Is It Any Good?

Trials HD is an agreeably simple and accessible game that just about anyone can pick up in a matter of minutes. However, there's also a satisfying level of challenge found in its later races, which will prove daunting even for veteran gamers. If you get stuck you can always jump over to the quick and fun mini-games (like racing as far as you can with limited gas) or hop online for some lightning quick Excitebike-style fun.

But the heart of Trials Evolution is its authentic physics and over-the-top antics. The bikes players drive have a great feel, and act just as you'd expect they would in the real world while climbing steep slopes and jumping giant chasms. Some imaginative obstacles -- think water jets and land mines -- create laugh-out-loud moments, sending the game's hapless motorcyclists tumbling through the air. There aren't many more instantly accessible and bountifully entertaining games on Xbox Live Arcade.
