Overview

 
R: Racing Evolution is what seems like an attempt by Namco to make a Ridge Racer game with more simulation like gameplay, with licensed real world cars such as the Audi TT and the Mazda RX-7, and a story based career mode called Racing Life.
 

Gameplay

 
The main mode of R: Racing Evolution was Racing Life mode, a 14 chapter story based career mode following Rena Hayami, a Japanese Ambulance driver who was recruited as a driver by the GVI coproration, and her rivalry with veteran racer Gina Cavalli. Other game modes include Event Challenge, Time Attack, Arcade, and Versus, with various race types like GT, Rally, and Drag racing.
 
One of the more unique gameplay features is the pressure system. When driving behind another car, a meter will appear above it, the longer you stay behind the car, the more pressure builds up filling the meter. Once the meter reaches a certain point, the driver will make a critical mistake, usually accompanied by a voiceover, allowing you to pass them.
