Ride 2 is meant for all motorcycling fans. Riding detailed bikes is still fun after many hours of playing. Despite its shortcomings, we can still recommend this game.

Ride 2 ist zwar kein perfektes, aber ein sehr gutes Rennspiel, welches sich Fans mit Benzin im Blut über die Wintermonate unbedingt zu Gemüte führen sollten.

Overall, Ride 2 is a great racing simulator for all fans with various skill levels as well as love for certain types of bikes. The controls offer a wide range of settings from beginners to experts. The graphics are visually stunning and it is a really fun game to get lost in and play for hours. Keep in mind that the repetitive gameplay may keep some away from purchasing this game, however I would recommend getting this game if you like racing sims and looking for anything similar to Gran Turismo but with Motorcycles.
Ride 2 fails to provide compelling reasons for one to tackle their world tours due to poor gameplay mechanics and imbalanced AI.

Welcome to crotch rocket paradise!
If you can look past the so-so graphics and presentation, and you happen to be a bike lover, then RIDE 2 is by far the most exciting on-road bike game money can buy. Just don’t expect it to perform a wheelie or endo in all categories.
Motorcyclists will love the amount of content Ride 2 has to offer, but more casual racers may be turned off by its depth and aggressive AI. There is a serious difficulty curve in place that isn’t for everyone, but those willing to face it head on can find something to like here.
Ride 2 manages to improve on last year’s release, but still struggles to shift itself above a niche racer for fans of the sport.
Ride 2 is certainly an improvement over the original game. There's still a grind to experience as you get through the World Tour, but it isn't as severe as before. The physics and general bike handling are balanced now, so both beginners and more experienced players can handle it, and the frame rate is more stable than before. With long loading times and an AI that hasn't evolved at all, it feels like the changes in Ride 2 aren't significant enough to attract people who weren't already enamored with the first game. Bike aficionados will certainly have more fun with the game, but if you really want to race something that's not on four wheels, try this out as a rental.
Milestone is capable of and has produced drastically better and more authentic racers in the past. As previously indicated, those gems also tend to be the games that received the most breathing space.
