    Ridge Racer (vita)

    Couldn't see a thread for this.

    I just bought it on recommendation of a few people on here despite a lot of reviews trying to convince me otherwise. I have to say that I'm not disappointed with the game, though I have to admit I'm not entirely sure what I have bought.

    Is there an actual proper single player competent here? I really don't know, doesn't seem to be with single race (which the announcer refer s too as training) and a time trial about the only things you can do solo. The menus are confusing and nothing is really explained to the player though so maybe I have missed somthing. From what I can see there are far more multiplayer options though so I can only presume that the online is where the meat of this lies.

    Other than that it's just Ridge Racer, it's the same game that's been released on every console known to man since the launch of the PSP. Horrible menus that are confusing to navigate and lack of content aside once you play the game it is as fun as it has ever been.

    I just hope they release DLC that is more single player focused sometimes soon.

    I think that's all there is. I'm starting to think I should have stuck with Ridge 7.

    all the above has been well documented since import release, so doesnt really come as a surprise......

    a big disapointment for ridge fans, hence the lack of hype and discussion

    good for someone who hasnt played RR7 though

    It's not a big disappointment at all. It's almost exactly the same as the past five or so games in the series. Infact this is the only one out of those games that actually offers anything new.
    Kept you waiting, huh?

    Except the fact that there is no single player career mode in this. Considering that lasted me probabaly over 100 hours in the other games it means this is a bit lacking.

    In fact its very lacking, theres no structure to the game at all, all you have is single race mode for 4 tracks. Its the equivilant of the Latest fighting game having only a Vs mode.

    I dont play many games online, and I never really play racing games online at all becuase I hate the fact that you spend more time in lobbies than playing, which means this has zero content for me really, which IS a MASSIVE disapointment.

    Like I said though the actual gameplay isnt disapointing, its just a shame there is virtually none of it.

    Agreed. Now I know that everything I do earns credits for me which makes my car better which means I stand a better chance of winning online it's great.

    Loving my "Spotlight VIP" trophy yesterday. Quality.

    Then it seems you are missing the point of it entirely. It's an online versus racer. TBH I've never heard of another game that could call itself that.

    Now I'm a huge Ridge Racer fan, but the current career mode is tired. It's just the same races over and over again. Personally I find racing against human opponents way more entertaining than against the easily beaten A.I. Once May is here and we have ALL of the DLC then it'll be even better than it currently is.

    Since when was the Ridge racer series about online vs racing?

    It may have started out as a game with one track, but it was originally a single player arcade cabinate and since then has become one of the best racing series ever made and that is largley due to its wealth of single player options, the world tour mode in recent games has be huge.

    This game is called Ridge Racer, so I expect a title that does what the rest of the series does, but this lacks the content of recent games in the series.

    In fact even if this was called ridge racer online it would still be lacking to be honest, theres just nothing there, a couple more tracks and a couple more cars wont change that fact either.

    Then someone should have told me so I didnt waste 20 on it.

    Even if I liked playing online I doubt this would have kept my interest long though, theres just not much here.

    Its even stranger when you consider that the game has so little content and gives you such a tiny ammount of credits for even winning a race (at leats in single player), I had won on every track twice and only gained two upgrades. I dont really want to wait in a lobby for ten minutes then lose in a 5 minute race and then repeat the process. So now I have nothing left to do with the game.
