    Not the best game...and clearly needs some more work put into it. The graphics are blocky, collision scripts are mostly likely broken in some way, and the quality of the overall game is not high. Could be better like the 3DS successor

    Gameplay is rather poor with poor collision detection, bad turning mechanics, and poor AI. The Music is a decent mix of dance music from recent years

    Presentation is blocky and very disorganized, while the length is rather long...
    You won't find much to do afterwards though, maybe wireless multiplayer

    How can this game have a lower score than ridge racer 64. ITS THE SAME GAME. But this is handheld so why have it low on this list? Its a cool classic style ridge racer that the fans should play!

    The outcome: a lesson in how not to use the touch screen in games. You'll immediately feel like you're in a round of bumper cars as you automatically swerve from side to side. You literally have no control in this manner.
  2. A solid racing game that looks good and sounds fantastic while offering a real challenge!

    Some will scoff at the game's seemingly wacky control schemes and twitchy vehicle handling, but those who enjoy arcade racers will likely find something to enjoy here.
