Greetings forumer(s)? and Redlynx,

My overall impression of the Beta is a very postitive one. There are only a few minor bugs I have noticed and would suggest addressing but overall I am very impressed with how the game is turning out. I cannot compare graphics but it should be obvious that the other port cannot hold a candle against 1080p 60fps DX11 graphics/gameplay. Right before the countdown to start a trial I notice a bit of texture pop in, in some areas. Not a big deal, but it catches my eye when I see it. Also, if I put shadows on low and leave everything else on high the shadow textures start going crazy and flickering. Also, this could be my 'rig', although I find it hard to believe because I can run Metro 2033 on High on 1080p/60 fps, but the frames will dip drastically in the middle of a trail. Nothing game-breaking per-se but it still sucks. Kind of ruins my concentration a bit. Everything else, is very enjoyable.

The PC community and I welcome the team and thank all of you for the hard work you put in on the game. http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/clap.gif http://forum.redlynx.com/forum/images/smilies/icon/geek.gif

I've enjoyed it. My only issue was that it felt like a grind to unlock 200+ medals just to get the phoenix and that frustrated me a little. I just wanted to ride the phoenix on InfernoII and the like and that took ages to unlock.. But I get why thats was done and am glad new riders get that learning curve.

I've found it pretty solid and I'm keen for the release version to hopefully iron out any small bugs that are there. I'm also not sure if it's just because I played them so much more, but I really find the Trials HD tracks more fun than the Evo ones. Much better and more technical driving lines... but maybe thats just my warped perspective..

Great game and im totally happy to play it all over again.
