In general, Trials Rising is considered to be the best part of the series. The refined gameplay mechanisms, a powerful track editor and interesting new ideas such as a tandem motorcycle, driven by two people at the same time, are all praised. The game is also very extensive, offering a wealth of challenges for solo players and an excellent multiplayer.
Trials Rising does have a few problems, though. The biggest seems to be the progression system, which forces us to put in a lot of grind in order to gain access to many elements and tracks. Moreover, the game does not introduce any revolutionary changes and will not convince anyone who did not like earlier versions.
