    Ride 2 has the ambition to appeal to as wide audience of motorbike fans as possible, so it offers loads of contents (tracks, bikes, competitions) and is very flexible in terms of customizing your experience. It’s the best bike racing game of this generation. [13/2016, p.62]

    Simply a must for motorcycle lovers. Ride 2 is better than the prequel in every area. There are still some flaws, but the experience is enjoyable and fun.

    Ride 2 is definitely a game for racing fans, designed from the ground up with customization and realism as the foundational pillars. It’s hard to recommend if you aren’t a fan of the genre, but I would consider it a must have enthusiasts.

    Ride 2 has much more content in every possible aspect. However, Milestone has forgotten that the sequels are also to correct and bring something new.

    Ride 2 is a clear step forward for Milestone, but there are still many things to be improved. In any case, there aren't too many bike racers, and Ride 2 is a good game and a good option.

    Ride 2 is like the first iteration of the game, a good motorbike game with loads of content that's spoiled by technical issues and an unmissable lack of global polish.

    On paper, then, Ride 2 is an exciting proposition that bundles the promises of aspirational game design with the raw power and fun associated with motorbikes. Unfortunately, those promises are broken and the resulting game falls flat. Unless you're so enamoured with two-wheeled machines that you simply can't help but pick yourself up a copy, you should wait for a new contender to try its hand at delivering a biking game of this scope.

It might not be the most beautiful game and the presentation could be a bit more spectacular. But when it comes down to riding, bike and track selection, this is just pure fun. To me, the most important improvement over its predecessor are the greatly improved load times. For all car arcade racers: It is a motorcycle game and a semi-simulation. Don't expect to go around corners like in ridge racer or you will be disappointed. Expand

Gran Turismo for motorbikes, except this looks much better. When you are watching a video of the race you just finished, it actually looks better than Milestone's promo pictures! Virtual bikes have never been this glorious before. Even Valentino Rossi the Game, Milestones jewel, an official Moto GP simulator, cannot beat Ride 2. Many may not agree, but I like the spirit of Ride 2 more.

    The game has enough difficulty options, everyone can learn to ride it. Physics feel believable enough. For me it was a little bit more difficult than virtual car racing in the beginning, took about an hour to learn basic driving in easy mode, but you will propably be faster, I'm an old fart.

    If you love bikes, you will love Ride 2. Gorgeous vehicles, awesome road sceneries, true to life race tracks. Ride 1 was somewhat unfinished, the sequel is finished and polished **** A1 game. Riding feels fast and furious. Of course when you sit staring at a monitor... it can't be anything like riding a bike physically, oh why I wrote that boring no-brainer. But when you are doomed inside, there's -15 celsius outside, and the summer is just a far-off dream, Ride 2 can save your mental health.

    I recommend this game.

The visuals are stunning and are an improvement over its predecessor, Ride.  However, the drawback to this game is an initial installation time of about 30-45 minutes.  There are arcade elements as well.  There is no health bar. Also, if you crash.  The rider gets right back up after flopping like a rag doll.  I think this game is perfect for the casual to experienced gamer as you can set each of the races difficulty before beginning the track.  If you are looking for a motorcycle racing simulator coupled with arcade gameplay choose Ride 2!

Ride 2 provides multiple game modes and begins with a pretty solid tutorial mode.

    Once completed, you can choose a starter bike. You will be able to race in a world event which provides reputation and credit on each race won depending on the rank. If you get into trouble with your bike, our favorite feature comes into play - you are able to rewind and take the time in reverse and have a do-over of taking control of bike again a few seconds before.

    We really appreciated the graphics, especially the bike details. In addition, the environment looks pretty good, just keep in mind that you will focused mainly on the track and the bike. While there is nothing much to the background music, the sounds in relation to the bikes are performed in perfect synchronicity.

    I would give this game 8 stars for providing with perfect racing experience. For the full review, you can head on over to our website.

Unfortunately forThe whole purpose of what I’ve been doing the last couple of years is to find new games genres and franchises that I like. Unfortunately for every new discovered Genre that you like, there are going to be some Genre that you don’t like. I don’t think I like racing games. I enjoy playing Mario Kart with friends but racing against AI or maybe people online. It’s just not fun for me.

    I don’t know if this is a good racing game, all I do know is that I found it to be very boring. I’m glad that I found out early this year that I’m not into racing games so I know to stop buying/renting them.

    There is not much more I can say about this game, it was extremely boring and I don’t want to play any more racing games (other than the occasional cart racer).

Not sure why there is such a "backlash" regarding weak graphics or AI; I have not found anything even close to this level of motorcycle racing experience with any other game developer. The bikes look and play quite realistic. It is exciting to get a chance to bring such a variety of bikes through their paces on the track. The areas I would like to see improved are more realistic sound and more tracks. The possibility of a virtual city to ride these bikes through would be entertaining but probably not realistic within budget and focus of the game. Expand
