About This Game

Bikes from the world's most beloved motorcycle manufacturers, breathtaking races, and a round-the-world trip taking in 15 different locations: all this and more in the new videogame: RIDE.

Choose from over 100 bikes from the manufacturers that have made motorcycling history, and set off on the World Tour. Challenge rivals at Motorcycle Festivals divided into three different track typologies: from the thrills of the GP Tracks, through the beautiful landscapes of the Country Tracks, and all the way to the challenge of the City Tracks. Race after race, customise and improve your bike in order to work your way up the World Rankings and become the fastest biker in RIDE . As well as the World Tour, players can compete in a variety of different game modes: Quick Race, Time Trial, Split Screen, and online with up to 12 players in the Quick Race and in the Championship.

WORLD TOUR:

The World Tour is RIDE's main game mode, where you can participate in various Festivals around the world, divided into various categories: Superbike 1000, Supersport 600, Historic Championships, and so on. Each Motorcycle Festival features a variety of race modes: single race, championship, time trial, track day, drag race, and endurance. Each race influences your reputation, and therefore your position in the World Ranking of RIDE players.

MULTIPLAYER:

Up to 12 players can compete in the online game modes, including quick race and championship; you'll be able to challenge a friend with the split screen feature, and all the results of every race will be recorded on the Leaderboards.

BIKES:

Choose from a roster of the most beautiful bikes currently in production, and from the models that have made motorcycling history, with bikes from 14 of the world's leading manufacturers. There are more than 100 bikes in RIDE , with displacements ranging from 250 to 1,299 cc, manufactured between 1987 and 2015. Each bike has its own specific mechanical and dynamic characteristics (power, weight distribution, engine architecture, and so on) that have been integrated with a new game physics specifically developed for Ride that allows players, gamepad in hand, to really appreciate the different dynamic behaviour of each model.

CUSTOMISATION:

RIDE lets you choose from a vast range of gear from the leading specialist clothing manufacturers, allowing you to personalise your rider from top to toe: choose from over 100 items and 400 colour schemes!
Your bike is completely customisable, in accordance with two component categories: appearance and performance. Choose from a variety of models of mirrors and wheel rims, or improve performance on the track by mounting a racing exhaust and remapping the ECU. These are just some of the components that you can customize choosing from a catalogue of more than 100 parts.

TRACKS:

RIDE features 15 different circuits in the various locations where the Motorcycle Festivals of the World Tour take place.

Country Tracks: mountain passes, countryside, and natural parks, faithfully reproduced from the real world.

City Tracks: circuits winding through the city, with long straights and tight corners that really challenge your riding reflexes.

GP Tracks: actual racetracks, chosen to enhance the sensations of riding in the seat of the bike, and being able to push it right to the edge.

The renewed Evolving Track System means that the track evolves lap after lap, guaranteeing improved grip along the rubbered-in ideal trajectory as it gets darker and darker as more bikes pass over it. This really helps push you towards a clean riding style, and helps you learn the braking points and the correct trajectories by studying the behaviour of your rivals.

My new rule is any game that involves jumping through firey hoops to get working automatically gets a bad review. This is one of those such cases. Kinda like GTA IV.

There really are no excuses. There's hundreds of games that come out all the time that work fine on all types of computers... There is no reason one should have to go on a hunt for the Holy Grail just to get the framerate normal and eliminate input lag. No reason at all.

The racing itself can be fun, albeit difficult. I was first turned onto this game from the PS4 demo (and should I have stuck with the console version?) then got it on here and the headache started.

And once you do get it running it's got some design flaws. I don't usually complain about loading screens but why is there the need to interupt the loading screen to ask you to confirm the bike you want to ride that you already confirmed earlier, just to go back to the same loading screen for the same amount of time again? And this is on top of the other loading screen that doesn't look like a loading screen that can make one wonder if their game is frozen up.

Anyway, just take a look at the reviews... Apparently there's also some save problems and other issues running rampant that haven't been fixed. This game's a mess and I would recommend avoid or stick with the console version or try a cracked version (I ain't afraid to say that in cases like this cause this is ridiculous).

Bought this game when it went on sale from 40 to 10 bux. Game is not worth the 10 bux I paid. Contolls are absolutley horrible. Driving and races are way to hard. You can be driving at 2 mph and bump into a guard rail and it will throw your off your bike?!?!? You basically have to complete each race with perfection in order to win. They over thought this one, they took the fun out of racing.

Its far from perfect but still manages to be quite an enjoyable racing experience. The bikes are exquisitely detailed and theres a sizable variety of them ranging from 80s oldschool street bikes to modern electric superbikes, most of which can be modified and same goes for the rider, the tracks on the other hand... not so much, however they're still well designed and are really fun to race around in.

Now what truly appeals to me with RIDE is how racing is only half the battle, the other half is actually wrestling with G-forces and keeping your rider on the bike to actually race, which adds a whole new level of depth to the experience. Knowing that if you're not gentle enough on the throttle or too hard on the brakes your rider is just gonna get launched into orbit, so finesse is a must. Compared to MotoGP(same studio) I'd say the physics are a lot more complex and feel way more realistic although it could've used some more polish in that department.

The biggest issue with this game to me is how it feels like the game suffers from some occasional frametime lag, my rig is nothing fancy(2500k/gtx760/8gb) but it still manages to run [at the expense of a bad comparison] any codesmasters game like a dream with consistent frametimes and those games tracks' level of graphical of fidelity is by far superior, so after turning off some modern fluff settings i still had to tone it down even further in order to minimize the frametime lag. Another issue I have with this is how the AI racers seem a bit too rigid, and by that I mean they dont care if you're right in front of them, they wont bother braking and will just plow right through you if you happen to be in their way, it doesn't always happen but it does happen. Another minor but none the less irritating little problem I have is how the mirrors aren't actual mirrors and just look stupid in first person view, luckily you can take them off and pretend like you're just doing it for the sake of aerodynamics.

