TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 Slides onto the Switch

We covered the original release of TT Isle of Man – Ride on the Edge 2 a couple of months back when it hit the PC and other consoles, and liked it quite a bit. Now, Milestone is back on the Switch with Ride on the Edge 2 being playable both on the TV and on the go with the hybrid console. Ride on the Edge 2 pits you against not only other drivers, but the legendary Isle of Man TT course. It’s full of fast corners and long straights where high speeds can either lead to success or failure.

As with Milestone’s other games, expect realistic physics models for biking and wear and tear as the race goes on. The devs worked with two professional riders to help ensure that the game was as accurate as possible. The 38 mile course has been lovingly recreated in the game and there are 17 additional tracks to enjoy alongside a career mode, with over two dozen playable riders and 13 official TT bikes available. If you’re hankering for a simulation-based motorcycle experience on the Switch, you can get the game now via the eShop for $59.99.

The Switch version looks fairly impressive on-screen, with TV playback showcasing some slick lighting and detailed texture work on the roads and tires. The frame rate is also pretty smooth, but does take a bit of a hit in portable mode. Playing with a pro controller feels natural and while you do lack analog trigger on that pad, you can still get subtle braking by moving the left stick back to replicate it. On the go, the small analog nubs aren’t ideal for intricate control, but if you have a console grip, that will help a ton and makes using the also-small triggers a bit more comfortable as well. It’s one of the finer-looking racing games on the Switch period, and I can’t think of any motorcycle racers that top its graphics on the platform yet.
