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 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.

I just picked this up on sale and I'm so glad I didn't listen to all the reviews that said this game was bad and gave it a thumbs down. I am having an absolute blast playing it ! It's a lot of fun and quite challenging if you try to get all the stars for each track. There are over 60 races to complete and you can create your own tracks as well. The Multi-player is shut down so don't buy it for online play.

I have played many Ridge Racer games in the past and I loved R4 back in the day. Some may complain that this doesn't feel like a Ridge Racer game and they would be somewhat right. It's Ridge Racer to the extreme. The Ridge Racer game series needed to evolve with new gameplay and this game does that. It still has the Ridge Racer "vibe" with all the powersliding you can handle while listening to techno style music. But, it adds in destructible environments with alternate routes you open up by smashing through walls and buildings on each course. It also has opponent take downs like we have seen in games like burnout.

All of this destruction adds to your power/turbo meter. You can keep the meter filled up by causing destruction to the other racers and the environment. Keeping your meter maxed as often as possible is essential to winning races because the AI is not easy to beat. They drive well, boost often and will even "frag" you when you are ahead of them. Even if you don't come in first you still get points so losing the race is not always a bad thing.

In additon to the main "domination" mode there are several other game modes to mix things up. There is a mode called "Shindo" that is a lot like recent RR games where you just get boost for powersliding and the envronment is less destructible. There's also drift attack, time attack and a "frag" mode where you try to destroy as many oponents as possible. All are fun in there own way and you can apply these modes to the tracks you create as well.

My biggest complaint with Ridge Racer unbounded is that there needs to be more options to change the graphics and control settings for the game. They are extremly limited and it's obvious this is a console port. The game still looks good but more settings for the PC version would have been appreciated. Other than that it's a solid arcade racer.

Overall, the game is just plain fun and that's what counts to me. I don't understand why people don't like it. Maybe they are struggling to win the races. Some races are very difficult and require multiple attempts to win. As with other racing games it takes some practice to get use to the handling of the cars. Also, there is a button for drifting and you should use it instead of the brakes to start your drift.

Maybe the people who don't like it expect it to be like the older Ridge Racer games but I'm actually glad it's different than the previous games. Why make a new Ridge Racer game if it's doesn't add anything different ? Also, I don't care that the MP is dead. I don't play MP on many games anyway. So if your looking for a fun, challenging, over the top, arcade racing experience give this game a try.

This game is not very good.
Multiplayer is over.
Graphics are not beautiful.
Destruction of cars and town is worst than others racing arcade games.
Driving is very ♥♥♥♥ed up.
Realism in the car is sadly ♥♥♥♥ed up too.
Only 3 mods of race.
I don't recommand at all.

A lackluster and uninspired game

Here’s the bad news, Unbounded is a mesh of many different concepts, a constant copy paste of various core mechanics from other games
My way of reasoning for this one, if the games that where blatantly copied are still better than this product, then there is other things you could be playing right now.


    Just like RR, it's an integral part of the game. The problem here, is that despite being an arcade racer, drifting is somewhat realistic, completely destroying whatever fun you could have with it.
    The way the steering works, combined with the light height of the car, makes for really floaty driving. It feels off.

    Lots and lots of meaningless destructibles, as you are given what is basically a tank in shape of a car, anything you see in the middle of the road can be destroyed, well almost everything.
    Sure, I won’t deny its fun, It’s the way its implemented that feels lazy and inconsistent
    For example, you win Nitro for hitting walls when drifting, which means you are being rewarded for being bad at it, but then you have random objects and even some destructible walls that don’t give you anything, except for a small amount of points, that only have purpose in Domination races and even then the quantity is so small it won’t even matter.
    Its unnecessarily confusing

    Still present is the boost for drafting, drifting and air time, and now by any form of physical contact with other cars
    Its then used too "frag" other cars or open hidden paths, and it’s a good way to win points as well, which you will need to unlock more races.
    From all of these, drafting is the worst way to gain boost, AI is significantly slower than you, making it so you only get a small amount before eventually leaving them behind
    Even though there’s more ways to win boost in this new RR, very rarely is it possible to stack boost after boost, since speed isn’t really encouraged in Unbounded.
    Boost is played more strategically, its not even related to speed anymore. Doesn’t seem like much but will lead to situations were slow moving cars can frag other vehicles or going at full speed to open an hidden path, only to have the boost run out on you, leaving you to crash against the wall.

    Domination races is where the game most shines, its were the game mechanics seem to work or even make sense.
    Where drifting and Frag Attack are just broken, even to the point of exploitation, unless the point was to drive really slow, in which case I wouldn’t even know what to say

    Classic RR songs that do not fit with the game at all, with Skrillex thrown in.
    It would feel more authentic with other artists, not sure why the stopped there or even came choose that particular artist, but it’s something, at least

    The track design is quite good and the environments although not busy, are aesthetically pleasing.

    Few more things you should know if you are pondering on buying this game
    .if you are an achievement hunter, beware that the MP no longer exists but those achievements have not been removed, and cannot be unlocked in a fair and non-shameful way
    .There is no video options aside from Anisotropic and i wouldn't recommend touching that unless you want the game to crash after each race
