4.0 out of 5 stars Ridge Racer is for experienced gamers., 8 Nov. 2007
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ridge Racer 7 (PS3) (Video Game)
Ridge Racer is for experienced gamers...
And because of this, alot of people are whining over the point its too 'unrealistic'. That 'drifting' is completely out of control. That Cars seem to overtake them all the time.

To be honest, its just because they're terrible gamers and don't understand athe concept of a good arcade game when they play one.

There is almost nothing wrong with Ridge Racer 7. The graphics is something people keep mentioning as beautiful, and yes they are, but thats not the only good thing. The Grand Prix mode will take you through hours of easy to eventual difficult challenges as long as you can play aracde racing games.

The important introduction is the modifying. Maybe this is something people aren't using. But you can customise most the 'machines' to your liking, drift control and nitros boost essentially. This is what helps people get better. Using this will make it easier a game for those that struggle. I didnt have to mod any of my machines till about half way through the game to be honest.

I think that perhaps one of the reasons people dont like ridge racer is the unrealism. And thats what Ridge Racer is all about: Crazy speeds, Bouncing off walls when you crash, drifting backwards at 200mph. Afterall they're not cars. They're 'machines'.

Only experienced gamers will understand this game in all its glory.
And those that arent, the game is afterall made easier by the modifying option.

Definitely one of the best on the PS3
