Trials 2: Second Edition
The Last Time I played Trials 2 brought about a raft of delightful joshing about having to be surgically removed from the keyboard, or being found in a crab-like position over my desk in the morning, howling in pain.
In truth it turned me into an utter bastard, a shrieking, swearing bucket of seething profanity.
If you dared chuckle and suggest that I was "addicted", or that I needed to go to "Trials 2 Anonymous" or something similarly awful, I would hate you intensely for many hours. I wouldn't attack you, that's unrealistic, but I would think how you were a shit human.
The game's now flirting with the Xbox 360 lot', with a reworked, minigame laden re-release, so what better time (actually, what worse time) to go back and play the original. Riding a bike in Trials 2 is like riding a motorbike - you never forget how. While I struggled with the fiddly long jumps at first, the compulsive nature of the game, with its evil rapid-restart system, soon re-established its hold.
My scores still exist somewhere on Trials 2's global leaderboard, though with the game now on Steam, and tied to your Steam profile, I'm being forced to reclaim my best times. If you want to try me on, I'm escaped_monkey on Steam. But please, try not to interrupt me.
