4.0 out of 5 stars The spiritual successor to Burnout Revenge, 4 April 2012
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Ridge Racer Unbounded - Limited Edition (PS3) (Video Game)
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.

I've had the triple frag award, but that seems to be the third individual car you frag, not a 3-in-1?
