    The usual, wonderful Trials game, with tons of stuff to do, a great learning curve, a powerful editor and some great new elements.

    is a very good addition to the Trials-franchise. Progression requires skills developed by training. It's not (yet) better than Trials Evolution, though. [May 2014]

    Trials Fusion lives up to its name by offering better visuals and amazing environments.

    Regardless of negatives, Trials Fusion is still a fun, yet hard-core twitch-based experience that will give you hours of pleasure (depending on your definition of the word), but the best part of it is still the competition it creates with your friends list, and with that in mind, I’ll see you on the leaderboards, folks.

    Trials Fusion is a worthy successor to Trials HD and Trials Evolution. It sticks to the same formula of those games and adds amazing new minigames and fantastic new skills to it. It doesn't quite live up to the full next-gen potential, but it is still a very fun game, where you can put lots of hours trying and failing.

    Fun, challenging, frustrating and insane - in a good and bad way.

    Hardcore Trials fans have probably already bought and completed this game, but for others who may be curious and haven't jumped in yet, I'd recommend either of the others before this one.

    The good thing about games like this is that they never get old, I'll never want to sell this game, it'll always be fun. And it offers practically limitless content. You get about 70 tracks in the game on release date, which vary in difficulty. And you have tons of tracks to download from people who have created them. Not to mention the 6 DLC packs which will come out at a future date.

    The game is really quite challenging. When I got to the "Skill Showcase" I actually quit the game for a little bit because I didn't think I could do well. But practice makes perfect and now I've completed the whole game and got silver medals on all the tracks.

    The graphics for this game are also really impressive for a 2D dirt bike physics game.

    I don't see how you can give a game this fun and timeless anything but a 10/10. This is a game you can pick up and play and have fun with 3-4 years down the road.

    Trails Fusion, the sequel to the wildly popular Trials series aims to blow its predecessors out of the water. The game is slated to releaseTrails Fusion, the sequel to the wildly popular Trials series aims to blow its predecessors out of the water. The game is slated to release April 16th for the Xbox 360, Xbox One, PS4, and an April 24th release for PC. RedLynx and Ubisoft pulled out all the stops on this game with tighter controls and enhanced graphics. So strap on your helmets and lets throw up some dirt as we get into the nitty gritty of Trials Fusion.

    Trials Fusion delivers a healthy dose of white knuckled adrenaline rush action, and man does it feel good. I found myself squirming in my seat on several occasions due to amount of intensity this game packs into each and every level. Trials Fusion offers a career mode that has several different landscapes or “Events” with their own climate and scenery. Your objective is to reach the finish line of each level and collect your medal. Medals are awarded depending on your clearance time and how many times you crashed or “faulted”. Progressing through the levels earns you new apparel, bikes, and body kits. Included with each level are 3 challenges, just little quirks you can do to gain some experience points. Some of these challenges can be finished with relative ease while others might make you stop and think of a game plan.

    Each Event also has a training level just to familiarize players with obstacles they will be facing in later tracks. My personal favorite was the training level that teaches you how to properly perform stunts. I enjoyed the idea of spreading out the training levels across the Events so that way I didn’t have to sit through one long tutorial. Along with the training levels players will also come across Skill Game levels that can also be complete for metals. These Skill Games can range from achieving the highest altitude off of a ramp to scoring a huge stunt score. In my opinion these are some of the best levels in the game and I wish there would’ve been more to mess around with.

    Players can customize almost anything they want in this game. Anything from costumes, body kits, and wheels can be interchanged and used to make all new combinations. Not only that, but if you can customize it, chances are you can colorize it to your liking as well. Players are offered a whole color wheel of different choices allowing you to truly stand out in the crowd. The different costumes are awesome and can be earned from leveling up or earning various achievements throughout the game. This goes the same for wheels and body kits which can be earned in several different ways. Feel free to customize everything to your liking and become your own creative identity.

