The only thing more fun than riding motorcycles is playing video games. Add motorcycles to videogames and you’re onto a winner, so here are some of the best motorcycle games for the Xbox One console.
Featuring 230 different motorcycles licensed from all the major manufacturers, including cafe racers, supermotards, superbikes and others, Ride 2 has something for every kind of biker. Billed as the Gran Tourismo of motorcycle games, it allows players to tune and modify their bikes with hundreds of tweaks and accessories.
Ride 2 features thirty different motorcycle tracks, including the Nurburgring, Monza, Donington, and city tracks such as Miami and Milan. On top of all this, the game delivers the most accurate physics available in a motorcycle simulation, bringing you as close to the real thing as it’s possible to get.
MX vs. ATV: Supercross Encore – 2017 Official Track Edition
If you like to get muddy on a motorcycle, this is the game for you. Compete against computer controlled players, online multiplayer (with up to 12 riders) or one on one split-screen in off road super-cross races.
The game features over 35 tracks, including 16 official 2017 Super-cross Championship courses. With all of the official bikes, riders and sponsors licensed in the game, this is an authentic experience for fans of Super-cross. The franchise has been around for a few years now, and this version brings it up to date with current generation console graphics and gameplay.
MotoGP16: Valentino Rossi
Ever wished you were a MotoGP champion? Well you’re not, but with this game you can pretend to be one. Follow in the footsteps of The Doctor, Valentino Rossi, one of the world’s most talented motorcycle racers.
The game leads players through Rossi’s career, starting in 1996, to complete various challenges and build up the skills that help him rise to the top of the pack and become world champion.
This popular MotoGP simulation franchise hasn’t been updated since 2015, but that version is still pretty solid. It was never released in the American market, but it proved popular with European fans and you can get hold of a UK import from Amazon – the good news is that the Brits speak the same language as us, so there aren’t any translation problems.
If you love MotoGP, this game is the most accurate reproduction of the series. It includes a historic game mode, which lets you play with bikes from the nineties, including those monstrous 500cc two-stroke machines they used to race.
