Trials 2 Walkthrough

If you're looking for a challenging and addictive BMX game, put Trials 2 at the top of your must-play list. This incredible game offers everything you could want in a BMX game without a lot of the filler you get with many of the other games in the genre. There are no achievements to unlock. There are no fancy upgrades you can purchase with coins or experience to make your bike better. The bike you start the game with is as good as it gets, but that hardly matters when the bike you start the game with is more than enough to get you the whole way through. Even the graphics are better than the graphics you would see in many of the other BMX games online, offering enough detail to be interesting but not so much detail the game becomes glitchy or lags on slower computers. Probably the greatest thing about this game, though, is that it stays so true to the format and premise that BMX game fans love while still managing to feel new and interesting.

The basic premise behind Trials 2 is more or less the same as the premise behind most of the other BMX games online. You start out on the left side of the screen and need to make it to the end of the track without crashing. Along the way you'll encounter all manner of obstacles you need to navigate over in order to complete your journey. It's pretty tricky to do. I would recommend playing through the tutorial level first to get an idea of what you're in for. While the controls are basically the same as the controls you would use in most of the other games in the genre, there aren't many games that offer this level of challenge. If you approach this game as you would any other BMX game, you're probably going to find yourself getting fairly frustrated fairly quickly. The tutorial offers many great tips, takes you over some of the more difficult obstacles and will also give you the chance to get used to the controls before you start the actual game.

Trials 2 is going to be a hard game for newcomers to BMX games to get the hang of. Experience isn't required to play the game, but it's definitely an asset. Balance and control is everything in this game. Having a bit of experience with those things will help you out significantly. It isn't hard at all to flip your bike; especially when going over steeper obstacles. Possibly the smartest addition to this game was the addition of check points - something sadly missing from many of the more difficult games in the genre. If you crash, you will be returned to the last check point you reached successfully instead of having to start over from the beginning of the level which makes the game a lot less frustrating. Of course if you failed to reach a check point, you will have to start over, but generally speaking, the first check point appears relatively early in the level and additional check points appear rather frequently after that.

Often times, a check point will appear after a particularly treacherous section of the track in Trials 2. That might seem like a disadvantage, but that couldn't be further from the truth. By placing frequent check points throughout the track, you never really have to start that from back from where you crashed. This allows you to focus on the obstacle that is giving you the most trouble without having to worry about earlier obstacles you struggled with. The additional benefit here is that it gives you the chance to really look at the obstacle and figure out exactly what you need to do to get over it. That not only helps you get over the problem obstacle in the first place but will also help you figure out the best way to get over the obstacle should you encounter it, or something similar, in later levels.

The best way to do well in Trials 2 is to take your time. While you want to get through the track as quickly as possible to get a good score, crashing will definitely slow you down and if you rush in this one, you will crash. It's only a matter of time. Many of the obstacles, especially in later levels, require careful, cautious navigation. If you hit them with too much speed, you won't stand a chance. Don't be afraid to slow down. Balance is important and its much more difficult to balance a speeding bike than one going at a slightly slower speed. It's also not necessary to crawl through the entire track. There are some obstacles that require you to hit them with a fair bit of speed. The real challenge of this game is determining which obstacles are which and for that, there is nothing better thann experience. When you crash, look at why you crashed. Learn from your mistakes so you can avoid making them again. There is little worse than crashing in the same spot over and over again just to realize you've been making a small mistake each time. It's also vital that you familiarize yourself with those all important left and right arrow keys. If it looks like you're just about to flip either backward or forward, if you're paying attention, you can often catch yourself by leaning in the opposite direction. Finally, at some points you're going to be airborne. It's the nature of the tracks. Pay attention to what obstacles you expect to land on by looking ahead at the track. Adjust your position while you're still in the air to prepare for your landing. That way you can avoid scrambling to stick your landing.

Overall, Trials 2 is one of the most addictive, engrossing and challenging BMX games online. It manages to feel new and interesting despite the fact that it follows the same basic premise that most of the other games in the genre follow. That can be owed in part to the frequent check points and the excellent graphics, but mostly the enjoyability of the game comes from how difficult it actually is. The only real complaint that I can see with this game is how short it is. More experienced players will likely be able to get through the entire game relatively quickly and be left wishing there was more. The biggest advantage here is that the game is entertaining enough that you can simply play again and try for a higher score. For a real challenge; try to make it through the entire game without crashing once. It's not nearly as easy as it sounds, but it can be done. It'll just take a little time and a lot of patience. If you love BMX games, you'll love Trials 2.
