RIDGE RACER IS HERE... UNBOUNDED

The latest title in the RIDGE RACER franchise, RIDGE RACER Unbounded gears up to carve its own destructive path with a new breed of arcade racing.

  • Race in urban environments - Shatter Bay lives by its own rules and is ripe for being torn apart by the overpowered vehicles rampaging through its many areas, including the commercial zone, refinery, port, and high-rise construction site.
  • New breed of racing machines - Traditional racing machines are out and dozens of badass street machines are in, including the legendary RIDGE RACER Angel and Devil cars.

 

The Ridge Racer: Unbounded Limited Edition will include three extra racing machines and five sizzling new Namco paint jobs. The three additional cars detailed below bring more wall-shattering variety and driving choice to the roster of cars already in the game:


The Ghoster: This low rider coupe with its electric blue finish isn't for cruisin' but for bruisin'

4.0 out of 5 stars The spiritual successor to Burnout Revenge 4 April 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Burnout Revenge on the PS2 was a FANTASTIC game, and sadly the PS3 version (Paradise) took a different, free-roaming direction and lost the main thing that made the Burnout games great, rather than good.

Ridge Racer this is not, but let's face it, the Ridge Racer recipe is now rather long in the tooth and the thought of racing made up cars and drifting perfectly around corners requires little in the way of skill.

Ridge Racer Unbounded - think of a marriage between Burnout Revenge and Split Second and you're pretty much there. There is also an easy to use track creator and tracks and events can then be globally uploaded (a la Little Big Planet) for others to use. Saying that, having this game as I do in it's first week of release, I have yet to find a single soul online!!! This is rather puzzling....

Anyway, the game is great, there's lots happening all at once and no sign of slowdown on the framerate. The cities and environments are well rendered and the minimalistic HUD takes some getting used to (no map) but it works.

My only criticisms of the game are that sometime a frag (RRU's name for a "takedown") involves you losing speed even though you cannot control your car during the replay. Speaking of (race) replays - there are none, which is a shame..... and the final thing is that you can only frag one car at a time, whereas the joy from getting double or triple takedowns in Burnout was immense.

Still, on the whole this is the best thing on the PS3 for "rage driving" since Burnout Revenge.

3.0 out of 5 stars Derivative, but fun 29 Jan. 2014
By Inspector Gadget VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I loathed the Ridge Racer series from the very beginning. To me they all represented the most basic "go forward and turn corners" nature of racing games, they were all so linear and plain. Recently I was so bored and desperate for a decent racing game that I took a chance on Ridge Racer Unbounded and was pleasantly surprised that it is a deviation from the formula and comes across as more of a cross between Burnout Paradise and Motorstorm Apocalypse.

Set in a fictional town called Shatter Bay it is your goal to dominate a series of challenges in different areas of the city. There is enough variety in scenery to keep the stages diverse although they are far from the happy blue skies of Burnout: Paradise or OutRun. There's a lot of downbeat coloring here but it's a minor complaint.

Within each race there are chances to cause mass destruction by boosting through buildings and watching the city around you collapse and disintegrate while shockwaves take out surrounding opponents. These moments are a lot of fun and reminded me a lot of Motorstorm: Apocalypse. The custom soundtrack makes the action even more exciting if you have the right tunes on your PS3.

I did find the actual game to be very, very hard and I could not even complete the first series of events. There are 51 trophies in total and I managed to earn 58% of them, but virtually ALL of them were from the user-generated content, which I found to be far more enjoyable and engaging than anything in the actual story mode.

5.0 out of 5 stars ONE HELL OF A GAME! 2 April 2012
By Hornet
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Please ignore the negative reviews posted here RRU is one hell of a joy ride! Although it greatly draws inluence from Split second, burnout and motorstorm apocalyse, it combines the game mechanics of the 3 mentioned games and blends it into something truly fantastic. The explosions, drifts and smashes. Its brilliant.
Oh and did I mention the soundtrack?, its trully amazing!

If you are into adrenaline pumping street racing action, then Ridge Racer unbounded is definately the game for you.

4.0 out of 5 stars Is this the sequel to Split/Second? 12 April 2012
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Forget comparisons with Need for Speed, (which IMHO has only a handful of excellent titles in the entire franchise), this is more like Split/Second with the difficulty cranked up a couple of notches. It is also more of a driving challenge than your average arcade style racers out there, which might put casual gamers off, but not those who like their racing fast and destructive.

As a member of the Unbounded, a bunch of reckless street racers, it is your job to reclaim the city district by district (that's about there all there is as regards story). Each one has a number of races of different types; pure racing, frag as many opponents as possible, drifting and time trials. You have to score points in a race to be able to unlock the next races, new cars and blocks you can use for designing and publishing your own tracks (yes, it has a track editor!). Only your highest score in each race is recorded and goes towards the total district point score. In addition, you have a reputation level which accumulates every time you race (haven't found out what this is for yet, but its probably some loose relation to the story).

Each race begins with a rolling start, no gears just pedal to metal. In pure race mode you have to finish in the top three to count as actually completing the race, which thanks to the AI is more difficult than it sounds. If you stay at the back for too long there's little chance you make it the front before the race ends. The flip-side is that there's no catch-up like in NFS, so if you get to the front of the pack and don't mess up you should be able to maintain your lead. The other race types are solo challenges against multiple opponents or against the clock, scoring points from the lengths of drifts or number of opponents you take out.
