Ridge Racer: Type 4

  (Import Version)

   Let's get one thing straight - this game is not massively difficult - within an hour I had won Grand Prix mode (yes, it was my first attempt) and the cars are not as tough to overtake as those in, say Gran Turismo or Formula One '97. However, it makes little to no difference, as the graphics are amazing with only tiny amounts of pop-up on the long straights (it's still better than Gran Turismo in this respect), the cars handle well with the slides challenging but rewarding. The (fake) environment mapping effects are a sight to behold, especially on the night-time tracks and the two-player mode is the best I have ever seen, with no visual compromise or drop in frame-rate. It's fast, exciting, awe-inspiring, at times beautiful, always fun and a great showcase for the Playstation thanks to the new Performance Analysis software. This is a game where you can believe the hype. What are you waiting for? Go and buy it

Fantastic! Can't wait to get it!
Good, not sure if I'll buy immediately.
Eh, not bad, but I don't care.
It's just a stupid money grab.
