Boring and unsmooth? Doesnt look so…
Imported from TMN, this is a good and nice fullspeed track with many nice stunt objects like loops (2), wallrides (4) and a corkscrew. Besides those many stunt blocks, you drive a bit on road, on plattform and theres also a little grasspart 😀 The stunts dominate the real drivin sections.
The difficulty is easy – medium . Nothing really tricky. Theres also a PF start with a simple straight jump, which gets a bit boring after soem tries, because theres nothing spectacular happening. The finish jump is interesting, though I’ve seen it several times now. The track is not unsmooth, but it becomes boring after a while.
After some tries the track is very easy to drive and theres nothing new and awesome in the track. But it’s a good track for WR hunting or online racing , a track where hundredths decide.
With about 5500 coppers, quite a lot of blocks are used here. The scenery looks good all the time and interesting, but like most oldschool stadium tracks, this one looks pretty grey. I think there could’ve been more colored blocks used to create the United feel.
Intro: Very short… about 2 seonds. It only shows the tracks name and a reflection of the letters.
In-Game: A custom cam used at the PF start. Looks ok, and the necessary camswitches in all stunt objects work.
Outro: Good outro. Got some nice cams, without any flaws. but even when I’m a hater of fx colors, this grey scenery screams for colors !
Wow you need a magnifier to see the original parts. The most original part is still the finish jump i think, but even that is not very original… Maybe the custom music is a bit original 😛
Theres defnitely a fun factor existing, especially in the first 5 – 10 minutes. but after it, the track gets a bit boring, cause there are no challenging parts and soon you drive at the tracks limit, so I recommend to play this track on online servers 😀
All in all this track is pretty cool for online racing and for those depserate record hunters who can drive half an hour on a track, just to improve their time by 0.10 sec. The grey scenery and all of those wallrides and loops on an average speed will soon loose on interest. Good stunts though, and a nice oldschool track.
Final Rating: 6.0 (decent)
