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.


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.


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.


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.


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.


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.

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

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.

I've probably sat here for a good few hours wondering whether to leave a positive or negative review. I think I've made my choice now.

This game could of been so much more. I was so excited to play it on PC when I had a go at the Yamaha Demo at the MCN show in London. It was really looking good, but my heart sank when I purchased this at full price and recieved something I wasn't quite expecting.


-Really good customisation of Bike and Rider.
-Pretty realistic movement.
-Has quite a number of my favourite bikes. But I would lke to see some more earlier models.
-Realistic Wheelies! (You don't pull wheelies by pulling on the handlebars like a bicycle.)
-Stunning graphics and models.
-Pretty awesome Multiplayer.


-Only a few early models. Mostly generic modern bikes.
-Only a handful of tracks.
-Very random FPS drops that cause you to crash. (No, it's not my PC. My specs are on my profile.)
-AI literally don't care. They just crash into you all the time.
-Obvious signs of the game being unoptimized. (Laggy menu screen. Long loading times.)
-Community pleads are ignored and unanswered.
-Audio is pretty poor. (Lags when shifting gears up and down. Sometimes doesn't even play a sound, it's just "Brruummm. -Silence.- Brrruuuummmmmm. -Silence.-")
-♥♥♥♥♥♥ DLC. "Yamaha Historical Bikes" = R1, R1, R7. What happend to the FZR 750? Thundercat? FZR 1000? FZS 600?

All in all, I really wish I could thumb it up. But it needs some serious patching, I feel like I'm playing a game in Early Access.

This game is unfinished, and from the looks of it will not be properly supported. despite my pc being above the ideal set up that they recomend, the game will not hold 30fps on the lowst settings and its framerate is all over the place, the physics that they claim are "realistic/simulator quality" feel like a joke compared to that of old ps2 games, the front breaks never lock up even if you turn in fully and mash the breaks all the way. then we get to the ai which is terible and lazy, they hardly holde a proper line and do not respect you, they will break late every corner and then some, and somehow be able to out accelrate you on the exit of every corner unless you use proper early breaking and early acceleration, (this is on the default easy setting in the first set of cups) the ability to change setups involvs using sliders which have arbitrary numbers between 1-5, never giving you enough values to properly tune the bikes to the course, and most of them fail to offer enough of a change even at max deviation compared to what they should provide. after looking up the game and its forum, I can clearly see that the developers will not support this game, nor do they care about its success and as such I can not recomend this to anyone. if this was a early access game I might be willing to give this a wait until release, but, as its already out. skip it.

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!

I personally haven't had any problems with this game besides when you reach #1 in the rankings. My save got deleted by then came back one day and has been fine ever since. Sure the physics aren't the greatest and the races get kinda stale after a while, but nonetheless, still a fun racing game.

I have not had any long wait times (on my HDD) and barely have any crashes (I think 2 ever). I have steady FPS as well. Guess I just got lucky compared to the other people reviewing.

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.

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.
