Ridge Racer V (RRV), the fifth game in the Ridge Racer series on the Sony PlayStation, became one of the launch games for the Sony PlayStation 2. It features 7 tracks and 21 vehicles, with 5 modes of play.
Racing on RRV subdivides into different race formats.
Grand Prix has two formats: Standard and Extra. The GP names depend on the difficulty you select (Easy, Medium or Hard) at the start of the game.
In Standard, the player races factory stock cars from the various manufacturers, racing in 4 races. There is one GP in the Standard class.
A special race is unlocked after the player fulfils certain requirements. The Pac-Man GP runs with the iconic Namco character Pac-Man in a roadster and the 4 Ghosts Blinky, Pinky, Inky and Clyde on scooters.
Duel mode is a boss battle mode in the game. Bosses are mostly known by the letter R ('Rival') next to their name and 1st place records (separately) in both Beginner and Advanced class Time Attack records.
In order to challenge a Boss, both time records need to be beaten with using both Beginner and Advanced class cars with the manufacturer of your choice (as aforementioned in the 'Regular Cars' section). After all 4 bosses are defeated in Duel mode, Battle Royal mode is unlocked, allow you to choose any boss cars and challenge all 4 bosses in a race (including ones you have selected).
The motto for this boss battle mode is "There are only two kinds of racers in this battle: a winner and a loser".
