best racing series' iphone incarnation lives up to it's name
graphically things aren't quite current gen with this title. generally low poly counts everywhere and some low res textures, along with sorely lacking head/tail light effects. so why do i still give it 5 stars? cause it's mother****ing ridge racer. that's why. the graphics that do exist are well executed with an extremely long draw distance, solid framerate, and excellent visibility. this also (thankfully) is not just another gimmicky wannabe racer that moves for you while you tilt the screen back and forth and pretend you're playing a video game. this is the real deal. full fledged ridge racer with actual screen-mapped touch controls for everything from gas to steering that are perfectly implemented and thankfully leave the default tilt-screen controls in the dust. as it should be. this is a real handheld racing game with a control scheme. not another lame iphone "omg gyroscopes!!!1" tech demo disguised as a racing game.
everything bleeds pure ridge racer style from the menus and interface to the flawless-yet-challenging gameplay and controls to the outstanding sound effects and music. if you're a fan of the RR series or just bored of all the "tilt and pretend you're driving" games on the market, do yourself a favor and get this. the game and all it's DLC are worth every penny. ridge racer ftw!
No career mode!
My first foray into modern video gaming occurred in 1996. My buddy had a Playstation and RR was my first game to play on it. I was blown away. RR has always been my personal benchmark for racing games and general game systems, overall. Bottom line for the iPhone? Disappointed.
The graphics/sounds are really nice and that's about it. The provided tracks range throughout the RR years, which is cool.
There is no career mode, which I don't get at all. I'm surprised that RR webt the way of the 4th title, with a RPG like story mode. There is no real reason to keep playing after 20 minutes. It reminds me of the Atari days of skill, but this is no longer the 80s and a lit has changed since Pac Man.
And, the controls do not translate well on a smooth glass surface. All RR fans need the tactile feel to properly drift and this game is all about drifting. I find myself running into walls because I don't hit the proper directional button.
It's also sad that you are milked for more cases and cars, too. Lastly, they could throw in the Pac Man/Galaga at the start, like the previous titles?
I've played this game on the PSP and that was one of the most exciting RR experiences and it's too bad this portable experience falls short.
I hate to say it, but I'd pass and look at other racing titles until they overhaul this game.
Turn on Engines Ridge Racer is right in your pocket
The game is great i like the ridge racer series and i played the ridge racer type 4 on psx and now i got that right in my pocket what better i can get, the game graphics is impressive and the sound will Rock you all the game, the game also have a retro car and BGM from the ridge racer type 4 the drifting is fantastic its hard for the beginners but it needs a little practice, when i played it too many memories have flowed in my mind, i played too many racing games like asphalt and other games but ridge racer is different its UNIQUE and the BEST of all, and those who are negatively about the in app purchases whats the problem in paying 5 extra dollars and considering it as FUND development for the game in total it would be 12 dollars Where could you find a RIDGE RACER GAME with this Price!! i mean no offense to anybody but i m saying look to the brighter side, I WISH THAT NAMCO RELEASE AN UPDATE THAT ALLOW YOU TO PLAY MULTIPLAYER ONLINE VIA GAME CENTER, Buy this game now and you won't regret, if i could give it 6 STARS I would do, at last thanx to NAMCO for every game in the series and looking up for more releases for the IOS.
