So how is the general learning curve in this compared to the original? I got to the extreme tracks in HD and just couldn't hack it. Couldn't even finish them, at any number of faults. Do I have a chance in Evo?

I found it easier than HD. I still can't do the last extreme track but the learning curve is much cleaer this time.

You should be able to do all the hard tracks and properly the first few extreme tracks so you won't miss much

I think you'll like this game even if you can't do the extreme tracks since you can actually get new tracks from track central. If you enjoyed the game at medium/hard there should end up being content for you for a long time at least.

Edit: by the way, I never heard the checkpoints (the sound they are supposed to make when you reach them). Is that right?

First off, thank you for your feedback. I considered making a checkpoint before the little railway track but I kinda thought it ruined the vibe of the escape at the end there. I didn't think it was too much to expect after most other medium-difficulty tracks have two difficult areas confined between two checkpoints. I did add one right before you enter the cage area though because I thought that was the most frustrating after testing it. By design it's mean to get harder as it goes on, as you get closer to the refinery, but I realize it might not be perfect for everyone.

Not sure about the checkpoints not making a sound, I thought they did but I'll have to give it another look.

Limbo is so hard for me for some reason. The altered physics throws me off every time, and I continually fuck up at the drop down :(

i finished Inferno III for the first time earier today. 70 something faults, wasnt too bad.

if it werent for those planks and to a lesser extent the barrel jump after the planks, it would be a cake walk for me. its a short and seemingly easy level.

i am so bad at the planks though. they were my major stumbling block in HD and the reason i never 0 faulted Inferno 2. (that and a lack of an extra 50 hrs practice)

is it you that said this earlier in the thread too? there are no altered physics in the Limbo track. the camera is pulled back and its dark, thats pretty much all that different.

it;s not a great track though, i agree. at least its not as shitty as 1 Bit Trip! (like someone else said earlier. hate that fucking track)

who is Jimbo on GAF? is he even still here? (im gonna feel dumb huh?). we added each other for HD and ive been chasing his ghosts ever since. i immediately forgot his gaf name though.

do you have MadMav on your friend list too? i think i got him through jimbo if i remember correctly...

I'm not even kidding, this practically MAKES local multiplayer. It seems so simple in theory but makes it SO much fun on some more "loose" tracks. The multiplayer locally has this crazy dynamic where if the tracks are flowy and less technical, they make for great fun with the bailout finish mechanic, but with technical tracks, you get the added touch of watching people fail and begin hoping the lone survivor will carry them to the next checkpoint; only to see them fail beautifully as well. This game is a riot offline.

Are you sure? I am almost positive that the bike is far floatier in the Limbo track than any other normal level. You get a similar effect in the Super Meat Boy track.

The physics in Limbo aren't different. It's just feels different because the camera tracks your rider differently. I find it makes it a harder tracks as well.

The one in Inferno 3 is much easier to make the required jump from though. I have no problem getting on the barrels on either but its the jump to the platform on The Wreck that I can rarely make.

it is kind of fun in friend only games, and i could see it in most supercross tracks (not on any Trials tracks). that might be acceptable in a staight line type track.

but take that redlynx created one that was out on the first day (uh brain boxes or seomthing... i forget). at the end there are two ways to finish. hop the lip or do a backflip and hop over. being able to eject ruins the whole ending of that track. everyone will cheese it every time.

its fun for a goof, but i want to win or lose because of how well i ride, not some skill game launch bullshit.

against friends its all good though.

I think I was there for that. There was that one track where my lane had this MASSIVE thing right at the start line that I couldn't get over, and someone else's lane just had nothing in it at all. That was fun!

This was my nemesis yesterday. Rage quit at it three times. I finally got it and posted this on another forum, it might help.

Jump up there and lean forwards in such a way that your front wheel lands on the barrel and your back wheel is high in the air, and slam on the brakes. You should balance there for a bit. From that position, you can quickly lean backwards to shift your back wheel to the barrel, and then quickly launch forwards from there with a little bunny hop to make the distance if needed. Still takes a bit of practice, but it works. I was trying for ages just to land on the barrel normally and wait, and you just can't get enough speed off it that way. If that doesn't make sense, find my replay on the leaderboard to see me do it.

I was reaching that bit on 15 faults and fumbling over in 200, but now I've set a time of 19 faults and got the gold medal for it!

No trick to it, it's just like you think it should go. Land steep and get slight traction on that rear wheel.

that guy is handling the bike like a real trials rider. I can't do stuff like where he hitches the bike backwards on the rear wheel. Maybe it'll come with time, I'm just getting used to balancing the bike.

That stuff just comes naturally over time. The more you play, the more control of the bike is second nature. Just give it some time.

The learning curve is much steadier in Evolution than in HD. The extreme tracks are still really hard, but there's a great balance of other tracks, and doable, yet difficult challenges even on the first set of tracks. The platinums on the early tracks are very difficult, yet still attainable.
