Trials Fusion has all the intricate attributes that it takes to have a high flying intense bike competition. This futuristic sci-fi rider traverses a strange universe of planets that are chock full of insane ramp structures, mixed with organic scenes and trails. Fusion gives you all the tools, equipment, and training you need to immerse yourself into the world of trial bike riding whether you are familiar with this type of sport riding, or have never even seen it before, thanks much in part to the non-invasive training qualifiers.
At the beginning of every new level a training lap is required to unlock the different types of levels and race tracks / competitions. This lap will need to be completed before you can progress forward. These short instructional tracks help the player while in motion and lessen the learning curb considerably. The beginning tracks are great for just letting it rip and getting a good feel for the insane things you can pull off. Later on in the higher levels, a serious degree of challenge and difficulty are presented.
In Trials Fusion, it’s all about the run time as players race to overcome obstacles and find the right combination of throttle versus angle in order to best their previous times in the hunt for Gold and Platinum medals. While all of the competitions are timed, some of them require points for the medals which are generated by successfully completing stunts in an all-out freestyle battle. As players progress, the levels intensify training a player to master the balance and exact power it takes to hop from a dead stop across perfectly measured zones where the slightest mistake will not allow you to move forward.
With the track creator the only thing stopping you from making an insane jump and climb-infused track is your own imagination. Place ramps, obstacles, and create impossible climbing situations of your own and load them up online for everyone to take a crack at them. With this mode and a Season’s Pass full of content on the way, Trials Fusion will continue to be played on your friends list for some time.

Currently at the time of this Review, players can only play local multi-player on the same screen, which is a very cool racing experience introducing real life side by side dynamics, but soon fully Online Multiplayer will be launched for the title providing a much more exciting gameplay option. At that point, this title becomes a must-have for sessions with friends.
After spending enough time to acquire the gold medals needed to unlock the final tracks I am looking forward to incoming DLC as well as player-created runs. That will give this title the longevity it deserves for a different type of session whether you are in it for serious competition or just out to have some high flying fun. Trials Fusion gets a 9 out of 10 from RealGamerNewz, making it a an RGN Gold rated game. Be on the lookout for future reviews of the upcoming add-on content for Trials Fusion Season Pass holders soon.
