Urban Trial Freestyle
Trial Freestyle has made it to the Nintendo 3DS from the PS Vita/PS3
platform. Sure it was a game Sony fanboys could enjoy. But Tate
Multimedia knew it could be so much more, if just given the chance.
Nintendo has given Urban Trial Freestyle that chance. So rev that motor
and get ready for some crazy tracks on your 3DS.
Urban Trial Freestyle hobbles all kinds of things together. We may go through a cylinder concrete block down to a moving train. We might have to jump over a car rolling down a hill. We may have to do a complete flip, and land flat while going backwards. The level of insanity of the stunts in Urban Trial Freestyle is extremely high.
We start out Urban Trial Freestyle staring at this dude with no shirt on. Thankfully after a couple of races I had the money to buy him a jacket. Which is the first thing I bought because I did not want to look at that shirtless wonder anymore. Plus it makes no logical sense. Why would a guy doing such crazy stunts wear no protection on the upper portion of his body? Awkward!
The music in Urban Trial Freestyle is upbeat, and will keep you awake. Which is important in these adjustable environments. Not everything in Urban Trial Freestyle is stable. That threw me at first, but I adapted my style to match the environments. Also be careful of going too fast in certain areas. I won't spoil anymore than that. Play Urban Trial Freestyle and you will know what I mean.
The 3D looks neat in Urban Trial Freestyle. I wound up turning it off because I wanted to focus on controlling my bike. The minute adjustments I could make are very impressive. Many times I could recover from mistakes before my guy hit the ground. Which is important in this kind of a game.
Crashes are a part of Urban Trial Freestyle, and where most of the violent content comes from. Gamers can hurt their racer in a wide array of ways. I also felt bad when I made a mistake, and he landed on his head. Or when he stopped and the bike kept going. I used these mistakes as learning experiences. The goal was to get more stars the next time I ran the course.
Urban Trial Freestyle has the “it” factor. It is a fun little downloadable game that will interest and entertain from start to finish. Being able to race for stunts or time is a nice feature. It allows Urban Trial Freestyle to be approachable by more members of the family. At least the ones ten years and older.
