I thought you could view anybody's replay in this? I've just noticed the option only shows up on the 'Overall' leaderboard, and not the 'Friends' one.

Last game it was only the top 1000 runs. Is there an arbitrary limit on this one?

There's nothing really hard about the track, it's just trying not to make many stupid errors. It does allow you 5 restarts as the cutoff for gold.

It's infuriating! The 5 faults I think I can manage, but after a concerted effort to grab gold, it turns out you really have to fucking rattle your way through it to beat the par time. Like, if you fall and have to restart at a checkpoint quite far behind (which is common), you may as well start again from the beginning. Gah!

If I'd've just faulted one less time I would've done it with ample time to spare. The time limit is very generous.

I'll take my hat off to the 'Bulge, he's done well on Fishy Business. I took over 300 faults and four times as long to complete that!

Just reached the 30 min limit on Dark City Run having racked up over 450 faults. That cunting cunt of a ramp over the scoreboard is almost impossible.

Definitely not unbeatable, I can do the first section about 2 seconds faster, but thats about 1 in 10 and then multiplied by the 1 in 10 of getting the rest of the course right, I just cba trying again until someone beats me.

Giga gold. Fucked it up and made one error 2/3rds of the way through otherwise it'd been a clean run.

Gah! Was about five seconds ahead of everyone on one of the hard tracks, no faults, on the last obstacle... took me over 20 attempts.

Oops.

After getting sick of watching Ramsea crash and accusing him of being '...fucking shit. Anyone could get over that, you fag...' I gave in and have been playing this. I get annoyed with it very easily and have had one or two full-blown tantrums over it. I especially want to beat WTB though, so expect a friend request, Johnny :kiss:

It's infuriating and addictive and I want to beat you all at it.*

*Apart from the tracks where I think "How the cheating cunting fuck did you manage that?! Cheating fucks..."

Four player multi person madness is freaking aces. There's some tracks where you play side by side which are great fun but you can also do the levels from the main game -including excessive swearathon GigaTrack, which is great fun with four people racing against one another, especially when everyone is messing up at the same spot. Other characters appear as a ghost on your screen rather than the customary dot, and there's a progress bar at the top, so you don't feel like you're playing by your lonesome.

What is/isn't fun are the sodding extreme tracks. Twenty minutes later and over 300 restarts and none of the people I was playing with had managed to get over the forth obstacle.

Not tried the multiplayer yet. Attemped to get a game once but just sat in the lobby for ages, gave up and played the single player again.

Admittedly I haven't really tried many of the extreme tracks yet, but 2 mins into "Sin City" is a right bastard.

Fair play to WTB for getting through first time.

I bought this on a whim t'other day, despite growing to hate it's predecessor. I like it more, it controls a bit better I feel, and the level designers have made some great tracks, especially where they've made obstacles that look like cunting fucks, but are actually pretty easy, much more satisfying than the first game.

Castle Crash took me fucking AGES to get a gold on. There's a particular bit that is a right cunt - think it's a steep slope just before the big jump onto the last section.

That's the fucker. I've just done it without any faults, but not nearly in time for a gold medal. The time before that, I got all the way to the end in lightning speed and fell into the last pit. :'(

Ed: and now a whisker off 0:44. Bollocks!

Yeah, got it on my first go yesterday. Those slopes are all easy if you enter them fairly slowly from the bottom and just lean forward while accelerating. Took me far too long to suss that out. :p
