Ridge Racer 7 is the seventh console installment in the Ridge Racer series of racing games, released on PlayStation 3. The game has around 40 cars, many of which return from Ridge Racer 6 and the PSP incarnations of the game. There are also 22 courses, available in forward, reverse and mirror mode. The game runs at 1080p resolution and at 60 frames per second. It also features Dolby Digital 5.1 surround sound and free online gameplay via the PlayStation Network.

The game was first unveiled at the 2006 E3 event in a teaser trailer, and the first trailer of game footage was shown at the 2006 Tokyo Game Show.

Like many other games in the series, it features a full motion video opening that stars Reiko Nagase.

The game has since been re-issued under Sony's "Platinum" and "The Best" budget lines.

A patch was made available in October 2010 titled "Ridge Racer 7 3D License Version" that enables Ridge Racer 7 to be played in 3D.

So good, so addictive. But holy fuck it's so difficult as well.
A prime example of a game that's easy to learn but hard to master, you better get the hang of ultimate charges when you reach the extreme battle races. Has great music, graphics and rly nice performance for a PS3 launch title too!
It's a very frustrating game though, which is why I won't give it a perfect rating. The extreme battles require absolute PERFECTION from you and it can make the game feel very annoying and repetitive. Oh well, I reached 90% completion in the grand prix at least so I guess I did have a decent run.

yes you can go perpendicular to the road and drift at 120mph and yes this is one of the best racing games ever

Best entry of the series along with BGM (dominates in every way compared to rr type 4)

A lot of fun and an extremely polished experience, easily one of the best looking games on the PS3. It's nothing to really celebrate, doesn't do anything particularly new or interesting, but is a solid experience I see myself returning to someday.

sadly one of the last, but one of the best. Progression feels a little confusing at times, but it's so gorgeous at 1080p 60fps at launch day on the PS3 I don't mind at all
