Summary: I love this game! It's fun to unlock new bikes and choose you leathers and helmet for your rider. Upgrading the bikes is very nice to say the least. For some reason, the game kind of reminds me of an older Gran Turismo..but for bikes. I like that. You get street bikes and sport bikes of varying sizes and hp. A good number of tracks are there to race on..the ones through the mountainous areas are a lot of fun. I could use some better graphics..
Summary: (...)Riding Spiris is a good game overall. The handling takes time to geet used to but [once] u learn when to brake its pretty fun. lots of good bikes. you earn money fast and in big amounts. oh yeah. for all u retards that think u can stop on a dime with a bike when you're goin 180 mph....you're wrong. try braking well before the turn.
Summary: Ugh. I was hoping this game would be like GT3, unfortunatly it's not. It shouldn't even be mentioned in the same breath. PRO's Lot of tracks Can upgrade your helmet, suit, & motorcycle Lots of Bikes CON's Third person view only!! Whats the use in buying upgrades & bikes when you can't see them while racing. You only see them when you crash. Boring track designs OK graphics Brakes don't brake. It's the same as releasing the gas. No quick stops??
Summary: this is one of the worst bike racing games i have played. remeber RoadRash for the genesis i would rather play that. i road race my R6 and i play the heck out of my ps2. this game doesnt do credit to either one. i played RS for all of 4 hours and took it back.
Summary: This is the best PS2 bike game available. It isn't perfect, the soundtrack is lacking and the graphics are nothing special. I do however enjoy the physics modelling and gameplay. If you brake while leaned over in a curve the bike will tend to stand up/run wide (very much like my own road going sport bike). The arcade modes are probably too hard for most but the career mode (Riding Spirit) is tonnes of fun.
Summary: I've been looking forward to the release of this game since I first saw it advertised months before it came out. Maybe that anticipation built up my expectations too much. I was really looking forward to a motorcycle version of my favorite game Gran Turismo 3. This game is for better or worse the closest thing out there right now. MotoGP is a great game with good looking graphics and challenging game play but is limited to GP bikes and race tracks.
Summary: My son (4 years old) recieved a PSII for Christmas along with RS and several other games. So far he has shown little interest in the other games but can't get enough of RS. It took him a while to figure out how to stear but once he got the hang of it he was hooked. Of coarse, he always comes in last and sticks to the simplest of tracks but that doesn't bother him in the least. He loves being able to pick his own bike, gear and helmet and reacing against his dad.
Summary: With the populararity of the Grand Turismo and other racing simulators at an all-time high, it was only a matter of time before motorcyles got the treatment as well. In fact the fans have been clamoring for some kind of satisfaction regardless of incarnation. The result of such a demand is Riding Spirits. And while some of you may not notice its incredible resmblance to a certain award-winning franchise, it's quality of gameplay doesn't quite stack up.
Summary: After the first hour or two (which were a little frustrating), I was hooked. This game is way better than either of the Moto GP games. If you really like motorcycles, you shouldn't be disappointed.
