    A very good Trials-game, when it sticks to driving. The completely unnecessary platforming sections are simply dull. [Aug 2016]

    Trials of the Blood Dragon is a cluster of experiments that did not work as we would have expected. This game is full of personality and style that will please fans of the original spin-off presuming a great presentation and excellent soundtrack, but it has not the strength and polished gameplay of the Ubisoft RedLynx franchise with terrible on-foot platforming sequences.

    Trials of the Blood Dragon tries to refresh the franchise's formula with brand new platform sections and shooting mechanics, but the result is quite far from perfection. The game is still enjoyable for its classic stages, the 80s humor and the very unique retro atmosphere.

    Trials of the Blood Dragon serves both properties well in its design and story, but the gameplay is overall inconsistent as the title tries to expand beyond basic Trials.

    There is a solid core game here in Trials of the Blood Dragon, the problem is when the team extends away from that core to do other things. Not all of the motorbike tracks are great, but that is true of the Trials games as well. The platforming segments are terrible, however, some of the more bombastic and colourful stages are an absolute joy to play, and the neon visuals and pounding soundtrack do an excellent job of selling the action.

    This feels like a very capable studio being told to annualise a series that really didn't need to be yearly, because it bypasses everything that makes Trials great.

    We'd much rather play the awful unicorn levels in [Trials] Fusion's Awesome Level Max DLC, which probably ranks among the most damning things we've ever said about a game. [Issue#296, p.123]

A lilAlready an established fan of the Trials series of games? Then there's a high odds chance you'll enjoy this corny Trials side project. A lil on the easy side, but fun. Again, if u enjoy Trials, it's kinda hard 2 hate on this title..... and I hated Far Cry 3: Blood Dragon. Don't worry, it's nothing like that worthless game. Expand

It's an insult to the trials community and is clearly targeting an entirely different audience. With only one bike available, and a slew of poorly constructed, and quite frankly, very boring pseudo-platforming levels, this game manages to deliver none of the core trials experience: challenging physics-based platforming... on a motorbike.
