Furious Fugitive

First Impression

I spent the first round reading the first parts of all the in-game comments. I spent the second round reading the last parts of all the in-game comments. I spent the third round looking at the track – at least a little. Looks decent, but it will have to prove itself! 

REVIEW

Track Design

This is a story track but which can also be played perfectly as a normal racing track. The story is brought forward through MT comments, which work very well. Technical/speedy Stadium and the escape from a prison is what it’s all about!

The actual track is very good featuring some technical sections yet brings decent speed. It also includes off-road dirt, small jumps, roof driving and a loop. However, it all seems a bit too, well, simple! Things are connected in a “basic” way giving the track a sort of beginner-style. The ideas are good, but a lot could have been done to improve the design.

Rating: 63%

Scenery

The scenery could probably also improve the “professional look” of the track. At times it’s very good, at times a bit too distant (meaning there’s basically no scenery at all at times 😛 ). The scenery isn’t exactly lacking, but quite a lot of places could look much better. Average, I’d say.

Rating: 50%

MediaTracker

Intro: Story introduction. Doesn’t show the track and the text is a bit too fast, but other than that it’s a good start to the story.

In-game: Some nice comments pushing the story forward. Again a bit too fast though. Also includes sounds. Camera changes where needed.

Outro: Nice but rather “normal” camera angles. Shows the race perfectly but doesn’t include any spectacular effects (there’s a custom image though). There’s also a comment at the start of the outro basically saying “I went to prison”. Honestly, I don’t get it. I can’t see the connection to the story of the track, and if it’s a true comment (and the author of the track actually went to prison), I think it’s an extremely unnecessary thing to add to a TM track.

Overall good but basic MT with nice comments to bring the story forward. Minor flaws are annoying, though, and a lot could have been done to increase the feeling of the track.

Rating: 68%

Originality

As a normal track, Furious Fugitive is nothing near original at all. As a story track, it’s actually less than what you might expect. In other words, it’s in no way original. But then again, all story tracks bring something different to a track, so that’s a slight plus. However, it has such a small effect that I’ll leave this part without a rating – it’s a good track but doesn’t bring much new.

No rating!

Fun Factor

This is a decent track to play, but I suggest you check out some other story tracks instead… This isn’t one you’ll want to play over and over again.

Rating: 51%

Summary

An average story track with basically everything beaing, well, average. The MT work stands out a bit from the rest of the track, but not much.

Final Rating: 56% Star (Average)

    Please, trackmakers – notice how confused the arrow signs are, and please use custom made signs instead. Make your own set of signs, don’t use the Nadeo set.
