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.

I wanted to like this game, but I can't. It has fundamental flaws that make it unenjoyable for me.

This is a shame because the content (the tracks, bikes, music etc) is all really good. I also got decent enough performance (outside of the load times).

The worst problem is the handling. I think I figured out what the main 'cause' is, and this seems systemic of all Milestone bike games I've played:

The tyres float across the track. You can see this even when not moving. Just lean left and right and look at the back tyre, it glides right and left respectively across the surface of the track when it should remain in the same place. This effect only gets worse at higher speeds, with the tyres gliding left or right by almost a whole foot when leaning.

This isn't just the contact patch moving to the side of the tyre, its the whole tyre sliding as if there is no contact patch, and its not a power slide (it happens all the time), and it seemingly affects all 'modes' (pro and the rest).

Overall this make the bikes horrible to handle.

It's like there is no physics between the tyre and the track surface, as if the pivot point when leaning is somewhere in the middle of the bike instead of at the contact patch of the tyres. This is absolutely not a 'simulation', it's an arcade game (and, imo, a very flawed one at that).

Also, some of the rider animations/'physics' are super messed up (like a crazy 'superman' somersault your rider will do during endos).

And annoyingly there appears to be no practice or quali sessions, so to practice new tracks you have to go to Time Trials, which involves going through a bunch of slow loading menu screens.

The other issues I had are mainly UI related:

- Terrible loading screens throughout the menus.
- Split time between riders not shown in-game.
- Best lap time not shown in game.
- Being unable to change controls in-game (have to exit out to the main menu first).
- Being unable to un-assign controller buttons (so nothing is mapped to it).
- Being unable to assign multiple buttons to single actions.
- Unnecessary confirmation screens, like having to click proceed instead of backing out after a race, or having to re-confirm your bike (when you select a race your bike is already chosen, then get a loading screen, then have to choose your bike again - even if you only have 1 bike, then get another loading screen).
- Game trying to 'sync' and failing, causing an error message you have to confirm. You can switch 'sync' off, but it re-enables itself each time the game is restarted.
- Having to manually re-purchase enhanced oil after every single race.
- A second or two delay between model updating when changing visual stuff (like helmets, leathers, bike parts etc), making custimising a time consuming process.
- Key prompts always being for keyboard keys, even when using a controller.

Some of the above may seen like nit-picking, and it is, but each little inconvenience adds up.

Maybe some of the above has fixes and I missed it, but if I did its not obvious to me where it is.

A real shame. So close to being a great game, yet so far.

So far what I can say about this the game.

"Hard to learn, even harder to master"

All the negativ reviews I read before buying this game haven't happend to me yet. Examples: FPS drop, long loading screens, not that much content. I totally love the game so far and as I said before I have'nt bumped in to stuff I don't like. Sure there are not many tracks but all the tracks look really nice. The details on the bikes are just gorgeous!

I want later on buy myself a real bike and now that I play this game I got so much more respect for all the bikers out there. It's really difficult to control these monsters of a machine ( If all the assist are off).

1 thing I would like to add is a better photo editing.

"will edit this review later on when I have more hours"

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!

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

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!

Milestone set out to succeed playstation 2's Tourist Trophy as the modern motorcycle racing simulator. It however falls very short of that goal. Graphics are last generation quality that somehow taxes modern video cards. The only positive things I could say about the game is it's selection of bikes and gear. But it falls short from there. It feels very shallow and geared towards the casual gamer/racing fan.

Short-comings in on track riding is what ruins the game the most. It is the same arcade style simulation (an oxymoron) engine as the previous MotoGP games. Trailbraking deep is ridiculous and offers no feedback when the front wheel is at it's limit. The reactions of the bike to too much throttle is the same for every bike. Turning into the first corner is always the same even if the race just started and the front tire is still "cold". Then there are the small missing details. No clutch lever use even on the older bikes. The throttle hand works but the brake lever is never used, never mind the rear brake pedal on the right foot. There are ZERO braking markers for non-track circuits. Only occasionally is there a reference point like a tree or a fence, but the rider is left with nothing to judge the approach most of the time.

Then there's the ridiculously aggressive AI that has no qualms of ramming passed you because somehow collisions only penalize one bike. The AI will insist on it's line even if you're in front of it and worst of all will not brake if you plan on braking earlier than it. The AI is also on a very suboptimal line

The set up of the game progression is obviously an afterthought to Milestone as there is NO QUALIFYING SESSION. YOU ARE ALWAYS 8TH. Leaving you with having to deal with the 7 AI-controlled bikes that will slow you down. Then there's the classification of the bikes into races. Some are beyond lazy such as grouping the MT07 with Ducati Monsters and Triumph Street triples because they are all below 700cc. WHAT?! That's a very ignorant way to classify a class race. The MT07 MAY have a corner speed advantage, but that advantage is completely blown away on circuits with straights. Why even bother having that bike? There was no beta testing for this game.

Then there's the customization for looks and performance. The biggest mistake Milestone has in this area is completely ignoring the significance of a rear shock. The whole customization is an insult to any enthusiasts who love to customize their motorcycle's performance capability. Front forks are all stock upgrades. No chance of changing oil, springs, or even valves. Seat height, wheelbase, sprocket size, rotor size, handlebar vs clipons, removal of DOT required parts like lights.

Milestone also only includes a very small amount of tracks despite having the license rights to the tracks in MotoGP15. None of those tracks appear in this game. Some tracks are ridiculously unfit for racing. Miami circuit being the most obvious because the street is too damn narrow .

All in all RIDE is a game made by a casual company meant for the casual gamer. If you want a game that shows the dedication to the sport like Tourist Trophy did for the Playstation 2, you will be very disappointed.

As a motorcyclist and an absolute bike nut I love this game, but I've consistently gotten huge problems with the game crashing mid races, crashing when trying to set up an online race.

If you can live through that then it's a great game and you'll love it.

If you can't deal with that then you're gonna have a bad time.

Poor PC port, AI follow their line even if it means crashing into you, and talk about game crashing which happened once in each hour of gameplay. Hoping Ride 2 makes improvements.

After spending more time trying to run Ride at 60fps than actually playing I gave up, my pc was able to run it easily at 100fps+ but I don't use a monitor that suppots 60+.

Having said that playing it without vsync on and trying to use radeon controls center to lock the framerate it still felt very sluggish. I was hoping for a decent bike game for what I paid on offer but alas absolute buggery.

The configuration settings before running the game don't work, at all. No in game graphics options and the only technical support from the developers is to alt+tab out of game and back in? Seriously?!?

4-5hrs in and I can honestly say I'm having a lot of fun playing Ride , GFX are very nice on m@x settings , the game has a lot to offer bike fans, for best results a beefy PC is required..

I have encountered a few minor issues, mainly with frame ratess , nothing too drastic and easily resolved by some tweaking, but nothing I would even consider game breaking or anywhere close, some early reviewers may have experienced more serious issues , but as it stands Ride is pretty solid for me @ this time.

If your having any framerate issues I would strongly suggest locking the FPS to 60, that worked best for me as in game menu's were exceeding 1000FPS lol , no point in that senario in my opinion.

Some hardcore simmers out there would probably regard Ride as an arcade title, the truth ? Ride on m@x difficulty with all aids and assists off and helmet cam on, Ride is more sim than most PC racing titles available and twice as difficult. physics are spot on and the sense of immersion is for a bike game second to none.

Highly recommended.

9.5/10.

Do not buy, game is broken as hell and was never truly patched. I have played over a hundred of games on my machine without problems but this crap constantly crashes. Moreover, XBOX 360 controller is supported only in theory, I could use it only in menu, not during race.
