This game actually looks kinda fun

Obvious inspiration from Trackmania. I'd like to see a Jeff-look of this.

I don't think the GB crew is too fond of Ridge Racer after the recent release on the PS Vita, which they said needs tons of downloading and DLC to even become close to a full game.

But yes, that does look cool.

EDIT: Also, "Unbounded?" Not questioning you, questioning the name.

The game looks ok, fun even. The problem it is not a ridge racer. Nothing about the game is anything close to ridge racer and its disgusting they use the name to carry the weight of this game.

Apparently the game is really good.  The main thing I'm hearing is that this game is not a ridge racer game, although it has the name.  EDGE gave it a 9/10 and right now it's got a high 80's rank on metacritic.com.  I'm going to pick it up after work and check it out.

It's kind of disgusting what Namco has done with the ridge racer series. At least this has the benefit of not being a complete rehash

Bugbear has a really good history of making fun racing games. That's all I can say for now.

You really think the intent was to use the RR name to carry the game? RR is not a well regarded series as of late. I also think Bugbear are well known enough for that not to be the case. Flatout UC was a well regarded game.

I think it's about time Namco REALLY looke at this series and said..."okey...we need to change things, A LOT" and it looks like they did. Ridge Racer was rote as hell. Can I still drift in this game? Then I think it deserves to be called Ridge Racer. On the other hand. What game does not allow drifting today? See, it's not that Ridge Racer is just bad and stagnate as hell, it have been left in the dust by games that does what is does but does more and better. It is nothing remarkable to do crazy drifts anymore. I welcome this change.

Reviews all over the place on this one. Looks more like Blur mixed w/ Burnout to me.
