Ridge Racer DS Review

Balls-out arcade racing fun


The polar opposite of realistic racers such as Gran Turismo 4 and Forza Motorsport, Ridge Racer DS is all about balls-out arcade racing and screaming around impossible bends without troubling the brakes. But while the graphics are razor-sharp and you can challenge up to five friends using a single cartridge and the DS' nifty wireless connection, the shallow driving style will leave seasoned gamers yearning for something more challenging, and the stingy selection of tracks mean that you'll see most things Ridge Racer has to offer in a few short sittings.
