From an arcade racing aspect, Ridge Racer Unbounded offers a decent amount of fun, but only after you have mastered drifting. Drifting takes some getting used to. Well, lets just say that it's a lot easier if you pick the right car. Not all cars are created equal drift-wise and trying to win with a poor drifting car is more difficult than it should be. The game does not leave room for mistakes; one crash and you are in last place--so don't even bother trying to finish.
There are many things about this game that I do not like: 1) The initial cars are not only slow, but they all have ♥♥♥♥ty acceleration and the AI cars will pass you like you are standing still. Not only that, but the AI cheats when they crash and will spawn in front of you at full speed. 2) All the cars look and sound the same. 3) The graphics have an annoying orange hue making it difficult to focus on the road. 4) There are only a handful of areas with multiple events, but each event pretty much uses the same racing map and there is very little variety. 5) Music is kind of hit and miss, some good, most bad.
With so many better arcade racers out there, this one is easy to skip.
