When RedLynx released Trials HD for Xbox Live Arcade a few years ago as part of Microsoft’s Summer of Arcade program, I don’t think they had any idea what kind of addictive flood gates they were opening. Or hey, maybe they did. Maybe they knew they were diabolical geniuses and would be drawing in millions of gamers to the strenuous but hardly impossible challenges that lied within this side-scrolling strategic racer. Overcoming obstacles, posting the best leaderboard times, and just simply SURVIVING to get to the next stage with at least a bronze medal…there was always something that kept you coming back for more. I can honestly say that while it delivered its moments of aggravation, it was still one of the better Xbox Live Arcade games out there.
