This one looks pretty darn good. It's been a while since we had a good iOS Trials game..I think.

There's never been a good iOS Trials game and there's a bloody good reason for it as well! Analogue controls are absolutely ESSENTIAL for the genre, and iOS doesn't offer them in any competent way, if at all. Advanced play is literally impossible without analogue controls and so the iOS games have to rely on cartoon physics, as in Bike Baron.

This game looks pathetic. It couldn't be ripping off Trials HD's entire aesthetic any more if it actually just called itself Trials HD.

Bit harsh ! Wouldnt say it looks pathetic. Even if you think that as a long time gamer i know that graphics arent everything, its all about the gameplay.

The game does look good but i'm still happy (and enjoying) with XTreme Wheels which came out a fair while ago, similar type of game.

May get this new one though as the video looks pretty good

It is fairly obvious that the look of this game is lifted directly from Trials HD. Which is odd as Redlynx themselves have moved away from that style in Trials Evolution. And yes, no iOS game without physical controls will ever be as good as those titles....

But Redlynx are unwilling or too slow to do an iOS port so what ya gona do :/

Games that will never leave my iPad : Great Big Wargame, Battle Academy, Battle of the Bulge, Ravenmark and Hunters 2.

So it's finally here... Wonder if it'll dethrone Xtreme Wheels from the king of the most realistic trials hd clone on iOS

judging from the trailer the physics don't seem to be realistic at all

Title annoys me but the game itself looks good. Will wait on impressions though in case it's a great release week. In which case, I'll have to be selective.

Just wanna point out that a lite version has apparently been out for the last 6 months and was updated a couple of weeks ago. Everyone who's on the fence about this should probably do themselves a favor and check it out. That's what I'm doing as we speak.

Thanks for saying this, so for once I don't have to. Also the title is inane to the point of blatant stupidity.
