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!
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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% (Average)
Time – Might do as a good WR track.
