This Ride to Hell teaser does not exactly inspire confidence

Ride to Hell, from Deep Silver, appeals to my interests. An open-world game set in the late sixties, centered around a motorcycle gang in California has a lot of potential. And when I heard that the designers were using Hunter S. Thompson’s classic book, Hell’s Angels, to assist in setting the tone and help provide a historical perspective, I grew very interested in seeing more.

Now they release this… thing. It’s only supposed to be a “teaser,” but it doesn’t really tease much of anything at all. The desert environment looks pretty good, which is nice because that’s all the video has. The bikes and characters look pretty lackluster,  just as they did back in August when the first screens started circulating (which, frankly, appear ripped straight out of this teaser). 

I don’t want to be too critical of something as minor as this. Since it’s probably too late for that, I will say that two minutes of guys aimlessly riding choppers through barren desert while “Born to be Wild” plays is not what I expect will build early hype for the title. I still have hope because I desperately want to see a game with this premise be fantastic. So far, I’m still living in a fantasy world.
