UK Deal of the Day: Ridge Racer 2 less than £1

Ridge Racer 2 is essentially the PSP launch title, Ridge Racer, with only ten new tracks (we're really not kidding about this folks). That doesn't mean it's a bad game ... it just means it's a bad deal.

That is, until now. UK PC World stores will give you the title for a mere £0.97. You're getting a full game for almost the same cost as the free downloadable demo. We say: deal.

Top 5 on PSP: Racing

There are plenty of new PSPs in gamer's houses since the holidays and I figured some new PSP owners may not be up to speed on what great games the system has to offer. With that in mind, every day this week we'll feature a new genre and list the top 5 games (according to metareviews), so no matter what you're into, you'll have some idea of what games you should own. Day 2 kicks off with a very competitive genre on PSP: Racing.

Top 5 Racing games on PSP

  1. (tie) Ridge Racer/WipEout Pure
  2. Burnout Legends
  3. TOCA Race Driver 2
  4. Outrun 2006: Coast 2 Coast
  5. Twisted Metal: Head-On

I'm not a giant racing fan, so I only own Burnout Legends and Twisted Metal: Head-On (I dig the carnage factor). I did enjoy them both quite a bit though. But what I think doesn't really matter. What do you think about these 5 games? What racing games aren't on this list that you think every PSP owner should have?

If you missed it, you can check out our previous top 5 game lists:

Deal of the Day: $17 PSP games at Circuit City

Deal of the Day: $17 PSP games at Circuit CityIf you're like me, then you like to buy your games on the cheap. And you can't get much cheaper than Circuit City and its $17 clearance on a bunch of PSP games.

Here's the list:

Burnout Legends
Death Jr.
FIFA World Cup 2006
Lumines
Mega Man: Powered Up
Midway Arcade Treasures
Namco Museum Battle Collection
NBA Ballers Rebound
Pinball Hall of Fame
Ridge Racer
SSX On Tour
Street Fighter Alpha 3 Max
WWE Smackdown vs. Raw

Yeah, most of these games are a tad old, but we gotta take the deals as they come to us, right? It doesn't look like this deal is currently being offered online, so you'll have to get off the computer and go outside.

Ridge Racers 2 rips you off


I once wrote about Ridge Racers 2: "Doesn't it seem like there's nothing particularly new or noteworthy about this version?" Unfortunately, my statement was a bit too accurate about the game. According to an IGN preview, it appears that the sequel is barely a sequel at all. The game features the same graphics engine and the same
courses as the original launch title. Yes, there's a few new stuff: there's 10 new tracks, and two new gameplay modes. But with longer load times, is this "sequel" really worth the additional $20-30 it'll cost over the original? I'd say no. If Namco's going to rip-off gamers like that, IGN has it completely right:

"There's no word on a US release. That may be for the better though."

Ridge Racer 2 intro and gameplay video

There's something about the PSP and its great affinity towards CG women. The Ridge Racers series is famous for the CG model Reiko Nagase posing seductively on top of the cars. The upcoming Ridge Racers 2 is no different, as it continues the tradition. This video showcases some of the gameplay from the upcoming sequel and also shows you the sleek intro sequence as well. The game hasn't been announced for US release yet, but will be available in Japan in September.

Ridge Racers 2... 2... 2...

Riiiiiidge Racer is coming back to PSP. It launched as one of the more popular options during the PSP launch, which led to its inevitable sequel. The commercial's pretty nifty, but doesn't it seem like there's nothing particularly new or noteworthy about this version? It hasn't been announced for a US release yet, but it's screeching towards Japan in September.

Real-life Raggio from Ridge Racer


Here’s a concrete example of life imitating art: The Raggio car from Ridge Racer, which was most recently seen on the PSP, actually exists! I’m not much for car specs and all that jazz, but I know what I like when I see it. And Daddy definitely, definitely like.
