We played the first Ridge Racer on PS2 ages ago and it was pretty fun. I hope the iOS game offers local multiplayer: Instabuy.

Thread title should say "Slipstream", not "Splitstream".

They should refresh the very first one, make sure controls are tight and touch screen ready (unlike the lousy controls of the first iOS RR and unconfirmed of this is now improved in Slipstream).
