Bleeding Speed

First Impression

Faaaaast!

Track Design

Wow, what a beauty! A bit tricky to learn, but once you got it, this one’s pure speed with some very smooth and innovative jumps.

 The only things the track could need is more of the cool stuff…

Rating: 9.5 +

Scenery

The scenery is what I found to be the worst part about the track. A lot more is needed! Cliffs and track pieces make out most of the scenery, and while that isn’t enough I miss that little extra…

Rating: 6.5 +

Media Tracker

Intro: Quite cool, with great effects. But not enough of what an “intro” should contain…

Ingame: Loop cam changes.

Outro: At times, great camera placement and movement. At other times, scenery and vehicle crashes (even when driving at a fairly good speed, not too far from the authors validation run). A very good outro ruined by the annoying details.

Rating: 8.5 +

Originality

Some of the jumps are quite original, and those same jumps, combined with the high speed, is what makes the track so good! But as always, more originality IS possible…

Rating: 7.0 +

Fun Factor

Fun to learn, fun once you’ve got it, fun to improve your time on… It’s a lot of fun, in other words!

Rating: 9.0 +

Summary

Very fast with some cool and innovative jumps. The scenery lacks a bit, but the MT work compensates a lot for that.

Final Rating: 8.5 (very good) ++++

***

Notes:

– Ratings range from 1 (bad) to 10 (perfect). 5 is average.

– The final rating of a track is not the average of all sub-ratings. For example, a track not being very original doesn’t mean it’s a bad track.

– If you want to have your own track reviewed, you can sign your track up for a fee of 500 coppers. Simply send an in-game message to “Jozii” with the coppers and the name of the track (which must have been uploaded at the United Exchange first).

Your help is always needed! If you are interested in writing track reviews for the TMU Blog, you may apply by dropping an e-mail to Jozii@pp.inet.fi.
