Rage Racer shatters the standards of PlayStation racing, and has industry insiders scurrying to their Thesaurus’ for new speed descriptors. This is a whole new engine, chassis and shocks; shocks coming, of course, at the expense of your central nervous system. But enough hype. You’ve got to play this bad-boy to believe it. Then you’ll see why Game Fan insists, “you must obtain Rage Racer as soon as humanly possible.

Summary Text






Game Play Preview of Rage Racer


  • The neGcon icon on the back of the case uses the European Part number.
  • Rage Racer is the only console released Ridge Racer game that does not use “Ridge” in the title.
  • Your hood decoration has a secondary function – whatever you design there will also appear on various in-game billboards.
  • Besides bumping into each other, you’ll occasionally see CPU cars bump into each other, especially if you’re in the middle of them.
  • The game’s back insert cites there are “11 Circuits” to race. This breaks down into Class 1 through 5 Forward, the same 5 reversed, and then the mythical 6 Class.
  • If you snag a Gold Trophy in all first 5 Classes (Meaning a Gold for the entire circuit), you’ll unlock a hidden 12th song in the music player.
