Trials Fusion, first "next-gen" title in the now famous Trials series, has been released today. Ubisoft sent us the PS4 version of the game a few days ago, and as a big fan of the series since Trials HD I just had to record a few videos and give you my impressions!
What's new and interesting in this new game compared to the previous ones? The playable ATVs are a nice addition to the series, but their gameplay does not allow as much finesse as the bikes and in the end they seem more like an afterthought in the whole game. The FMX (stunt) mode adds quite a lot of replayability to the levels for the most hardcore fans, but is also not that big a revolution in terms of gameplay, which remains exactly the same as before in the end. That being said, it's not a bad thing at all!
Technically and graphically this first "next-gen" release isn't revolutionary either. The game looks great with much more details than before, and runs in 1080p in the PS4 version tested, but also doesn't manage a perfectly smooth 60 fps all the time. A patch was available when we got the game a few days ago, but we don't know if it was the "day 1" patch that was supposed to fix the framerate issues or not (no patches as of this morning, at least). Even if it remains as it is, the game is still as playable as the ones before in the series, but it would be a bit of a disappointment.
As many expected, Trials fusion is without a doubt an evolution more than a revolution. But then again many people, me included, consider the gameplay of this series as close to perfect as it can be. A much recommended title then, unless of course you are not interested in this type of game or are starting to get tired of the Trials series.
First test done with the Switch using Zelda. They could play for 2h 28 minutes on full battery. (4 Hours ago)
constantly too. Man if only that pro controller had a 3.5mm output. Do they finally have that for Switch pro conrrller? (5 Hours ago)
It should be a nomal 3.5mm output on my TV yeah. But what b0vril says could be true, sound may not be as clean. So i'll probably go with the hassle. Will be needing to keep the gamepad in the charger (5 Hours ago)
I've been looking for a great movie that's engaging from start to finish.Don't know which one you folks listed to start with though. (5 Hours ago)
@Moonwalker: Isn't it just a regualr 3,5mm output? Those extension cables are very affordable. If you have usb or optical output then it's another matter. (5 Hours ago)
Just completed Gears 4 Feral horde mode this weekend 50 waves, earning myself a diamond achievement - It was such a blast! (5 Hours ago)
