Much like Ace Combat, I've bought just about every incarnation of the series and it's proven to be a staple of the last three generations of console launches. Maybe in an attempt to get this one out by Christmas, Namco decided they would deliver only half the game, and the half they left out was the part with the legendary Ridge Racer controls."
