In the past, the Trials games and I had a bit of a love/hate relationship. I loved how simple and addictive the gameplay was - it had the uncanny ability to make me want "just one more go" when I'd repeatedly miss a jump. It was also fun to just completely ignore the course and see how many flips you could do off of various ramps, only to see your rider crash into the ground with delightful ragdoll physics. That said, I hated how difficult they got and how bad I was at more difficult levels. Fast-forward to 2009 and the Trials series is back, this time on the Xbox Live Arcade with Trials HD. I was really intrigued to see how far the game had come along since its flash game beginnings, so I loaded up the game and jumped right in.
