RIDGE RACER 7  £6.99 @ HMV [PS3 Games]Fans of the sleek, slick, larger-than-life gameplay of the Ridge Racer series will find a lot to sink their teeth into with the seventh addition to the franchise. Currently the game is available for just £6.99 from HMV – an offer which, according to price comparison, is a massive £13.78 cheaper than the next best deal going on simply games.

Ridge Racer has to be one of the most enduring of any racing game series. However, anyone unfamiliar with its unique style of gameplay, and who is after something to satisfy their yearning for wanton destruction and high speed smash ups, would do better to look towards the Burnout series. The emphasis of Ridge Racer is more upon high speed, and the game requires players to master the art of ‘drifting’, an element which veteran Ridge Racer players will be well used to, but one which can be highly ambiguous for beginners.

The idea is that as you enter a corner – doing something like 200mph– you momentarily release the accelerator as you begin to turn and then, after pressing it back down again, send your car sliding  through the corner. The idea is to make sure you are facing the right direction when traction eventually returns to your ‘machine’. The game also offers players the chance to select the type of ‘drift’ which they want for their particular cars, varying from mild to dynamic.

Beginners may not find themselves falling for Ridge Racer on their very first go, but experienced players will find that  the new features offered by RR7 (loads more customization options, slipstreaming) makes it one the most evolutionary sequels in the series.

£4.99 would have been sweet, still £6.99 aint too bad for a launch title. Think I still have the demo, didn't quite grab me as much as RR4
