A good sound atmosphere is to a driving game what wheels are to a car – that goes to say that the noises that a developer have chosen to cause havoc in your ear drums are pretty, damn important.
The last time we got a sneak peek at some Ridge Racer Unbounded gameplay was a few days ago when Namco Bandai released a trailer of what it would be like to have a play around in Ridge Racer Unbounded’s city creator mode.
