    Apart from some dodgy found control methods I think could do with some slight refining, Ridge Racer Accelerated is the Ridge Racer we all know, now on iPhone and iPod touch. A must for original fans of the franchise, and with future updates to the title slated to be bringing up to 40+ more courses and 60+ more machines free of charge, Ridge Racer Accelerated could be set to make its own mark on the App Store crowd.

    Basically, it seems if you can get past the disappointing performance, long time Ridge Racer fans can still have fun with the drift-heavy racing style the game offers.

    But without good handling, a sensation of speed, and a lack of content, Ridge Racer Accelerated just doesn't come together.

    There is nothing technically wrong with the game, but there is very little we could call right, either. It's the epitome of average. As such, we can hardly recommend this to anyone when there are much better racing games on the market.

    A disappointing effort that manages to stall on nearly every count from lacklustre racing to limited content to technical issues preventing play.

    Anyone looking for a true Ridge Racer experience shouldn't find one here, and with such a lack of true content and more of a DLC extravaganza, Namco has managed to once again destroy a once beautiful franchise.

    It's basically a copy of the ridge racer from the psp. Since psp games are very cheep to buy you might aswell buy the psp version. There's not much point. Expand
