Don't want to start a negative first post, but my god that was quite unimpressive to watch. I thought the 3ds was capable for a lot more then this fussy low resolution of a game.

Yeah, it's much better looking than the DS version, but that's not saying much.
At least it looks like an old school Ridge game though, as opposed to that Unbounded teaser we got.

Frame rates need to be fixed by release.

This looks like one of the 1st gen iPhone games. I really wish Nintendo would just put a little bit more juice into their consoles. They make more fun games but it would be cool if they made fun games with ground breaking graphics as well.

The problem with the 3DS is that it needs to put out double the frame rate, for the left and right eye images.

I wouldn't expect a Ridge Racer game to look brilliant either way, the last few games of the series have been appalling.

im sorry but namco seriously needs to drop the japanese techno music its awful, also given that at E3 the videos showing what the 3Ds can do it looked almost as good as psp and this is what im getting at, ridge racer on the psp looks better on the psp given it came out over 3 years ago this ridge racer id have expected much better visuals only this is not the case it just looks like a slightly updated DS game which it is essentially but on a handheld that costs over £230 id just go and buy a psp and enjoy a ridge racer game in 2d that looks cool rather than having 3D but is visualy poorer than the 2d version.

dont get me wrong ive got nothing against the 3DS just it looks like some other developer is making this game under licence from namco/nintendo id personally wait for mario kart 3D to come out as you can guarentee the big N is going to use every ounce of power the 3DS has.

Looks awful...Ridge Racer Type 4 on PSX had better art and tech than this....about the music, Namco's music department kicks ass bro!! The music in the trailer might be bad but expect the OST to have some decent tracks...I mean RR4's OST was kick ass!

About the game

What's up?
  • Tinks
    Tinks yeah I would hope so. The fact it's $60 right now in this stage is rough though (45 minutes ago)
  • Phaethon360
    Phaethon360 I'm assuming since it's 1st party there's a decent chance of it eventually becoming good. (54 minutes ago)
  • Tinks
    Tinks so I'm thinking I may wait to buy Sea of Thieves when it actually has good quest content. Game is REAL shallow (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth like in dark souls where i mapped run/dash/roll to one of the paddles so i could run (b-button) while controlling the camera (right thumbstick) at the same time. (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth you can feel the difference in material quality in every part. 3 different swappable thumbstick heights is also nice, and the programmable and swappable trigger pads beneath are also nice in some gams (6 Hours ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth @droezelke: i had the standard one pad. i liked it, but then it was in an (ahem..) accident. So i had to get a new one anyway. the elite is really nice. d-pad is very good. good grip (6 Hours ago)
  • droezelke
    droezelke @Melmoth: Standard. The elite is too expensive. I can buy multiple games for that money :-) (6 Hours ago)
