Ridge Racer

Ridge Racer titles have been present at the launch of countless new gaming platforms and this Vita entry keeps up that tradition.

Fans of the long-running series can expect the usual fare of bright and beautiful tracks around cities, mountains and coastlines, including some old favourites from previous Ridge Racers.

The key difference between Vita’s Ridge Racer and its predecessors is its business model. The game arrives at a lower price of £19.99, for which players get access to three tracks and five cars. Players can then expand their options with DLC: new tracks, cars and music that will be available at various prices.

That’s not to say players will be forced to buy extra content. Namco Bandai has promised daily challenges to keep gamers hooked, and online multiplayer modes such as Planetary League allow Vita owners to prove their racing prowess to the world.

Sure, but there is additional content for free on the download which makes up the content.
