How do you follow the best racing game on a home console system? With one even better. Ridge Racer Revolution is a new milestone to which other games will have to shoot for. Take the first game, add a more diverse trak, faster action, more cars, a better opponent AI, a stellar link-up mode with several track choices and you have a real winner. The cars ranged from average speeds, to blinding. Even race car drivers might have a hard time keeping up with this one. Add an analog joystick or steering wheel and you have something far more addictive than cocaine. A must have for any PlayStation owner, or racing fan.

Ridge Racer Revolution is very much like Ridge Racer, only better. RRR is an impressive sequel to Ridge Racer. The graphics are sharper and more detailed. The music is excellent, and the announcer has a whole slew of comments to make on your driving. With the standard controller the game play is very good. However, with an analog controller, those turns should be a lot easier to make. Again you have a whole slew of cars to choose from if you can beat the little game at the beginning. As you progress through RRR, you can earn 3 special cars, 2 black ones and the incredible white car. You have an all new track to work with plus as you get further in the game you can drive it in reverse, open up the first track from Ridge Racer, and drive it in reverse too. The best addition to the game is the rear view mirror which makes it a lot easier to block your opponents. This game is really awesome when you link up two PlayStations and race with a friend. A great bonus that shoots this game past its predecessor.
