    Beauty is in the eye of the beholder...

    Sure there is a lot of bad publicity with this game, especially from this particular gaming website, but I finally picked this game up at Best Buy the other day for only $5 and I must say that this game is a bit underrat... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Ridge Racer DS

  • Rating:6

    Ridge Racer DS is a little hard to use, but with all the cars and tracks to unlock, it'll last you a good long time.

    The first time I played Ridge Racer was in multiplayer mode. My friend had the game and we thought we'd try versing on it. I looked at the cars and tracks I was able to use and thought, is this a joke? There were only ab... Read Full Review

    This game flat out sucked, if ur in the market for a racing game for your ds do your selves a favor and look elsewhere. The handling of the cars is awful, it looks like somekind a frankensteined version of the uglyest ca... Read Full Review

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

    I didn't like this game the first time I played it. I didn't play it until it had been out for quite some time (way after Mario Kart DS was released). I bought it used at Game Stop just to see what it was like, and I s... Read Full Review

    By far one of the ds' superior games

    I love this game. I like that when you run into the back of a computer it slows you down and gives them a boost. I also like if they run into the back of you they go through you slow you down and they receive a boost, i... Read Full Review

    Definitely overlooked. It's a great game!

    Ridge Racer DS is actually quite a good game. The sound is the best I've heard on the DS and the graphics are good, way better than say, Asphalt Urban GT. The textures are a bit iffy, though. The game also includes touch... Read Full Review

    I can't believe how disappointing this game is.

    Ridge Racer is my favorite racing series especially old classics like Ridge Racer Revolution, but this game didn't live up to its title. It was cool for a while, but when I got on Stage 8 on Grand Prix, it is much harder... Read Full Review

    Bad Bad game that has some good points.

    This was my first racing game on the DS. Also one of the reasons I sold my DS. I had no previous contact with the Ridge Racer type of racing games and this game pushed me as far away from them as it is possible to do s... Read Full Review
