Urban Trial Tricky
In short, even though Urban Trial Tricky was clearly meant to be enjoyed on a portable, I won’t deny I had quite a bit of fun playing it on an Xbox. Even if I don’t have access to the novelty of portability, I was more than satisfied with its improved performance and faster loading times. The game as a whole is a bit rough around the edges, but its presentation is strong and its gameplay, despite a bit janky at times, is simple to learn and fun to mess around with.
I enjoyed what Tate Multimedia did with Steel Rats in a motorcycle platformer, but the Urban Trials series has really landed for me in Urban Trial Tricky Deluxe Edition. From pursuing every challenge, to the high score hunting, and besting every time, there’s something for everyone and a means to achieve it. Whether you’ve got fifteen minutes or a couple of hours, the game fits in either direction to satisfy and make progress. Urban Trial Tricky Deluxe Edition is great for any age, and a casual experience to get started with expert nuance in the later levels that really defines the experience.
Polish studio Tate Multimedia has recently achieved a lot of success – company reactivated Kao the Kangaroo and created a great Steel Rats. They also sold a lot of copies of its Urban Trial series. Their last game called Urban Trial Tricky is a good game, but its lack of more variety. It would be a great idea to add multiplayer or co-op mode.

Whilst not the deepest or most realistic of Trials-like games, it makes up for it with silliness and charm.
