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.

If you like bikes, and bike racing, this is a GREAT GAME. Though you absolutely need a controller for this game on any kind of difficulty. Super fun, and quite accurate. TENOUTTATEN.

This game undoubtedly has a good graphical set-up with some seriously good visuals to give your eyes something nice to see. Although be it good looking, it's not exactly the best in it's entire delivery.

Now, I have played motorsport racing games prior that not only include a Nintendo classic but MotoGP 13 as well. In my personal opinion, MotoGP 13 is probably one of the best racing games out there. I personally do not think Ride gives it a run for it's money but does have a few perks of it's own. Ride is a motorcycle racing game that entices players with it's various bike selection and decent gameplay. The selection of bikes ranges from naked bikes, historical bikes to super bikes each with their own sort of feel (regarding handling) and power. I start off with this point as it's the most influential part of the game as all the big names from Triumph, Kawasaki, Yamaha to KTM are all here. The rest is give or take - alright at best.

The control scheme is decently immersive and accurate at certain times. There is the manual tuck that the player can choose to activate on top of other manual options (brake assistance and transmission settings). The braking system feature for example has two separate buttons for front brake and rear brake. Cool because that does make sense. The issue here though is the handling and braking throughout the turns (or before I should say). That "stiff" feeling of turning or tapping your stick to the right or left is still there. Instead of punishing the player for letting go of the left stick (turning control) too quickly, the rider slowly comes back to an upright position. Even if you're fooling around and tapping the stick left and right, it still has a choppy motion instead of a smooth movement.

I understand the player is flicking the stick but as I've said, the game should punish sloppy or quick movements that would break a trajectory. On top of that, the turning doesn't feel as rewarding as it should. In MotoGP 13, taking a turn at a high speed and keeping that lean was what made it epic. Here, it doesn't really feel like you're doing anything epic at all, just another turn so to speak. What I will give the game credit for though is coming out of a turn. This feels like it was done right especially with higher powered bikes. If the player begins to floor the gas (so to speak) the bike's rear tire will start spinning out of control and slowly start putting the player at risk. The effects of this are cool and do make for split second decisions in how to recover. Problem is even if you do sort of muck up, the rider will go through a small animation looking like he's falling then recover given you did your part. These animations feel stiff and don't move with the bike as well as are sort of misleading. The crashes in MotoGP 13 felt a lot better than they do here (according to my personal contrast)! I think the animations could have been more relative rather than putting the same one for every situation.

The graphics as I've mentioned are really good and the visuals and details on the bikes are quite excellent. Problem is games not only have to look good, they should also play well. The bike designs will make you stop for a moment and especially enjoy any modifications you've made to the bike (which can be seen). Then there are small things like nothing reflecting properly off the mirrors that could drive someone nuts. Some tracks it seems as though they put a repeating loop onto the mirrors. What is nice is that you'll see your player switching gears and letting go of the gas. The sounds are relatively good (not the best) but does give the player something different to listen to when switching bikes. Crash effects more or less sound the same and could have used a bit more diversity here (even though it's not the point of the game)! The music in-game is alright but I would argue the menus sound better.

So why MotoGP 13 over this game? I feel that overall the other game albeit doesn't have as many bikes as Ride, still provides for a better motorcycle simulation game than this. If they made Ride more of an arcade sort of racer and mixed some simulation points into the game, I feel it could have gone better. What is completely appalling is the fact there are SO MANY LOADING SCREENS! Why does it load to a confirmation screen to show my bike once I've already chosen which bike I want to use!? Makes no sense! If you want more diversity in bikes, you may like this game. I play MotoGP in first person when I race whereas here I find I'm stuck playing in 3rd due to things not feeling exactly right. The game does boast a nice career mode where the player can take part of many world tours with different sets of bikes. On top of that, the maps are pretty good and could give the MotoGP 13 maps a run for their money. Also, the game clips randomly for me sometimes (and have noticed others having the same problem). This can be disastrous in key moments. Additionally, the leader boards don't seem to work either.

I will recommend it but you'll definitely have to be a bike/race enthusiast to really enjoy it.

Refunded as it runs poorly, very few graphic options and the AI is very bland.

If i was a bigger fan of bikes i'd enjoy it, plenty of 2 wheel rides in the game and they're presented in a very forza-esque manner.

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

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.
