Wheely quite something
If there’s one thing that RIDE 3 has in spades, it’s content. The sheer number of tracks and bikes to unlock, not to mention available modifications, is head spinning. Poor old motorcycle sim games seem to live in the shadow of their four wheeled brethren and are usually reserved for a more niche audience as a result. The...
Milestone releases a large number of racing games every year. Some of them aren’t half bad, such as Gravel, while others, chiefly its motorcycle games, leave something to be desired. Unfortunately, MXGP Pro is one of the motorcycle games, and while this is nowhere near as bad as the absolute debacle that was MXGP 3, it’s a definite step...
Sorry to aggravate the aggregate heads, but Gravel isn’t actually about everyone’s favourite loose collection of rock fragments – sadly, it’s only a fun arcade racer. Coming from the motorheads at racing game specialists Milestone, Gravel focuses less on raw simulation and more on down-and-dirty off-road action, delivering an...
Racing games are dime a dozen, but while most focus on cars or more “extreme” sports, it’s relatively slim pickings when it comes to motocross and supercross. They were more common a couple of generations ago, but now Italian dev Milestone practically stand alone when it comes to getting licensed motocross games out the door. While...
Crash and burn
In 2014, Milestone – a dev with a very long history working with motorcycle games – launched a new series with MXGP: The Official Motocross Videogame. While it was an alright title, it didn’t exactly blow us away. Skip ahead to present day and Milestone has released the third entry in the series. During that time, has...
Keep on ridin'
When it comes to racing, there's a raw thrill… An adrenaline rush that can't be explained. In terms of gaming, it's a genre that's much beloved and for good reason, whether it be arcade-style or simulation-based. Italian developer Milestone is no stranger to the racing genre, and last year it put out a motorcycle-sim racer called...
The wheels on the bike go round and round
Milestone: the developer that never sleeps. Seriously. The Italian studio's only just shipped two-wheeler RIDE, but it's already talking MotoGP 15. To be fair, we're a little bit late with this story, so slap our saddle rash and let's get on with it, because we'd honestly rather be in bed than writing...
Twist those handlebars
Not content with MotoGP 14 and the upcoming enhanced edition of MXGP, Italian outfit Milestone has announced a new motorcycle title for the PlayStation 4 named RIDE. Also due out on the PlayStation 3, the game promises to take superbike racing off the track, with a variety of city, country, and historical circuits for you to...
Ring the alarm
Flat presentation prevented motocross simulation MXGP from reaching its full potential on the PlayStation 3, but fresh from the excellent next-gen edition of MotoGP 14, Italian outfit Milestone will be hoping that the added power of the PlayStation 4 will help to land its other two-wheeled racer in a podium position. Due out later...
Our infallible scientific studies suggest that many MotoGP stars endured multiple bumps on their bonces from a very early age. Asphalt icons such as Valentino Rossi and reigning champion Marc Márquez make average adrenaline junkies look like cucumber sandwich scranning stick-in-the-muds – and that’s before they even climb onto...
For a system that’s selling extraordinarily well, the PlayStation 4 is seriously short on racing games. Sure, the ambitious Need for Speed: Rivals serves up a great time, but once you’ve drinked in all of Redview County’s fictional views, there’s not a lot left to do. DriveClub and The Crew are right around the corner, of course, but...
The latest entry in Milestone’s annual motorbike racing simulation is set to make its debut on next-gen platforms imminently, with MotoGP 14 ready to burn rubber on the PlayStation 4. Ahead of the fast approaching release, the Italian developer recently conducted a press tour around Europe, which has culminated in the high octane...
Following the closure of previous developer Monumental Games, Milestone has announced that it’s taken the handlebars of the official MotoGP license, announcing MotoGP 13 for PlayStation 3 and Vita. The title's set to release at some point in June. The Italian outfit promises to have “re-invented” the franchise, with new physics...
Up and go
Despite committing a number of its titles to the PlayStation Vita, Italian outfit Milestone has decided not to release its upcoming arcade racing spin-off WRC Powerslide on the handheld. Chatting to us overnight, the company revealed that the title will be coming to consoles only when it releases in early 2013. “We are working on a new...
If your thumbs aren’t capable of controlling a rally car in Milestone’s annual WRC series, then perhaps the Italian outfit’s upcoming arcade spin-off will be more up your alley. Set to release in early 2013, WRC Powerslide will deliver a “frenetic” twist on the offroad motorsport, complete with arcade physics and a new...
Black Bean Games and Milestone has released a new trailer for the upcoming WRC 2
The licensed title features all of the racers and teams from the 2011 season, in addition to a whopping 90 stages, 15 locations, 25 different types of terrain and dynamic weather conditions. Black Bean's promising improvements in the game's career mode too, with greater variety and gameplay features. The game's due out..
You may have heard of Superstars V8 Racing -- the game launched on PlayStation 3 in Europe last year
The game was limited by a retail release and minimal marketing budget, but the game actually reviewed fairly well. A year later, it has a greater shot at success in the US as it will be released on the PlayStation Network for $19.99. O-Games are...