Really this review just made me realize how much I want codesmasters to make this exact type of game on their engine, but until that day there's RIDE.

It's a lot of fun with a good amount content plus the DLC however it does suffer from quite a few issues... There is no proper livery editor which isn't really a big problem definetely not game-breaking but it would be nice to at least have the option, the ai even on the hardest difficulty are a breeze and when you get the opportunity to race side by side with them they are pretty much brain-dead... Unless if you are well and trully ahead of them under brakes going into a corner they will turn into you and just try to follow the racing line. I personally had A LOT of issues trying to run the game properly until after about a couple of hours of searching and testing I managed to find the right settings and was finally able to play the game but even then the gameplay felt choppy and not particurarly pretty. Even with everything turned on the game doesn't look great. Finally online is a ghost town... Basically no one is playng and it is a shame because the game isn't bad but it is unrefined. However it's only the first installment in this series of games so I think I can give the devs a break because the game in it's core is quite a lot of fun and definetely worthy of my money!

Amazing, hom much potential is wasted with that game.
The first glance is guite nice. Grafx look nice, but a closer look reveals, the background details are pretty poor. No intro video, no fancy visual efx. But, that's ok. Driving feels very good. Probably the most realistic motor bike driving expierence in a game for me so far. Compared to MotoGp15 the sounds did get a little better, at least the cbr1000 sounds like ok and gives the player a slight feeling of having 200 Hp under your balls hammering. Unfortunately the Ducati 1199 sounds like an c64 emlation on an iphone 3. As many players mentioned before, it's all about the importance of realistic sounds, and that's what have not been taking care of with RIDE. The game is fun though "ok to play" , but definately needs some polishing.
The bikes look awesome. Tuning and setting is pretty cool.
The menu structure seems unfinished and buggy.
No game servers or other players of online game available when I tried.
No website available (Ride 2 only) Couldn't find any official info of this 1 year old game.
No updates!

Worth 40€? I don't know. The game could be so much better with 5 % more development.
It's actual state is more like a 15 -20 Euro beta. But right now, it's still the best game on the market.

Let's see, what Ride 2 Demo brings us.

First of all the game looks nice. It presents a lot of options in terms of customization, but only just touches the surface in that area. The physics are below average. Bikes doesnt react to surroundings correctly, and the man himself desperately needs a ragdoll effect, which cant be that hard to make since we've seen that in lesser good games like Flatout, Flatout 2, Motocross game from 10-15 years ago. Milestone doesnt have any real competition on the Motorcycle game market and therefore do not feel the need to up their game at all. Same physics and controls as the last 2-3 MotoGP games. Poor network options - that rarely works, and when you succeed in connection to your friends, the game lags out and people disconnect with each other leaving you alone with bots.

The WORST thing about MotoGP through ALL the years and now also RIDE is the quality of sound. Computer sounds, made by what obviously must be people who havent heard the real thing IN REAL LIFE. The sounds these machines make are worse than car games 15 years ago. You have the rights to MotoGP, you dont have any competition - GO out and record the ♥♥♥♥ing machines to deliver it to us when we game it. Most of the purchases unfortunately done of this game, is by people riding a motorcycle, so we KNOW the sounds. My first machine was a Yamaha MT07 with an IXIL exhaust on. That doesnt exist in the game but Akrapovic does. Its looooud like a beast with Akra on IRL - but ingame it sounds like the engine sound comes from an iPhone.

Disgustingly bad :).

If you can come to terms with having to mute your game, because having no sound will annoy you less than having the sound on?! - then its STILL almost a waste of money.

Now RIDE 2 is on the way. People are ALREADY in the comments to RIDE's trailers and also RIDE 2's trailers writing "WE WANT REAL SOUNDS" - if they ignore us, us being the ones who pay for the damn thing, one more time.... i HOPE it will have consequences. Or at least give another studio the ide to start making Superbike or MotoGP bike games again!

STAY AWAY FROM ALL MILESTONE GAMES. THEY NEVER FIX THEIR CRAP, AND BEEN DOING SO FOR YEARS.

MotoGP14, MXGP, RIDE are all games awaiting patches, and none in sight.

And more important, don't buy MOTOGP15 that will be released soon. They need to go bankrupt asap and stop ripping people.

10/10 I would trade this 55$ crap for any 5$ game if I could.

Do you like loading screens?
Do you like random fps drops that will put you off an make you crash?
Do you like racing the same 4 or 5 tracks with the same 4 or 5 gimmicky game modes?

All this an more in ride the game!

WARNING!!!!!!!!

Ride will delete your saved data at some point. It's guaranteed. The game autosaves, and you can't manually save. You can create a rider, play a quarter, maybe a half way through the season, and the next time you start the game, EVERYTHING will be lost. Like to start over from the beginning a hundred times? If so, this is the game for you. Otherwise, STAY AWAY!

Ride Review - see under Ride discussions

As a keen bike owner, racer & gamer, previously having played Super Bikes Riding Challenge, I am not very happy with Ride. I have done a more lengthy review of Ride which you can find under the Ride discussions where I have discussed only some of all the problems with this game. I have since also started a Ride protest page which reveals other peoples frustrations with this game under same, which most probably like all the others in my Steam unplayable games library, will most likely not be fixed. I strongly advise against buying this or other games on Steam until such time Steam are able to support them properly
