Ridge Racer Unbounded ist ein Arcade Action Rennspiel vom feinsten. Mit großartig in Szene gesetzten Explosionen und vielen verschiedenen Strecken und Fahrzeugen wird bei diesem Spiel die Zerstörung und Verschrottung von Autos und Gebäuden zelebriert. Die Steuerung ist genau und die Sounds sind von hoher Qualität. Bei dieser Gewaltorgie kommt bei jedem Fan von Feuer und Zerstörung das Blut in Wallung und die Hände werden vor Erregung feucht. (Hoffentlich nur die Hände.) Fazit: Alt, aber gut mit originellem Flair und sehr günstig.

Review verfasst am 4.07.2015

Ridge Racer™ Unbounded ist kein Simulationsgame sondern ein Arcade Racer. Die Grafik ist fürs Jahr 2015 nicht mehr up to Date, aber nicht hässlich. Den Sound find ich toll. Am Anfang sind nur wenige Fahrzeuge und Strecken verfügbar. Es gibt jedoch ein Levelsystem und bei jedem neuen Levelanstieg gibts neue Fahrzeuge. Und bei erfolgreich beendeten Rennen werden weitere Strecken freigeschaltet. Der Schwierigkeitsgrad ist für mein Empfinden einen Tick zu hoch und die Steuerung etwas schwammig. Persönliche Spielspaßwertung 8 von 10.

Ich empfehle euch das Game wenn ihrs unter 10 Euro kriegen könnt, und Spaß an Arcade Rennspielen habt.

This game tries to be like Burnout without any of the fun, design or physics of Burnout. So, you have cars that control terribly, bad level design with boring/annoying elements all over the place, uninspired gameplay, etc.

I'm not familiar with Ridge Racer franchise as a matter of fact this is my first Ridge Racer game. As far as i know it was arcade racing game without any destruction so i understand why a lot of fan hate this game. Personally though this game is fun solid arcade racing game, it's just trying so hard to be a Burnout clone because the takedown or frag mechanic is terrible but it's still really enjoyable. One of the reason i love this game is the fantastic looking muscle cars specially Nakamura 70 which looks like classic ford mustang. The levels are using the same assets over and over again but i don't really mind actually it's just really repetitive and good thing is you can create your own track with the same assets. so if you like casual chaotic arcade racing like Burnout or Flatout you might want to try this game, it's often discounted, there is a demo for it and the size is only 1.5 GB

It's not a very good Ridge Racer game, but it is a fun Burnout/Split Second racer. While the gameplay still involves drifting around corners to an extent, your boost bar increases when you destroy obstacles, draft opponents, and crash other cars. Once it's full you can plow through opponents, crash through walls to create shortcuts and explode track features that will cause other cars to crash.

There's also a fairly decent track creator that runs into two issues: all of the game's online features no longer work (which also includes multiplayer) so you can no longer share your tracks with others, and the AI can't seem to get the hang of some of the more complex layouts you can come up with. Still, it adds some replay value after you're done with all career events.

At any rate, it's fun even if it has a few flaws, so I would wait for a sale if you're interested.

Pros:
* Enjoyable heavy and drifty driving - kinda reminds me of the Driver series, especially the third installment
* City vibe
* Variety of tracks
* DESTRUCTION!!!
* Lighting and reflections - especially in the City Center
* Clean HUD - the necessary info is neatly implemented into the environment, only appearing for a brief yet sufficient moment of time
* OST - good mix of different genres of electronic music

Cons:
* Physics glitches - sometimes a turned over cone is enough to send your car spinning and threshing in the air
* Lack of tutorial - I only figured out how to drift properly (keep pressing the button gradually) after the first stage (City Limits)
* Dead servers -> no multiplayer: a cheap AWS instance would keep the little amount of players left going, why not?!
* Repetitive track blocks - extra variety would be welcome
* Too much debris on the screen - sometimes it becomes frustrating to navigate the streets and the game starts to feel like a maze (hi, City Center!)

Verdict: a cool arcade racer to pick up on sale.

