Is It Any Good?

Ridge Racer 3D is a great, solid title for any racing fan. The series has a long history dating back several years, but this is the first time it has been presented in 3D, making it a good addition to any gamer's library. The visuals are fantastic but do not push the envelope of the 3DS's capabilities, likely because it's a launch title and developers are still growing acquainted with the hardware and its capabilities. Nevertheless, it's proof that racing and 3D go well together.

Online interaction: This game uses the 3DS StreetPass feature to allow players to swap "ghost" data for specific races. No personal information is exchanged.
