Ação Games (Jan, 1996)
O visual está mais bonito e o desafio muito mais estimulante. O ponto fraco continua o mesmo: não há modo para dois jogadores.
There's no magic, it's just a cold kind of satisfaction - not red hot and essential as before. Of course I recommend this amazing game, wholeheartedly. Just remember there's an element of been there before attached.

Le digne successeur de Ridge Racer, à consommer sans modération...
Video Games (Mar, 1996)
Nun ja, die “Revolution“ ist ausgeblieben. Ridge Racer Revolution ist auch halt “nur“ Ridge Rac8r mit geänderten und damit anspruchsvolleren Strecken. Dazu noch die paar neuen Optionen und mehr Sounds, fertig ist die Gartenlaube. Das wichtigste neue Feature ist eindeutig der Rückspiegel. Damit habt Ihr endlich die Chance, den Schwarzen (und später auch den Weißen) in Time Trial so richtig auszubremsen. Was mir allerdings nicht paßt, ist die Tatsache, daß die Entwickler mehr Sprünge eingebaut haben. Im Gegensatz zu Euren Gegnern verliert Ihr zumeist die Kontrolle über das Fahrzeug und dengelt in die Begrenzung - das nervt. Trotzdem ist Ridge Racer Revolution die Herrausforderung für alle, die in Ridge Racer schon alle Rennen gewonnen haben, der Schwierigkeitsgrad liegt nämlich wirklich höher.
If you liked the first version, you'll truly love the sequel.
If you've bought this game and have never played it in LINKUP mode then you have wasted your cash. Whenever we all get together its the first game to go on the machine, we can get two machines to play from one copy of the game and Sony should be congratulated for this feature/bug in the game. The challenge to hold the lap record between my friends is INTENSE. Just when I thought that I had driven the perfect lap and got the best possible time, my brother goes and knocks over a second off it and its back to the drawing board again. I have definately had my moneys worth from this game in the linkup mode alone.
GamePro (US) (Apr, 1996)
The improvements may seem just cosmetic on the surface - a rear windshield and crisper graphics - but the cars' handling has been tweaked for the better. This results in cars that are easier to control and a more accurate feel to the track surface. If you liked the first version, you'll truly love the sequel.
Coming Soon Magazine (Aug 15, 1996)
Ridge Racer Revolution, the sequel to the original Ridge Racer, is a amalgamation of the two Namco arcade hits Ridge Racer II and Rave Racer. This second version delivers improved graphics, new courses, hidden features and more excitement!
Det är omöjligt att inte jämföra Ridge Racer Revolution med Sega Rally. De är ju konkurrenter, precis som Ridge Racor och Daytona var. Den stora skillnaden den här gången är att Namco faktiskt får känna sig besegrade. Medan Sega förbättrat både grafik och spelkänsla och dessutom gjort ett helt nytt spel håller Namco fast vid det som fungerade så bra för ett år sedan. Och trots att Ridge Racer var ett väldigt bra spel fungerar det inte. En ny bana, som visserligen är uppdelad i tre olika svårighetsgrader, och en backspegel är bra men inte tillräckligt. En uppföljare måste helt enkelt innehålla mer än så här. Speciellt när spel som Sega Rally finns.
Mega Fun (Mar, 1996)
Wahrlich, als Revolution würde ich den neuen Ridge Racer nicht gerade bezeichnen. Wer den Vorgänger kennt und ein brandneues Spiel erwartet, wird wohl enttäuscht. Scheinbar nahm man bei Namco das Original, liftete die Grafik und remixte die Techno-Tracks. All das macht sich auch durchaus positiv bemerkbar, doch die Rückspiegelidee allein macht noch kein neues Spiel. Neu hingegen ist die Link-Option, die Euch heiße Kopf-an-Kopf-Rennen ermöglicht. Mit Hilfe des Spiegels den Kontrahenten, der sich vorbeimogeln will, abzublocken, macht schon einen Heidenspaß. Doch dazu braucht man leider zwei Konsolen und zwei Bildschirme, und wer hat die schon? Meiner Meinung nach verstärken sich obendrein die Grafikfehler der Texturen, wenn auch nur recht schwach. Für die absoluten RR-Freaks jedoch kann die “Revolution“ trotzdem eine lohnenswerte Anschaffung sein.
Gamezilla (1996)
If you really liked the first one, you will love this game. I think it is one of the more intense racing games on the market. If there were only more tracks to select from, this game would be top-notch. The developers must have been thinking that the first one was successful with only three tracks, so why change? Unfortunately, that was my gripe with it as well. If you have not played the first one, you will definitely enjoy RRR. I just wish there were more changes from the original, instead of a cleaned-up version of the same game with new tracks. On the whole, though, this is a fun game that racing fans should enjoy.
An awesome racing experience. If only the first Ridge Racer wasn't almost equally as brilliant.
Retrogaming History (Feb 18, 2009)
Per Ridge Racer Revolution vale lo stesso discorso del predecessore. Sono infatti titoli figli di un tempo in cui il genere racing era concepibile solo attraverso un arcade sfrenato caratterizzato da un divertimento da consumarsi in fretta tipico delle sale giochi. A prima vista questo gioco risulta essere quasi solo un upgrade grafico del prequel ma in fondo è giusto così perché appunto contava solo intrattenere in una determinata maniera.
Namco succeeds in touching up gameplay and adds new music, plus remixes of the original tunes. The graphics differ a little bit from the original, but they certainly aren't better. Ridge Racer Revolution definitely has a lot more extras now and it lasts longer than the original. It still packs a lot of fun though, especially with the Mad Catz steering wheel and is a must purchase for racing fans.
Retro Archives (Apr 10, 2021)
Sur le papier et en dépit des grandes prétentions portées par son titre, Ridge Racer Revolution n'est vraiment pas grand chose de plus que Ridge Racer avec un nouveau circuit, d'ailleurs pas follement original, divisé en trois courses et trois modes de jeu redondants. Le contenu étant assez famélique, Namco aura fait le choix de gonfler la difficulté, en optant pour une conduite objectivement ratée où le moindre virage trop appuyé se finit en dérapage, et le moindre dérapage en dix secondes de contre-braquage chaotique sous peine de tête-à-queue. Si les joueurs assez patients pour maîtriser une jouabilité pour le moins extrême devraient finir par passer quelques bons moments, le résultat correspond plutôt à l'exact inverse de ce qu'on était venu chercher - à savoir sensiblement le même gameplay que celui du premier épisode mais avec plus de contenu et avec des environnements plus variés. Au final, rien de honteux, mais rien de franchement mémorable non plus.
GameSpot (Dec 01, 1996)
It's worth noting that the music tracks have been tweaked, and are really nothing more than remixes of the catchy tunes from original Ridge Racer. Still the announcer is exciting and comes with tons of attitude. But in the final analysis, a few new cars and flashy tracks hardly make this game worth the price of admission.
The Video Game Critic (Jul 15, 1999)
The graphics are the same quality, and the track design isn't much different either. Instead of incorporating a much-needed two-player split-screen mode, the game instead supports the "link cable" mode. I don't think I've ever met one person who has owned one of those things! Revolution is still a fun game, but it was certainly a disappointment to Ridge Racer fans who were expecting much more.
