Actually there should be an icon with two thumbs up! Hehe--looks like we have an old master paying us a visit, and he didn't come empty handed either!
I can't speak for EVO since I don't play it, but the MTM 2 version of this track is definitely right on the money. For starters, the track is...well, it's beautiful! Hehe-not too many guys are crazy about that word unless it's being pointed at a female, but I figured "beautiful" is a slightly better choice than "gorgeous".
Already I've heard a few different opinions on this track, but you know what - one look at it and you definitelty know this is the work of a "pro". Nope, not trying to sugarcoat this review in hopes of Mal sending me a check (tho that wouldn't be such a bad thing); I'm just calling it like I see it.
It's a very tight, somewhat curvy track with varying elevation changes...and I happen to think it makes for a great one-on-one track. I'm not sure what setting he used for the road texture, but it's "just" slippery enough to give you the feeling of being on partly snow, partly ice covered roads...and it's perfect! Furthermore, I absolutely love the detail in this baby, and the flag at the end off to the right as you head toward the finish line is a very nice touch!
I would say this one is very much on the pro level, but intermediates shouldn't shy away from it. If nothing else, this track will force you to learn control and patience. You definitely won't be barrelling thru this thing with the accellerator continuously mashed to the floor if you hope to see the finish line in under 2 minutes.
Speaking of which, nice lap time, Mal!!
I'm almost at a lost of what to say, really. I think this is one of those times where I see so many good qualities in a track that I'm incapable of putting it all into words. But for those who appreciate such high standards...they'll know exactly what I mean.
This is one of the few tracks whereby I highly recommend complex scenery - it's just dang nice to look at, and the battleship is simply...magnificant! Exceptional work on this one, Mal - outstanding track, bud. This one here get's a "Copey rating" of...10!!!!