I'll be reviewing Ridge Racer: Identity Crisis. I mean “Unbounded”. As it stands, this is the final installment of a once great racing franchise that released their last truly enjoyable game 20 years ago. Don't get me wrong, there were appealing elements to Ridge Racer after part 5, but that one was a well-rounded package, balancing arcade racing with a deep (at the time) career mode. I literally spent 15 minutes with this title and I'm already sick of it. I really wanted to like this one. I tried, but every time I thought I was warming up to it, that my complaints were simply because I hadn't gotten used to the game, something else set my teeth on edge.

This game was actually developed by Bugbear, who you may remember as being responsible for the Flatout series. More recently they gave us Wreckfest, an excellent title, but as of 2012 (when this was released) they're most recognizable titles were the Flatout games). The best possible way I can describe this title is to say that Bugbear tried to make Flatout into Burnout and then dressed it all up as Ridge Racer.

It seems as though there were two diametrically opposed factions involved in making this game, and they never were able to come to an agreement. On one side you have the Burnout crew, fighting passionately to make this a demolition racer with its emphasis on wrecking cars and destroying property. On the other was the Ridge Racer team, the ones who wanted this title to stick to its roots, focusing on racing prowess and drifting finesse. And neither side was willing to budge. As such this game feels like it's stuck in transition. There's too much Ridge Racer in it to keep it from being a good Burnout clone, and there's too much Burnout in it to make it a good Ridge Racer game.

Unbounded features a few new additions and changes to gameplay that are, frankly, alien to the RR franchise. I want to be generous and say that it's their attempt at a demolition racer, casting a broader net for comparisons, but they very clearly set their sites specifically on Burnout. Instead of the sanctioned circuits, cordoned off as race tracks, like in previous RR titles, this game opts for the “gritty street racer” fad that permeated every racing game at the time that wasn't an officially licensed title from an established organization. The city, Shatter Bay (I wonder how they came up with that name), is full of destructible objects to crash, bash, and smash your way through. There are buildings with walls you can smash through to create shortcuts. The boost meter finds its way back into the series, but with an added wrinkle this time around. In keeping with generously dipping into the Burnout bucket, boosting makes your car an indestructible battering ram. You can wreck (referred to as “frag”) your opponents and crash through certain walls to create shortcuts through various structures. This can only be done while you're boosting. Of course, winning or losing depends almost exclusively on the use of your boost. Great lap times? Perfectly executed drifts? Utilized every possible shortcut? It doesn't matter because one of the other racers saved their boost for the last 1500 meters and, compliments of the game's rubber-band AI to encourage beating and banging, they're right on your bumper and easily overtake you.

It honestly feels like they tried to force Ridge Racer into a Burnout box and it wasn't a good fit. Certain bits and pieces of the RR franchise that didn't fit neatly into the box were shorn from the game. Ridge Racer's drift-heavy physics are somewhat tamed here, supposedly to aid in wrecking. However, all it does is strip away one of the most satisfying elements of the series. A perfect drift through a corner or series of corners used to be richly rewarding and afforded you with a respectable lead (not to mention some eye candy to encourage you to watch the replay). Now it's more like a frustrating chore, something to do to refill your boost gauge. Putting so much emphasis on demolition racing it seems Namco/Bandai opted for rubber-band AI to keep collision fodder nearby at all times. This further emphasizes how little racing matters to this franchise, anymore. It's no longer about the best lap times or the smoothest lines. It's about utilizing boost, and it always seems like the AI rivals never actually rum out of boost.

Then, because of the Ridge Racer side, it never really becomes a good demolition racer. Rubbing fenders and trading paint with your opponents almost feels tacked on. It doesn't feel like it's actually supposed to be an integral part of the racing, but it's been forced to a position of importance within the title. You wreck them only while boosting, and even then it requires a direct hit. Meanwhile, they brush up against you and you're fragged. It honestly makes it feel more like a gimmick, developed to nothing more than a tech-demo to drum up early interest in some demo footage, yet forced to be an integral part of the gameplay.

