Ridge Racer Unbounded Gameplay Trailer Urges You to ‘Make Some Noise’

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. JSX staff writer Myles and I were very impressed, in a jaw-creating-dents-in-the-pavement sort of way, so it’s nice for our ears to get a pick me up with this new video that focuses on the sound guys of Ridge Racer Unbounded.

After all, after the driving, the sounds that coincide with your racing can make or break a racing game. There’s nothing more annoying that  cheesy teenybop music pounding round your head when you’re careering round a corner or into the side of an AI-controlled car.

Ridge Racer Unbounded City Creator Trailer Revealed

Ridge Racer Unbounded, created by the developers of the original two FlatOut games and Sega Rally Revo to name a couple, BugBear Entertainment, have made quite a name for themselves and their latest game looks set to be one of their greatest. As seen in this new trailer released by them:

The game looks like a combination of two racing games series that I absolutely love: FlatOut and Trackmania. Fans of those games should really watch this trailer. I myself, have never felt this excited for a creator mode in a game for a long time.

Ridge Racer Unbounded will be out on March 30th 2012 for PS3, Xbox 360 and PC on Steam.
