Announced and released on the same day as Ubisoft's E3 conference, Trials of the Blood Dragon is a bright neon-lit '80s action spectacle where fluro headbands are part of every covert soldier's attire. And it's a game that is weirdly both a single-player Trials experience, and a quasi-sequel to the excellent Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. So yeah, confusing in more ways than one.

So how does it fare? Well, not very good.
Right of the bat it should be made clear that Trials of the Blood Dragon is strictly a single-player story-driven game. Each level is introduced via an animated sequence whilst also being peppered with dialogue between the main characters from beginning to end. For a game in the Trials series it’s kind of a big ask to be suddenly inundated with story, and with no multiplayer or online component outside of leader boards, you’ll quickly begin to wonder what kind of story requires driving a dirt bike through obstacles in order to save the world. Turns out not much of a story, and one that is equally forgettable as it is overstuffed with nods to 80s and early 90s pop culture.

Dang, what a shame. I'm a huge trials fan and liked the first Blood Dragon, but they do seem like too unlikely an affair.

If they want 80s Trials, just watch the movie Rad and make it BMXs with tuffs
