GameSpot writes: "Aside from the controls, the biggest difference between Ride and its recent predecessors is the structure. The open world has been removed here, replaced with mini challenges and events that keep the focus on riding rather than exploration. All told, Ride is interesting at this point. It feels so different from other skateboarding games that it's a little difficult to get the hang of at first, but it does replicate the feeling of the actual sport better than a hand-held controller. Ride is scheduled for release later this year".
