Rated 9 out of 10 by Phoenix317 It grows on you
Sure at first this game is a little slow. The series 4 vehicles feel slow and the drifting isn't that hard and neither are the cpu's. Once you get to the series 3 vehicles the game starts to get a little more in teresting and your going to need to fine tune your drifting a little more. Series 2 vehicles, thats where the fun begins. Tight corners come up fast and the cpu's are alot smarter and will do what they can to slow you down. The game just gets better from there, and yes you can turn off the commentary. Controls are simple. I would recommend configuration 2 so you can use the Y button to accelerate and the B button to drift. I just found that more comfortable. The graphics are great as well as the frame rate. If your a big fan of racing games I would recommend you pick this up
Rated 7 out of 10 by SimpleSoldier It takes skill to play.
If you think this is just a another bad racer you are wrong, The game is very well, "Decent" In a way now let me discuss. The gameplay and driving is for experts. You can have lots of cars that i will leave up to you to see if you buy this, The driving controls are for experts at best. Hard to control at times but still fun. The graphics are fairly decent for a 3DS game, And nice at best. The sound i don't really remember to be honest but it's good from what i remember i haven't played in a long time. And the lasting appeal? Mixed, On one hand you have a good game but if you are new at racing games it might be hard for you.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Gergoth Best Racer on 3DS So Far
This game is so much fun. I totally recommend this game to those of you who are trying to decide whether or not to get Ridge Racer or Asphalt. Asphalt just sucks plain and simple. The graphics suck, the frame rate is horrible at times, and it just seems that the publishers just slapped it together. If they had of just kept it in development for some more time it could of been so much better i think. Ridge Racer on the other hand has awesome graphics and a great frame rate. But i do have to say that the levels lack originality from each other. But in the end go with Ridge Racer 3D you will not be dissapointed.
Rated 10 out of 10 by buggy1 Awesome one word
Ridge racer 3D is a eye catcher to racing fans. Its competior on the 3DS asphlat 3D (i also own) is also a great game but it has several issues. This is by far the best serious racing game on 3DS. The 3D effect is very dramatic in game your racing off into the distance that makes the game look more real. The tracks are nice and diverese in differnt places and climates the tracks are the main reason the 3D looks so good.THe cars are high in diversity to. Differnt speeds, handling, drift technic. This game has a nice local card play which my friend and i use often. Great job namco!!
Rated 8 out of 10 by StueyB A Good Racing game.
If you've played any Ridge Racer game then you know what to expect. It's an arcade racer. If you want a fun racing game for the 3DS then this is perfect. The controls are great and the graphics are detailed and run well. The 3D works as well as you can expect. My only complaint is the announcer. At first you don't really care for her but after a while you may find her highly irritating. The are a good amount of tracks and different variations of them. I've put a few hours into this game and have enjoyed them.
Rated 5 out of 10 A racing game. Nothing more, nothing less.
This was my very first 3ds game, and I returned it the next day. Not trying to say it was aweful, but it was just an ordinary racing game. To me, just racing, drifting, NOS'ing got really boring after 1 hour of gameplay. Just wait for the mario kart 3d. Now that will blow you away! ... if you can't wait, then I suggest you go buy mario kart DS while waiting.

After Playing this game how can I ever go back to playing 2D racer games again. I think the 3D graphics are amazing it really sucks you in. If you ever played the ridge racer series than you know the gameplay is arcade play. Easy for beginers but also fun for all serious gamers to enjoy. I will be playing this game for a while. Great first series for the 3DS.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Homerschooler very good
This is very good game. The graphics are good, but not as good as shown above. So far in the game I haven't uunlocked many cars. The 3D works very well and is useful in this game. This game is fun and also a bit challenging it takes a little bit to get the hang of it, but once you do it is very enjoyable.
Rated 10 out of 10 by smithy1 awsome in 3D
i bought the game not only because i love racing games. but because i heard it was awsome in 3D and i was correct. the game rock in 3D it looks like a toy car in the screen. the game is long but overall a game that should be owned even if you dont like racing.
