Ridge Racer 7

Ridge Racer 7 is the seventh console installment in the Ridge Racer series of racing games, released on PlayStation 3. The game has around 40 cars, many of which return from Ridge Racer 6 and the PSP incarnations of the game. There are also 22 courses, available in forward, reverse and mirror mode. The game runs at 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second. It also features Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and free online gameplay via the PlayStation Network.

The game was first unveiled at the 2006 E3 event in a teaser trailer, and the first trailer of game footage was shown at the 2006 Tokyo Game Show.

Like many other games in the series, it features a Full Motion Video opening that stars Reiko Nagase.

The game has since been re-issued under Sony's 'Platinum' and 'The Best' budget lines.

A patch was made available in October 2010 entitled "Ridge Racer 7 3D License Version" that enables Ridge Racer 7 to be played in 3D.

Ridge Racer 7 Gameplay

As in previous games within the Ridge Racer series, the gameplay centers on high speed circuit racing featuring "drift" handling, where the player slides the car around turns without great loss of speed. New features in this iteration include car body and engine customization which can have an impact on the performance, handling and nitrous boost system of the car. Ridge Racer 7 also actively encourages players to slipstream other cars, whereas previous iterations did not mention that this technique increases speed.

This game sees the "unlimited restarts" return for the first time since Ridge Racer Revolution in 1996, which means the player can restart during the race (including the regular races and the duel races) at anytime if the player is not satisfied with his/her race, race results and so on. Also, the player can re-play the same race series for more points and money.
