Average User Score: 7.3Apr 17, 2014In most games, even if you don't like the game at first, if you give it a chance, something about the game generally grows on you and you end up overall more positive about the game.
Trials Fusion is not that game. This is a pretty short game, and increasingly short depending on your skill and patience with the games generally overly sensitive (i.e. poor) controls and poor level designs (especially later into the Skill/Expert levels).
The reason for this is the game developers don't know what is fun about their game, and for some reason feel that 10 second checkpoints of extremely hard (essentially luck based due to fussy physics/controls) and un-fun bunny hopping levels is what the later levels of a game like this should be. I would have hoped as you went further along, the more spread apart the checkpoints would get with longer stretches of needing to maintain good momentum to make the jumps and land correctly, but instead the checkpoints get ever narrower leaving the player to get lucky or die trying for each successive bunny hop section for whole length of tracks.
The local multiplayer mode (no online) is also pretty worthless. It is again just small checkpoint sections pieced together as players rubber band each other forward until the end of the level and then whomever had the least "faults" is the winner (regardless of who crossed the finish line).
The track editor and level sharing might be one saving grace for the game, but as of now, most of the created levels I tried were buggy, but it did have a few stand out tracks that were better than the included tracks in the game. I should also mention that the game crashed most of the times I used the share feature to post a screenshot to Twitter. The PS4 would allow me to Close Application and submit a bug report whenever that happened so only the game was crashing and not the system.
Chances are if you get this game, the more you play and progress, the more you will end up hating it, and I doubt anybody would truly consider playing this game as "fun".
If you are still interested in the game, then at least save yourself some money by getting just the $20 version instead of the $40 version. They are the same game currently, but the $40 version includes season pass which will bring some added content/features down the road.… Expand
