“The racing genre has often strived for realism and authenticity, so it’s great to see a motorcycle game delivering some serious options for two-wheel enthusiasts. Having just launched our Guinness World Records 2017 Gamer’s Edition, there’s every chance now that Ride2 could be haring into next year’s book…” added Stephen Daultrey – Editor of The Guinness World Record Gamers Edition.
