    Trials Frontier could have been an excellent Trials experience on the iOS platform if not for the free-to-play business model. The game is riddled with tasks involving grinding and time sinks, all in an attempt to encourage the player to purchase resources, and that becomes expensive fairly quickly if one wants normal gameplay progression. Verdict: Not recommended.

    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 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 aAn 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. Expand

    This is probably the most frustrating game i have ever wasted my time on. It is based upon the 'pay to win play to lose' concept, giving you a mission to first race an oppenent and then spin a wheel to get a CHANCE to win the item you need, otherwise go back and try again. Some tracks are intentionally made impossible to complete without paying diamonds which are nearly impossible to getThis is probably the most frustrating game i have ever wasted my time on. It is based upon the 'pay to win play to lose' concept, giving you a mission to first race an oppenent and then spin a wheel to get a CHANCE to win the item you need, otherwise go back and try again. Some tracks are intentionally made impossible to complete without paying diamonds which are nearly impossible to get your hands on without paying up. Otherwise it can be a lot of fun To a certain point whereafter it gets stupid difficult and you will be spamming the retry button. I dont recommend wasting your time with this piece of s&!%. Expand

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

    Frontier doesn't stand so well on its own, but it's a neat free appetiser. [Issue#249, p.77]

    Trials Frontier looks and is controlled like a Trials game, but the free-to-play elements are so rooted that you can’t ignore them, and you’ll probably leave the game very soon.
