First Impression

Interesting, short and a combination of speed and technical. Looks good!

Track Consistency

The track is a nice combination of speed and technical. It is quite smooth, but with a few spots that only work if you drive perfectly. Rating: 4

Scenery

Morning Delight has a fair amount of scenery. It looks good, while it still allows for good online races. However, the scenery doesn’t bring much new, and could be considered average. Rating: 3.5

Originality

There is nothing original about this track. This is not necessarily a bad thing, because it is still a very good track, but it will have a negative affect on the final ratings. Rating: 2

MediaTracker

Morning Delight advertise itself by mentioning its MT work. However, it really isn’t much to go “hurray” for. The intro is extremely short and consists of basically just a view of the sky and the sun, and some graphics at the bottom of the screen presenting the track name and author.

In-game the MT work is just a camera switch through a loop, and the outro is extremely horrible – only a few camera changes, and more than half of the replay doesn’t have any MT work at all. A bad outro is worse than no outro at all.

The intro is not too horrible however (but not good either), so that saves the MediaTracker rating from a total defeat.  Rating: 1.5

Summary

Quite an average track, but with a style that most people will probably enjoy. A mix of technical and speed. However, the track is also quite boring, because it doesn’t bring anything new. The MT work is horrible! The track would have been better off without any intro/outro at all.

It is also worth to mention that the track should work quite well for online racing, and the author time is quite good. It should provide a challenge or most people.

Final Rating: 3.5 (average)

Notes:

– Ratings range from 1 (bad) to 5 (excellent).

– If you are interested in writing track reviews for TMUnited.wordpress.com, you may apply by dropping an e-mail to Jozii@pp.inet.fi.

– Due to many people asking for their tracks to be reviewed (which is normally ignored), it has been decided that by paying 50 coppers in-game to “Jozii”, you can have one track reviewed. The coppers will be used as prize money in contests. Only one review per author, though.
