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.

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!

WHERE ARE THE GSXR 1300 HAYABUSA'S? I own a 2004 Busa and for a game like this to not have the "Fastest bike in the world" is silly! "Ride- Only motorcycle game without Hayabusa" lol The rest of the game is amazing-ish. Tracks are small and I hate to tell the devs this but I'm not spending money of bikes that are the same but have different stickers. 2014 to 2015 NOTHING REALLY CHANGES. If the devs would like to bring me on as help I'll give you real world hp, turns, brake times, etc. Did I mention my friends and I own a motorcycle shop?

Is it perfect? No, it has issues. But I've not experienced anything game breaking, and ultimately I found RIDE incredibly enjoyable. In a world where the last "Forza/GT but with bikes" came out 10 years ago, you have to overlook what I feel a minor inconveniences and enjoy a rare release. Having played a lot of Milestone's previous bike games (all the way back to EA Sports Superbike 2001) probably helps, as they have made incremental improvements to what I feel is a rock solid riding model.

Sure, its not GP Bikes, but there's a reason why no mainstream release has tackled simulating the weight shifting/countersteering that it takes to truly ride a bike, its an extra level of complication that would simply be a very large barrier for some people to overcome to find enjoyment. But all the right elements are there, braking points, lean angle and throttle application. A hold-trigger-to-go arcade racer its not.

The knock against Milestone is they barely supported this game, with limited fixes and some incredibly content light DLC, and seemingly they are moving on to producing a sequel. So I can understand peoples' grievances in this regard for a self-published title (where a developer would usually be subjugated to the whims of a 3rd party publisher)

I recommend this game with caveats; if you have a grunty system, and an affinity for bikes (or Milestones' previous bike sims). However I don't recommend getting anything more than the basic release, and if money's tight or you simply have a passing interest, wait for a sale.

A brief analysis:
- A could-have-been-better-but-not-bad list of motorcycles: there are some emblematic bikes, such as the Yamaha YZF R1 and R6, Kawasaki Ninja, Ducati 1199, Honda Fireblade and others, along with some older models like the FZR750R, but the list of available bikes feels somewhat incomplete, especially when compared to Tourist Trophy, which boasted a much more varied list of available vehicles;
- On the other hand, RIDE has got a good selection of tracks, with plenty of challenging tracks and well-modeled environments. There are some courses that may be familiar to most racing game aficionados, like Donington Park and Imola, along with original tracks;
- Gameplay is OK. Handling feels realistic (and becomes really unforgiving with riding aids turned off), the bikes have a good response to input (some of the more powerful motorcycles may be tricky to control), and there are different camera angles to choose from (dashboard view's the best for riding, in my opinion). However, framerate is very unstable (and too laggy when the screen's crowded; it sometimes gets to a point where this problem actually has the potential of ruining your races) and, sadly, it never reaches the oft-desired 60 frames per second.
- Sound is great. The bikes sound like their real-life counterparts, and the ambient sound is also OK. Soundtrack is forgettable, but not bad.

Need some high-speed two-wheeled action? RIDE may be the game you're looking for. It has the potential to be onde of the best riding games available once you learn to deal with failures, but it definitely feels like something is missing. If you prefer a wider variety of tracks and vehicles, you should stick with Tourst Trophy instead. - 8/10

Biggest waste of money ever, the game feels horrible, runs horribly even on a 980, crappy graphics even when maxxed out, had to press enter 12 times to start a race, then I couldn't even start the race because some stupid bug meant it stayed on the pause screen, pressing escape or enter on "resume" only unpaused the game for half a second before the pause menu came back up... couldn't even do a single world tour race, awful game full of bugs which means you can't even play it, unplayable, absolutely ♥♥♥♥♥.

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.

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.

Pro's.

-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.

Con's.

-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.
