Product: Ridge Racer Type 4
Developer: Namco Bandai Games
Publisher: Namco Bandai Games
Format: Xperia Play
Namco's Ridge Racer franchise is in a rather odd place right now. With the recent Ridge Racer Vita port failing to get pulses racing and Ridge Racer Unbounded on home consoles looking more like a Burnout clone than a traditional Japanese arcade speed-fest, it would appear that the series is slowly running out of fuel.
If you need to be reminded why this iconic brand is relevant you need only download Ridge Racer Type 4 on your Xperia Play.
Arguably one of the finest entries in the entire rubber-burning lineage, this 1999 offering took the famous power-sliding gameplay and embellished it with more tracks, more cars, and vastly superior visuals.
Cited by many as the best entry in the entire Ridge Racer bloodline, Type 4 effortlessly qualifies as a must-have purchase for any dutiful Xperia Play owner
