Riders Republic review: an open-world racing game that lets you do whatever you want

A massive open world playground with a blend of many different disciplines, Riders Republic is a game that doesn’t take itself too seriously, puts fun first and lets you decide how and what you want to progress. Riders Republic starts with a multisport race at the very beginning that serves as a teaser as to what you can expect from the game. It’s high octane, fast and frantic, and once you’ve configured your controls you are shown to the hub area, Riders Ridge. You’ll meet two very enthusiastic characters that’ll be your guides for the rest of the game (they…

Riders Republic review: a free roaming extreme sports theme park

Riders Republic is a multiplayer open world sports game developed by Ubisoft Annecy, in which every single character talks like they’re your mum’s new boyfriend after they find a bong in your sock drawer. And, hey, like, we get it, y’know, we all like to “hang loose” on Tik Tok sometimes, but – at this point Gareth the 43-year-old divorcé grabs a chair, spins it 180 degrees and sits on it in one smooth motion – dope just isn’t on fleek, fam. Insufferable cutscenes aside, this is a thrilling downhill racing simulator in which you, a new arrival to a…

Riders Republic is most fun when it turns into a platformer

Having given Riders Republic a go over its free-to-play day, I can confirm that it really leans into Ubisoft’s current obsession. Splashes of yellow and pink with the word “Blamo!” graffitied over the top, that whole thing. This is a Forza Horizon-esque trip, only you’re not going to a pleasant festival in a car, you’re going to an extreme sports resort with a roving band of TikTokers. Swerve through the cringe on your bike, though, and there’s some decent fun to be had. And for me, this wasn’t so much in the game’s fast and furious moments, but when it…
