    [UPDATED REVIEW]: When I posted my initial impressions of Urban Trial Freestyle last week, I wasn't exactly bowled over by Sony's answer to Xbox Live crowd pleaser, Trials HD. However, now that I've spent more time with this racer-come-platformer, I was wrong. I admit it.

However, now that I've spent more time with this racer-come-platformer, I was wrong. I admit it. Okay, my beef regarding the graphics still stands, but the part that matters, really matters, is of course the gameplay. And in that department it's absolutely fantastic! Once I found my groove and got into the swing of it's two-wheeled, stunt oriented, 2D platforming, and looked past the presentation issues, I found Urban Trial Freestyle to be a whole heap of fun. Not only did I occasionally find myself giggling out loud at the rag doll physics that regularly threw my rider into the air and squished his head, I also regularly found myself saying WOW! at some exceptional level design and savage, vertigo-inducing, death-defying stunts. Seriously, if you're open to the idea of a spot of Trials-esque shenanigans on your Vita, despite my initial lukewarm impressions, I wholeheartedly recommend giving Urbal Trial Freestyle a go. Well, with one very small caveat at least and that is *IF* like me, you don't quite click with it at first, just try to exercise a little more patience than I did! [ORIGINAL REVIEW, POSTED 20 FEBRUARY]: It's still very early yet, but I just thought I'd put some impressions out there for my fellow Vita gamers. Unfortunately, in terms of both gameplay and visuals, I must admit to feeling a little underwhelmed so far. I should also point out that the vast majority (if not all) of the screenshots and trailers that we've been drip fed over the past weeks and months appear to be from the superior PS3 version. Furthermore, although I'm pretty certain that Vita could have handled it with room to spare, Tate Multimedia have dumbed down the visuals, and stripped away all of the rather nifty background vehicles and characters for Vita owning petrol heads. I was also hoping that in an effort to out-Trials Trials HD (of Xbox 360 notoriety), Tate would have pulled out all the stops, but that doesn't appear to be the case either. I'll be sure to post some more detailed impressions in the next day or two, but as a heads up, I'd definitely advise caution for now, and recommend trying out the free trial (see what I did there??!!) version before jumping in and grabbing it blind like I did.

    It's a good game, really funny on Playstation Vita.
    It has good graphic, a solid gameplay (if you've played Trials HD or Trials Evolution, it's the same gameplay), it has 50-60 levels and it isn't so easy to complete.
    For €9.99 (or €7.99 if you've PS Plus) it worth.
    Just a thing a really hated: the bugged trophy. DAMNIT WHY?!

    Pleasantly surprised. Played the demo and didn't get much from it, but picked it up as part of PS+ and have to say it is a lot of fun. Addictive to the point of wanting to smash things after you have tried 27 times to get your jump a little higher, longer, faster etc. Love the photo on the billboard, the ghosts etc. I can see it won't last for months, but it is getting a huge bash at the moment

    For what it's worth, Urban Trial Freestyle is good. The physics-based racing is still challenging, and the constant presence of leaderboards for each level and each trick ensures some level of replayability. For Vita owners, the game is more interesting because there's nothing like it for the platform yet.

    This game is a whole lot of fun and extremely addictive, with its graphics being appealingly realistic (nice camera panning included), so that you quickly become completely absorbed. Urban Trial Freestyle easily motivates you so that you don’t even realize that you give a track the 25th try.

    It as a solid Trials Evolution clone through and through – minus the editor and the excellent level design.
