If you're into racing games in the slightest, I highly recommend Ridge Racer 3D. In the years to come, it will no doubt be bested by another racing game, but for the time being, it is a great launch game that offers fun gameplay and an awesome use of 3D.
The Video Game Critic
Ridge Racer 3D is exactly what I was expecting, but I'm not sure how I feel about that. It will give longtime fans deja-vu, but frankly it will be hard to come up with a better racer for the 3DS.
Ridge Racer Revolution in Verbindung mit dem NeGcon war damals für mich der Hauptgrund zum Kauf einer PlayStation! So weit würde ich beim jüngsten Vertreter nicht gehen: Obwohl Ridge Racer 3D neben Ghost Recon: Shadow Wars einen der besten Titel des Start-Lineups markiert, hat Namco Bandai für mich als Kenner der Serie zu stark den Recycling-Hammer geschwungen - einen Großteil der Strecken kenne ich bereits in- und auswendig, während mich der überwiegend lasche Soundtrack ebenfalls schon oft genug eingelullt hat. Am lässigen Fahr- und Driftspaß ändert das alles aber nichts: Es ist auch am 3DS ein Vergnügen, mit den Boliden über die bekannten, aber immer noch überwiegend gelungenen Pisten zu jagen und dabei eindrucksvoll durch die Kurven zu schlittern - das ist ein Arcade-Racer in Reinkultur!
The Telegraph
So you can't help but feel that Ridge Racer 3D will eventually be overtaken as the 3DS's premier driving game. But at launch, in the here and now, it's a satisfying celebration of Ridge Racer's breezy ubiquity at getting the best out of shiny, new hardware.
Console Obsession
Ridge Racer 3D plays a lot like other Ridge Racer games, but this is hardly something to complain about for any length of time, as Ridge Racer is up there with the most enjoyable of arcade-style racers, with plenty of speed and moments of satisfaction. The 3D is a nice, subtle effect, but if you’re looking for something entirely different, like some new tracks or major additions, then Ridge Racer 3D is not going to satisfy your appetite for new content or innovation.
Malgré le côté grisant de Ridge Racer 3D, son manque d'originalité dans ses modes de jeu le rend fatalement redondant sur le long terme. L'absence d'un mode Online pèse lourd dans la balance et les fans de la série n'auront pas vraiment l'impression de jouer à un nouvel épisode, même avec la 3D et le système Street Pass, pourtant intéressants.
Operation Sports
This game has a little bit of everything. The gameplay is solid, but it’s just a little too easy. The graphics are great, and the 3-D effect only makes it better. The game modes are there, but they just have no long-term appeal. But when it comes down to it, the game is still a racer, and it is still fun. So if you are into the original Ridge Racer games and newer titles like Need For Speed: Hot Pursuit, pick this one up -- even if only for the beautiful third dimension.
