Trials Evolution

No other game is as thrilling and extremely frustrating at the same time. It’s more of the same formula found in Trials HD, but more of the same is a very good thing. The inclusion of freely downloadable user-made tracks earns Trials Evolution full marks.

Trials Evolution

The sequel to the critically acclaimed Trials HD, releasing later this year.

Death comes swiftly and brutally when traversing the monochrome forest in Limbo.

In addition to the aesthetics, the physics platforming and puzzle sections are instantly enjoyable – which is why Limbo is not only a worthwhile experience, but a worthwhile game.

I’m slightly ashamed to admit that I found the ending incomprehensible.
