    Wähl dir einen Wagen. Wähl dir einen Kurs. Und sei voll konzentriert, denn jetzt bretterst du durch Tunnels, am Strand lang, Pässe hoch, Pässe runter, durch die Stadt, an der Konkurrenz und am Publikum vorbei durchs Ziel. Oder gegen die erste Leitplanke ...

    Hey!
    Wenn dir Ridge Racer Revolution zu schnell ist, dann spiel doch hiermit!

    Ridge Racer is a direct port of the arcade game that features a variety of cars and high-speed racing through beautiful scenery and long tracks. Once you finish the normal courses, more challenging stages will open up. This game launched with the PlayStation and showed that the system was more than capable of producing great 3D graphics with fast frame rates.

    Scorch around city streets in a turbo-charged speed-test that perfectly recreates the cutting edge arcade game. Incredible realism matched with intense speed will leave you totally wired.

    Fun, fast, frantic and furious, you can't go too far in describing the mind-blowing original Racer game. The former arcade smash hit comes to PlayStation in a big way, you'd better hold on!

    With a choice of top cars and challenging tracks there's enough in Ridge Racer to keep the most demanding of gamers entertained for hours.
