I rented this solely for Limbo, as I already have downloaded Trials, but I'll review all 3 as best I can
Starts off almost like a simple kickstart/excitebike game where you simply control your speed to hit the jumps, but before you know it you are grinding each level, and trying not to die 500 times per level. Fun, but frankly, too hard (for me). 7/10 (9/10 for the early levels where it is fun!).
Another oldskool formula, effectively a sequence of puzzle rooms to decipher. I finished it in one sitting of about 5 hours, not sure there is much reason to play through again (other than achievement to complete it in one sitting and die no more than five times), but is a joy for that sitting. 8/10
Rather aggravating platformer. Must admit I just didn't 'get' it. 5/10.
I had wanted to rent this game to play Limbo; I had tried the demo for this game back when and liked it but didn’t want to buy the game for the 1200 MP. I also had tried Trails HD demo and thought hey two games in one that I want lets try it. I have to say Limbo was great; puzzles were hard but not too hard that you couldn’t figure them out eventually with some trial and error. Limbo is a definite one to try this for, as for Trials I have to say it was fun at first but just got hard to the point that I was just frustrated as heck cause you cant get a gold metal in the later ones unless you do it without crashing or exploding which happens al lot in the later dynamite ridden levels. All in all it was still fun. Splodsion Man seemed fun but kept getting stuck even in two players it needed too much team work for my taste and timing skills. In the End I would say get it for Limbo and dabble if you want on the other two.

First off, Trials HD is a really fun sidescroller game where you have to get to the finish line the fastest and with few faults.. It's a lot harder then it looks.... sometimes the physics of it is hard to control... which is infuriating when you are checkpointed in front of a really big hill. Trials HD, 9/10. Secondly, Limbo is amazing. It's trial-and-death gameplay is really cool, and its so beautiful. 10/10. 'Splosion Man is cute, yet sometimes irritating with a partner. 8/10... overall 9/10
