We had a Featured Builder last week, so, welcome back to the Uplay Recommended! We have a nice selection of tracks this week, as we always try for, and they might fit MY current play-style more than some other drops. We’ve got some tough tracks, some technical tracks and we’re even dropping 20% more tracks than usual! I do know that 20% of 5 is 1, but it sounds more impressive saying “20% more tracks” than “1 more track”, right?

Anyhow, we can all read what I think of the tracks, but they’re all more than capable of talking for themselves in Track Central.

BCC4 : Revolution 909 by jami286

Revolution is an apt name for jami’s track. With a theme somewhere between future-tech and an ancient Roman capital, there are parts here that should NOT fit together, but they do… There is a fun, yet punishing, flowing driving line with just enough anger-inducing obstacles to keep it challenging, but it’s not so difficult that you are not left thinking “I’ll never finish this with 0 faults”.

Under siege 2.0 [397] by RaketeAal397

I’m not sure where I’m riding in Under Siege, but I am sure that some bad stuff is going down in the world. Green sludge, explosions, walls falling down. It all sets the track up well for the use of physics based obstacles as well as the more static sections that make up most of the track. The beginning features a nicely done series of jumps that forces players to try out different lines in the quest for platinum. This is a quest that I am currently failing.

Solidify by ProDemon101

The hardest difficulty track this week is Solidify. There is ONE spot that made me sit down my controller for about 10 minutes on Monday morning and just do something else. I would almost call this an incline-trainer, and by getting these techniques down, you’ll become a better Trials player.

604 The Haunting by Kush Land 604

I think everyone knows by now what kind of tracks that I like, and this is nearly perfect for me. Nice technical uphill with enough challenge for both new and experienced players. The theme is well realized and feels like an abandoned village in the mountains, but the real star here is the driving line.

Candyland XSX by WelluTheKing

There are certain thoughts that are brought up in Trials when the words Candyland and Supercross are mentioned (Thanks, MikeB), but this isn’t your old-school Candyland. 8 lanes (all complete) and a line with one heck of a deceptively simple appearance. Grab some friends and take on Candyland.

The Cove by Dr4gOnsFuRy

It’s been a while since I have seen a really well done “bouncy” track, but I guess the timer starts over again today. The Cove has a simple enough line, but if you don’t have the bunny-hops down, you’ll have a bad time. Flat to flat, incline to flat, decline to flat… all the bunny-hops are here. FuRy’s decoration game is on point, and this is definitely a track you don’t want to miss.


Well, that does it for Uplay Recommended this week. Which selection was your favorite? Are we missing something awesome in here? Go ahead and let us know.

Until next time, riders.

The Cove was all kinds of impressive Dr4gOnsFury. Really enjoyed it.
Solidify was another great line.

Nice picks this week all around.
