PSP Ridge Racer on Vita - is it good?

8 replies 177 views Edited Mar 14, 2012

Hey, has anybody tried the PSP version of Ridge Racer on the vita?   Is it good?

I am new to the Playstation world and have not played the PSP version.  It got great reviews on Amazon, and since the Vita version seems to be a big huge FAIL, I was thinking of just getting the PSP version.

What do you guys Think?

Cheers,

Pablo "Loving the Vita" Picasso

if your a serious racing fan like me, just buy the gran turismo psp version.. much better than any ridge racer period. has time trials, single races, drifting, car dealerships, driving challenges and its quite fun and addicting escpecially drifting. just my suggestion.

Got both, and if you can stand the pixels the PSP version is awesome. Scored 9 on IGN if you can find the review...

The Vita game is great for the things I care most about, which is tight control and the actual racing experience. The PSP has the advantage where it gives you a World Tour to engage in and way more custom options, but it doesn't look or sound half as good. I was up too late until 2am last night locking up my turns on the Vita version so obviously I think it's better than the crap reviews for the prototype 30 framerate version that came out earlier in EU and Japan.

I bought Ridge Racer Vita yesterday and really like it!  It looks great and is fun to play: I am really surprised at the crappy reviews for it.  Online racing is a lot of fun but kind of laggy.  Also bought the Ridge Racer PSP game last week and that is a blast too.

^^ That's what I'm sayin! Seems like everyone is just feeding into the hype about not having enough tracks and not even counting the added new ones or the other improvements. I just hope Namco doesn't stop making DLC because the racing action is outstanding.

I absolutely love this game. If you like the gameplay of the RR series, then I would highly recommend spending the $25. There are currently 11 cars (if you include the 2 hidden cars) and 5 tracks, and I just noticed on the Namco site there will be another car and track available on 3/27 as well as a Silver Pass download in April.
