Strengths:    Good riders and locations. Good coverage of current dh in general.

Weaknesses:    Very bad sound, not only soundtrack but the mastering quality is atrocious. They have been making earthed vids for long enough now that they should know how to master sound properly. The music selection is also total rubbish.
The quality of the filming is ok, but again it needs a decent mastering. A simple colour correction in after effects would stop it looking like its straight from a dv tape, which it probably is. Thats not the problem, its the fact that you can tell is the problem, since 28 days later was shot on very similar to the ones im guessing they used for this. Again, its not a difficult thing to fix and something they should know by now.
Just lacks a general professional polished feel and just feels cheap, its like someones really really good home video. Antigravity is probably about the same level as earthed, and yet theyve done such a better job!
Theres simply no excuse, especially since at £15.99 it costs the same as the big names.
The editing is poor, It may sound bad, but you need some clever angles and slow motion not just to maintain attention but to show whats going on properly.

Bottom Line:   
Wait and see what Earthed 6 is like.

Go and buy Kranked 7, Seasons or Virtuous.
