RIDE is currently the only motorcycle game that truly embodies the fullness of the world of supersport racing with the perfect blend of motorcycle variety, environments and realistic game play. If only RIDE had a bigger budget along the lines of a Need for Speed or Forza Motorsport, but that doesn't detract from the overall game play whatsoever. RIDE is something that both casual racers can appreciate as well as passionate riders.
Personally, I'm not a rider. So I invited a friend of mine to partake in some of the game. He immediately commented on the authenticity of the physics and control as well as the details of the bikes themselves. It's a tough task to make all aspects of a game desirable to both casual and hardcore fans of any genre, but Milestone caps it off with what is the best motorcycle racer to date in RIDE. It's difficult for motorcycle games because mostly everyone who has a license has driven car, including some who haven't. On the other hand, many people haven't ridden a motorcycle because of that intimidation factor, but Milestone closes the gap for those users. I definitely recommend it for fans of all racing games as well as those who wish to just take it for a spin.
