A review: http://arstechnica.com/gaming/news/2009/08/trials-hd-impresses-with-violence-physics-and-insanity.ars?comments=1

One of those physics-puzzle games but more action-ish. I'm enjoying it, the difficulty level increases at a reasonable pace (doesnt get TOO Hard TOO quickly), and the presentation is great. I've just started to go back and work on getting gold medal on each track.

The level editor is f*****g amazing but the level sharing is friends-only through no fault of the developers. Microsoft are just f*****g dense.

as in trial riding

Umm, what?

Edit - Oh I see:

Motorcycle trials, also termed observed trials, is a non-speed competition on specialized motorcycles. Trial motorcycles are distinctive in that they are extremely lightweight, and since they are designed to be ridden standing up, they have no seats. Also, their suspension travel is shorter than other off-road bikes, such as motocross or enduro motorcycles. In trials competitions, the riders surmount obstacles and points are deducted if the rider puts his feet on the ground, goes outside the marked course, or fails to clear an obstacle. The sports of trials is administered internationally by the FIM.

Forget bionic commando, turtles in time & marvel vs capcom 2 (easy now let's now get too carried away) BUT this game is one of the best arcade games you'll download (on xbl). Big call but damn it's that good. From the visuals, to customization to extra content & replay value it's all there and it's great bang for buck.

It's awesome how it directly compares your times and progress with your friend's list while you play in the game, making it more competitive and boosting it's replay value even more.

Get it!

Then Add me!

p.s. Maxe, nfi how you managed to get 31 rings of fire in the skill games but i've topped some of your other times ;)

p.s. We should get a list of all qgl peeps who have the game and their xbl tags so we can have massif qgl trial off.

My gamertag is natsau

I'm not sure i'll ever get bronze on all the tracks. If you haven't found it yet, check out the leaderboards as there's a replay feature for the top riders which (in theory) at least helps to understand the hard tracks as it shows on screen what buttons the person is pushing
