5.0 out of 5 stars Brilliant arcade racer., 11 May 2010

= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ridge Racer 7 (PS3) (Video Game)
I am a simulation race fan first and foremost. But i do also appreciate arcade racer games, as long as they are good. This is an excellent game.. and because its been out for a while... it's almost as cheap as chips.

Arcade racers like Grid and NFS: Shift need only to look at this game to know what the essentials are for a top arcade race game. For a top arcade race game, you need to have some boost.. of which Grid never bothered to put in. I will never understand how Grid got such high reviews, whilst this game has had a fairly average reception. RR7 requires you to be skilled in drifting and tactically using the nitron (boost). The game gets more difficult as you progress.. and its simply not a question of trying to get the biggest amount of drift (nitron is dependant on how much drift you get on most nitron modes). It's about slipstreaming... its about not allowing other cars to gain on your slipstreaming whilst advancing on their slipstreaming instead. On many occasions towards the most difficult levels its a good idea to try to use the nitron boost at the very last corner if your close enough... and that's a very big IF.

This game is very tactical. It's about knowing the circuit to know which car is best suited, which modifications you need to use on that car to beat your opponent.e.g. which nitron option to use, which plug-in to use (whether it be more downforce or the slipstreaming boost plug-in etc etc), whether you need more grip, less grip... lessen the drift or gain on more drift etc. A lot of things to consider.

This game has suprising amount of depth and is great fun.
