Is PSN's Urban Trials more than a Trials rip-off?

If imitation really is the sincerest form of flattery then it's highly likely there was a swell of blushing cheeks in RedLynx's Helsinki office when Urban Trials was properly unveiled last year. A side-scrolling race against the clock that hurls a motocross bike through a series of improbable obstacles, it's not exactly hard to pinpoint where Polish developer Tate Media got the idea for its PSN-bound game. (PS Vita, PS3, Urban Trials)

Let's face it, it is a rip-off. But at least Sony gamers now have a game like Trials.

"Let's face it, it is a rip-off. But at least Sony gamers now have a game like Trials."

well its not really that much of a stretch to look at

"Joe Danger" as one also, so in my opinion its kinda too late and moot to point this one out as well.

Not sure what point you're trying to make bro

Looks promising, but it should be a cross-buy title in my opinion

Is Xbox's Forza more than a Gran Turismo rip-off?
gillri  +   891d ago
Forza wasnt called 'Gran Forza' or 'Forismo'
SandWitch  +   890d ago
Trials is the name of this "sport" lol, everything is right with name Urban Trials

Yea but Forza is better.....once you make the ripoff better than the original you've then improved upon the original formula and you are now on top.

GT needs to catch up to Forza.

I actually like Gran Turismo, it's all about personal preference.
iamgoatman  +   890d ago
Yes, because GT was the first driving sim. /s

LOL, I love when I bring up that comparison.

I remember when there was a Gears of War clone, Quantum I think it was called, and the xbox fans were up at arms "get your own shoooter" "Be original" "If you want a third person shooter get an xbox"

Xbox gets a clone and "its better" "So what"

Sony gets a game that is a clone and "its a clone" "Down with Sony"

LOL Good times...

I remember playing the Trials game on Miniclip lol.
joefrost00  +   890d ago
Forza is not a rip off of grand turismo cause GT was not the first sim racer
You cant be a rip off a sport that is just dumb besides turn 10 studios were ex employees of the GT series

Implying Trials didn't rip off anything...
Good_Guy_Jamal  +   890d ago
If it did, it certainly didn't rip off the name as well
profgerbik  +   890d ago
Is everyone ripping off ExciteBike? Yes.

Now shut the fuck up about this..

Trials wasnt called Amazabike was it?

the whole point is that they are shamelessly using the name of trails to get attentino and sales!!
Pathosverdes3  +   890d ago
Always wanted to play something like Trials Evolution after watching a bunch of videos. At least there is something on PS3.
lodossrage  +   890d ago
This is coming to the Vita, 3DS, and Iphone as well
So why do I get the impression from many of you that this game is "Sony's" way of ripping off?

On a side note though, for those of you that weren't alive in the NES era of gaming, there was once upon a time a game called Excitebike that ALL these kind of games ripped off.
