Milestone's racer further improves on its formula by presenting itself as a real motorbiking encyclopedia, with lots of bikes, tracks, info and a revamped graphics engine. Definitely a game to get for every motorcycle lover.
If you like bikes, enjoy racing and have a passion for speed, thrills and all things beautiful then RIDE 3 is definitely a game you need to be getting involved in. It may not have much originality in its game modes, but it does provide a quality racing experience throughout and with hundreds of stunningly recreated bikes, some wonderful tracks and hours of fun to be had messing around with customisations, there is certainly plenty to shout about with the latest entry to the best bike racing series around.
Other than a few minor bumps and quirks aside, there remains little to complain about in the latest installment in the Ride franchise. Milestone has used its vast knowledge of motorcycling titles to build one of its best titles yet. The racing is as accessible as ever and remains welcoming to players of all levels. The growing confidence in the Unreal Engine brings improved presentation, graphics and physics, and when you throw into the mix that you now have more bikes, manufacturers, locations, and the new livery editor, it really feels like the most complete two-wheeled racing game we've seen in years.
Ride 3 is better than the previous entry in the franchise, in all respects. Moto handling is good and content amount is huge. Unfortunately, there is no local multiplayer to compete with friends and online MP deserves more work. Plus, the game's tracks are still a bit empty sometimes.
Ride 3 is a good mortorbike racing game despite the franchise fatigue. Demanding gameplay and a very carefully crafted vehicle catalogue will be delightful for motorbike lovers.
It’s remarkably unremarkable. A safe sequel that changes little and only takes tiny steps to improve its own tried and tested formula. But it’s still the closest thing to Gran Turismo with bikes.
A solid bike sim, but one that lacks a bit of atmosphere and excitement.
