GAMERS willing to show their age and admit to always sitting down to watch Kick Start on TV will probably get the gist of what’s on offer here, as you brave 35 incredibly-designed levels on your motorcycle, putting your neck on the line to post the kind of time that will make your online buddies weep.
And that’s the key to Trials HD’s success.
Not only are the graphics great, the controls superb and the crashes spectacularly painful, but the online leaderboard challenges are what will stop you from putting the controller down.
Rarely has the ‘just one more go’ emotion emerged so strongly in a game, with a real-time gauge showing how close you are to pipping your pals at the post.
It’s exhilarating stuff, and well worth getting your Xbox friends addicted to.
