  • Review RIDE 4 (PS5) - A Motorcycle Crash Felt from the Inside of the DualSense

    Wheelie not very good

    Next-gen upgrades are a fantastic way to give a game extra polish and enhance the overall experience by taking advantage of the more powerful hardware.

    Jump the gate

    The MXGP titles have been slowly inching their way forward through the years, generally only seeing minor changes with each iteration.

  • News RIDE 4 Is the Latest Motorbike Sim from Milestone, Arrives on PS4 This October

    Ride or die

RIDE 4 is the latest entry, just unveiled with the above trailer, and it's not looking too shabby...

  • Review MotoGP 20 - Another Exciting Ride, If You Can Handle It

    A tricky balancing act

    Milestone has made a name for itself as the de facto developer of motorbike racing games. If you trace it back, the Italian studio has been crafting this niche subset of racers for about 20 years. To say it has experience with two-wheeled motorsport would be a grave understatement. However, despite its expertise and dedication...

  • Mini Review Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 3 - Nights and Bikes

    On yer bike

    Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame 3 – or, to give it its full title and pad out our word count, Monster Energy AMA Supercross 3 FIM World Championship: The Official Video Game – proves that Milestone may just be the most prolific developer of the generation. By our count, this is its 20th title on the PlayStation 4...

  • Review Monster Energy Supercross: The Official Videogame - A Disappointing Ride

    Road rash

    Republished on Wednesday 27th November 2019: We're bringing this review back from the archives following the announcement of December's PlayStation Plus lineup. The original text follows.

  • Review RIDE 3 - High-Octane Motorcycle Realism

    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...

    Review MXGP Pro

    MXGP Con

    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...

    Review Gravel

    Vin Gravel

    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...

    Review MXGP 3

    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.

Italian developer Milestone is no stranger to the racing genre, and last year it put out a motorcycle-sim racer called...

  • News MotoGP 15 Returns to the Saddle on PS4, PS3 This Spring

    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 about...

  • News Milestone Scrubs Up MXGP for PS4 Release This Fall

    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...

    Review MotoGP 14

    Top Márquez

    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...

  • News Racing Sim MotoGP 14 Starts Its Engine on PS4 in Europe


    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...

    Slip slidin'

    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.

    You may have heard of Superstars V8 Racing -- the game launched on PlayStation 3 in Europe last year
