    Im really enjoying the track as it goes, not a fan of the reverse tracks in general but I love Sebenco Climb and really grew to love Citta Nuova after getting the better of it. I agree with what your saying about the flow of the track but its quite unique the way you have to battle with the physics as you descend and it wouldnt quite be Wipeout without that bitch of a track that laughs at you until you master it.

    Although given the choice, i'd much rather have a Wipeout game without reverse tracks.

    generally, nothing was made / studied to make engaging and thrilling reversed tracks, every ski jumps have disappeared, all alternative road have disappeared, it is definitively a quick addition from SL for the game...
    I think that sebenco is not worse than the others in regard to the reverse line, it pilots just in another way ,but on the contrary aesthetically speaking, it is for me (the only) completely missed (and however, it had means it to make something nice with this theme and snow-covered environment) ...

    I only just noticed your post. That's bizarre. I haven't played it in HD so I had jumped to the assumption that Metropia reversed was going to be the White route that appeared in Pulse. I guess reversing the tracks really was just a last minute thing and should probably be considered a bonus rather than actual WO tracks.

    While it's pretty clear that the reverse tracks weren't given the same amount of care as their forward versions, I actually like Metropia Reverse better than forward, and also better than Metropia White in Pulse (one of the very few tracks I actually tried in Pulse). Sure, on some reverse tracks it seems more like an afterthought, but hey, better than nothing, right? And some reverse tracks really turned out great. I absolutely love Vineta Reverse (apart from the most awkwardly placed speed pad since Altima's first... ).

    +1 to every word, Martin. To me, Metropia Reverse is like Metropia white with all the annoying stuff taken out and replaced with cool stuff - such as the turn right and dive near the start, and the blind summit Very fun stuff.

    Sebenco Descent is certainly interesting, looks spectacular and scary on your way down, but fun? Only for Citta Nuova fans, I think.

    I'm starting to get a good line on Sebenco... but I still don't like it. Reverse is still just SO much better and fluid.

    I'm curious (reviving a dead post here - I know)...

    Have any of you changed viewpoints on Sebenco reverse? I used to hate it, but now it's one of my favorites (by a wide margin)

    Actually, it seems all the tracks I hated initially, I love them now that I've learned their quirks.

    By the way - anyone know what city that is in the background on Sebenco Climb? It's a lot easier to see on the reverse track, if you boost around the windmills and go into photo mode, you get quite the view. Looks like there are sub-tropical or palm trees on one of the streets... Unless they're conifers with the bottoms being hard to see. Anyone from SL care to enlighten me? I've been wondering this for a while now, even googled it - which brought me right back to this thread.

    But yeah - I love Sebenco Reverse now.

    Each to their own.

    I love both versions of Sebenco Climb, reverse probably even more than forwards.

    I prefer only the forward track, all, the original used in campaign.
    Sebenco reverse is a nice track, i think a little easier than the others reverse.
    For arcade perfect i use 1 or 2 hours for each track, for sebenco reverse only 3 race!!!!
