Eurogamer has posted their review of Ridge Racer 6, giving it an 8 out of 10.
"It's a difficult game to mark. Newcomers probably won't find the initial game so boring, but then I'm not a newcomer so I can't comment. Me, I can't really forgive it completely. There's more excellent-game here than there is tedious-game, but even when you get past the opening stages it still takes a little while to settle down. Some races are incredibly tricky, and take time to beat, but then the next in the series might tumble on the first go. There's also the sense that the nitrous is a license for the AI to cheat; I'd love to be able to monitor whether they're actually having to earn their boosts the same way I am, but even though it's debatable my gut says they're not, which doesn't take the shine off victory but certainly does piss you off when it's the main cause of defeat."
