The title of this game is probably badly chosen because this has nothing to do with any previous Ridge Racer games.
This is an arcade style racer with an accent on destruction and explosions.
Im not a big fan of racers and not a fan of destruction racers at all, but for some reason i liked this game.
The graphics have a style that only Namco could achieve, really classy as you can expect from any Namco game.
The gameplay is actually fun and after the initial frustration and "wtf" moments, the game grew on me.
Id say its my fave racing game in my library...but keep in mind im not a racing fan...at all.

The game is unfair and has some not so well designed parts but despite all this, its fun to play over and over.

I bought this a while ago when it was heavily discounted at $10 and never regretted.
Now its full price is $10 and its discounted at roughly $3-4, more than worth it even if for the style alone.

I have never played Burnout, a lot of others seem to say this is similar....

Honestly I do enjoy this game, the music is pacey, the gameplay is easy to grasp. It is slightly repetitive but worth a few pounds. It is a bit like Paradise City in a way due to its destruction stages, but without an open world (boo...).

I have stopped playing because the drifting stages are god-awful or I am just very bad at them.

I did buy the dlc at them time as it was mega a cheap, cars arnt great, but the RR Type 4 pack brings back some great times with the RT Solvalu. But, it no doubt comes as no surprise to hear that it sucks in game.

Imagine if Burnout had terrible drifting, awful music, no Takedowns, and a bad 'boost' system. You'd have Ridge Racer Unbounded. You're better than this, Bugbear.

Ridge Racer: Unbounded was, to me, a very fun, yet repetitive racing experience.

(Be prepared to read a VERY descriptive review. TL;DR is at the bottom.)

The game's introduction is very simple, and explains to the player how Shatter Bay came to be, only to turn into a urban playground for the Unbounded. As a beginner, the player is convinced by the hashiriya master to join the Unbounded, and seeks higher recognition by moving up the ranks.

Now, if you've played any of the Ridge Racer titles preceding this one, you'll find that this particular title mostly leaves any traditional aspect of the older games in the dust. However, do note that Unbounded was produced alongside major game developer Bugbear Entertainment, the same folks behind the Flatout series and, most recently, Next Car Game: Wreckfest. Bugbear's role in developing Unbounded was one of the major factors in producing this game.

The single-player mode is very simple. The player has to race through the districts within Shatter Bay and dominate every one of them. These districts very in location and theme, from the lower parts to the docks to even the city center. Now, each district has a set of challenges that get tougher and tougher as the player moves from district to district. These events are filtered out into specific types, from the standard Domination Race to my personal favorite, Drift Attack. Unbounded also adds a ranking system to game, where you unlock more & more features by gaining EXP and moving yourself up higher on the list. Now, from my playthrough of Unbounded, I found that these challenges often felt a little repetitive, considering that they all take place within their respective districts and can only offer so much in terms of visuals.

Gameplay is where Bugbear's changes come into light. The physics system is completely different compared to traditional Ridge Racer titles, with drifting through corners feeling more realistic instead of the old-fashioned "go through a turn drifting at 300 km/h" approach. However, from my playthough experience, the physics of Unbounded are easy to adjust to, with a slight learning curve. There's new gameplay mechanics implemented into Unbounded, the most notable being Frags and Targets. Frags are the Unbounded equivalent of Burnout's Takedowns, where you can smash into another opponent in order to temporarily render them out of play. An awards system is also present, which gives awards to objectives you achieve as you're racing, such as hitting a particular Target or getting multiple Frags. Targets, however, pretty much lead me to my next point.

The game now introduces a destructive environment, where almost everything can be smashed into. DICE ain't got anything on the amount of buildings and coffee shops you'll be smashing through, as the amount of destruction the player will be causing to the city can put a smile on his/her face. And yes, there's explosions too.
Small explosions.
Big explosions.
Michael Bay-approved explosions.

Aside from the carnage, there's a game mode that I'd like to recall: Shindo racing. This is pretty much the standard racing game mode, where there's no frags and no driving into buildings. Instead, you race against other Shindo class opponents around the city, with the winner being the first across the line. The game also features Time Attack, where you race against the clock in order to beat the timer.

One of the game's bigger selling points is the track editor. This allows users to build up their own personal cities for other players to violently smash through. Track pieces are unlocked as the player progresses through the single-player and multi-player. However, I found that making a city isn't exactly the best time-investing thing to do, but the option will be there should I choose to do so.

This game often goes on sale, and when it does, it's very cheap. I picked up Unbounded with all the DLCs for less than $4 during the Steam Winter Sale of 2014. The game made up the $3.74 I paid for it quite well, providing a solid single-player experience with the added addition of multiplayer (which, admittedly, I haven't gotten to yet).

