    We've seen worse, but this is still a disgraceful payment system. [July 2014, p.79]

    If you can deal with the business model, or are happy to waste a few hours before abandoning the game entirely, Trials Frontier is pretty, fairly playable, and reasonably fun. But stick around and the veneer is soon stripped away to reveal endless, soulless grinding to appease cartoon simpletons.

    Trials Frontier is a game where you can play it for a week and not get bored immideatly. Unfortunately, the game got an issue with questTrials Frontier is a game where you can play it for a week and not get bored immideatly. Unfortunately, the game got an issue with quest progression when you get to the tier 3 bikes and though it may seem like coins aren't an issue in the game, they will be quickly after 2-3 weeks of playing. Gems aren't difficult to get hold of. The fortune wheel after each track can be manipulated to get gems multiple times in a row or whatever item you want. There are no issues of playing this game without paying anything, it's just that the game is littered with the option to use gems.

    There are a few good things about it. The hourly slot machine is a good twist to the game and gives you a good amount of stuff if you use it a few times per day. Using it more gives you better rewards but the challenges get slightly more difficult. Which is good as this game franchise is all about skill progression. ANBA is a good tool to improve your times, even though sometimes it's choosing tracks that are difficult to get a better time on. And then there's the amount of tracks in the game. Right now I have about 55 tracks unlocked and about half of the map uncovered, but then you have the issue with the fuel, so you can't play all of them frequently.
    Then you have the most important thing. It's Trials and it got a good physics engine, you're still controlling the rider, not the bike when leaning. You can't complain that this game 'is the same **** as everything else'.

    There's a lot of things that can be done better and smoother. Some of the prices for things in game and in-app purchases should be lowered, at this moment a lot of them are very high. And there are many things that needs change, but are impossible to change unless RedLynx wants to completely change the F2P model of the game. But you should definitely try this game if you haven't played Trials before (and if you have). You can play this game for a while during the initial 10 levels without having to wait for fuel and then decide if it's worth it or not.

    An utterly despicable game using despicable methods to make you pay to win. Why not release it at a fixed price? I would have gladly boughtAn utterly despicable game using despicable methods to make you pay to win. Why not release it at a fixed price? I would have gladly bought it. After a while you hit a wall where the game pits you against online players who have the better bikes and gear.. Why do that? Then you have tracks that are impossible to complete unless you pay to upgrade your bike... The amount you pay to get a full experience is more than quadruple the price of a console game and you could then buy a console too. If you want to progress normally like a console Trials game, I'm talking £79 $79 for a bunch of coins... Same price for diamonds and so on. Yeah back to the progress wall that you hit... You get to missions that you can't complete... Characters that you can't win against... Pitted against live opponents who have more power you... Then your story missions dry out because you can't get anywhere!! All geared to force you to pay. I'm not paying over £100 and more for a trials game on a mobile phone. Not when the superior console versions have never been more than £20. So yeah after I couldn't get anywhere there was no choice but to delete it. The one single point I give it is that it was ok while it lasted. What a waste of my time. Avoid. Full Review »
