No. 53: Trials Evolution – 100 Greatest Games Ever
The epitome of “just one more game,” Trials HD took the Xbox 360 by storm when it was released in 2009. A motorcycle game in the style of Excitebike, it boasted great graphics, insane obstacles and a level of difficulty that made you curse the game while smashing the button to try it again.
Red Lynx’s recent followup Trials Evolution came with a multiplayer mode, an in-game editor that’s the exact same one the developer used to create the game’s levels, and the ability to play other user-created tracks, finally! As if trying to get gold medals in all the 50 single player tracks weren’t enough, you can also see ghosts of your friend’s best scores as you play, goading you into beating them at every turn.
Final say — better in every way and infinitely replayable.
