Has to be Rubacava; so many places to go in that 2nd year and so many characters to meet and discuss; to me that was the bulk of the game as it took so long to get everything.

Oooooh, Rubacaaaavaaaa...

01-28-2006, 07:03 AM
Yeah Rubucava was my favourite too

Well I preferred Year 4 El Marrow... I guess not many other people did though

R.R.V 4X4s MM2 Group

Wow, a Midtown Madness 2 group, I haven't seen one of those in ages :)

I voted Year 1 El Marrow. although Ruba Cava is cool, I liked the big city Art Deco New York atmosphere of El Marrow.

01-29-2006, 06:16 AM
Rubacava ofcourse, it has more magic an romance, it has poetry , art and comminst friends.

More intersiting conversations with intersiting people. :)

Another vote for Rubacava, Year 2. Nothing can compare to that place.

Just thinking about experiencing Rubacava for the first time makes me ":)" intensely.

01-30-2006, 11:37 AM
yeah my favourite is year 2 Rubacava:)

Year 4, specially the train station; but I have already explained that elsewhere.

02-07-2006, 09:03 PM
Ah! Rubacava everyones favorite corupt city

02-08-2006, 12:35 PM
Rubacava for me too. A pity we couldn't visit Nuevo Marrow in year 4, the city was very interesting.
But, hey, a pity we couldn't visit El Marrow in year 1 :D It's one of the most important city in the game and we only visit a few "screens"...

02-09-2006, 04:29 AM
^^Yeah, that's why we need a director's cut version with a huge El Marrow section.

02-14-2006, 09:58 PM
Just as long as a directors cut wouldn't compell them to include nudity. They aren't kidding when they say boner

I also enjoyed the sureal absurdity of the edge of the world

02-17-2006, 09:36 AM
Rubacava, year 2 of course

04-27-2006, 07:49 AM
Rubacava year 2 hands down, no contest. The directors cut should have a bigger slice of Rubacava to revisit in year 4 as well. I wish I could have seen what had happened to the Calavera Cafe and Max's Cat Track.

Nuevo Marrow (Year 4)
I love that part of the game.

Rubacava (Year 2) would be my second pick though.
Sometimes I wish I was a beatnik hanging out at The Blue Casket.

05-19-2006, 07:11 PM
I really love the look of the Edge of the World, although Rubacava2 had the best set of puzzles.

05-21-2006, 02:49 PM
Rubacava, handsdown. For the reasons that I love those guys in the Blue Casket, everyone in that chapter has an interesting story, and the location is a great place to be at night.

Rubacava all the way.

05-22-2006, 03:19 PM
Rubacava, Year 2. It has a certain glamour about it. And great music, too.

Damn straight, Rubacava has "Swanky Maximino" and The Blue Casket!

05-24-2006, 04:44 PM
Don't forget Captain Velasco, Membrillo and, of course, Carla, Toto and pretty much every other character.

05-24-2006, 07:16 PM
Rubacava is also where you can spot most of the paralels to Casablanca

so true!

Year 2 rubacava is the "meat" of the entire game...the story really starts moving when you get there...it was such a classy place too. I loved Manny's tux. I decided to get one myself because of that game...I was still wondering if the game was amazing or really amazing, but when I got to rubacava year 2, it instantly turned too good to keep quiet about...love that game...
P.S. Tall Guy, it changed my life too

I was stuck for almost a year in the forest (damn tree) so when I finally got to Rubacava, I was glad to have places to go and people to talk to, besides, I liked the Vegas style

07-17-2006, 10:38 AM
That was one of the few puzzles in the game that I actually got rather quickly. The one that annoyed me the most was the whole betting stub/getting the picture at the Cat Track.

I never figured that out, I checked the walkthrough after six months, I was loosing my mind there (I was 12, lol)
