Riders Republic Review :
Welcome to Game Review this is often more of an informational Post about all or any more details of Riders Republic and what we all know so far.
Today we are going to look at Riders Republic. The Riders Republic is a multi-sports game and this game was developed by Ubisoft. Who wants to be an extreme sports champion and to do that you need to compete in many events across different fields and you have Snowboards, Ski Racing, Downhill bikes, Road bikes, Racing wingsuit, and the Rocket wingsuit to round things off.
Riders Republic Review: There’s a hell of a lot of events to test your skills on bikes and snow sports mostly see you racing and tricking whilst and the wingsuit offers something a bit different by earning you points for flying closer to the ground or obstacles than the rocket suit is all racing and sees you hammering it through winding courses full of trees and small gaps to fly through.
It’s all good stuff and has great variety as you win events you unlock new gear with better stats faster speed, quicker rotation, etc. I would rather have had steep’s approach where gear doesn’t matter just your skills and new gear is just cosmetic grinding for gear feels a bit out of place in a game like this there are also funky events that see you riding a rocket-powered bike and wooden skis amongst other things to add a bit more variety and the world itself is massively varied and begs to be explored.
The sense of freedom is great you can do what you want when you want and the game will reward you for it as you progress you earn stars which increases your career level thus unlocking new rewards like events, sponsors, and sports. You unlock things at a nice pace and with so many ways to alter the difficulty you can make the game as chill or as challenging as you want.
Each event also has challenges to earn more stars from the simple stuff like earning a certain score to doing a certain trick at a certain point in the event so there are loads to keep you coming back for more. It’s the controls for the game that have cheesed my onions a bit you have three control schemes race off which is ideal for racing trick stuff which is ideal for tricks and steep controls if you’re familiar with that.
Riders Republic Review: I like using the racing controls for bike races, wingsuits, and rocket suit events but the steep controls for any trick events being able to assign different controls schemes would be a big help but you can’t you have to pause the game and change it before you start each event and they can feel stiff and unresponsive sometimes especially in the bike events other annoyances creep in too like the rewind feature that doesn’t rewind the ai so really what’s the point there’s a microtransaction shot because of course there is and every character is a gobshite multiplayer-wise.
There is a lot to sink into obviously you can form a party with friends and just explore the world and do events but there are some dedicated PVP modes 2. Mass races are fun and chaotic but anyone looking for a competitive balanced experience with these may be disappointed with so many people bunched up it’s hard to see at the start of races and all it takes is one nudge to send you flying off the track and the physics system sometimes likes to do you over when you ride over a small rock and launch you in the air in the opposite direction funny though seeing other people face plant trees as you screech by and then do exactly the same I also like that the race changes at certain stages you go from skis to wingsuit then bike or something like that.
It gives you the right workout and can really test your mastery of each sport there are two other competitive modes trick battle and free-for-all trick battle sees two teams take over areas of a map by doing tricks on them and holding the majority gives the team a five-time score bonus I’m not sure how I feel about this one, to be honest, I would rather have a good old-fashioned trick off and it’s one of the modes where you have to rely on random so it can totally go either way.
Riders Republic Review: The free-for-all mode has 12 player races and so on pretty self-explanatory and it’s fine but balancing comes into question when you see other players with much better gear than you. Skill may beat out an advantage like that but free for all and trick battles are ranked and have divisions to compete for so why not make it a level playing field at least the PVP is here at launch though unlike in steep where it came way too late.
Graphically the game looks a bit blurry to me on the series seven with the motion blur turned off and that’s a shame because behind that it looks great the variety in the environments brings a lot of nice colors and weather effects and the animations on the tricks look great I tried it on pc as well and at 1440p it looks amazing. Overall the gameplay, graphics, sound are amazing, and playing with your friends has some fun. This game will be released on Oct 28th for PC, PS4, PS5, Xbox One, Series X, and S. That’s all today and I hope you enjoy this article. Let’s give a comment about this game.
