    There is so much hate about this game. I play it with an xBox 360 wireless controller and having a great fun, don't know how about youThere is so much hate about this game. I play it with an xBox 360 wireless controller and having a great fun, don't know how about you keyboard users.. It's a perfect time killer and i didn't mind to spend 12 euros on 10 additional garage slots and a 24 hours score booster pack and i it's pretty much all i needed. Some tracks are challenging as much as some "stupid" opponents ghosts :P and i crashed a decent amount of times but something keeps me on trying again and change my strategy, until i succeed..

    I gave it a 10 because it's still in Beta but it's pretty good.. looking for new content from the devs! :D

    Basically this is a money grab version of unbound. The tracts are just copys of the unbound ones. The cars get wrecked far easier than unboundBasically this is a money grab version of unbound. The tracts are just copys of the unbound ones. The cars get wrecked far easier than unbound and cost you tokens(repiars) each time to repair(if you choose not to repair the car you lose it permentaly and you have decide soon it is wrecked) and the higher the cars level the more tokens it cost. You seem to have to buy tokens if you run out and you also have to buy garage slots to store the cars you win past 3. You do win tokens but with how easy the cars wreck it can be very easy to run out. Also it seems if you play the same race track to farm tokens/xp they toss in a high level car that gets a head start making it hard to get 1st place. Over all the game can have promise but is no where near ready for any kind of release and the pay part needs to be scaled back. Expand

    The actual game is good that's the 3 points it gets. But it is not free 2 play its pay 2 play. If you crash (and you crash randomly easyThe actual game is good that's the 3 points it gets. But it is not free 2 play its pay 2 play. If you crash (and you crash randomly easy sometimes) you use up tokens which are acquired with money. So technically its not free to play its only free to start. I would not mind if its is pay 2 win but its much more worse than that. If you can actually play the game for free (as they say it is) I will re-review it. Expand

    Think of a pile of poop. That is what Ridge Racer Driftopia is. The developers took Unbounded and gave it a horrible micro transaction system.Think of a pile of poop. That is what Ridge Racer Driftopia is. The developers took Unbounded and gave it a horrible micro transaction system. You crashed too easily. The cars handle like they have 10 tons of Vaseline on them and the garage system is to simply to milk their customers. Good thing they're shutting down this piece of crap. Expand

    I realize that this is an early access game. There is nothing worse than in game purchases that are charged to your real world credit card.I realize that this is an early access game. There is nothing worse than in game purchases that are charged to your real world credit card. LAME. As soon as I realized that there were real fees for purchases in game I immediately removed the software from my machine.

    It looked OK and handled kind of stiffly at this point in development. There are constant server reads that cause a delay in the game transitions (communicating with the store). In my experience this kind of in-game lag tends to get out of hand on release day as the number of micro-transactions increases. The DRIFT aspect of the game is not very good.

    In game purchases leave you with the perception that the races are unfair.

    I had high hopes for this game.

    Boring, boring, boring... Sub-par racing combined with micro transactions makes this game seem very pointless considering there are otherBoring, boring, boring... Sub-par racing combined with micro transactions makes this game seem very pointless considering there are other great racing games out there. Opponent cars seem to be locked in their track, so if you crash you can be sure that you're the one that will fly off to the side. Expand
