Just bought this and it is EXACTLY like the PSP version! Especially with the digital pad (control option 4).

It just takes some readjusting to the drift system, as I have not played Ridge Racer for a while.

In fact I have already bought the $2.99 track expansion pack (I felt the game come with enough vehicles, so I will wait on it)

Ridge Racer fans should get this now as it is the real deal with the update!

For me this game is the best Racing game for the iDevices. This update almost makes the game perfect. It's a shame that this game isn't doing well in the appstores. They should be more in touch with the media/game sites.

I love this game!

Yup no1 racing game:

1: 1 of the best graphic(models, shaders, reflections) only window reflections on buildings could be added:P. Its the only race game where the cars actually reflect EVERYTHING around them. Not just the fake reflection like on all the other racers out there.

2: gameplay is awesome
3: controls are no1
4: sense of speed is perfect
5: the sound is good
6: more than enough content(bought car and mapoacks)

Yes it is alot better now! The inital release was pretty shoddy. Now with 2-3 updates it is very nice.

Darn, I knew I should have got it when it was $1! I guess I will have to wait for the next, inevitable Namco sale.

I've not played RR4 so hesitated to respond. I've played the PSP and DS versions and it was the PSZp version that got me hooked.

The idevice version is very good and even much better with the d pad update. Missing is a career mode where you progress and unlock faster modes. There is unlocking to ronan's the game plays well. If you like RR and want a portable version (and are not toting around a psp) then drop $2.99 on this.
