Based on what some of the other member reviewers have been posting, it appears that you'll either love or hate Trials Fusion, and I claim the former. Trials Fusion was originally a moderately priced arcade game, but they released a physical disc as well, but there is no Platinum trophy to earn as Sony doesn't deem it technically a full game, but for what it's worth, the game is a blast to play and I would recommend a rent.
Trials consists of about 8 progressively more difficult "worlds," with each consisting of about 7 or 8 stages within each world. The only problem is that you won't be able to unlock and play all of the worlds unless you get a gold medal in practically every event, which can be tricky to accomplish, moreover, it isn't necessarily too difficult to achieve Gold in terms of getting from point A to B under a certain time and with few faults, but each level has three special goals, not essential to the progression of the game, that are so unrealistically difficult, very few average players would be able to unlock even a handful of these "special conditions" goals. The graphics on the PS4 version are eye-poppingly beautiful and well polished, and they did include multiplayer, albeit local, which can be fun to play with friends in your living room, but the online multiplayer which will release in a few months, is absent and the largest contributing factor to only giving this game a 7/10. The courses are innovative, and the crucial skills needed to enjoy them rely heavily on your ability to master the physics of your bike. If you're looking for a brief yet immensely satisfying experience, do yourself a favor and put Trials in your Q, but if you're looking for the online mutiplayer aspect, you'll have to wait a few more months.
If you remember Excitebike from your childhood days, go play that. This is NOT a racing game, it is a physics simulator. The only controls are lean forward/back, gas, and brake. At no point in this game do you even get to steer. You simply jam on the throttle, travel in a straight line, and try to keep your balance on the bike. Save yourself the time, as every free gaming site on the internet (or your app store) has something similar, if not exactly the same thing. Complete shovelware garbage. Avoid at all cost.
