The best release in the franchise so far with very fun and challenging gameplay, it gets a little away from a perfect score due to the limited online mode and some small issues

Trials Rising is an awesome entry in the series that takes content from the past and expands upon it in many ways.

Trials Rising surprises with creative Multiplayer approaches and also local elements for your next couch co-op sessions but doesn't manage to deliver a consistent singleplayer experience because of carelessly integrated Lootbox/XP Systems and overusing some tracks. The game still is the best Entry so far for newcomers and delivers a lot of challenges in the endgame for veterans.

Trials Rising captures the franchise’s signature motorcycle platforming action along with the intense challenges that come with it. The developers have remained dedicated to the game’s iconic formula and complex gameplay but at the same time provided a training option for newcomers without sacrificing the game’s core systems. Players diving into the series will need to devote time to learn the tricky systems while veterans will be able to pick and play just as always. Trials Rising delivers an outstandingly challenging experience requires nothing but your best if you want to succeed.

Trials Rising has smooth and good gameplay mechanics. Also level designs are pretty good. But graphics are seems from old generation.

Ubisoft manages to stay right on track with Trials Rising thanks to a wide selection of events and a varied customization system, along with in-game seasonal competitions and custom tracks that will have players coming back for more.

Overall, Trials Rising has a lot to offer, I found myself spending loads of hours just grinding through tracks and listening to awesome music while I was at it. From challenging courses and challenger events to filming movies while performing 12 backflips at once, Trials Rising offers the player just enough crazy to draw them in and keeps them occupied by making them feel like a racing god. This is by far one of my favorite Trials games to date. Definitely pick this one up if you want to spend a couple of hours at a time being a stuntman. After all, it is only US $34.99.

Trials Rising is a return to form for this classic physics-based bike game. Tandem brings a whole new element to multiplayer fun and contracts extends the challenges in the campaign to make this one game fans should not miss out on.

If you can withstand Trials Rising‘s needless XP grind, it finds the series in classic “video-game-as-cocaine” form.

Trials' gameplay is as flawless as ever, but some bad design decisions cripple a great game.

After Trials Fusion, it was unclear where the series would be going from there. Trials Rising feels refreshing and more down to Earth this time around. It never fails to impress, make you laugh, or affirm you’re in complete control. This is a game that’s always fun to pick up and play, even if the things like gear crates and load times on the periphery aren’t. It’s clear RedLynx haven’t run out of tricks yet, and Trials Rising cements that – this is the best Trials has felt yet.

For my money, Trials Rising is simply worth every penny. It's a rare game that I'm finished reviewing and still want to play.

Trials: Rising is a tricky one to score. At its very core what makes the Trials games so addictive, so satisfying and so god-damn rewarding is still present. Once again I found myself clutching the controller at 3am with a slightly manic expression plastered across my sweat-covered face, mumbling something about needing to bounce the back wheel off that edge to shave off some time. Once again, I found myself thinking, “Just one more go. Alright, maybe two.” again and again and again. It’s just irritating that Trials, arguably the quintessential example of a sleek game, has got bloated in this latest iteration.

I had a lot of fun with Trials Rising. There were so many times I would sit down to play for a 20-minute session, and then two hours would go by.

Trials Rising has some missteps when it comes to its progression and unlocking of content, but still has an addictive, enjoyable gameplay loop that will keep you coming back time and time again.

More than anything, Trials Rising does something that, ultimately, needs to be at the core of every game; it’s fun. It's zany, yet challenging, leaving it as a phenomenal follow-on for the Trails franchise.

Apart from obnoxious loot boxes, Trials Rising is the premier Trials experience available. Pitch perfect challenge mixed with addictive physics-based gameplay, what more do you need?

Extreme sports video games have been very competitive, but have been losing attention from the videogame community.

Trials Rising, as far as everyone is concerned, fulfills your wildest dream of doing idiotic flips, crazy hoops, and mindless stunts that are deemed nearly impossible in real-life for kicks even if the game rewards you with blatantly horrible and bland cosmetics.
