This is a fun arcade racer with odd physics settings(including being unable to touch other cars. Easy to play hard to master. Most of the gameplay would come from racing on other peoples custom tracks or attempting to get times on the leaderboard in solo. The big seller behind trackmania is its map editor that has a lot of preset peices you will assemble together. The odd physics allow you to create crazy tracks, anywhere on the board for having fun or to have something challenging to beat. The game can also be very competitive with a leaderboard that can be viewed at local and international levels(You pick your location when you create your account and you will be a part of a set of regional to international leaderboards). The most fun i have is competing for the solo international records who get to have their posted to that track.

What I liked:

Compete Against Anyones Records- For every single track everyones best score is saved to the leaderboard along with a replay. You can select any of the records from the top players to your friends and add the vehicle to track to race against. All of the records you select will appear as ghost cars that align with your actions(reseting will reset them as well). You can use the top players ghosts to learn their strategies for the tracks and have a crap load of opposition to choose from.

Solo Mode- The tracks are Divided into difficulties(represented as colours) from super easy to super difficult(and trust me when i say difficult it becomes extremely hard to even get close the the finish line). The difficulties are great for easing you into the easy driving to the crazy ♥♥♥♥ you will end up doing as the tracks slowly introduce harder and harder combinations of the track peices.

Track/Map Editor- Very easy to use. All peices have interfaces that tell you what can connect to what. A large number of peices to choose from. The peices are now much more "realistic" in design and appearance/ They look much more natural. Once you start thinking outside the box in your design you will come to realize that actually connecting peices is not even necassary. Then you will start to make crazy courses.

Physics/Driving- Like in the past for the trackmania series. Each of the themes use different settings of physics and cars that perform quite differently. The same applies here so your going to need to learn the unique physics. Simply driving is very simple however you will find the the courses you will end up driving suddenly the driving becomes difficult to master.

Multiplayer- Generally the race types are time trails and regular racing. Time trials give you as set amount of time/laps to get a good time. You can reset yourself/return to last checkpoint at will. What the others are doing is irrelevant however you can still what they are doing. The regular racing is either a point to point format or an actual circuit. In these races you cannot reset your time. You can still return to the last checkpoint or the start, but your time is not reset. The order the playing cross the finish line is the final score. The matches will be ranked(solo tracks with hard rules and full leaderboard support)

Low System Requirements/Graphics/Performance- The graphics are not really great or anything special. They are an improvement from the older track mania themes. Max graphics is laughable for a gtx1070 and when you drop them down many lower end machines can get playable performance. My laptop with a gt740 works perfectly well on descent settings. Game is well optimized as a whole as I haven't come across any issues relating to it.

Perfect Balancing- Like the rest of trackmania everyones car is the exact same performance wise. You can only customize is paint scheme. If your not lagging everyone is perfectly balanced when it comes to the game itself. The gameplay consists of experience and skill.

Unified Launcher- When you have multiple trackmania2 titles they are all accesible without closing the game you originally started.

What I disliked:

The is nothing in specific that really bothered me about this game, but just to clarify it is an arcade style game not a simulator in any way. There are no ways to modify the body or performance of the car. So if your into the serious racers this game might not interest you.

Final Summary:

I would recommend this game to anyone who races casually or wants a challenge. If you need to be able to change setting for the vehicle this game is not for you.

Trackmania Canyon is a really fun game, if you have ever played a Trackmania game you will find yourself at home. If online against others or alone, it is basically always you vs. the best time. There are no collisions, no agressive driving people smashing into you... just your own skill stands between you and the gold medal. ;)

Highly recommended.

Let me explain something about this game. This game has a multiplayer that is NOT for the casual gamer. It is quite competitive, and it likes to display this competitiveness all up in yo' face. You WILL see that one dude (or multiple, I mean, they're everywhere) that can finish the track in half the time it takes you to finish it. I see this every other time I go onto this game.

