    Overall, Riders Republic is a fantastic game and the most addictive extreme sports game on the market outside of maybe the Tony Hawk’s Pro Skater 1 and 2 remake. The variety of sports enables the experience to remain fresh, while those wanting a greater challenge can enjoy more events faster by stepping their game up and going for a more all-encompassing experience with more tricks and tougher difficulty. Cross-generation buyers will be in for a far better experience on the PS5 thanks to the SSD speeding things up and making for a much smoother experience, but the PS4 version is impressive given the tech. If it wasn’t for the SSD’s speed, the feeling of both versions’ races would be quite similar and you can’t go wrong with any version.

    Riders Republic is a worthy successor to both Steep and The Crew. This massive multiplayer sports game offers access to a beautiful area where players can go all out and hardly be put in the way.

    Riders Republic is a little surprise, an extreme sports game that pick ups elements from the legends of the genre and applies them to a huge open world, more social-oriented, but without losing the focus on the fun part. It's far from perfect, but at least tries to do something different... despite the micropayments.

    Once you get through the tutorial, Riders Republic opens up into a sandbox only limited by your imagination. There’s enough to do to keep players busy for a long time and enough variety to keep things fresh. So grab your board, hop on your bike, it’s time to ride.

    If you can get past all the posturing and over-the-top woo-hooing, Riders Republic is a very good extreme sports game.

    If Riders Republic may disappoint Steep fans (the title goes against the spirit of the game of 2016), this new production remains a must for all thrill seekers. With its many playable sports disciplines, starting with the bike which offers exhilarating sensations, its exotic world and its many modes available both solo and online, the latest production from Ubisoft Annecy will undoubtedly keep you busy for the long haul.

    Riders Republic is a buffet of breathtaking sights and catchy sounds, but it’s bogged down by checklists and grinds.

The sense of speed you have when you drive your bike down a hill with multiple people all around you is so awesome. The map is giant but never feels empty. So much to discover and do.

    Moving around does not get boring because you can always change up how you move and the natural vistas are beautiful.

    Only downside are the dialogues but just ignore those and you will have an amazing time.

    Hope this game will get a large community and will get supported for many years with more events, outfits and perhaps even more sports (skateboard for instance). Best purchase I made this year. Highly recommended.

    This game is incredibly fun. The way they captured the feeling of ripping down a hill in first person on a bike is second to none. All sportsThis game is incredibly fun. The way they captured the feeling of ripping down a hill in first person on a bike is second to none. All sports are fast fun and challenging in their own way. They have so many challenges, technical challenges and things to find in this game. You don't even have to compete to enjoy playing this, though of you do compete they throw constant rewards your way. The game is not pay to win, Only pay to look cooler if you want that. All progression of your character is set through competing in challenges/ competitions. Don't get me wrong, it has some minor things that aren't prefect but this game certainly deserves a 10. Expand

There is so much to discover. You can choose a variety of different rides, such as bicycles, snowmobiles, snowboards, wingsuits, and even a rocket suit. And you can switch between these rides in real time. You can even experience it in first person. For a huge open world game that is rich in content, the graphics are neat.

    The customization options in this game are amazing. You can keep the look of your character grounded by wearing simple shirts and pants, or you can make your character look absolutely ridiculous with a unicorn mask and green skin tone. There are so many events to do in the open world. This game is exactly what an open world game should be about; freedom and tons of content. Lots of replay value in this game. The physics are complete garbage though. The cutscenes in this game were cringeworthy, but I appreciate that the cutscenes isn't the typical arty farty "I'm so miserable" trash that developers are obsessed with.

    There is an offline solo mode called Zen mode in this game. All you can do is ride around the open world and do tricks. There are no events or races to be found in this mode. Very disappointing. So once the developers decide to switch off the servers, you will be left alone riding in the map with no activities. You can't even customize your character in the mode. Nonetheless, I do appreciate that there is at least an offline mode. I recommend you wait for the price to drop to $40 before picking this game up.

    When I first started playing this game, I really thought I was going to enjoy it. Well, that lasted for about an hour or so. After that itWhen I first started playing this game, I really thought I was going to enjoy it. Well, that lasted for about an hour or so. After that it became one of the most frustrating games I've played in a long time. If you enjoy cheap mechanics that constantly screw you, you are going to love this game! You are going to get bumped so many times in races. A lot of those bumps from the ghost opponents are going to cause you to crash or mess up and have to start from the beginning. By the 20th or 25th time of having to start a race over because you make one tiny mistake or get bumped by the ghost opponents, you are going to want to pull your hair out.

    If you aren't frustrated yet, just wait until you've restarted the game for the 15th time because it randomly crashed.

    Not frustrated yet from the game crashing or screwing you over in races? Well, just keep playing and I'm sure after you've heard the same song 25 times in a row (it restarts the same song over when you restart a race), you will rather bang your head against a wall than keep putting up with the crap Riders Republic sends your way.

    On top of all that, I bought the Ultimate Edition and it still won't give me any of the cosmetics that come with that edition. So Ubisoft again releases another half-baked game and screws their customers. Don't let them screw you too!

    I definitely won't be playing this game again until they address all these issues. You probably won't have much fun playing Riders Republic either until they actually finish the game and fix all these issues.
