SGO RiMS Racing Review
For those who may want to give RiMS Racing a spin, SportsGamersOnline’s Managing Editor Mike Straw reviewed the game here. Check out an excerpt from his review below.
“It feels like every time you blink, a new racing game is released. Whether it’s stock car, street racing, or motorcycles, there’s something for almost any kind of racing game out there for you. RiMS Racing is the latest option… Gameplay wise, RiMS feels great on the bike. The haptic feedback on the DualSense is, once again, a great addition to a game. It really makes any sort of racing game feel more responsive and enjoyable than anything I’ve ever experienced. Aside from the racing itself, the rest of the game falls extremely flat.”
