First Impression

Fast, technical and tricky. A good combination 😀

Track Design

Styla is a very good track with a great combination of speed and technical. For a Bay track, it is actually very fast. There are plenty of open areas and large platforms where you are able to reach extremely high speeds. This is mixed with technical twists and turns, all which makes for a great challenge.

Overall the track has a quite smooth design with some cool jumps and interesting sections. In short, a great track design! Rating: 9.5


Bay tracks usually have a great scenery, as the scenery blocks for Bay are quite detailed and interesting by nature. And Styla is no exception. The scenery is well mixed with buildings, and the larger platforms still have details in the scenery that makes them look interesting too. However, at points the scenery seems to just repeating itself, causing it to look a bit boring in the long run. Rating: 8.0


The intro is great, but the outro is lacking a bit. First off, it’s a bit over-crowded with effects, and while things look cool, it sometimes is a bit too much. Second, the camera tends to go too low sometimes, going “in to the ground”. This is at times extremely annoying. Rating: 6.5


Great speed for a Bay track, but that’s about it… Rating: 4.0

Fun Factor

Styla is great fun to play, and quite challenging, at least in the beginning. But it does lack variety at times, lowering the fun factor a bit. But overall, a very enjoyable track. Rating: 7.5


Great track design which allow great speeds to be reached. The scenery is good too, but tends to be repeating itself a bit. MT work is decent, but it has it’s flaws, and originality is lacking. Great custom music.

Overall a fun track to drive, but it’s a bit of the same from time to time. A good track in need of some fine tuning.

Final Rating: 8.0 (very good)

    hm, this is about the first track review where i’m not equal minded about the score, this should’ve had a much bigger score, but that’s just my opinion…

    it’s more the originality which i would’ve given him a 9.0 or something… 😉

  2. Jozii says:

    Actually, perhaps the platforms are original for a Bay track – I can’t think of having seen something similar in Bay – But the track is extremely lot like a Stadium track with platforms, thus the low originality score. However, I obviosuly didn’t give it a four just for the speed, but the speed was the most important factor.

    But a 9.0? No way!
