Un beau jeu, fun et bien conçu... Le plaisir de jouer est total, que dire de plus ?

A slick new "grand prix mode" allows you to unlock new cars and save your progress to cartridge. Ridge Racer was never known for its music, and the awful, whimsical, electronic ditties in this game are bound to get on your nerves. RR64 arrived awfully late in the system's life cycle, but if you're looking for fun racing action on your N64, it doesn't get much better than this.

Lets face it, there isn't much else for you to buy out there for your 64 right now. So you might as well put some cash together and grab this game. It's got a lot you'll like. I really do wish it had a random track generator. That feature would have catapulted this game to Goldeneye quality. It is however, the best arcade racer for the system, so that has to be worth something folks. Check it out.

If you're an arcade racing fan, you'd be an idiot not to run out right now and slap down the $50 for Ridge Racer 64. But if you're a simulation junkie expecting weeks and weeks of extended customization options and gameplay, this isn't the game you're looking for.

Ridge Racer 64 to gra wybitna i należy z pewnością do grona tych które potrafią pokazać na co stać konsole Nintendo 64. Szybkie samochody, sporo tras i piękna kobieta (szkoda że tylko w menu oraz intro :) to jest właśnie to co oferuje ta gra. Świetna oprawa graficzna i jeszcze lepsza dźwiękowa czynią z tej gry godnego kandydata do tytułu najlepszej gry wyścigowej na N64. Jeśli lubisz gry tego typu i dodatkowo jesteś wytrwałym graczem to z pewnością jest to gra dla ciebie.

Total! (Germany)
Ridge Racer 64 ist ein grafisch beeindruckendes Rennspiel, das vielen aufgrund des sehr einfachen, Arcade-lastigen Fahrverhaltens gefallen wird, ebenso viele aber auch genau aus diesem Grund abschrecken dürfte. So kommt es eher auf eine gute Reaktion und ein damit verbundenes rechtzeitiges Einlenken in die nächste Kurve als auf eine ausgefeilte Technik beim Anbremsen und -fahren der Kehren. Das allmähliche Gewinnen neuer Autos für die eigene Garage kann für einige Zeit motivieren, danach bleiben euch noch das Verbessern der Bestzeiten im Time-Trial-Modus und die Duelle gegen Freunde.

Clairement le jeu arcade par excellence sur le support, Ridge Racer reste fidèle à lui même et l'adaptation est convaincante. Reste ce réalisme exotique qui peut surprendre...

Ridge Racer 64 makes for a nice introduction to the series, and there's also definitely enough action here for those of you who have been playing Ridge Racer games since the PlayStation launched. With the new course, the numerous cars, and the great multiplayer action, Ridge Racer 64 has to be one of the best racing games ever to hit Nintendo's system.

Los van enkele minpuntjes, is Ridge Racer 64 een lekkere, goed ogende racer geworden en dat zal de N64-bezitters deugd doen.

Unlike the wonderful job they did with Bionic Commando on the GBC, the Nintendo Software Technology team only did a solid job with RR64. They captured some of the graphics, some of the physics, but barely any of the soul that the other Ridge Racer games have. The game is merely above average compared to the PSX versions, but it's still a rock-solid game that is sure to please many N64 owners.

Ridge Racer 64 är definitivt ett av de bättre, för att inte säga det absolut bästa bilspelet till Nintendo 64. Det försvarar också väl sin plats i Ridge Racer-serien även om det finns risk för att den som har kört in sig på R4: Ridge Racer Type 4 tycker att det är ett steg tillbaka (och ett steg åt sidan) lär man inte bli besviken. Hursomhelst har den här konsolen äntligen fått ett bilspel som är värt namnet. Och det var ju på tiden.

Remarquable de vitesse et de jouabilité, Ridge Racer 64 fait à la fois honneur à la série des jeux de course d'arcade de Namco et à la console de Nintendo, qui accueille là un jeu exceptionnel, susceptible de ravir tous les amateurs de pilotage extrême. Si le jeu n'offre que trop peu de circuits (les connaisseurs sont habitués à ce défaut récurrent des Ridge Racer), le plaisir d'y aller à fond est au rendez-vous, dans toute sa splendeur.

There's a lot of game here for racing fans (60 races in all), and best of all, it's fun and fast. The Z class races are mind-bending. It combines the best of previous Ridge Racers and adds more challenge and hidden goodies.

The Next Level
In conclusion, if you've been a longtime Ridge Racer fan, then this new installment will not disappoint. For those not familiar with the series but are looking for a frantic N64 racer, this is right up your alley. As a nod to the Ridge Racers of old, plus a little something extra added in, RR64 is a great racer, a great game, and one of the best N64 titles to date.

Ridge Racer 64 is a decent game for people who must have every Ridge Racer known to man, but last year's Ridge Racer Type 4 was much better. In the supersaturated world of N64 racing, RR64 barely manages to keep up.
