Trials is a great game which requires you to balance your dirtbike rider across challenging obstacles and reach the finish line. The game itself is uses 3D models, but the camera and your movement is locked into a 2D perspective. And the controls are really easy since all you can do is accelerate, brake/reverse, lean forward, and lean backward. You have to combine these at the perfect time and learn how to jump across gaps, hop up to ledges, and avoid all kinds of hazards. The controls for this specific version are extremely precise and you'll even be fine playing on a keyboard. Some of the advanced techniques will take time to learn, but once you get the hang of it then it becomes extremely compelling. And though the game can be brutally hard, it does have checkpoints so that if you crash you can immediately respawn at the last checkpoint. Once you've become better then you can attempt to complete levels without crashing and in the fastest time. And you will get better the more time you spend in it. I would definitely recommend this game for people who enjoy challenging games that are simple to learn but hard to master.
