GamingUnion: "Ridge Racer has been a pretty big franchise for Namco Bandai, with it appearing on a multitude of consoles since its debut on the PlayStation One. But with so many iterations out there, the formula has become quite stale; the recent handheld versions did little to champion Ridge Racer's cause. It's for that reason that Namco Bandai decided to broaden the net. They enlisted a new developer, Bugbear Entertainment and tasked them with taking the franchise in a new direction. The result, is Ridge Racer: Unbounded."
