Here's another opportunity to buckle in, put your keys in the ignition, get into gear, and screech over the starting line as your foot smashes the accelerator to the floor.
NB. Remember to use the code FTSL15-1, if you haven't already done so, in order to get the game for £4.25.
You can grab a copy of the game for £4.25 from Tesco Entertainment if you've not already grabbed the opportunity to use their promotional code, but if you have you can still get your hands on it for the reasonable price of £5.00. That means that with the code you'll be making a saving of over £5.50 on the next best offer of £9.99 from Game, and almost £5.00 without it.

Compared to the majority of modern racers that have been released recently, Ridge Racer 7's list of only 40 cars is pretty laughable. Luckily there's a much greater range of tracks, totalling 22 in all, and these can be played in either forward, reverse, or mirror mode, which definitely helps to increase variety.
The cars are all outfitted with a generous helping of nitrous to help boost you into the lead, however your best bet for propelling yourself to first place'll be to master drifting and I can't help but think that maybe the game should have been called Drift Racer 7 due to the amount you'll be using the trusty manoeuvre.
If you're looking for a game with realistic driving physics then you're best off going somewhere else because they've been sacrificed in favour of fun, high speed racing, where you'll need to be just as proficient at weaving your way around the other players as you are at tearing round the track at top speed.
