Hydro Thunder or Trials HD?

I have a suspicion people that just say Trials have only played Trials. Not saying it is not a good game, but certainly not for everybody. Demo each game for yourself.

No, I played a ridiculous amount of Trials, and I dl'ed the demo for Hydro Thunder and was totally bored long before it ended. As for someone mentioning multi-player, really how many players are in Hydro these days? Trials doesn't have MP but it does have friends leaderboards.

There are still people playing Hydro Thunder online and don't forget local multiplayer. It is one of the best casual multiplayer experiences I have had on xbox 360. Trials is nice and something different, but after spending 10 minutes on an expert track just trying to get up a 1 hill I asked myself why I was even playing it and never went back. This is where I will be attacked for my lack of skillz, but the game is supposed to be difficult so I don't care. hah

I've played both and am a fan of Hydro Thunder (original arcade, Dreamcast, and the new game), but Trials HD is one of the best arcade titles I've played.

I absolutely loved trials, but like the other guy said, it isn't for everybody. it is very much a trial and error game. I found out the hard way the maximum amount of times you can fail a course is 500 beofr eit automatically restarts you. That said. I did beat every course which seemed impossible at first, but by the end I thought to myself how did I ever doubt I could beat this game.

also the sequel is coming out, I thought soon, but they have been saying that for a while now, so who knows it might come out with the summer of arcade promotion. it could be a while and given the success of the original, I imagine they would wait for one of those big promotions where they have big games releasing like 4 weeks in a row.


play the trial, if you do like the trial, then absolutely get it.
