In a strange way, Trials games have always been about frustration - the red raw anguish as you lose your balance on the last obstacle when you were heading for a perfect run that drives you on to keep trying.
Trials: Frontier doesn't have that edge to it. With its cartoony graphics and smooth-edged explosions comes a more relaxed approach to smashing a motocross rider's spine into a bunch of barrels.
In all aspects it offers more casual Trials experience, but I don't mean that in a derogatory way. This is Trials sliced into manageable, entertaining pieces.
A nice game of tricks and tribulations, traditionalist Trials fans might be put off by Frontier, but newcomers will lap it up
