A game that is mostly fun in multiplayer has no multiplayer as the developer program it so that only official server can provide multiplayer and that server is down. No other alternative, no LAN option, nothing. Dont support Bugbear and dont support Namco, they are the worst companies.

There should be a website like metacritc except for companies, where such filthy bussiness practices would be exposed to mass view so that people would not buy their products

The racing is okay but not great. The fact that the developer abandoned it, removing multiplayer, means I have to recommend against buying it.

A really stupid but amusing game. Multiplayer is dead.
Not an essential purchase by any means, but i can't say i haven't enjoyed it.
Warning; contains Skrillex.

This is what happens when you let filthy gaijins make a Ridge Racer.

Do you like Burnout? Enjoy the destruction of Split Second? Then this game is for you!

If your expecting classic Ridge Racer then look else where.

This game should have been its own franchise but it`s not, it has the Ridge Racer title, RR style cars and music but that is where similarities end. Do I care? Hell no! This game puts Michael Bay to shame with its crashes and destruction. I loved it on PS3, and I love it on PC.

The sad truth though is that there is no online, the servers were shut down some time ago and Namco opted not to modify the game to allow peer to peer connection, or even stop the game attempting to connect to none existent servers on launch. But this does not stop the game being fun, so if you see it in the sale buy it and have a smashing time!

One last thing to note, for achievement collectors sadly you will not get all achievements for this game as there are a couple that are awarded for online play, no online play = missing achievements :(
