    RIDE 3 confirms the excellent work done by Milestone with the second episode of the series, delivering a rich, compelling racing experience packed with hundreds of motorbikes, lots of tracks and customization options.

    RIDE 3 is the bike racing game to beat this generation. A much-improved presentation, with a focus on the thrill of the ride, comes alongside improved load times.

    Ride 3 is the third installment of the bike racing series by Milestone. With 230+ different bikes and up to 30 tracks and a solid physics engine with nice graphics, this game is a real masterpiece for all the bikers, both amateurs and pros.

    A leap of quality for the inclusion of the Unreal Engine 4 with respect to the previous game and the increase in content, but it is light years away from being the Forza of the bikes.

    While it packs in more content than its predecessors, RIDE 3 feels soulless and nonessential if you already own last year’s instalment.

    Seriously?

    Just to give a little background. I have been riding motorcycles since the mid-80's. I currently ride a Ducati Monster. I watch & have watched all forms of motorcycle racing including MotoGP religiously since before it was called 'MotoGP'. I have purchased just about every game ever made on the subject since the days of the Sega Master System and Nintendo. I say all of this to let you know that I am not some kid picking up this game as 'just another racing game'. Here are a few points I would like to highlight:
    1. If you don't ride motorcycles or at least have an interest in them, this is not the game for you.
    2. Anyone rating this game below an 8? See point #1.
    3. While not perfect, this is the best motorcycle based game ever made. Add in more bikes from the 60s-80s and you would actually be getting closer to a perfect score.
    4. The physics of the game are outstanding and the best yet.
    5. Graphics are not on par with Forza, but they are nevertheless fantastic...again, best yet for a motorcycle game.
    6. Customizations are very good...but I personally would like to be able to put a Yosh on a Honda...a Muzzy on a Kawi...etc.

    All in all, this game is fantastic if you have a love for two wheels. Is it really a 10? No...that's just to counter the morons who would give this game anything below an 8.

    I've been playing Milestone games for a few years now and although this developer has had a rough few years, I'm pleased to say that it's off on the right foot. With the success of Ride 2 there was much anticipation for this entry and it was worth the wait. Ride 3 is a great step in the ride direction for Milestone. With the step up from their in-house engine to Unreal, this game has seen a boost in both graphics and physics. As of right now, the game features a total of 230 bikes, though many of them are a repeat from previous installments. One of my biggest pet-peeve is that there aren't any 2018 models and very few 2017's. I love Ducati and I'm pleased with the beefy roster but when it comes to MV Agusta, which I also love, the choices are lackluster and a copy and paste of Ride 1, with a couple new additions.

    The rider customization has been vamped up as well. Though the facial animation remains somewhat awkward and at times scary. There's a vast option of helmets, leathers, gloves etc. I would like to see a helmet editor in the next series. They did add bike editor and it is pretty sweet.

    Ride 3 has all the potential to be the best bike simulator as there are no other competitors. I hope Milestone makes it become the Forza or Gran Turismo of bikes as there is so much potential in this game!

    Pros: 1. good graphics and sound

    Cons: 1. no test drive before races so hopefully you know the track by heart because the map is useless, 2. you cant even see upcoming corners on the map until you're way past the point of breaking going 80mph into a hairpin that you didn't know was there because the map is so stupidly zoomed in, and you cant adjust the map size, 3. the trajectory arrows that were extremely efficient in ride 2 are now barely visible and hard to read, 4. the way the rider leans and scoots his butt around on the bike is much less realistic than ride 2, he rides like the characters in gta v ride 5. there is less customization than ride 2 when it comes to choosing how your rider leans and rides 6. when you're reversing he leans the bike like hes taking a corner and one foot pushes back off of the air instead of the ground, in real life you dont lean a motorcycle when reversing, you just turn the front wheel and back up
