Featuring electronic music (and the ability to add your own playlist to the background music), high-speed racing action with weapons and extensive multiplayer, this was slated to be a hit with fans, but became far, far more.
Namco has a long history of showcasing Sony’s gaming console’s power with their Ridge Racer series. Both the PSOne and the PS2 have had their share of Ridge Racer that has shared a mixed relationship with the general gaming public.
