmal). The driving controls are outright silly, at no point was there even an iota of realism, which was very disappointing to me. I feel that a good racing game should have a balance of silliness and realism, although I generally prefer sim type racing games. This game was so far toward the silly side I could hardly take it. To top it all off, the graphics were really less than impressive. I suppose that If you are into drift racing this game might be for you. But otherwise I wouldn't recommend renting this one.
