В целом Ridge Racer 7 получилась крепким середнячком. Если вам нравятся гоночные игры и у вас уже есть PlayStation 3, но нет Xbox 360, на данный проект можно обратить внимание. Хотя лучше все-таки купить MotorStorm или дождаться Gran Turismo 5.
Ridge Racer 7 is certainly not a system seller, not when the game is readily available on other platforms, especially a 360 version that's somewhat similar and only $20 these days.
Would-be drivers will feel like members of a global race community, complete with constantly updating race statistics and personal achievements. A nice selection of tracks, tunes and rides round out this very solid package.
Although the core gameplay hasn't changed much in over ten years - Ridge Racer is as fun as ever. It runs as smooth as butter, and with the rare ability to be displayed at 1080p for HDTV owners, it's plenty pretty enough.
Ridge Racer 7 introduces some great new additions that make this the most significant update Namco's arcade-style racing series has seen in years.
It's better in some areas than 6, and is certainly brilliant played against real people, or just picked up and played properly with the nitrous turned off in arcade mode. But it's not really as challenging.
