If you're a 360 owner, the only reason you have not to get Trials HD is that you already own it. RedLynx's beautiful XBLA racer/physics puzzle hybrid blends immediately gratifying, instant fun with ocean-deep hardcore complexity to make one of the most endlessly enjoyable games of this year so far.
And the petrol-scented icing on top of the hot, purring motor cake is the cavalcade of hilariously brutal, real time crashes you can inflict upon your poor, hapless rider when things go horribly, skeleton-abusingly wrong. If ever there was proof that ragdoll physics is one of mankind's greatest achievements, that proof is Trials HD. Need any further convincing? Just click on the play button and get ready to get your grimace on.
