Cover Game Articles

Ridge Racer: Where it All Began - Ridge Racer was a natural development of Namco's excellent past work in the racing genre. Let's go right back to the beginning and see where this proud legacy really began.
Ridge Racer Revolution: The One That Would Probably Be DLC Today - Ridge Racer Revolution is Ridge Racer, but more so. It got a certain amount of flak even back in the day for essentially being a glorified expansion pack -- but that doesn't mean it isn't worth playing, particularly with how cheaply you can score a copy these days.
Rage Racer: Point of Divergence - Rage Racer marks the point where the "arcade" and "home" versions of Ridge Racer games really diverged, with the latter surviving the long haul a lot better. But what made Rage Racer stand out in comparison to its predecessors?
Ridge Racer Type 4: Real Racing Roots ’99 - Ridge Racer Type 4 is the quintessential PS1 game and, for many people, the pinnacle of the series. What makes it such a widely beloved game, and does it still hold up well today?
Ridge Racer V: Back to Basics - As a launch title to the powerful new PlayStation 2 and a follow-up to the most well-regarded installment in the series to date, Ridge Racer V had a lot to live up to. How well did it manage that pressure?
Ridge Racer 6: PlayStation Who? - Some five years after the last game, Ridge Racer 6 would once again launch a brand new console. But this time around, it wasn't a Sony platform...
Ridge Racer 7: The New “Revolution” - Ridge Racer 7 returned to Sony after the series' brief dalliance with Microsoft, and once again helped launch a new platform. This time around, though, people found certain aspects of it a little familiar...
Ridge Racer Unbounded: The Black Sheep - The early 2010s were an era of numerous long-running video game franchises aiming to "reboot" themselves -- and Ridge Racer certainly wasn't immune to this trend.
Ridge Racers: The Greatest Hits - If you're looking for an all-time "greatest hits" of the Ridge Racer series, then you'll want to jump on board with the fantastic PSP games. Don't let their status as handheld games put you off; these are among the best the series has to offer.
