Gold Edition is £11.09 with an extra 55 tracks I believe.
I used to love motocross madness. Played it to death in 1998. An internet connected toaster or fridge probably has the power to run that game now. And it was 3d. Why a quarter of a century later are people accepting 2d motocross games? It makes no sense.

It's about the playability and enjoyment over what the game looks like.

Go figure, people prefer gameplay over graphics

I agree 100% for myself. However, given the gameplay and graphics of the past I also have to ask, why can't we have the gameplay AND decent 3D graphics that technology allows us these days?
The real answer is because it costs less. Marketing will tell you it is about nostalgia, but ultimately it is about their bottom line and the time invested in creating the game.

Having played all the trials, this one wouldn't have worked in 3d. It's a bit like excitebike. Great game in 2d,but when it moved to 3d on the n64 it lost its fun factor.

All 3d games are better than 2d games, that's why Superman 64 is better than Super Metroid

Trials uses 3D graphics and is very much not a "2D motocross game". You sound like you don't have a clue what you're talking about, which I guess I'd expect from someone who's harking back to 1998 with a tear in their eye.

It’s inbetween what you are both saying. Trials is 2.5D.

Also, Trials relies heavily on precise controls in shifting the weight of your bike to get the best times possible, something that would be an absolute nightmare to control in 3D.

I've got to disagree with you on this occasion, mate. He's cracking on about wanting "both graphics and gameplay", as if Trials Rising is lagging behind Motocross Madness or its 2019 equivalent in terms of graphics. The perspective isn't important in this, which is the 2.5D that you're correctly referring to.

For a start, Trials is a (shock horror) trials game, not a motocross game, so it wouldn't suit the 3D perspective that he thinks is important, as it relies on precision when controlling lateral balance.

It's just an entirely spurious complaint.

I’m not arguing about the gameplay or what is suited. I agree with you 2.5D suits this better

You're saying that they cheaped out on the graphics and that you should get both the gameplay and the graphics, "like what Motocross Madness had back in the day".

That makes no sense. The graphics are 3D and done very well to modern standards. If you don't mean that you think it should be a free-roaming 3D game (which it absolutely should not) then what do you mean?

Apologies. Got you confused with the original dude, Regprentice.

I agree with you that it's 2.5D game, but that's not relevant to the argument Reg is making, which is some weird idea that they've cut corners to save money.

Yeah I don’t think it was to cut corners I think the gameplay is how the 2.5D came about, like Rayman Legends is 2.5D but better for it than it would be in 3D. Some games fit 2.5D well. The graphics are 3D but played on a 2D plane.

Clearly never played a Trials game, I too played motocross madness and it in fairness there was very little to it, I much prefered the earlier Motoracer which was the first 3DFX game i played.

Trials is just a sublime motocross game, also it is in fact 3D and even if it wasn't, 3D doesn't make a game good, there are hundreds of 2D games 16bit or even 8bit stuff released every year by indies that also are far better than Motocross madness.
