Ridge Racers 2 features courses from Ridge Racer, Ridge Racer Revolution, Rave Racer, Rage Racer, Ridge Racer Type 4, and Ridge Racer V, in addition to original and arranged BGM tracks from all of these games. Nitrous boosts have been added. There's also a large number of cars to earn, plus a Rally-X minigame. The problem here is that all of these features were already available in the first Ridge Racers. Ridge Racers 2 doesn't feel like a sequel, but rather, an upgrade to the original title, only offering a small number of new features and some more courses.
