Description official descriptions

As with other titles in the Ridge Racer series, this is arcade racing action, discarding reality in favor of fantasy thrills. There are 14 tracks and 18 cars. You can play a full 'Grand Prix' type season, or play individual tracks against the clock, an opponent or a ghost car. Lighting and reflection effects are built in to the game engine, as is the ability to modify your car's paint job. Replays can be viewed from any angle. A full musical score is on offer

Decent racing game

The Good
I like this game because it was one of the first good racing games for the PS2. The graphics are constructed better than most games. The cars are, well, cars. Nothing to specific but they do look good.

The Bad
Flinches Eesh, where to start. The racing system AI is kind of retarded at the higher difficulty levels. If you have even heard of Gran Turismo 3 then go out and get that instead. There are so many more things that make it a much better game than this. The only things that can be modified or changed in this game is the engine. Yes, all two of them.

The Bottom Line
A fairly decent racing game that looks better than it plays. Go get GT3.
