After a first succesfull installment TT Isle of Man is back for a second round on the famous island that pits racers to the most fierce circuit in the world. Racing on an ultra-technical track of more than 60 km at breakneck speed requiring realistic driving skills … this is the challenge that awaits you in TT2! Many new features await you: open world, reworked physics, classic motorcycles and more.
In TT Isle of Man – Ride On the Edge 2, you prove your worth in various championships before setting off to conquer the Snaefell Mountain Course, a 60 km long track with curvy and straight sections that will push your riding skills to the limit. TT 2 offers 17 additional tracks, 18 different motorcycles, including classic models, and official riders. Now more realistic than ever, thanks to completely redesigned physics and faithfully reproduced bicycle movements. Refine your bike, improve its performance and monitor its data in real time to stay competitive. TT2 also offers a whole new open world where you can test the parameters of your bike and gain the experience you will need to win the TT Isle of Man title!
The strong point of this title lies in the speed felt when driving at full speed, although I dare to hope for a good big update to give a helping hand to the frame rate – which tears away greatly at times, the visuals also suffer due to the low resolution. At times, it can give certain problems to clearly see everything that is happening on the track. At least the same level of content is still present in the Nintendo Switch version as on other platforms. The huge career mode still allows you to climb the ranks, from Supersport to Superbike, and earn your place in the main TT event, customize motorcycles, meet challenges and even more for many hours of play.
With such an impressive and epic feeling of speed on narrow roads, this game delivers authentic and exhilarating very high speed sound. The feeling is perfect. Purists will love this side and despite the many visual problems we feel that the game is only a few updates away to give the visual spectacle that the Switch is able to give. Obviously, we will not have the rendering of the Xbox One X, but we are fortunate to have a portable console on the market which can make such a large and massive game run.
In the end, a game that still requires a bit of development on the Switch version, but we feel, despite certain faults, that there is a title of very high quality that is waiting to be deployed to its full potential on the hybrid console of Nintendo. As a fan of pure speed, you have a whole challenge ahead of you and a lot of hours of play.
TT Isle of Man: Ride on the Edge 2 gives you a great sensation of speed. Although it suffers on the visual side, it can still be the perfect racing game for fans of motorcycles.
