Top Critic Average
Featuring an impressive roster of bikes and tracks, and a broad spectrum of events to participate in, Ride 2 starts out being a bit of a grind, but eventually becomes a very entertaining racing game. Its action might be a little too hardcore to appeal to anyone other than a real motorcycle fan, but if that's you, definitely check it out.
An excellent videogame that is outstanding in the driving genre. It features very polished gameplay mechanics and a enormous amount of content. Besides, it has improved greatly its visuals, even though the online mode is still very traditional.

An encyclopedia of motorcycling, fun to play and developed with passion. The best choice for motorcycle enthusiasts.

Despite the similarities, Ride 2 is not as user friendly as Microsoft’s annual racing games. This means players are going to have to really work to ride with the best, and that’s an uphill battle they may not want to fight on your recreational time.
While Ride 2 has some problems, such as questionable balancing of difficulty and credit-earning, the wealth of customisation options available and the pure gratification and thrill of competing makes it rather unlike any other experience currently available.
A worthy purchase option for serious motorcycle fans, and a cautionary tale for curious onlookers, Ride 2 succeeds in establishing itself in the racing space, with authentic track and bike design, a vast array of play styles and options, and a key online support to boost longevity.
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.

The physics engine in Ride 2 is one of the best I’ve seen in any game, racing or not.
Ride 2 is far from perfect, it has flaws with both the visuals and, more importantly, the AI. However, the AI isn't always bad and it doesn't stop the game from being enjoyable. What helps the game is that it has such a huge roster of bikes, extensive customization options and a variety of tracks and race types to experience.
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.
