I’ve never had to wait this long to drive a track due to the shadow rendering before, but it sure was worth it! I loved the first test drive 😀
A full-speed track (never have to break or let go of the gas), but with a well made off-road section and a few nicely placed engine breakers which makes it feel wrong calling it a speed track. It’s a fast track, yet with a “slow” and relaxed feeling. The name truly suits the track, and with that awesome music (which still fits the speed and excitement of the track), the relaxation is even greater 😀
There’s a cool loop which I dove a few rounds in before realizing I was going in circles. A cool design here. Unfortunately I can’t say the track maintains that cool design at all sections. There are some longer normal turns which are a bit, not boring, but too simple.
There’s also a jump where you’ll have to have a decent speed in order not to crash. This jump adds to the challenge, along with some parts that could be considered technical (yet not technical enough to force you to slow down).
Overall a very cool design and no obvious flaws at all. However, I dislike the many long turns, which I believe could have been replaced with other cooler stuff instead.
Awesome scenery! At first I was ready to give the scenery a 10, but then I started noticing a few minor details I dislike. There are some “empty” places where something could have been placed. Sometimes a small detail is enough to complete the big picture.
The lights are cool and the many colors make the track look interesting, and I must say it’s among the best scenery I’ve seen, so I can’t get too hooked up on the details 😉
Intro: Cool effects, really cool in fact. Doesn’t really show the track though…
In-game: Flawed GPS which crashes through scenery quite a few times. Cam changes at the PF start, although not the best choice of camera angle. Cam changes where needed.
Outro: Interesting effects and good camera angles. A few scenery crashes annoyed me, but they were really small. I assume this is (as so often) a case of how and where you drive.
The loop must be counted as original in this case (although I have seen it before), and generally the overall design is quite original too. Some new and interesting ideas, and the scenery adds a bit to it as well, but not extremely original…
Really fun to drive! The scenery is so cool I could drive it a few extra times just to see it again 😛 The tricky jump and parts where it’s easier to crash will have you drive the track again and again, and the various technical aspects makes it a challenging track to get a perfect time on.
Great design with some really cool ideas. A bit un-inventive at times though. The scenery is awesome, and so is the MT work, although the latter has quite a few flaws.
A truly fun track to drive, but with a few missing details. Too bad with the long rendering time as well.
Final Rating: 9.0 (excellent)
