If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, then Urban Trial Freestyle (3DS) has a love affair with Trial HD (Xbox Live Arcade). Though both are remarkably similar and it is easy to lump them together under the same genre, several subtle differences separate the two games. The 3DS version of Urban Trial Freestyle has some advantages over its PSN brethren, but the fact of the matter remains that Tate Multimedia’s game is living in the shadows of RedLynx’s Trials HD and its sequel.
I really enjoyed Trials HD on the Xbox 360. And there’s really no way around comparing this game with that one. Unfortunately for Urban Trial Freestyle, it’s not nearly as good.
