The arrival of the Trials Evolution Gold Edition driving arcade on PC makes us go back to the past. It has already rained since RedLynx published there for 2008 Trials 2 Second Edition for compatible, a title that drank from the same source as the acclaimed Excitebike, created by the winner of the 2012 Prince of Asturias Award Shigeru Miyamoto and some others.

Five long years for PC users , because for those who have Xbox 360 have been able to enjoy two more installments, Trials HD and Trials Evolution , two games in downloadable format that arrived at Xbox Live Arcade in 2009 and 2012 respectively. Both, by themselves, offered a huge amount of hours of guaranteed fun.

More than 4 million units sold among the entire saga make it clear that we are facing one of the greats, a game that with its simplicity has managed to unseat many others called Triple A that sometimes even triple the budget of one of these Trials episodes.

And we do not get tired of saying it, sometimes simple games are the ones that provide more hours of fun. The trick is to offer a bombproof gameplay and to have some simple, but not boring, challenges to overcome more and more complex. This is, quite simply, what Trials Evolution Gold Edition offers us.

But make no mistake, this title that concerns us today is nothing more than a compilation of the two games that came out on Xbox 360 but removed to give a face in the PC format, something that users were waiting for. With more than 100 paths to overcome, different driving tests and lots of totally crazy minigames Trials Evolution Gold Edition is able to hook the most painted.

The mechanics is already seen in previous deliveries. With the right trigger it accelerates, with the left one it is braked and with the analog (or digital) direction the motorcycle stabilizes. The game is compatible with any controller but, above all, we recommend using the official Xbox 360 controller for PC . Our task is none other than to finish each test in the best possible time to get the desired gold coin. To do this we will have to jump over gigantic sand dunes, impossible architectures or even use wooden planks to try to fly on the stage, but always keeping our motorcycle well stable.

For those who do not know the saga, we can say that Trials is something similar to the famous Trackmania but in two-wheel version. Fast tracks, of all the difficulties, with many crazy things and a complete circuit editor, something that we will analyze later.

Although it is a small compilation with remake dyes, the truth is that graphically the game does not take advantage of all the potential that can be taken from a computer. The graphics are quite fair and remain in line with what is seen in the Microsoft console but with some improvements. What is still spectacular is the lighting that it boasts, which once again is worthy of admiration and makes the scenarios look very realistic.
