    Yeah level is a bit harder than the previous DLC, lots of good tracks.

    Some extremes are easier with new bike like the forge.

    Can you use the new bike on the old tracks or just the dlc tracks?

    Just DLC and I assume custom tracks that enable it

    I can't believe it took me nearly 400 faults to do the last extreme track. It didn't even seem that hard, I was just being shit.

    The skill games are pretty fun, a lot more novelty ones this time around, for better or worse

    I reckon I'll be able to get the extremes town to a reasonable number of faults. They didn't seem too hard, I just kept failing on the same few obstacles.

    Not yet! I'm not getting the download until Boxing day.

    I vote for a hard track this time.

    The RoD tracks are quite a bit harder than the OoP ones, aren't they?
    Spent over 2 hours playing just now. My head is aching. :)

    Had a quick bash last night, all good so far - the tracks all seem really long!

    Extremes are pretty challenging as well, did the first 3 but the forge was tough going. Beat andy though \o/

    I finished that last extreme with a ridiculous amount of faults. The tracks are definitely tougher this tine around!

    I can't seem to get into trials at the moment. The tracks are good but I have no patience. Might leave it for a bit until I fancy coming back to it

    I finally bought the game yesterday in the LIVE sale along with the Origin DLC. I've got the original but, even though I love it, I pretty much suck at it. To this day I've not unlocked everything (I've completed a piss poor 42.6% according to the stats). As addictive as the game is, it starts to really do my head in when I can't get a gold medal (let alone a platinum, something else I've never actually unlocked). If I can't get a gold medal on a particular track then, after a while, it fucks me off and makes me give up because I can't continue with the other tracks while there's the 'stain' of a silver medal in the list.

    Anyway I'm liking Evo, even though, after just a few hours, it's clear that I completely suck at that too. I've only got as far as Fuel for the Flames and already I'm struggling to get a gold medal on Sunset Stripped which, apparently, is an easy track. I beg to differ. I'm only 0.5 of a second from gold, but I may as well be a million years away.

    I tried some of the custom tracks too, something I never did with the original Trials. I got a bit irked at being unable to search tracks using "required bikes" as a search criteria though. I've only unlocked the first two bikes so far and it's annoying going through a huge list of tracks only to find I can't play the vast majority of them because, despite the difficulty, I haven't got the required bike yet. It doesn't even tell me straight away in the track description, I have to download the track and go to play it before I find out if the bikes I have are allowed. I managed to play one track that, according to the description, was made by a father for his four year-old son. It still took me about three or four attempts to get a gold. That speaks volumes of my ability.

    @Spong There's no shame in rattling through the tracks to unlock them, then coming back later to really nail them - don't miss out on all the Trials-y goodness! It really is practice makes perfect. It might seem random, but then you watch replays of people on here (like Ironlungs, booped, gartt, etc) zero-faulting extreme tracks and you see it's definitely skill :) Get some Trials-folk on your friendlist!

    Top top - only go for gold medals when you have unlocked the better bikes (phoenix and scorpion)

    This. Once you get to "Ooh, I think I can do better than him" you are done for :)
    Plus you can watch the replays of others doing better than you for "inspiration"

    Okay, I'll have to do my best to ignore the medals for now and just earn myself the better bikes. Talking about replays, why can't I ever watch my own? There seems to be no option to watch a replay on anything but custom tracks. I used to quite enjoy watching my replays after I'd slogged away at a particularly difficult track in the original Trials, but I can't seem to do it now :(

    Congrats

    Your replay is only viewable if you are in the top 10,000 in the world on that track (or top 5000 in Trials HD)

    I'm not one for leaderboards myself, I don't see the point. I get the idea of unlocking all you can in the game - medals and such - but beating some random stranger online means nothing to me. Besides, I have a "massive" friends list consisting of about four people and, so far as Trials or Evo goes, none of the people on the list own the games.

    So getting the medals is all I'm really out for where Evo is concerned, and seeing as I've only done 46% of the original game, I'm under no illusion that I'll give up when the tracks in Evo get stupid.
