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.
Trials meets Dirt
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.
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.
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.
Got this recently and it is pretty sweet. I'm also feeling the Trackmania and NFS:Underground vibes with the track shortcuts and upgrades. Plus the crashes are pretty "realistic" compared to Trials so it captures the anxiousness and thrill of mountain biking quite well.
I probably shouldn't be braking so much but it seems very binary by being full on/off even with an analog controller. It looks and sounds pretty amazing as well if you dig the art style.
