'Ridge Racer Slipstream' Review - Arcade Racing Comfort Food






Just recently, an old tradition in gaming was broken for the first time ever. PlayStation hardware was released, and a Ridge Racer title did not accompany it. It's completely understandable, however unfortunate it might be. Ridge Racer just hasn't been putting butts in the seats like it used to in the old days. A lot of that is down to heavy competition in the genre from games offering a staggering amount of content compared to Ridge Racer, along with declining interest in the racing genre in traditional markets. After a disastrous new approach on the Vita, where a barebones version was sold for a discounted, but still high, price with the remaining content sold as IAP or offered as free DLC, it looked like Ridge Racer might finally be headed for the scrapyard.
It seems that Namco hasn't quite given up yet, however. The racing genre has found a surprising second wind on mobile devices, with games like Real Racing 3 and Asphalt 8: Airborne enjoying high popularity. The generally lower budgets of mobile games also make the value proposition work out a bit better, I imagine. It's my guess that these are among the reasons we're seeing Namco take another kick at the can with Ridge Racer Slipstream , their latest installment in the long-running franchise. This isn't the first time iOS gamers have seen a release in this series, and there might be a bad taste in the mouth of anyone whose sole experience with the series is 2009's Ridge Racer Accelerated , but I feel like Namco has read the market a little better this time.
That last version had a number of problems at launch. Very little content was included in the base game, creating a situation where players were essentially paying for a demo. There was no career mode to speak of, the controls were initially limited to tilt steering, and it performed very poorly on the devices of the time, in spite of using relatively low quality assets. To Namco's credit, they ended up adding quite a bit to the game via updates, but Accelerated still never quite managed to get things the way fans expect from a Ridge Racer title.
Ridge Racer Slipstream is a more savvy product, reflecting the modern state of the App Store in some good ways and some bad. It surpasses the previous title in any meaningful way you could think up, and I think fans are going to be pretty happy with it. One major specter of the past remains, however. This game has some performance issues, especially on older devices. If you're using an iPhone 4 or its equivalent, I wouldn't even bother. The game is like a slideshow. On newer devices, it runs well enough, but it really ought to be smoother than it is. The assets here seem to be the same as the Vita version, so everything looks great, at least, even if the framerate has issues at times. I did experience a couple of crashes while playing on my iPhone 5S, so hopefully Namco's on the ball with patches like they usually are.

The other bit of bad news is that, as is becoming increasingly standar...
