Week in Arcade: Trials Evolution

It’s time to kick off another XBLA promotion, this first shot being the $15 sequel to a namesake of the service.

Trials Evolution

Evolution is right. Trials has broken free of its simple course designs for varied environments and even going so far as to ditch the motorcycle entirely. Tracks are inherently vicious, even from the outset, generating the same satisfaction from before, only now on a wider, more in-depth scale. Solo play is outstanding and multiplayer aspects broaden the Trials scope. The course designer returns, although now it’s capable of creating widely varied games, much like Little Big Planet. Creativity will blossom in this community for sure, offering more reasons to pick this one up.
