RiMS Racing by Raceward Studio and Nacon is the first motorbike simulation to combine a realistic challenge with engineering and mechanics. The game features some of the most powerful motorbikes in the world and ten faithfully recreated official circuits. In addition, there are five routes set in the scenic landscapes of the United States, Australia, Spain, and Italy. Players must master the accurate and realistic physics while analyzing their performance with the Motorbike Status Check to win races. Off the track, there’s plenty to do, too, with a career mode that gives you full control of a team. Thanks to the mechanics management system, players will become very familiar with the more than 500 official spare parts featured in the game! Check out the video below to see RiMS in action as we look at the settings and run through the full career mode tutorial
WRC 10 continues to improve on this longstanding series with new tracks, a new livery editor as well as other tweaks and updates. It is still a lot of fun to play, and career mode is as addictive as ever, but don’t expect anything radically new or different compared to last year. Fans who may have skipped out on the previous two entries on the Epic Game Store will get the most out of this one, but even veterans should enjoy the new locations, historic rallies, and legendary cars.
Gameplay: Enough settings to make the game as accessible as you want it to be.
Graphics: The cars look as good as always, and some of the tracks are very scenic.
Sound: The sound effects are authentic, and the co-driver is actually helpful
WRC 10 is the latest installment of the popular off-road racing simulation by KT Racing and Nacon.

Until recently, players who wanted their fix of freestyle motocross gaming had to bust out a Nintendo Switch to play Urban Trial Tricky. However, PC, Xbox One, and Playstation 4 owners will soon be able to join in the fun with the upcoming release of Urban Trial Tricky™ Deluxe Edition by Tate Multimedia. The game won the Gold prize in the “Best Nintendo Switch – Casual Game” category at the NYX Game Awards and features a vibrant world crammed with ramps, jumps, and obstacles for players to conquer
NACON and RaceWard Studio have released a brand new trailer for the upcoming RiMS Racing ahead of its launch next month. The game already caused a stir during its Steam Next Fest appearance, where several thousand PC players were able to take the exclusive demo for a spin
Redout revives the anti-gravity racing genre with beautiful tracks that can be raced at blistering speeds. The career mode has enough events and tracks to keep players busy for ages and the physics-based racing feels very intuitive once mastered. It’s not an easy game, but players who stick with it will have a lot of fun.
Gameplay: One of the fastest racers on the market.
Graphics: Eye-catching environments that look great at high speed.
Sound: The dynamic soundtrack with full 5.1 support sounds great
Need For Speed: Rivals fuses some of the best elements of Hot Pursuit and Most Wanted. The exotic cars and scenic open-world setting of Rivals make for exhilarating races and chases while the ability to play as either racers or cops adds some variety to the mix. The locked framerate can be overcome, but it’s still a baffling inclusion and the heavy emphasis on online play will also be an annoyance to solo players. However, despite the flaws, this is still a great entry in the series and a lot of fun to play.
Gameplay: Fast and frantic, but some players might find it a little too easy.
Graphics: The Frostbite 3 engine is used to great effect in this game.
Sound: Decent soundtrack, overly dramatic voice acting, and good sound effects
Need for Speed: Most Wanted might share a name with the 2005 original and feature police chases, but that’s about where the similarities end. The single-player mode feels bland and empty while the multiplayer mode has more in common with Burnout Paradise than Need for Speed. In fact, the entire game feels like an inferior Need for Speed themed imitation of Burnout Paradise, which makes it hard to recommend.
Gameplay: Very lacking compared to previous entries in the series.
Graphics: The graphics are good, but the overall style of the game is very bland.
Sound: The usual selection of licensed tunes, but nothing exceptional
