- The presentation side of the game impressed me a lot. Visually the game looks stunning at times and the sound design has a very realistic side to it.
- I found the gameplay to be very enjoyable and riding bikes was not only fun but they also handled well and remained responsive throughout.
- Each circuit in the game is a pleasure to race on and they’ve done a wonderful job of including every little detail in the circuits.
- The online components of the game provided me with many enjoyable races and I didn’t suffer with many problems, which is great.
- There is a decent selection of bikes to get to grips with and you can tell that a lot of thought and effort has gone into them because each bike feels different.
- In terms of content the game could have done with a little bit more because that would keep people coming back for more time and time again.
- Whilst the career mode offers some fun and exciting moments there just isn’t enough of it and was hoping for a little bit more here.
All in all I absolutely love watching the Isle of Man TT races and I’ve actually been to see a race live before, which was a fantastic experience. When TT Isle of Man: Ride On The Edge was first announced I was very excited to say the least and thankfully they’ve done the series justice and they’ve done a wonderful job of capturing the true feeling of the races. The gameplay that’s present in the game has a very realistic feel to it and the bike physics feel on point most of the time, which is great. There is a decent selection of bikes for you to race with and each bike feels unique in its own right, so trying out each bike was worth it. There are quite a few circuits for you to race these fantasic bikes on and you can tell straight away that a lot of care and effort has gone into making these circuits as realistic as possible, and this without a doubt makes riding on them a very immersive experience. Unfortunately there isn’t a great deal of content for you to sink your teeth into and I would have definitely liked more because the game is very enjoyable. The career mode is pretty decent but once again it lacks in content and in my opinion this is the only thing that’s really holding the game back because everything else is pretty much perfect. They do try to combat the lack of content by offering you an online component and I must admit that I really enjoyed this aspect of the game. Everything holds up really well when playing online and I have had many adrenaline-fuelled races already and the best thing is that each race feels incredibly different, which will definitely give the game some replayability. The presentation side of the game is fantastic from start to finish in my opinion. Visually the game looks stunning at times and all of the little details that are included make the racing even more immersive. The sound of the bikes really do sound realistic and when you combine that with the excellent visuals the realism can be off the charts at times. At the end of the day TT Isle of Man: Ride On The Edge is without a doubt one of my favourite bike racing games I’ve ever played. They have put a lot of effort in their offerings and that can be seen throughout your time with the game and if the game had more content then you would be talking about a game that’s pretty much perfect. If you’re a fan of bike racing games then I fully recommend that you purchase this game because it will give you a huge amount of thrilling action.
I rate TT Isle of Man: Ride On The Edge 8.5/10.
