Milestone have released a new update for their RIDE 3 bike racing videogame.


The new patch for RIDE 3 was released earlier today and is rather considerable in its size, marking what Milestone claim to be the first step in a sustained development push to move the direction of the game in line with the expectations of the gaming community. Stated as part of the release notes introduction, Milestone have confirmed they are listening to community feedback for the title, which has led to the "basis for the important upgrades that we have decided to play. The process of change will take some time, but we are pretty confident.."

So without further ado, let us take a look at the change log below:
  • Improvements to game menu pages and overall navigation

"Milestone have confirmed they are listening to community feedback for the title,"

Lol. It seems they have selective hearing.

"...which has led to the "basis for the important upgrades that we have decided to play. The process of change will take some time, but we are pretty confident.."

These aren't upgrades. They are fixes for bugs that shouldn't have been in the initial release. Also, I see they have tuned the AI. That's also not an upgrade. That's attempting to fix something that is broken. My bet is it's a poor attempt. If a great developer tried to fix all this crap, it would take them a long time. But seeing this is milestone, I'm pretty confident they will not listen to their customers and they will fix only what they think they need to fix. It will take much longer then it should and will address only a small fraction of the bugs. Then they will copy the same bugs to ride 4.

PS. Death to Milestone! (Wow, I've really developed a loathing for them)

Somehow, I don't think this game is bad at all. It might actually be the most interesting thing coming out from Milestone since early 2000's.

I won’t buy it without VR but I would try a demo if there was one.
That is always the problem these day with new games , never or almost never they give us a demo to try it before we buy it , they are way to scared to show how there game really is .

PCars2, Forza 7, horizon4, all have demo, so some do, maybe Ride 3 will also.
At the end of the day, they all have a demo, somewhere out there, but by then you also get the game, developers should not take chance and just have a demo available.

I heard rumours that Milestone are developing VR for Ride 3. That's it, I'm not buying it.

The update doesn’t seem to have improved the framerate on the longer road tracks like the Snake.

Other than that Ride 3 is motorbike equivalent of Forza Motorsport 4, no more and no less. It’s fun for racing, most of the time trials and track day events. The drag racing is truly awful. It’s an old fashioned grind to unlock the campaign and certain reward bikes.

Great range of bikes, some enjoyable sounds but as with all similar games the number of bikes outweighs the number of tracks. In car terms it’s an understeer biased game, every bike understeers - which adds to the Forza comparison. I’ve unlocked everything except the final championship and the same tracks over and over has become dull. I’d like to finish the game but it’s small doses now.

It’s worth £20 and good for what it is, the special events at the end of each part of the campaign are the best element, riding the same bike as it evolved over the years is interesting.