I was honestly hoping that, if I couldn't enjoy this title as another entry in the Ride Racer series I could at least get some fun out of it as an arcade racer or perhaps a well-executed Burnout clone. Unfortunately it's such a hodgepodge of gameplay styles and concepts that it never does any one thing well enough to like it. Every time I started to enjoy one aspect of the game it got fragged as it crashed into another aspect of the game. This game's crisis of identity is impossible to ignore and makes the game impossible for me to enjoy.

Played this on consoles and now on Steam. If you like arcade racers theres a good chance you'll like this, its about as arcady as you can get - very much feels like a coin-op racing game. The game is constantly over the top, with constant boosting, destroying other cars, big booms, and smashing through walls. Some of the negs are limited graphics options, frame rate isnt uncapped, and the timed stunt tracks can be annoying because its hard to play them in a repeatable way (a landing might make your car torque on you just because of ground geometry). Its also much different from older ridge racer titles, just expect that when going in. Overall I think its still a good value for the sale price if you like arcade racers.

For sale price, this game's pretty good. The gameplay's an interesting mix of Split/Second and Burnout, with some solid handling and takedown mechanics. The career's short (I beat it in about 5 hours with almost all 3 star finished), and the car list isn't amazing, but it is decently varied at least.

I remember being amazed by this game in 2012 when I played demo. At that time I wasn't playing many racing games.
Today when I started really playing racing games, and I got it on sale for 3$... It's really bad game, feels empty and ugly (even for 2012 it's ugly, there was many games that were beautiful in that year).
Somehow my car is slow as hell and I need to constantly drift to have some chance catching up to NPCs, and when I drift to long, it gets stuck and I end up crashing... This is a total joke.

If you liked Ridge Racer 6 or 7 Don't bother with this game. It's unpolished and doesn't even feel like a RR game. The drifting is garbage the only thing it does is slam you into walls at full speed and then they want you to destroy buildings while also trying to win the race. This game shouldn't honestly even be called Ridge Racer at all and was barely worth the $2.49 i spent on it.

If you're looking for anything close to realistic, you won't find it here. The car audio doesn't even match the gear shifting that's just how unrealistic it is. All of the online services are now permanently offline, so that's a negative. The way the cars get damaged and would render them impossible to drive, etc.

In fact, I can't really find any reason to recommend this game unless you really are into the Ridge Racer franchise. The only reason I bought it was because it was on serious special and because I'd played Ridge Racer that was released on the PSP when it first came out that I really enjoyed that.

It's not like the other Ridge Racer games, but it still is a good game. I actually played this and uploaded videos about it.

This game wasn't what I expected from a Ridge Racer game, and because of all the negative reviews I never bought it. It doesn't have online anymore but that is OK, online is overrated anyway. All that said, after a few hours with this game I absolutely love it and it is giving me the same rush as any previous Ridge Racer game. The gameplay is challenging and varied plus the graphics at 4k is amazing for an arcade racer! If you love arcade racers, this game is for you!

Unbounded may not have much to do with the things
that defined Ridge Racer, but if you can get over that,
you'll discover an energetic, entertaining racer, with
gratifyingly destructive environments, challenging
gameplay and interesting online. Ridge Racer was due

This is not a good singleplayer game, this is not a good multiplayer game. It's now a corpse, dead from all activity with a ton of copy'd assets, cheating teleportation AI, and with wonky mechanics. You can't set your own controls. The singleplayer has no legs to stand on and is just repetitive, without any story. There is no longer multiplayer. It has DLC's which bring nothing to the game. It might have been something in 2012, but it can't really test the age of time.

I mean, there are no reasons to buy this game, not anymore. 3/10
There are better options for both for singleplayer and multiplayer games.

Back in 2012 Namco wanted to make new Ridge Racer and they wanted to make it modern. They hireg Bugbear and told them to go with what's trendy. The result was a game that has nothing to do with Ridge Racer and everything to do with Burnout. Also edgy.

