What Gamespot Users have to say about Ridge Racer DS

    Ridge Racer DS is far from a Good game.

    Rated on December 29, 2005 by gregarok

    Hello! I got this game, when I bought DS from somebody. The game itself is nothing special and it is far from a good game. The gameplay is very bad (you just hit the wall and you are at 0 mp/h) and...

    Not a very good game, handling stinks, graphics are sub-par. quite possibly the worst racing title on the DS.

    A crappy port of a N64 game.

    Rated on December 30, 2005 by shadow_mirage

    Ridge Racer DS. This could have been great if they actually tried to use the DS's capabilities instead of porting it from the N64. But we get a poor version for a rushed launch. Here's the lackluster ...

    This is real similar to the n64.

    Rated on January 06, 2006 by ALeeFan12

    This was my second game for the ds. I swear that this is barely different from the n64 version. Well you can choose up to a couple of different cars. Lets talk about graphics. They suck. I thought tha...

    It's not all that bad, it's fun so how bad could it be?

    Rated on June 04, 2007 by myron30
