Ride 5 is the latest in this series of video games that first made an apperance on consoldes in 2015. This game has graphics that are so good, a gameplay video once went viral and confused viewers who thought it was the real deal!
Ride 5 allows you to decorate the bike of your choice along with the rider outfit. You will then be taken to another screen where you can pick your desired destination. These range from cities to the countryside, and there are various race tracks on there too! With the new AI riding aids, reglardless of your skill level, you can develop your skills on the track
TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge (1,2)
We all know and love the Isle of Man TT. This game, developed by Kylotonn & KT Racing, was first released in 2018, and provides an exclusive and emmersive experience, taking you on a journey or the popular race course. You can race friends online, with up to 8 people.
The developers have taken on the feedback from the first game. Many were commenting on the poor graphics, and a lot were protesting this. Nevertheless, Ride on the Edge 2 features a gyroscopic effect providing a more ‘real’ touch to the game.

Affectionately known as the official Motocross game, this one is also created by the masterminds over at Milestone. Like Ride 4, MXGP3 was also developed using Unreal Engine 4, making the graphics as equally outstanding, providing another audience with just the same experience.
This game provides a variety of bikes to choose from, including 10 2-strokes. Every bike is completely customisable and there are plenty of locations to choose from too. One aspect that some players were quite disappointed about was the inability to perform stunts. However, if you’re not bothered about that then this will be right up your street!
