Gas Guzzlers Extreme
There was fun to be had, and I had it, but its not a return trip I will be making any time soon. It's not the fault of any one thing, but the combination of opposing style decisions as a whole that left this feeling more mess then machine. If you absolutely must have a new combat car racing game, go for it. Otherwise, maybe hold off until the mood strikes you... or it's on sale.
Trials Evolution Gold
There's no denying that some issues do drag down the game, but they definitely don't squelch the murderous joy that is hurling your motorized bike over more and more outrageous blockades. Of course, the multiplayer courses and track editor are here, too. RedLynx has crafted a devilishly addictive racing-platformer hybrid that pushes their game design know-how to new limits. If you don't have an Xbox and have been waiting for the chance to play one of the toughest releases of last year, Trials Evolution Gold is a fine way to explore that content and then some. The original release is the more stable, reliable choice, but PC players have a mostly fine edition that should satisfy, with a little tweaking.
