Ride 2 

 

I appreciate Square Enix giving Family Friendly Gaming a digital downloadable version of Ride 2 on the Playstation 4 (also a ton of bonus content). This game clocks in at a hefty thirty-three gigs. It took quite a few hours to download this game. Thankfully Family Friendly Gaming has the bandwidth to download such a massively large game. Quite a few other games at the PS4 had to be deleted to make room for it. Families will be pleased to hear there is a physical copy version of Ride 2.

The loading screens in Ride 2 are long. Which matches what has happened with a lot of modern video games. The modes in Ride 2 are World Tour, Quick Modes, My Bikes, My Rider, My Team, Challenges, Online, Options, and Add-Ons. World Tour contains Season Events, Invitational Events, Championships, Team vs Team, and World Ranking. The Quick modes in Ride 2 are Quick Race, Time Trial, and Split Screen. Two local players can enjoy Ride 2 at the same time.

Ride 2 is very kind to players. It starts us out at the easiest difficulty setting. Maybe that has something to do with my skills and how I did in the trial race. The music is nice in Ride 2. I like how it is subdued compared to the motorcycle engine sounds. Expect a learning curve when you start to play Ride 2. This racing game shows you when and where to brake. After a few races I got the feel of Ride 2.

There is a feature in Ride 2 that I love. What is this feature? It is the rewind button. We have infinite rewinds for quite a bit. Make a mistake and hit the L1 button. This will let you rewind. Once you get out of the rewind it is in a slow motion for a few seconds so corrections can be made. This is absolutely brilliant, and improves upon the Forza Horizon franchise rewind.

Some of the graphics in Ride 2 are fabulous, like the bikes, tracks, and backgrounds. The facial features of My Rider is not as great. The animations in Ride 2 are great. Crashing and watching your rider bounce around - not as great. There are a lot of circuits to race in Ride 2. There are also a lot of bikes. Both of those things are pretty great. Expect to see brand name motorcycles in Ride 2. Another great thing. I ran out of not great things okay?

I noticed some interesting penalties in Ride 2. I got a penalty for going on the grass. I was not cutting, I went to wide on the turn. Isn't going that wide punishment enough? I could knock other racers off their bikes and cause them all kinds of harm for no penalty. Call me crazy, but crashing another rider seems penalty worthy. I am just saying if you know what I mean.

Ultimately I like Ride 2. I like it better than Ride. Everything about Ride 2 feels better to me. If you would like to learn a motorcycle racing game then Ride 2 is for you. Ride 2 has its parts of difficulty. It also has some great entry level stuff in it. I loved playing local multiplayer with the split screen. I hope this franchise continues in the future. It would great if Ride 3 added an open world area like the Forza Horizon franchise.
