Has anyone else been playing this game? It might be one of the games on my GOTY list. The visuals are stunning, the trails are varied and difficult, and there seems like a ton to unlock. I just throw on a Spotify playlist go.

I saw this pop up on Twitter and it looked pretty fun. Only learned now that it's available on Game Pass too, so probably going to give it a poke at some point.

Maybe this is a Trials substitute for @brad to pick up on UPF...

Loving this game on PC GamePass so far. I think it strays far enough from what Trials does to be its own thing to be honest. Flying down a mountain and hitting hard turns on the switchbacks feels so good.

Plus, whenever you find a shortcut that isn't clearly marked it feels like you are cheating. I found a cut on the first route that meant a segment took 9 seconds and I'm 8th in the world. Feels great.

Picked up this game today. It feels great when you nail the right path and the open nature of the tracks encourages you to experiment with new pathways and shortcuts.

Tried it on gamepass

I definitely see parts of this that I love and could go down a dark road with this.

But still can't find a control scheme that works for me. And the camera angle makes it a lot harder to react to what is coming up and requires a lot more memorization.

I think the Trials comparison is probable accurate, but I would say this is more to Trials as Mario 64 was to SMB. VERY different games with a VERY different emphasis, but they both hang out together at x-mas.

I want more of that white knuckle type racing and not vehicles just ploughing through the scenery.

@sahalarious: Kinetica. Man, I've been trying to remember the name of that game forever. Thanks for the blast from the past. And I had no idea it was re-released in 2016.

Bought this last night and this game rules!

I love to go mountain biking in real life, so this scratches a certain itch when the weather is crappy. The physics are a lot of fun, being able to bite into corners and slide out feels great.

I also really like how you can kind of make your own route, so long as your not sending it down some massive drop.

Friends and I started playing this game past week and we absolutely love it! The best part is that the time goals are forgiving in that your time isn't persistent through crashes. When you checkpoints it resets so you can just GO for it and put together the perfect limitless crash run.

Besides the checkpoints, there's no stopping you from going whichever way you want. The freedom makes it a blast just trying to find little shortcuts.

Feel like the equipment progression could be a bit quicker so you can start doing more crazy stuff.

This is my gem of the year, for sure.
