    I was waiting for someone to call me out on that hahahaha.

    Truth, after looking through all the screencaps I have of the game, I don't have any pictures of me actually going fast and showing anything interesting.

    So yes, I cut a corner :orange:

    Again no I can use both the space bar for skiing and right mouse for jetpack. With the mounds on the challenge I simply overshoot them when I jet, which is something I'm trying to fix but other than cancelling my forward momentum I can't land on the other side.

    As with hitting the hill my puppy pulled my arm off of my mouse and when I hit the hill I was unable to jet over/up it.

    Other than being able to clear tall buildings with a single bound and having to deal with my puppy and his fascination with arms I think I'm good for skiing.

    Next up: Shooting accurately at speeds over 150.
    Lol, well I can't help with puppy's attempt at the cutest arm-mauling ever, but I also may be the worst person to give advice in the game. I've only played through the tutorials and a few bot rounds.

    I hit a 242kp/h grab last night. It was so fast!
  • UPSLynxUPSLynx Top EA shill, The Dean of Computer Graphics Redwood City, CA Icrontian
    That grab was pretty epic man. Plus dat disk boost.

    Ilriyas, best advice I can give is to basically hold down the ski button at all times. No real reason to let off it unless you need to stop. You won't always nail downslopes (especially at speed), but if you can catch just a little bit of it, or at least land of flat ground, you can maintain speed and let your jetpack recharge before the next hill. The most important bit is that you're ready to line up for a flag grab.

    Would not add to my friends list. Dunno if you just haven't chosen an in-game name yet or what.

    "It does everything the original game did and more."
    Actually, i can't agree with that. The game has way less gadgets and vehicles.
  • BobbyDigiBobbyDigi ? R U #Hats ! SoCal Icrontian
    yeah... I created an account but the initial download is still going. I've yet to be in game.

    Oh man, this review makes me want to play so badly, but I'm not very good at going fast. Any other slowbies getting good at fast?

    Are there roles on the team for non-fast players? because I don't want to go fast.

    I cheated on my Lent commitment a tiny little bit last night. I'll be back on in April, I think I could get into this with a little practice.
