Ridge Racer is one of the most legendary racing series on consoles, especially for PlayStation devices, and
Ridge Racer Slipstream ($3) does a pretty good job of translating the experience to touch. Most importantly, it keeps the game’s distinctive feel, putting a big emphasis on powersliding around turns as you speed through an array of slick circuits.
While not as large of an experience as the console games, Slipstream gives you a lot to work with for just three bucks: a dozen customizable rides, 20 tracks, more than 100 events in the career mode, and live online multiplayer action. If you’ve ever loved a Ridge Racer in the past, then Slipstream should satisfy—and if you don’t know the series, well, it’s a fun ride.
