Motorbike racing has been a highlight of motorsport for generations with road and track racing attracting enthusiasts from all over the world. There is nothing quite like seeing someone zoom past you at 200mph with nothing more than a leather suit and a helmet for protection. Well, gaming has always allowed you to step into their world and hop on a bike to race. However, there has always been a disconnect between the track and the pits. RiMS Racing aims to align the two for a much more comprehensive bike racer.
This game plays like other motorsport titles such as Moto GP, Motorstorm, Driveclub, Gran Turismo, Forza and MXGP. This game aims to grant players an access all areas pass to every nook and cranny of the motorbike world. However, is this a welcome invitation? Or is this game just another racer that values style over substance? We find out in our review of RiMS Racing.
Comprehensive Bike Racing
Let’s focus on the racing first of all. When controlling the racer and gunning for the top spot on the track, this game feels just as good as any other than we have played. Due to the very detailed customisation options of each bike and the multitude of different ways you can tactically approach a race, you really feel connected to your bike and as a result, you learn how to get the best out of it, use its characteristics to your advantage, race tracks as they should be and ultimately, win time and time again.
However, these wins wont come without you knuckling down and understanding what makes your bike tick. RiMS Racing gives you every tool you can imagine to engineer the perfect bike. You’ll need to get your head around torque, traction, brake speed, trajectory and streamlining if you want to succeed. Plus, with official parts from all the finest machines in the world of motorsports included here. If you learn in the game, you learn in reality, which is a fun thing to take away from a gaming experience.
Then just touching on the presentation of the game, it’s absolutely superb. The visual presentation is a photo realistic showcase that offers true to life bike models, tracks that are instantly recognisable and environmental and weather touches that add to the immersive qualities of this game.
Overall, RiMS Racing is a motorbike racer that offers something that most others don’t, attention to detail from the pits to the track.
It’s perhaps one of the most technical racers in the genre for years, allows you to manage your bike, your team and your brand before rubber even touches the tarmac and the game also looks incredible into the bargain. It’s a truly unique bike racer and fans of this sport will need to give this a try.
