The long-running Ridge Racer series returns again this time on the PSP, but will the latest addition to the Ridge Racer series live up to the popular name?
First Impressions: Whenever possible, we try to give our loyal website viewers the most video footage and most in depth unbiased reviews imaginable. Part of that development is our "initial impressions" where we offer up our first impressions of the title that we are playing.This gives our website visitors more of clear understanding of what to first expect out of the game when they initially pop it into their consoles. If you scroll to the bottom of the page in the Rent vs. Buy section of the review and do not see the "final impressions" assessment then it's safe to say that you are reading our initial impression of the game. Once the final impression is up, there will be no further video or review done to that particular title.
Final Impressions: The final impression is just that, our completed breakdown and overall thoughts on the game based off of our entire game playing time.You can locate the final impressions assessment in the "Rent vs. Buy" section of the review (always located at the very end of all of our reviews). Here you will be able to read our final thoughts on the title and also see any potential grade changes that were made to the game as well (higher or lower). Should a grading change occur, it will be clearly noted with the previous grade, the new grade, and why the change occurred. Although this approach is more time consuming and requires many more man hours, our entire goal has always been to provide the best and completely unbiased reviews possible and we feel that the inclusion of the Initial Impressions and Final Impressions sections will give you a better view of what to expect from a new game. All that we ask in return is for you to continue to support Krakrabbit.com by visiting the site and letting others know about our cause.

Vroom: The latest Ridge Racer follows the same gameplay formula as the previous installments in the well-known series, and has you racing a variety of cars in an arcade-type style of racing that emphasis speed and drifting.Ridge Racer features a large variety of cars, and each and every one of them look incredibly realistic and shine with detail and polish. The in-game graphics are just as impressive and as you race around the fairly robust amount of tracks, you will be able to see your glorious speed bullet in action. The tracks look just as great as the cars, and reflect light and different shadows at different times on the track, giving you a true sense of racing on the track.
Stock Parts: As aforementioned, Ridge Racer is an arcade racer, and nothing else. The game is all about hopping from race to race, unlocking cars on your way to beating the game.In Ridge Racer you are unable to tweak your car in any way, and you are stuck with the same look and feel of each car through the entire game.
Rent vs. Buy: Overall, Ridge Racer is a pretty impressive game for being the first venture into the portable world.The formula and gameplay of the game hasn't changed a bit, and of you are not fans of the series this game will not convince you to re-look at the franchise. If you liked the series on the various consoles, you will undoubtedly find comfort in the PSP version of the long-running series.
