    This racer is more of a mix of elements from Split Second, Blur, and Burnout (I haven't played the Flatout series so forgive the omission). The only thing "Ridge Racer" about this game are the light trails when boosting. Although RR:U does not match the quality of the mechanics from any of those games, mixing those mechanics ensures the game still reaches the same level of action that is still fast and NON-STOP (non-stop chains of drifting, environment destruction, and fragging - your mileage may vary). Watch the Steam trailer, because what you will see is actually what you will get. Even the music from that video is taken from the game. User created tracks ensure longer replay value, but multiplayer competition is, as of now, non-existent. It may not be unique like the games that it seems to emulate, but it's still a great addition to anyone's virtual racing collection. Oh, and it runs at a smooth 60fps with vsync on as long as your PC can handle it. Expand

    It's not a 10 game but I find that superficial reviews need some balancing. The actual note is 8 for this. Really fun but it's a bit weird when you first play it. Expecting the following games : Burnout, Flatout, NFS even Ridge Racer is a mistake. The combined elements make for a unique experience that begins to be rewarding after some plays. When you get around the game mechanics you'll have fun I promise you! Expand

    Brilliant game.The graphics and controls are fantastic. Its up there with Burnout, Split Second, Blur, NFS, and Flatout Ultimate Carnage and maybe even better than some of those.

    If you love demanding arcade racing games, heavy on OCD, give it a chance, as soon as its price is lowered. Otherwise, you can find much better games of the genre out there. [May 2012]

    Unbounded is a part of a franchise strongly associated with consoles but somehow turns out to be average on X360 and one of the best arcade racing games in years on PC. On PC it just plays better (even with a keyboard!) and is extremely rewarding. [June 2012, p.66]

    A significant shift from previous installments towards a greater show and extreme drifting. If you prefer Split/Second type of racing the new Ridge Racer won't disappoint you. [May 2012]
