    Trials Evolution is really the best Xbox Live Arcade game to date. It is challenging, it is fun and the new courses are brilliant. For 1.200 Microsoft Points you will get a huge amount of content.

    Overall, Trials Evolution is definitely one of the best Xbox Live Arcade titles available, if not the best. The title improves on everything from its predecessor and goes one step further with the incredible track editor and the addition of multiplayer. Other developers take note: this is how sequels should be done.

    Trials Evolution is so good that the award for downloadable game of the year may already be locked up.

    With a new multiplayer mode, a new type of race for up to four players, a better editor and a giant world where to build our very personal track, Trials Evolution is without any doubt one of the most fun games on Xbox Live Arcade to date.

    So finely honed that it should be appreciated by a massive swath of people, from hardcore 2D platforming fans to racing fans to editor junkies to, well, douches who like rap/rock remixes and Ed Hardy tees.

    With dozens upon dozens of tracks to complete by yourself or with friends both on the couch and online, skill games to break up the traditional track racing and obstacle coursing, and an insanely in-depth, user friendly track creator that should extend the life of the game and the Trials community immensely, the game is a rock solid purchase for the price.

    It adds visual punch, improved multiplayer, a better sense of progression (as new licenses must now be acquired to unlock further tracks) and an intimidatingly powerful editor with the potential to punt the game's longevity into the stratosphere. For 1,200 MP this is as unmissable an XBLA title as its predecessor and, while it's not quite an evolution, it's certainly an example of intelligent design.

    Just WOW!. although i put down the original Trials HD sometime ago, it didn't put the slightest shadow over my eyes when i heard the Trials Evo was on its way. What an improvement (not that much improvement was required). the bottomless possibilities with the level editor and the 3 hours of fun ive already had re-playing level after level. For 1200msp Redlynx have gone above and beyond.

    Incredibly fun and incredibly challenging. You'll want to throw your controller and you'll shout and the screen so often but it's impossible to resist playing. So much content. Expand

    This game is so good. I would give it a 10 and say that there is nothing wrong and it is the best game on XBLA, but the music ruins it. If you ignore the music, the game is awesome and even with it, it is still one of the best games on XBLA. Expand

    The "evolution" that has taken place from Trials HD to Trials Evolution is very impressive. Red Lynx has had 3 years to perfect this game, and it is no doubt a wait I could deal with. From the immense Track Creator, to the four player online multiplayer. Even the music is a positive (the opening theme is starting to grow on me). Trials Evolution is some of the most fun I have had from a game in some time now. Expand

    Another attempt to cash in on a cheap tacky game, everytime I tried to boot this game up I was greeted with a long period of unreponsiveness, when I do get to play the game I find myself playing something from miniclip.com.

    Gameplay is same old flash style gameplay, graphics are the only thing worth mentioning about the whole game. It gets really boring very quickly and no matter how the graphics change and the scenary varies it doesn't make the gameplay any less repetitive or yawn-worthy.

    I give a 2/10 purely because it looks good but I wish I could get a refund as I would accept it in an instant.