    Now before we go any further i wanted to make a point to talk about the game controls. When it comes to being tight and well tuned Trials Fusion scores big. I felt I had complete controls of my character throughout the game. I was able to position my rider for a safe landing from ramps and falls with relative ease. Of course being able to do so is just determined on the amount of time you dedicate to the game. These controls are so simple and yet so well refined that I feel like RedLynx wanted you to know that if you crashed it was your fault, not the game’s. The implementation of the Trick system was really cool and added so much intensity to the game and a made players pose a challenge to themselves.

    The addition of challenges and skill games really made this game enjoyable for me and added a lot to the replay value. The early Events are pretty easy and rarely require you to let off the gas. As you progress through the Events making it to the finish does become a bit more of a challenge, especially in the last 3 events. In fact, my only complaint was that I felt that the learning curve was too extreme, it starts off easy and next thing you know you’re having to bunny hop across a ravine and ride up a almost perfectly erect wall. This quarrel however can be written off as just me lacking the skill to maneuver the bikes properly. That being said this game does require some time and patience. I’ll admit that I had over 50 faults in just one level. While it was frustrating to say the least, completing that level gave me an overly joyed sense of accomplishment. For our readers who are completionists and aim to 100% everything, you guys are in for a treat.

    The landscapes are absolutely beautiful to say the least. Trials Fusion runs at a silky smooth 1080p and 60fps for the PS4 and 900p and 60fps for Xbox One. The environments were so surreal and sometimes the environment interacted with the rider in ways that were incredibly clever. This relationship also worked in reverse, having the players impact the environment just by completing the level or certain challenges. I experienced no frame rate drops or rendering issues while playing through the entirety of the game.

As with previous titles the main career mode of Trials Fusion tasks you with completing a series of motorbike “obstacle courses”, they start off fairly simple and with the online leader boards there is an incentive to replay tracks to try to finish just that little bit quicker. The difficulty ratchets up pretty quickly however (although not as steeply as earlier games in the series) to the point where proceedings will become more frustrating than fun for all but the most dedicated of players.

    The online multiplayer offers the opportunity to compete more directly with other racers, including private matches against friends and offers a nice alternative to the single player. A few of my friends have had issues getting online due to Ubisoft’s insistence on having to sign into their Uplay platform however which has been frustrating when we just wanted a quick game.

    The game is fun and entertaining, but is a bit of a disappointment after Evolution and an overall step back. ***UPDATED*** Everything IThe game is fun and entertaining, but is a bit of a disappointment after Evolution and an overall step back. ***UPDATED*** Everything I originally stated is pretty much the same. If you haven't gotten to play trials I'd still say get it, but with every update lately the game has taken on a look of a mobile game with endless pop-ups and ads on main screens for DLC, have made the game take on the appearance of a desperate mobile game. I've lowered my score from 7 to 6. This is obnoxious, and I'm sure is an outcome of Redlynx being purchased by Ubisoft. (This BS compelled me to update this review) The gameplay and controls are excellent and on par with the previous titles, and FMX was a great addition. Red Lynx dropped the ball when it comes to customization. The body kits are OK, but I want to be able to change the color on every part of my bike! I hate all the white/silver strips and accents I cant change! I don't understand why devs would exclude simple features such as this from a new title like this! The leveling up was just a meh addition, and goes hand in hand with the track challenges. I'm a pretty good Trials player, I have zero faulted all the Inferno tracks, but some of these challenges were ridiculous! There shouldn't be challenges requiring you to zero fault and extreme track,. I could see this being a huge turn off to some, and is frustrating for someone wanting to get all the trophies/achievements. The future theme wore thin on me rather quickly. The AI voices grated on my nerves quickly, and trying to incorporate that story was just silly. The track editor was a disappointment to me coming from Fusion's editor. I was sad to see that there were no classic wood ramps or scaffolding etc. The game is fun, and worth buying, but I'm glad I did not buy the season pass though. If your coming from Fusion you may be disappointed as I was, but if this is your first chance to own a Trials game, get it! Expand
