Summary

We return to Urban Trial Tricky and the truth is the game still plays so well it’s insane, it’s so smooth and they allow you to recover so easily that the flow never breaks. Not since the first Joe Danger have I played a game this smooth and fun. The tricks are annoyingly locked behind progress but I suppose it gives you something to shoot for, they have such a variety of moves from aerials to stoppies to edging and specials. The levels are designed in a way that you can go from side to side keeping that monster combo going. Customisation is a good way to show off your character but let’s face it, it’s all about dem tricks and racking up seriously high scores. For me this is the best in series, the way you unlock content to the tricks to the level designs, even if you are not gifted with the trick skills needed, you will still be able to pull off a lot of feats due to the game’s accessibility and how each level has a set of collectibles. They cater to everyone in Urban Trial Tricky. Think Tony Hawks on a bike and you are there, one of those must-have games on the Nintendo Switch is now on Steam and worth your monies all day long. Little has changed really over the previous version but it does give me an excuse to play it all over again!

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
