Despite some early concerns, Namco's decision to bestow one of its most prized titles - Riiiiidge Racer - upon FlatOut creator Bugbear was a good idea. If nothing else, the Finnish studio has attempted to whip the ailing racing franchise back into relevancy with a new-found focus on vehicular action and manic destruction.The realisation of that ideal, however, is decidedly wonky, though at least it's more ambitious than the execrable mess of Ridge Racer on the Vita. Bugbear's attempt to incorporate a kitchen sink set of features, including a fully-fledged track editor, has clashed against other constraints - such as time, talent and budget - to result in a racing game rich in quantity and ideas but sorely lacking in virtues.Some conceptual marketing puff establishes you as a member of The Unbounded, a group of upmarket chavs with a penchant for some extremely fast cars and reducing the city of Shatter Bay to rubble and ashes. What's got them so irked is beyond me (Osborne's nefarious pasty tax, perhaps?) but Bugbear's clearly been inspired by the ghosts of other, better racers.
Ridge Racer Unbounded: multiplayer aims to get the series back on track.Where other racing games have lately looked to reinvent the multiplayer wheel with a variety of new modes, Ridge Racer: Unbounded is keeping it simple - this is a classic set of racing modes with a boost mechanic and a pleasant aesthetic sheen of jazzy colours.On your bread-and-butter Domination mode, you do a few laps of the course against other players in a bid for 1st place. Unbounded's Power gauge - charged via drifting - gives you the ability to smash through select bits of scenery to create shortcuts, as well as frag other players if you collide when powered up.Corners are taken with tandem application of drift and brake, and the delicate handling and aggressive engines ensure counter-steer is a necessity more often than it is not. Beginner players will often find themselves taking corners with either excessive under or oversteer, too, and the fussy steering will only start to make sense after a few hours behind the wheel.Though, at the same time, I'm not convinced that the handling model feels right - both the jack-of-all-trades Wolfram GS and the fast-but-wobbly Hurricana CX seemed to lack a necessary weight.
