I finally got to play Ridge Racer 6. After I played this game, I found that the game is almost like RR7. This game has same gameplay from the fifth game, but with different controls. RR7 is little bit different than this game. This game isn’t on the other PlayStation consoles. This one is only on the XBOX 360. This one was the XBOX 360 launch titles that they released when the XBOX 360 first came out. The graphics in this game looks more like a PS2 game instead of 360 game. Great details on the cars but not the game itself. It looks blurry and looks more like Gran Turismo 4 graphics. I don’t why NAMCO made the graphics more like a PS2 game. Did they were rushing or in a hurry to release the game. The gameplay is good but in away. The gameplay runs more like RR5 but with nitros.

Ace Combat 4: Shattered Skies is fun game for the PS2. This game will make you dizzy, if you play for a long time. This game is like a Japanese version of a Tom Clancy novel. This game is set in the fictional world of Strangereal, and spans the years 2004-2005, and this person talks about his story of when he was kid. So, this game is mostly about his story.

This is the first Ace Combat game that I played in the series. There are anime cutscenes in this and they look really good on a computer screen. I wish it ran like a anime show instead stopping it. The graphics do look similar to Ridge Racer V, but I think this game used the same design from Ridge Racer V. They almost look the same and they both look more detailed. It is Namco game, so it probably is.

Soul Calibur V

Soul-Calibur-V-PS3-Game-CoverSoul Calibur V is 17 years later after Soul Calibur IV. Soul Calibur V has really good graphics and really good gameplay. This game is about a young man name Patroklos finding his older sister named Pyrrha, and joining together, they will destroy the evil sword named Soul Edge. Patroklos and Pyrrha are the children of Sophitia. Sophitia is from the last four Soul Calibur games. You don’t see her in this game.

The characters in this game are mostly new, but some of the old characters from Soul Calibur IV are in this game, too. There a guest character in this game and the guest character is named Ezio. Ezio is in Assassin’s Creed II. He really a good character to play. In Soul Calibur IV, you have the Star Wars characters but, Ezio is better than Darth Vader, because Ezio will stab Darth Vader in the back. I don’t know about that guy from Star Wars: Force Unleashed. He will be good fighting the Templars and destroying Nightmare or the people that want Soul Edge that badly.

Ridge Racer V

Ridge Racer V is the first game on the PlayStation 2. The graphics looks much better than the PSone version and the Nintendo 64 version. The gameplay is a lot smoother than the PSone and Nintendo 64. This is not an Arcade game, not any more. This game has a story line in it. This game is about racing the 5 tournaments. You have to come in first place in each race you are in. The controls are easier than in the PSone version. This is my second favorite Ridge Racer game. I like to play a lot.

I love playing this game because I like to drift. You will get to drift quite a bit in this game. I love drifting. Drifting is a more fun than a driving tour. The graphics is way better than the PSone. The PSone graphics are too blocky. I love the details of the cars and I like the winning girl in this game. You get the winning girl in the opening. The winning girl is not 2D any more. You get to see her in 3D. This winning girl looks like one those female characters from Soul Calibur. Well, this game is done by NAMCO, and NAMCO did Soul Calibur as well.

Ridge Racer

Ridge Racer is classic racing game. The game came out around 1993. It was in the arcade back than. The game went on PlayStation around 1994 in Japan and came to US around 1995. It one of the first racing games went on PlayStation. In this game there a few racing tracks and few cars. There no save game in this game. This game is really hard. This game is not easy like the other racing games we play today. Ridge Racer was been around before Need for Speed. When I played this game, I had to keep on playing until I got first place. I got first place on the first 2 racing tracks but the others tracks I’m still trying to get first place. This game have a first person and a third person POV.
