    I don't think this is ridge racer anymore. It feels more like a Burnout wannabe. I mean who would want to take the gameplay that made up the series and turn it into this?

    Ridge Racer Unbounded is decent.

    The cars handle well.You build up a power meter to boost,which can allow you to destroy a building to take a shortcut or to wreck a rival.The AI is very cheap,and one mistake nearly always costs you the race,which is very frustrating. The game's framerate stays stable at all times,and the game looks gorgeous. The sound efffects and soundtrack are

    The game's framerate stays stable at all times,and the game looks gorgeous.

    The sound efffects and soundtrack are poor though.

    Like I said before,Ridge Racer Unbounded is decent,but frustrating.

    Racing with an old flair, yet creating with a new one, Ridge Racer fans will find a lot to love here.

    Falling somewhere between a traditional Ridge Racer title and a Burnout game, Unbounded fails to fully succeed at recreating either experience, ending up in between the two racing franchises in terms of quality.

    An intense and addictive adrenaline rush, a high-speed power fantasy that will make you feel like Jesus on Wheels - when it works. When it doesn't, which is a lot, races tend to reduce to exercises in tedium and frustration. [June 2012, p.73]
