Ridge Racer 64 features 25 different racing cars--but you'll need to win a race in order to unlock many of these sporty vehicles. Each car presents its own challenges, as control varies widely for each vehicle. The luscious graphics help create the game's illusion of speed. In particular, the feeling of a fast-moving environment remains intact in the processor-crunching four-player mode.
The Ridge Racer box claims the game features nine racetracks, which is only partially true. The game actually has three tracks, with three gameplay variations for each track. According to my math, that still adds up to a total of three tracks. Seasoned Ridge Racer fans will tear through these courses in practically no time at all, while newbies might discover a less than deep racing experience.
Fans of pure arcade racing will love the gameplay simplicity and stunning graphics of this winner. All in all, Ridge Racer 64 offers a ride that's fun, but way too short. --Mark Brooks
