Critic Reviews for Riptide GP: Renegade
Riptide GP: Renegade is a decent racer where the vehicles handle really well. The majority of the tracks look good and are fun to race in. However some of the elements put in to make the game harder for players stick out really obviously, like being the sole target of police vehicles. The campaign becomes a grindfest and the online is quiet at launch. There is only one event option which may get stale quickly due to the limited amount of tracks. If you’re looking for an arcade racer then Riptide GP: Renegade is a decent enough choice.
Interesting and fun, Riptide GP: Renegade is a show of simplicity well cooked that adapts the game to the hybrid console with all its racing possibilities, multiplayer and also a new control system.

Niggles aside, Renegade's lengthy Career Mode and local and online multiplayer support all make for a robust package.
Riptide GP Renegade is a solid follow-up. I really wish they would tweak the difficulty though, as it stands it gets far too difficult, far too quickly in career mode. This stunts progression, and makes continuing on a real grind. However, if you are like me and simply love the wave racing genre, this is yet another solid entry in a category we get far too few games in.
Riptide GP: Renegade is a masterclass in how to take a good concept and execute it well.
The soundtrack goes well with the pace of the game, and the upbeat electronic vibe is present the whole way through.
Without ever being spectacular, Riptide GP(R) provides a good value, highly enjoyable water-based racing experience that doesn’t outstay its welcome.
