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 PC. 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.
Ride is also available on PS4.
RIDE fills an important gap in the world of videogames, with passion and courage. Despite some flaws, the new IP of Milestone has a bright future.
The Italian studio Milestone has developed many bike racing simulations like SBK, MotoGP or MXGP in the last years, but Ride takes a different route and is based on amateur motorbike racing. So it is possible to race on closed traffic roads and some famous GP-courses with over one hundred street bikes. Ride is a good game with nice physics, but unfortunately the sound is weak and there are a lot of bugs.
Ride is a good racing game, with an excellent driving model. The career is a little outdated, at least in 2015, and there are some technical issues, but overall it's a great experience for all the bikers out there.
Russian proverb states that stability is a sign of mastery, but sometimes stability is only a sign of stability. Take Milestone for example: year after year they make games that always get very mediocre ratings. They’re stable to the point that most of their shortcomings can be copy-pasted straight from previous reviews. [June 2015, p.73]
The good variety of bikes does not compensate for the poor driving model and the old-gen look.
Admirable but not firm enough side step at the first look. Milestone studio would like to build something new, but they are building from old bricks. RIDE’s oddity is only a disguise and the game feels like sidekick with potential. I hope that the game will not stop at one attempt, because the direction is certainly correct.
It could have been to Gran Turismo for motorbikes. Milestone can’t capture the fascination as well as Polyphony did over years, while the races suffer technically and in terms of balancing.
