What makes Ridge Racer 6 fun is that it's a very social game. It's a game you can bring out where everyone is going to have fun, even if they finish in last place. It has the ability to be a game where novices can enjoy the thrill of the drift while experienced players can enjoy linking nitrous boosts together. It's easy to pick up and play and has a smooth increasing progression in difficulty. You get better at the game the more you play, but it's never frustrating. A simple survey of RR6 reviews from our colleagues at 1UP.com and Gamespot show that they've complained about graphics not looking "next-gen" enough, the lack of "user customization," and the repetitive announcer. These flaws of Ridge Racer 6 are exactly the features we talked about in the previous page: variety and graphics.