The game has a steep learning curve that requires at least an hour or more in order to learn the basic physics of the game. After that, there are tricks that, once learned, can help you set better times in the multiplayer. (i.e. Left-CTRL braking & using a controller.) The tracks in this game play a major role in shaping your skills, as they are user-created. They can go from being pretty basic to being some of the hardest tracks you'll encounter on your time here.

I know very well that time makes all the difference in the multiplayer. In fact, it MEANS the difference. Times are what determine your position in a round, and the time is calculated in thousandths of a second, making photo finishes seem like nothing. You can set a record time in a single round, only for someone to beat you by .002. It really can be that close. There IS the odd tie, but it doesn't happen that often.

Now, you should go into this game knowing that you're not gonna win your first race by a long shot. Practice makes perfect. It blends in the arcade-style driving physics and fantasy environment with a competitve multiplayer that stands with some of the best. I've never been so involved in a racing game that isn't a sim. Trackmania 2 also has its own ladder system, which determines how well you do amongst other players worldwide. And we're not only talking worldwide, either. It can track official progress to as close as your own state (if you live in the US, that is). You have a number for everything, from server rankings, to single player rankings, to country rankings. The better you do, the more the number goes down, and the more accomplished you feel.

I recommend this game, because it makes the $20 you'll dump on this game worth the cost. Now, do mind, this was a game that was made BEFORE the UPlay era, so it doesn't require the UPlay launcher. Instead, it has its own launcher for launching titles, although it still is in need of serious revision.

only a few hours in but seems alright

/end sarcasm

You can play the game for free for 2 days, and then an hour a day after that, if you want to try it out, download the client on the maniaplanet website.
The game deserves more players but Nadeo/Ubisoft really dropped the ball by splitting it up, and refusing to lower the prices even now. Stadium is active, Canyon is a bit less active, but you won't find an active community on Valley.

Canyon is an arcade racer that consist of tracks that are somewhere between 20-30 seconds. You meet up online (or you can play against yourself) and everyone competes for the best time on each track. It's all about nailing those perfect drifts and jumps so you can shave milliseconds of your time. You can instantly restart at the push of a button.
It's a very simple premise, but it's is insanely addicting. Tracks are short and easy to learn, but difficult to master. You need to cut each turn perfectly to win against other people online.

You'll be saying to yourself: "Just 5 more minutes, I'll quit after the next track." And two hours later you're still playing. Highly recommended.

Game needs more discounts/lower price to entice gamers to try this fantastic game, which has been around for quite some years now.
Has a fantastic community that is limited in numbers.

Come on trackmania guys, throw me some decent discounts and ill buy/gift to a bunch of friends.

Overall 8.5/10, would recommend to anyone, of any age, and runs on even the slowest of gaming PC's.

okay get this: it's like trackmania2 stadium but with cars

and they drift a lot more and it's really fun

only downside is that the physics for loops/wallrides is a bit wonky

please play this with me

For a full in-depth review of the whole TrackMania 2 series, take a look at my TM2: Stadium review.

  • The best competitive racing experience you'll ever get.
  • Canyon physics results in that sweet, sweet drift.
  • Great level editor, as well as built-in replay editor.
  • Really diverse mapping/modding scene.
  • Lightweight, smooth graphics.

  • Will break your Backspace key.
  • The whole ManiaPlanet system has always been awkward in of itself, still is now.
  • Community seems to be dead as of late.

Best racing game I had ever the pleasure to play. I could easily spend hours playing Trackmania. So many tracks, so many car skins, so many players and so much fun! Keep up the good work Nadeo.

I am still amazed by the graphics and the gameplay is fast and addicting. I can understand some complaints on the harder tracks being too narrow / slippery & dangerous. Personally, I like the challenge of hitting turns and jumps at the right speed and angle... but going at max speed down a very narrow piece of road, hitting something on the side, and having your car go flying off the track... not as fun. Still, I am finding the tracks a fun challenge as I slowly work through them.
