Ridge Racer: Burnout Edition
yeah its very burnout paradise reminiscent. But they've took it up a notch by introducing destruction, hopefully they'll be using the havok destruction engine as they are for inversion. Would look very impressive.
This isn't Ridge racer. The series did need a bit of a revamp i admit, but this is for many original ridge players including me- a bridge too far. It may be more exciting to some people but the ridge name isn't meant to go on generic looking arcade smash em ups. No thanks.
This doesn't look bad, but I'm not feeling a "hook". Bugbear is going to have to totally nail the core racing to get others and myself truly interested. Maybe they have some defining features that have yet to be announced.
This is going to cause an upset with the older players/fans. No doubt.
That looks like a Need for Speed logo
The cars... what's up with the cars? They're all samey-looking Not-Dodge Chargers. You're not going to see those all PRC or Team Dig-colored. I feel like they just did to the racing genre what the me-too companies have done to the FPS/TPS - painted it dull, drab colors, and pumped it full of steroids. But hey, it's an outsourced project, so hopefully Namco isn't completely forgetting that they had a nice franchise on their hands - if they would only innovate on their RR core gameplay ideas a bit more...
Ridge racer was always about speed. Eye watering, balls to the floor, blink and you'll miss the apex that you need to drift through. If they can nail the speed and drift then it's ridge racer. If they lose the drift then it's going to be the bastard child of Burnout and Need for Speed. Though the game it reminded me most of was Split/Second.
