Rider’s Spirits review - Games Asylum

Games Asylum: "When browsing the Japanese libraries for consoles such as the Mega Drive and SNES, it’s clear why countless games remained in SEGA and Nintendo’s home turf. Things like romantic visual novels, horse racing-based gambling games, and sumo wrestling sims would have performed poorly commercially in Europe and the US.

Rider's Spirits (PS5) Review | VGChartz

VGChartz's Evan Norris: "Thanks to the programmers at Ratalaika, an obscure fourth-generation kart racer gets a second chance to prove itself. Rider's Spirits won't make anyone forget about Super Mario Kart, but it's deserving of a purchase, especially at the current $6 asking price. The driving is snappy and satisfying, the light simulation elements add a touch of strategy, and the Mode 7 experience goes a long way. A lack of backdrop variety is a bummer, as is the screen-hogging rear-view mirror, but the pros outnumber the cons in this spirited racing game."
