Let's start out by making one thing very clear, this is definitely not your old Ridge racer. This game is completely fresh, and has no ties with the older Ridge racers. The cars handle well, but they are definitely not on a rail as before. You must learn to drift, this is crucial. Without this skill, you are going to be eating dirt often, so get used to using the little red button:) The graphics are pretty good, not the best I've seen, but very good nonetheless. There are tons of different ways you can race, and some of those are directly ripped off from other popular racing games. You get to crash into cars, via Burnout, you get to do some wacky obstacle races like Beatle adventure racing on the N64, and you can blow up buildings as well as other obstacles when your boost meter is full. Overall I would say that this game is definitely worth a rental, if not a purchase. I am already wondering if I should just use the keep it feature, since it's exactly the type of racing game I have been wanting.

I've never been a huge fan of Namco or the previous Ridge Racer series, but I am however a huge fan of the Flatout series. Truth be told, the only reason I tried this game was because Bugbear had a hand in its making. The driving mechanics were solid but rely too heavily on drifting. Nothing against drifting, I feel it has its place, I just dont believe that drifting around a corner is the fastest way around it. That being said it was a very fun, challenging game. I really liked the track editor. Making my own world was a blast. Of all the race modes the Frag Attack was my favorite. I will definitley play this one again. PS Bugbear if you're listening.....Please make another Flatout!!! Or something comparable.
