    Just purchased Ridgeracer 6 for the 360. It is absolute garbage, I know I should of tried in demos but it was a bargain ( or so I thought) . The game play is so poor and not a patch on Project Gotham 3.

    just a question have you played any of he other ridge racers? because you cant compare pgr 3 with ridge racer. the reason i say this is. ridge racer has always been an arcade racer that has stupid physics. pgr is more realistic with excessive drift. if you played games like daytona or sega rally.. i think ridge racer was suppose to compeate with those games. but if you play games like pgr or gt4 or any othewr sim. ridge racer will blow chunks.

    I bought this for $10 online, and yes, it is the worst 360 game I have. I only bought it because sometimes stores have deals where you can trade in 2 360 games and get a new one free or for $10. I figured that this and another game could get me a new game pretty much free.

    I figured that since Ridge Racer Type 4 and Ridge Racer V sucked so incredibly badly, I got the demo downloaded a while back and found it was trash. Glad I didn't even spend $10 on it. :D

    I played this game for about an hour, beat probably 15 races in the career, and never got an achievement. I think all 360 games should give, at least a very small one, some type of achievement for starting the game or completing the first part. For people like me who like to play games and try to get the achievements, it gives some immediate return and satisfaction. I don't expect or want all the achievements to be easy, but just something when you start.

    Ridge Racer 7 looks just as bad for ps3...

    Only ridge racer that's been remotely entertaining in the last 10 years was PS1 first Ridge Racer and PSP Ridge Racer... All the rest suck monkey balls..

    Think the only thing thats good is the speed of it, well fast. I think the game could of been enhanced by meaty engine noise and not the hairdryer effect it has.
