5 Great arcade racer for the PSPBashimitsu | 03/05/2007 | See all Bashimitsu's reviews (61)Top 100 Reviewer Top 10 Games Reviewer Top 10 Electronics Reviewer Top 100 Gadgets Reviewer Top 10 Mobile Reviewer I admit right now that I'm a Ridge Racer fanboy and that I am guilty of honking on the Ridge train in several of my reviews on here but please don't let that put you off too much!Ridge Racer for the PSP is my 2nd best reason to recommend the purchase of a PSP (after the magnificent Loco Roco). It's an arcade racer and those that like the unforgiving reality of F1 games (with all aids off) Gran Turismo or Forza will quickly realise that this is not the racer they are looking for. Those that have enjoyed older Ridge Racer games and the various Outrun games should feel right at home and be in their element: it's fast, slick, well presented and more addictive than Pringles that have been delicately seasoned with Colombian marching powder.As you are probably aware there is a sequel to this game available for the PSP that's been imaginatively titled 'Ridge Racer 2'. I'm afraid that Namco's rampant imagination seemingly knows no bounds and that Ridge Racer 2 is cash-cowingly similar to this. I'd say that if you already own one or the other then you'd have to be a die-hard fan (like your humble reviewer here) to warrant the purchase of the other but if you own neither then rest assured that both are equally brilliant and very worthy of a 5 star rank.