TL;DR: Ridge Racer Unbounded is a game that I'd recommend as a means of trying new things. The revamped gameplay plus the added ability to create your own personal city to tear through offers a very entertaining experience for the racer fanatic. The single-player is a pretty decent experience, but it allows you to understand how the game works, so that you can begin dominating other players online.

Ridge Racer Unbounded is completely unrelated to the original Ridge Racer arcade games. It managed to introduce a lot of new concepts, such as course construction set (with progressive unlock of building blocks), group racing, lots of cars, multiple modes, destructible scenes, and so on. However, with the shut down of the matchmaking servers in early 2015, buggy game (crash to desktop after several races), and odd handling (there is no tutorial on how drift works in this game) means the game, even at bargain basement prices, is not exactly a good investment.

As a new racer joining the scene in Shatter Bay, your task is to "take over" multiple neighborhoods by doing well or very well in the various races. Each neighborhood has about 7 races. Winning the races (or at least, get into top 3) will unlock higher races, while accumulating score will increase your rank and gain you access to better cars.

There are multiple race modes, but most races will be "domination race", where you race up to 11 other cars. Do the special moves like getting air, hit top speed, or drifting, will gain you boost. Once you fill the boost gauge, you can engage boost which allows you to smash through certain "targets", yielding shortcuts that gain you more boost (usually involve getting some big air) but since boost has limited duration, you have to time its use carefully. Smashing other cars will cause them to respawn, albeit several seconds behind.

So what's the problem? Very weird drifting mechanism. Some guides advocate holding down the handbrake button during the turn, others insist on releasing the handbrake as soon as drift had started. The problem is there is no "test track" for you to practice. It's always race, race, race.

The graphics are quite good, and as this is a Bugbear product (makers of Flatout series) the game has decent handling... except for the weird drifting. Sound is... okay, with a lot of decent soundtracks, again, just like Bugbear games like Flatout.

You were able to build your own race courses and as you conquer neighborhoods and raise your driver level you will unlock additional blocks to build the courses. However, with death of the matchmaking servers the courses are of little use now, as much of the fun is race others in MP games. In fact, the game is stuck for about a minute checking for nonexisting server when it starts up.

All in all, Ridge Racer Unbounded tried to do too much and lack of tutorial / test track made the game unenjoyable, and the shutdown of matchmaking server is the nail in the coffin. It's fast, it's furious, but it left an empty feeling.

I've been a Ridge Racer fan from the beginning. I purchased a day 1 Playstation together with a copy of Ridge Racer and put countless hours in that game. Winning from the "devil car" as the final achievement was wonderfull. Even though the game had only 1.5 track(s) did not matter, because the layout of the track was simply perfect. Than came Ridge Racer revolution (ridge Racer evolution was a better name) and again I played that game countless hours. Getting the "devil car" and "angel car" took a big effort, but the game simply played as the perfect arcade racer.

Than Namco released Rage Racer and the series slowely started to loose it charm but still it felt like a Ridge Racer game. Ridge Racer Type 4, released after Rage Racer, included a remake of Ridge Racer 1, now with slightly better graphics, and 60fps.
Ridge Racer 5 for the Playstation 2, which included a remake of the orginal track, was the last game I bought in the Ridge Racer series, until this piece of ♥♥♥♥. Don't let the name fool you, this is NOT a Ridge Racer game. It doesn't play as a Ridge Racer game and it doesn't look like a Ridge Racer game. This is Flatout abusing the name of Ridge Racer. If you enjoyed Ridge Racer, than stay the hell away from this game.

I think I will hook up my old PS1 to play some proper Ridge Racer now.

I don't know what this game is supposed to be.
As a racing game it is unexciting, and as a destruction game it doesn't have enough explosions.
There aren't enough cars, at least not enough choice early on. Colours are limited.
Winning is difficult.
It is a drifting game.

Burnout and Trackmania rip-off with the Ridge Racer name slapped on it.

Drifting shares physics with melting mozzarella

Excellent arcadey racer right here!
The game is focused on five (give or take) different modes, with domination being the main one. You collect points on each race to unlock more races, coming first sometimes doesn’t' guarantee unlocking later races (especially in the later game) so the game forces you to race aggressively which in my opinion makes the game really fun. Also the mechanics of the boost are really well made and add a layer of strategy.
The game also has a track maker with a lot of additional player made content already available that you can enjoy once the main cities are finished.
Overall I really don't understand how come this game isn't more popular, I got this on sale after I played the demo and I can easily say it's well worth the full price!

If you like Ridge Racer and wanted something that has:

  • A Skrillex soundtrack
  • No connections to previous RR branded cars
  • Your favourite colour is neon orange and black and nothing else.
  • Lens Flare EVERYWHERE!!!
  • Two of the three DLC cars that was brought in from the prevous installments, (Type 4 Machine + 1 Machine) getting hammered by other cars even though they are the most decent looking.
  • EXPLOSIONS!
  • Flatout Crashes + the glorius Michael Bay slow motion camera.
  • Pretty much nothing to do with Ridge Racer cept the drifting and the boost (which I also hate).
Go get this.