But it's been 8 years and purely arcade racers are hard to come by. So what do we get? Well if you are familiar with the pre-Paradise City Burnouts this is basically it, plus quite a lot of drifting (which in this case IS actually a bit closer to how drifting should work, just a bit thoug, meaning it's kinda hard to get right).

So you will be racing, wrecking other cars drifting to the sound of techno in an urban-industrial setting. Back in the day, this game was considered kinda bad, unispired, too hard, boring etc. In 2020 with the focus being on racing simulators or Forza wannabe's, Unbounded is like a breath of fresh air. It's tough, sometimes unfair, most of the times hard, but if you forget the Ridge Racer legacy, it's very much a fun game.

8 years ago, I could point out many things that should have been done better, but considering how arcade racers are now, this thing feels like a torch of hope.

For the current discount price it's a no-brainer (DLC you can skip, most of the cars are bad and some are OP).
All in all, I had more fun with this in the past few days than with anything else out there and to me that speaks volumes.

The only real drawback is the lack of multiplayer since the servers have been shut down (too bad with the track editor and all still being there).

If you are looking for a purely arcade racer, with nice graphics, great destruction and fun gameplay and can forgive the fact that someone calle this Ridge Racer, buy it and have fun.

Great game, tons of fun... but also frustration. I managed to finish it today after installing it at least 3 times since I got it. somehow along the way I remeber I lost all my progress for some reason, I'm not sure what happened.

Anyway. The game still looks pretty and is still a blast to play, especially the domination races. The domination races are basically normal races where you race through city districty and drift to gather turbo points.
You get turbo points even when you are near an opponent, you gain them even quicker when there are many opponents around you. You also gather turbo points by smashing things. Gathering turbo points is the same for every race mode, and there are several.
Once your turbo is full, you can use is to crash your opponents, that will respawn, just as you when you get crashedby them. Also, once your turbo is full you can blast through walls to create shortcuts and crash into trucks and stuff that will explode in turn crashing your opponents.

The other game modes like racing against time, destroying police cars, either with your car or a massive truck, and drifting challenges, they are mostly not as fun as domination races because of the extremely hard to reach high score you need to unlock the next race in the district. This results in a ton of grinding, for example, you are finishing a district but you miss the last race or next race, cause it's still locked. What you need to do is to replay races where you didn't score so well to get those additional newly gained points. You can also replay racer where you scored well, but you can always see if you can score better. However you need to amass the new points in order to unlock the last, or next race of the district.

Personally I'm glad I have finally finished it. I tried so hard to make a good time on the final race, but I could not reach 2 stars for just 25 miliseconds. Upon many many tries, I gave up. One star will do.

I guess that must be how they must have set their time limits... They must have played a bunch, made their best times and then subtracted some 20 seconds from their result, for you to reach to get 3 stars. Otherwise I don't understand how did they set those impossible-to-beat times. In the end, I ended with 2 races on 2 stars and the last race 1 star. On every other race I got 3 stars, but many times it was near impossible to get the 3 stars. It was insane.

So yes, Ridge Racer Unbounded is fun and frustrating. But if you are fan of arcade racing games and you never played this, then I suggest you try, you might love it. Also, if you love games like this, there is another cool and frustrating game you must play,called Slpit/Second. Which is in my opinion, even more exciting and adreaniline-pumping experience and looks prettier than Ridge Racer Unbounded.

This game was clearly a victim of misbranding. It's not Ridge Racer at all, but it's bloody awesome arcade racer that still holds up in the gameplay, visual and sound department nearly a decade after its initial release. Well, save for the dubstep part of the soundtrack, lol.

The fact you can't access any kind of multiplayer (due to servers being shut down) is frustrating. Would really love to play with my friends, whether it would be online, LAN, or even splitscreen. I mean, once i unlock all the stuff and 100% the single player campaign (almost there at the time of posting this), i would really like to play some more.

Oh well, still recommended, because the challenging single player campaign is worth it, but only when you come across discounted bundle that contains all the DLC.
Not really worth the full price imo, because of the killed-off multiplayer part of the game...
