  • Summary: The game is set in the last years of the roaring 1960s, a time of sex, drugs and rock 'n' roll. The biker movement, rock music and the hippie counterculture all add to the fascinating atmosphere to be experienced in Ride to Hell. Action-loaded from the very start with free roaming environments, players can immerse themselves in the liberty and freedom of riding full throttle with their gang on a multitude of different vehicles through the dusty flats of Western America. Protecting their turf, their brothers and their machines from rival gangs is just a taste of what this epic game involves. Ride to Hell is not for the faint-hearted; it's aimed heavily at the player who wants to become fully involved in the original West Coast biker culture. With its hard drinking, bare-knuckle environment, this is as close to the action as you can get. [Deep Silver] Collapse

    Ride to Hell: Retribution just manages to offer more than ten hours of virtual breakdown.

    So, is it trashy enough to gather a cult following, however tiny? Partly. The funnily deformed characters, gallons of bad pixel blood, choppy dialogue and the surreal scenes of arbitrary love-making do exude a certain broken brand of charm. But even these traces of unintentional hilariousness don't change the fact that actually playing Ride to Hell never is anything even remotely resembling fun.

    You can try out Ride to Hell for some masochistic fun. Low-budget games are built by throwing some concepts together without much thought - Ride to Hell is exactly that, but much more expensive. Interesting story, cool characters, freedom, original missions, great fighting system, exciting chases and heavy guitar riffs - none of that is here. Ride to Hell: Retribution is damaged in such a way, that you start thinking: what were the developers drinking/smoking?

    What a prophetic title. Since the first announcement 5 years ago Ride to Hell has come a long way just to reach the hell of deserved mockery and low scores. Stay clear of this game as if it was a puddle of oil on the highway. [CD-Action 09/2013, p.54]

    This game is a shame for all bikers in the world. The plot is dumb, the graphics and sounds are poor, the gameplay is stupid. It’s just a wild mixture of shooting-sequences, beat-em-up and boring bike-driving that is just a simple test of your reflexes. There’s no cool atmosphere, no exciting storytelling, it’s just a complete waste of money and time.

    The most imaginative thing that happened to me in my time playing this game is that a noiseless combine harvester came towards me and I had to run away from it.

    Not the best game i've ever played, but not the worst either, i have neither clawed out my eyes, or worshipped. Should have got the price right, it's budget baby. Expand

    Bueno para comenzar la portada de este juego da la expectativa de ser un buen juego, pero como dicen LAS APARIENCIAS ENGAÑAN, en segundo lugar miro el punto de vista del juego, para ser de la consola XBOX 360 no llega a encajar allí, en tercer lugar y por ultimo, este juego me parece bastante monótono en el sentido de que el juego se torna ABURRIDO Y REPETITIVO y no logra ser un juego que valga la pena comprar NUNCA.

    Perhaps a better title for this game would be 'Slide to Hell' since that is essentially all that you are capable of performing in this game. After seeing the litany of negative reviews this game received, I have spent quite some time trying to look for anything good or meaningful to say about this game. Unfortunately, there is literally nothing good or redeemable to this steaming pile of manure that we were forced to play.

    The most disappointing thing about this game is that the basic, bare-bones plotline had so much potential. An open world biker rpg set in a post-Vietnam era America as the protagonist lives with his PTSD from extensive combat? What really makes me mad about this game was the potential it had and failed to deliver.

    Instead, we were handed a game that came at a deceptive sale price with a significant amount of hype built up around it before its release, only to disappoint us in every way possible. The plotline is dry and poorly executed, the sex scenes are so blatantly juvenile and lacking, and the gameplay is so horrible that I actually considered thrashing my pc just to get some small measure of petty vengeance.

    I would say that this game would make a great party prank, but I would rather not become charged with 'cruel and unusual punishment' for doing so. If there was a way for me to give this an even lower rating, I would.

    I could not play longer than 15 minutes. It is impossible to adjust graphics options and to choose controls you like. Sound is terrible totally artificial. There is zero immersion in this game. It is a waste of time to write more about it. Avoid at all costs. Expand

    The 1% in this games title refers to this games overall score and Ride to Hell is exactly what this gaming experience is for the poor sod who plays through it. This game sucks so bad that it doesn't even warrant a game that's so bad its good label, watching someone else play through it for the first time can be funny for about ten minutes but after that it loses all value. Honestly don't buy this game even for a laugh it is clearly a failed project that was released anyway to try and make some money back to recover their costs and buying it only encourages this practice, it's the same thing that was done with Aliens:Colonial Marines. This comes from the same company that removed Metro last lights hardest difficulty mode and used it as pre-order bonus/limited edition/DLC.
