It is certainly a great game & literally my favorite 360 game of all time and well worth owning. Has the best physics of any game ever. BUT, 2 things to consider,. 1) Trials Evolution (its sequel) should be coming out in the near future (no set release date though) and 2) The difficulty curve ramps up fairly quickly when you get to the hard & extreme tracks. This game takes a LOT of practice in order to get better. Some people who dont have the time or patience can find it frustrating, but for those who stick with it, the game is very rewarding.
