Ride 5 is more than just a step up from its predecessors. Showing clear ambitions, the game deserves the title when it is referred to as the Gran Turismo of motorcycle simulations. Make no mistake, while it draws inspiration, it's no mere imitation. Ride 5 is truly an exceptional beast, forging its own trail in the racing gaming world. Many bike racing games are out there, but Ride 5 stands tall among them. It doesn't just compete; it contends strongly as the best bike racing game this year. In the podium for the genre, Ride 5 revs its engine to be at the top. Whether you're a pro at motorbike games or a newbie eager to explore, Ride 5 welcomes you with open handlebars. It promises and delivers an unmatched virtual motorcycle racing experience. If you've been on the fence about which bike racing game to get, Ride 5 comes highly recommended. Strap on your virtual helmet and enjoy the ride!

I have to be honest, 3 years after the fourth episode I would have expected a more evolved fifth chapter and, instead, net of a decidedly more centered and engaging career, the competition against AI suffers from illogical behaviors that the player is forced to manage manually, while technically there is no current-gen quality leap that could be expected, without the ballast of a cross-gen development. At its best is always Ride, an almost unique game in the panorama of simulation racing and therefore a reference point for those looking for this specific type of experience. But here there is potential that goes far beyond the improvements expressed in this chapter, closer to those of an annual series than a triennial one.

Ride 5 is not a huge, evolutionary leap from the last game in 2020. Instead, Ride 5 continues to refine and add depth, options, and polish to an already excellent racer. The continued lack of a thorough, step-by-step tutorial is puzzling. Ride 5 has options for inexperienced riders, but it’s clearly leaning hard into being an exacting motorcycle sim for fans of the sport.

While not perfect, RIDE 5 certainly has bags of potential. If you're willing to put in the time to get to grips with its punishingly realistic gameplay, then there's the reward of some truly exhilarating first person racing that will have you on the edge of your seat.

Ride 5 is the first episode designed and developed for the consoles of the current generation: just a few kilometers on the track to appreciate the simulative cut and the commitment to accessibility (neural aids work).

Expected by many players after three years of waiting, Ride 5 may well disappoint with its low risk taking and its too great similarity to its predecessor.

Ride 5 is yet another impressive offering from Milestone. By focusing on the current generation of hardware, the motorcycle racer isn’t held back and is able to live to its full potential.
