    Despite some trademark Insomniac humour in the mix, it feels like the reins have been put on a undoubtedly talented studio in order to make this kind of game.

    Strikingly handsome and fun for a while, Apotheon's scrappy combat and awkward controls spoil its atmosphere, costing in a place among the action-platformer elite. [Apr 2015, p.94]

    Fast, truly accessible missions and slower, more strategic battles for sim nuts, plus online arena play. [July 2007, p.113]

    A linear brawl that's over in less than six hours. [Christmas 2010]

    While it's short there is some interesting imagery (although visually the polish varies between adequate and woefully poor) and with an open mind it's a fascinating experience you'll mull over for a while.

    Pleasant to play and easy to pick up. However, the last-gen feeling and lack of atmosphere mean Ride is only a mid-pack racer.
    • 76 Metascore
    • 60 Critic Score
    The new modes are feeble, the missing modes are lamentable and the shift to sparse but always-deadly traffic is a backwards step. [June 2007, p.110]

    There's no denying that the technology has serious potential, it's just a shame that the first game to use it ends up being a busted flush. [Dec 2007, p.100]

    Unresponsive controls. [Christmas 2011, p.111]
