This is what happens when you give a bad YouTuber an even worse video game...
Genre: Racing
Platforms: Microsoft Windows
PlayStation 4
Xbox One
Nintendo Switch
Release Date: November 1, 2019
Game Engine: Unreal Engine 4
Developer: 3DClouds
Publisher: Outright Games
Made in: Italy


Race with Ryan is a 2019 racing game developed by 3DClouds and published by Outright Games, released for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, Nintendo Switch, and Microsoft Windows. The game is based on the YouTube channel Ryan's World.

In October 2020, an updated version of the game, Race with Ryan: Road Trip Deluxe Edition, was released, featuring additional tracks and characters.

Why It Sucks

  1. Generic title and the logo looks like it was made by a kindergartner. (Which is ironic since Ryan was 8-years-old and in 2nd grade during the development of this game). Sound familiar?
    • Deluxe Edition's cover is just the same as the original cover, but Ryan was changed, including the logo, and it informs the player it has new tracks and racers.
    • It has exactly the same logo as the YouTube channel but with a different name slapped into it.
  2. The box art looks like if Ryan himself was copied-and-pasted/color-screened into it, just like Pop Idol.
  3. Cheap-looking graphics, even for late eighth-generation console standards. They look like an early seventh-generation console game or an HD-resolution PS2 game, despite running on Unreal Engine 4.
  4. The game's source code is a fork of Xenon Racer, which in turn is a fork of All-Star Fruit Racing, given that these games were also developed by 3DClouds. The Cutting Room Floor has a page that shows both the former's leftover content, making this game a reskin of a reskin.
  5. Unoriginal cup names, such as "Hook Prize", "Pizza Cup", and "Hotdog Cup".
  6. The game is very short, and can be beaten in 30 minutes or less.
  7. Horrible collision, especially when you crash into the walls.
  8. The AI is terrible to the point where you can easily crash into them, even if they crash into a wall first.
  9. The controls are abysmal and they feel broken most of the time.
  10. If you get anything other than 1st place, it counts as a loss. This can easily encourage kids to be sore losers.
  11. The kart is chosen with the character you choose, and this time, there is more than one of the same characters. They're just occupations.
  12. The characters are very lame, with most of them being anthropomorphic animals. Some of them also look very bizarre, such as the alligator named Gus and the penguin named Peck.
  13. One of the characters can only be unlocked if you play the game for over 2 hours, which is the exact amount of time it takes for a Steam game to be played before it can be refunded.
  14. The cutscenes are just Ryan Kaji himself and his parents playing the game, and some of them are poorly shot, poorly written, poorly animated, or poorly lip-synced. The latter two can be blamed on Adobe Character Animator, the software used.
  15. Poor voice acting. In fact, it sounds like Ryan was the only voice actor, which you can hear a whole lot. Such as game menus, cutscenes, gameplay, etc.
    • Plus, he never shuts up. And on top of that, it sometimes sounds like he's too close to the microphone.
    • The dialogue in general is painful to listen to.
  16. Ryan keeps appearing an awful lot during a race, which gets very annoying fast, looking like he is shoehorned into every single game.
  17. Poor product placement, such as the Surprise Eggs acting like the item boxes from games like Crash Team Racing and Mario Kart.
  18. The Road Trip pack and Deluxe Edition (both released in 2020) barely add anything new to the game.
  19. Overall, the game is a shallow and cynical cash grab aimed at promoting the Ryan's World brand.
  20. The game costs $40 at launch when you could be buying other bad racing games like Garfield Kart for $1 or a good racing game like Trackmania for free.

Reception

On Metacritic, the Nintendo Switch version of Race with Ryan received an average score of 51/100 based on four reviews, indicating "mixed or average" reviews. Nintendo Life gave it a 4/10 rating.

Yeah, this game is THE WORST Racing game IMO and OF ALL TIME. Even a Chinese Wrcade racing game inspired by Wangan Midnight: "Fast Beat Loop Racer GT" which came out on Steam in 2018, is Much better than this Shameless cashgrab.

Heck, my first Nintendo Switch game will be Mario Kart and Smash Bros....

At least Mario kart has original Cup titles. Heck, one of my concept race games had color names for each cup and that sounds more original. Hot dog cup just sounds like something from Sonic and Sega all-stars. Now imagine if this game got ported to the 3ds.