Otherwise don't. Even the damned Grid 2 can pull something better than this.

Great game. It reminds me of all the crazy racing games I played when growing up. I would just drive in the wrong direction and crash into everyone rather than try to win anything! It's focused more on action than simulation which is perfect for me. If you just want some fast paced action then give it a try. But be warned it takes some time to master. The racing relies more on your ability to create shortcuts by plowing through certain obstables and blowing up your opponents rathern than pure racing skill. The best way to get power points for a boost is to learn how to drift properly and destroying objects. It's the only ridge racer game I've ever played so I cant comment on whether not it lives up to its predecessors.

Sadly, this game is just another example of how Bandai Namco can ruin a game with a lot of potential. You can feel the Bugbear influence with the action packed racing, and in some ways, it feels like you are playing Split/Second-lite. If you like arcade racing and can buy the game at a deep discount, I recommend picking it up. However, the online servers have been turned off, which means you will never be able to get 100% of the achievments, if that matters to you. Also, the graphics options are very limited with no brightness adjuster. That sucks because the game is dark.

Then there is the DLC, which is still full price. Can't have a Namco game without lots of DLC.

Get this game on sale, it's amazingly fun, highly optimized, quite replayable (if your memory for tracks is as bad as mine), rich lustrous graphics on PC, upbeat music, overall this game seems seriously underappreciated. This is one of the better games out there, wish there were some multiplayer folks willing to give this a try but everyone loves Wreckfest NCG these days (which admittedly has far more realistic driving and physics). But this is fun too! Especially if you don't have a G27 wheel yet. I guess I'll try and find some other players who like it as much as I do.

Pros:
- Great sense of speed, as long as you don't run into anything "non-destructible" in the environment, so it pays to learn the course.
- Polished graphics, widescreen support via "Flawless Widescreen" thanks to HaYDeN, super fun with three monitors. The nVidia 3D surround works somewhat, it's much better than EA's pathetic "Need For Speed: Most Wanted" but of course nowhere near as good as it is in real simulation games like Assetto Corsa, Dirt or even Euro Truck Simulator (!).
- Tons of cars to unlock, althoughthey all seem to handle very similarly, the only thing that matters seems to be speed and acceleration.
- The AI seems to be very "rubber band" algorighm based, with somewhat suicidal tendencies (this could be good or bad, But overall the randomness aspect of it all keeps it fun, it's a bit like baseball -- 2/3 of the time nothing interesting happens, but when you get it right, it's a home run.
- Lots of destruction, which is rewarded, so keep a lookout for those targets and try to have your boost ready to go when you hit them. Hitting them without boost feels pretty silly, errp!
- Great singleplayer, lots of crazy tracks, frag challenges with a truck, quite a lot of fun trying to hit all the destructible stuff.
- Community-generated maps can be downloaded too, and there's a map editor.
- Great multiplayer races (if there were any players).

Cons:
- Upbeat music, easy to switch tracks. There's scanner radio chatter or in-game commentary so it feels a bit isolated from real life compared to Burnout or NFS where the audio is somewhat better and makes the game more immersive.
- Doesn't seem to be any car customization, except maybe the colour of the paintjob (similar to "NFS: Most Wanted").
- The initial logon to the server takes quite a long time, and doesn't seem to be bypassable if you only want a quick singleplayer game.
- Weird controls, but seems possible to get them to work eventually. Not sure if this game even supports the Logitech G27 wheel, I need to try. At the moment, I've only played it using "Better DS3" and a Sony DualShock3 (with a piece of elastic to hold the throttle/trigger down, otherwise my hand got tired accelerating all the time!).
- It's kinda strange that bugbear hasn't provided any patch to fix the occasional crash when quitting the game, as they're normally amazingly careful about their code, you can see their thoughtful work on Wreckfest NCG.

Overall, it's well worth it, especially if you get it in a Steam sale. Would be worth every penny if you can get a few friends together and play the hell out of it without any of those loony AI doing weird stuff.

Un joc bun, destul de captivant. E in genul lui Split/Second & Bournot Paradise. Gameplay destul de bun, grafica de asemenea si ea excelenta. Daca v-au placut Split/Second si Burnout Paradise atunci o sa va placa si Ridge Racer. Merita incercat, aveti si varianta gratuita Ridge Racer Driftopia, este acelasi joc doar ca o alta versiune sau imprumutati de pe un tracker jocul si il testati. Dupa parerea mea jocul isi merita bani, asa ca nu mai stati pe ganduri... Incercati-l & have fun !
