Arcade racers are primarily aimed at over-caffeinated eight year olds, and if that's you then RR7 will tick all the right boxes. I appreciate that driving something here bears absolutely no relation to driving in the real world. But that's the point - when I'm driving something, I expect to be able to predict what it's going to do, rather than having it arbitrarily clunk against the often invisible limits of where the programmers decided the car would be allowed to steer. And the teeth-grindingly irritating DJ (which can at least be switched off), the apparently minimal effort in working out a driving physics model beyond "hit the brake, steer to the side and you'll drift" and the occasionally perverse AI used for the computer drivers results in a clunky, way-below-average game experience. The number of copies of this in the pre-owned bins in your local game store is probably the most damning criticism you'll get; as for me, I want more from a racing game.
Suprised to see this only has an average of 3 stars! It was the first game I played after purchasing an HD TV and HDMI cable back when I first got my ps3, and the picture quality was breathtaking. Sure in comparison now most of my games look as good if not better, but you cant rate an older game based on its graphics now - particularly when they are based upon an arcade feel which this achieves fantastically and are still pretty good even now.
