Namco Bandai gets points for trying new things, but that’s just about all it gets points for in the newest Ridge Racer. - PSLS
Expected it. 5 cars and 3 tracks (or was it the other way?) is total BS. You can't microtransaction a title when you charge so much for it. Such a fail on the Ridge Racer series.
I'll just stick with Gran Turismo if it continues it's series on handhelds. Until then it's Uncharted, MvC, and Fifa on the Vita for me. Edit: @ Criminal I'm going check Sound Shapes out as well. I heard that a game called Shinobido 2 is pretty solid as well from neogaf. It's like Tenchu (made by the same guys).
agreed. this is the one time the perfunctory 'ouch' deserves an airing
I'm just satisfied with the fact that a site titled "Playstationlifestyle&quo t; is giving fair and honest reviews. It gives me more faith in what they have to say.
In this case. Namco have already seen the kind of views this might receive in the west and are (likely) going to feature more content to make the game much more "meaty" when it arrives in the US/EU.
Release a title that requires you to buy DLC to play a full game - but then don't have the DLC ready for months?
Namco doesn't handle DLC or bonus content very well. The special edition of Dark Souls was supposed to come with a physical guide and soundtrack, but Namco switched it out for online versions that didn't even work for half the people that downloaded them.
Wow! 2 out of 10. I guess I'll be getting Uncharted, Sound Shapes, and LBP.
Holy crap. Or more appropriately, "wholly crap," as in "entirely crap."
What's whole about this game??? ITS ONLY GOT 5 CARS!!!!!!! Lol
It's Rdg Rcr. . .they cut out the cars and tracks from their game, I'm cutting out vowels from their meme.
this is certainly no gran turismo 5. XD
I'm getting Hot Shots Golf 6, Gravity Rush, and Uncharted on launch day. Never crossed my mind getting ridge racer
Seems to me that the low rating wasn't due to actual gameplay but a gripe with the amount of content? Ill probably purchase this for no more than $15 tops. Anything more and namco can kiss it where the sun don't shine!
even $15 is too much.
I wasn't planning on getting this game anyway, but dang, that's horrible. I'm more into unrealistic racing games, like modnation, wipeout, mario kart, etc.
its sad, such a great looking launch title, but they had to get greedy...
I am flat out not buying this game (actually I wasn't going to anyway to be honest). Correct me if I'm wrong but 5 tracks and 3 cars is more like a demo.
i think there are demos with more content then that, how pathetic. Namco just wow, u ruin ace combat and now you do something like this...
As expected. When Bamco decided to westernized RR (looked at Unbounded as a Burnout wannabe), i'm sure that this series is already dead...along with Ace Combat. So RIP RR & Ace Combat T_T I hope they're not doing the same thing with Tales >.<
That small number of cars (even with some DLC) and a tiny stack of tracks? Why don't I just pick up... I don't know... the ORIGINAL Ridge Racer? More cars, tracks, depth... yeesh. That's a bit of a downhill slide.
I doubt it's as BAD as a 2/10 would normally imply, but I certainly won't be mad if people complain about the lack of content in the game. I honestly can't figure out what they were thinking by releasing a game with virtually nothing in it.
if they sell it for £1 then ill be interested lol, this sound like such a cash in, it must have been rushed to only include 5 cars!!!
Uncharted,Tales of Innocence R, FFX HD and Persona 4 GOLD for me :)
