Ridge Racer Unbounded: Cool Effects, Heavy Drifting
I still remember playing the original Ridge Racer on the PlayStation. Man, I played the hell out of that game.
Ever since, despite my affinity for simulated driving, I've always been drawn to over-the-top arcade-style racing experiences like Burnout and MotorStorm. I never play them for extended periods of time but I enjoy my review sessions with such titles.
And now, here comes Ridge Racer Unbounded, which appears to be a blend of Burnout, Need for Speed, and previous RR entries; check out the GamesCom video below.
If you remember Ridge Racer 7, which was a pretty solid launch title for the PS3, there was a heavy emphasis on drifting. And as you can see, that focus has returned. But the crash and impact effects definitely remind us of Criterion's past efforts, and the game appears to run ultra-smooth. I kinda think the camera sits a tad too close but then again, I often think that.
So are you excited for Unbounded?
