    Overall, Riders Republic takes what makes Forza Horizon great and puts an X-Games type twist to it. Biking, Snowboarding, and wingsuit races will make you want more action as you complete story missions and events to earn sponsors. Riders republic is out for most major systems and consoles right now for 59.99 USD.

    A sprawling, varied, endlessly fun open-world game, and a glimmer of hope for the extreme sports genre.

    Going into Riders Republic, I thought it was going to be the gunning down steep slopes at high velocity that would make me feel ill. It turns out that the only aspect of Riders Republic that knocks me sick is the out-of-touch presentation of the NPCs. I’m being facetious here, because Riders Republic is one of the more genuine surprises of the year. I didn’t expect to find myself trying to perfect downhill runs until 3am. And yet, Riders Republic has completely dug its hooks into me. It imitates the unbridled feeling of freedom from the Forza Horizon games and perfects it in its own subgenre. If you’re looking for an octane-fuelled romp of a game with guaranteed fun, look no further than Riders Republic. Just be sure to bring your own jukebox.

    Riders Republic is the best extreme sports game in ages, but it is, unfortunately, drowning in cringe. Luckily, the game’s beauty is in its gorgeous world and mechanics and not its characters or dialogue. You have to check this one out if you like extreme sports games and fancy a more precarious spin on Forza Horizon. Just be aware that the first impression is rough, and you may need to mattock through some shocking set dressing and turn off the dialogue to break into Riders Republic’s deeply satisfying core.

    You'll find many enjoyable hours exploring, racing, and styling your way around Riders Republic. The world is gorgeous, the sound design and music choices are on point. There are only a few events that will frustrate you. Thankfully, you can mostly avoid these.
  6. Riders Republic misses its chance to be a great game due to some of its lacks in customization and gameplay. An extremely fun game that anyone who loves extreme sports should try.

    Riders Republic tries to improve the Steep formula on many levels, but sometimes fails to really find its own way: by constantly soliciting the players with its trials, rewards, gears, modes and extras, Ubisoft Annecy's new formula sometimes forgets to let us enjoy the ride and its vast landscape.

The sense of speed you have when you drive your bike down a hill with multiple people all around you is so awesome. The map is giant but never feels empty. So much to discover and do.

    Moving around does not get boring because you can always change up how you move and the natural vistas are beautiful.

    Only downside are the dialogues but just ignore those and you will have an amazing time.

    Hope this game will get a large community and will get supported for many years with more events, outfits and perhaps even more sports (skateboard for instance). Best purchase I made this year. Highly recommended.

    This is the first game from Ubisoft in a long time that people want to play again. It brings something new and cool again.

Ubisoft execs can't even figure out why games like Forza are huge hits and it's because Forza is trying to do one thing right whereas Ubisoft try to do everything at once.

    Remember The Crew and The Crew 2? The Crew failed because the world was awful, it was empty and there was nothing to do but they still allowed people to spend $60 until they brought out what they called an "expansion" but then charged the existing player base another $30 to turn their existing games into something at least playable!

    Then The Crew 2 came out with Cars, Boats and Planes and once again Ubisoft showed they don't care about getting it right. They just care about giving the illusion of quantity at the expense of quality.

    Riders Republic is essentially the same thing with assets from the Assassins Creed and Ghost Recon open worlds wrapped in a game of extreme sports minus the extreme part as there is no injury. When you bump into stuff you just turn 90 degrees left or right and the screen goes grey.

    Maybe Ubisoft will learn that people want quality but personally I doubt it and given the aggressive nature of this game i'd say they spent more on behavioural psychologists than on development.

    By trying to appeal to everyone they've basically appealed only to the easily pleased but its these players that will try and never play again despite liking it. They have no retention because they operate only on hype and fear of missing out. These kinds of players move onto the next hyped product as soon as it's announced so this game is never going to garner a loyal player base because people don't like being milked if the content is boring.

    The 4 is for the idea and the minus 6 is for the terrible execution.

Мало того что невозможно войти из-за постоянных "ошибок соединения", так еще и управление отпадает на всех устройствах, как только вошел в гонку, спустя мучения. Пол часа продолбался - после вернул деньги, чего и Вам советую. Но лучше не покупать... Это позор. Expand
