Trials Fusion is a great game held back at every turn by its own aesthetics and the technology that powers it. The deep game we know and love is there, but to find it requires disabling options and overlooking some glaring issues.
Trials Fusion is set in the future. We know this because the intentionally cheesy opening theme song’s lyrics are “Welcome to the Future! Man, Machine, The Future!” Via the equally cheesy announcers that accompany each track, you find out throughout the game that the riders are clones, that the world is full of mutant animals, and that the environment is going crazy.
