Reasons for disliking this level: The nature of this track makes it very long. It's a Level 1 and therefore along with a lack of obstacles, the level feels very drawn out. The AI is only a challenge in Lap 1 where the 1st/2nd HTs drive at high speed.
How the race could have been improved: Change the AI. Not necessarily change the order in which they finish, but program them so that there are more overtakes/mistakes etc. No wonder people don't like the early Egypt levels too much (I don't mind them).
