Another of the great innovations that have been integrated in my point of view is that these bikes are much more customizable than th
ey were before, being able to tinker in many aspects and choose between more than 1200different parts and pieces . The most expert mechanics and geeks of this kind of options will spend hours perfecting their precious two-wheeled machines and changing their suspension systems, brakes, engine, etc.
Fun and diversity
But there is much more. Another of the important problems presented by the original game was its limited variety of circuits available which, i
However, the most important change that has been integrated into Ride 2 has to do with its improvement and increase in its purely playa
ble environment. To begin with, the number of options and game modespresented is really large, ranging from playing the typical races against the clock to compete against another player to split screen (as in the old days), play online against 11 other players at once or get into the main mode called World Tour .
This option is a kind of mess drawer that groups together different tests over several seasons. Competing against another rider, demonstra
ting our expertise in circuits with cones, playing normal races or participating in team competitions are some of the challenges offered by this curious option, which has seemed strange to me as strangely addictive.
To all this we add the usual weekly and daily challenges that are appearing and that add something more variety to a title, we reiterate, quite careful in that sense. It is the typical game that, if you like, you can keep busy for many weeks.
The amount of options and game modes is tremendous
On the other hand, the control of motorcycles is in arcade or simulation, depending on what we like the most. And is that depending on the level of demand we choose and the “fine” we adjust our motorcycle when it comes to establishing some of its para

Anyone who has tried a Milestone video game will surely already know what to expect from its technical aspect. And is that if there is a defect that weighs down all the productions of this study is its visual aspect, which does not finish “start”. That’s because the graphics en
It is true, that we must make it very clear, that it shows quite a lot of evolution in relation to what was expressed in the original game. And that is seen
in many of the elements that we can contemplate, from the textures that cover the scenarios to the modeling of the bikes (really remarkable) or the rep
resentation of the grass and vegetation. But that does not hide the emptiness that certain funds show, the lack of showiness of some effects, the polygonal that some objects are noticed and other deficiencies that the title presents.
Does this affect the gameplay? The truth is that no … but other titles such as Forza Horizon 3 , Driveclub and many others do add a spectacular that improves the game experience simply through the staging, a field in which speed games have always marked trend.
And it would not have hurt a greater refinement in the physics of the pilots and motorcycles that, without being bad, sometimes clash a bit.
The sound is not the best of Ride 2 either , at all. The voice of the commentator who explains some of the details of the game is nice but somewhat “inhuman”, the effects of the engines meet without further ado and the soundtrack goes unnoticed.
