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.

absolute favourite! First thought 'it's just a simple racing game'. But after discovering the multiplayer part, all has changed. Great tracks, great extras for your car (skins, or models too). And of course the main part: great competition by the players.

The reason I bought this game is because this website, GaiKai, had a streaming service which would let you play demo's of the most popular releases in your browser. Kind of like NVidia streaming. I used to play this game every time our class went to the computer lab, like the naughty kid I am. Maybe this review will be kind of biased by my nostalgic feelings, or maybe it'll be biased the complete opposite direction, because I dispise the early years of my middle school. Enough about that, now about the game.

TrackMania is basically a take on Mario Kart's Time Trial system. No other racers on the road, just you, your ghosts and the ghosts of whoever you downloaded. Get to the end as fast as possible. Unlike Mario Kart, however, you can do barrel rolls, ride on walls, jump ridiculous heights and all kinds of stuff like that.

//NOTE: I know Mario Kart 8 fixed the whole wall-riding stuff. You get my point. MKWii didn't have this guff.

So, what about the game itself?

Positive
  • This game is absolutely gorgeous
    This game is amazingly well-looking, even in resolutions as high as 2560*1440, this game really looks amazing. Maybe the quick racing-thing blurs my vision of the textures and shadows, but if it makes you feel like it looks okay, it's all right, isn't it?
  • The game has an excellent difficulty ramp-up
    Among other racing games that are either way too easy (Burnout paradise) or games that make me want to rip my hair out (F-Zero GX), I feel like TrackMania (not just Canyon, the entire series) have done an astounding job at making the buildup enjoyable for everyone. The higher flags being the easiest, and the black flag being the very hardest.
  • The track unlocking system is not annoying
    Any game that has a track unlocking system always gives me this sense of "Why the hell do you have this?". Even in, yes this game again, Mario Kart, I find it frustrating that I can only select the first two cups and have to beat the squishiest AI in existence to go on to the next four tracks. In TrackMania, Silver feels rewarding from time to time, and unlocking those tracks is a challenge. It's not a chore, but it's also certainly not something that takes hours of effort. It's not like you'll feel happy about unlocking those next tracks, but you will be curious as of what will be next in the line.

Negatives
I really only have one bad thing to say about this game.
  • The value of this game isn't as good as Nations Forever.
    What do I mean with this? Basically, €20,- for this game is absolutely wonderful. I'd be glad to dish out €45,- for each of the Trackmania games (but seriously, Gabe, do not raise the prices). The issue is, there is not a massive amount of difference between this and Nations Forever, and that game is free. This game is marginally better, but I don't think it can outvalue its free counterpart. This is especially the case for players with a not as strong computer, as those will have a hard time running this game on decent settings, whereas Nations Forever has run on every computer I threw at it (with the exception of one with a soldered on graphics chip. It had 128 MB Vram, go figure).

Overall, this game is excellent. Don't let the negative factor stop you from buying it, at all. If I had to rate this game, I'd give it a 9.8 / 10.

With tax calculations it'd be a 10/10.

You race against you replays and Other peoples Replays on both Normal Tracks and Insane off the wall tracks. has a paint editor and a great track editor. it seems the workshop has a pretty decent amount of stuff and is still active. Lots of fun and has endless replay value.

well, Trackmania² Canyon is my favorite of the series. i love the speed, the crazy tracks and especially the fullspeed maps with lovely autodrifts.
like always, hunting world records is one of the biggest parts of the game.
the only negative aspect is, that the community is much smaller than it was in titles like nations.
but still there are enough good drivers, to compete with.
Canyon is definetely my favorite game on steam until now.
it's fast. it's hard. it's fun.

Stadium is better IMO because it has more population, more community generated content, and more persistent playerbase than this game.

Racing gameplay here is largely based on drifting. Note that car acceleration is very high, but handling and grip is poor; you literally glide across the road like wet soap on ceramic.

This was the first of the TM2 series, and its also the least polished. Other games fully exploit the features and such that Trackmania 2 has available.

Note that environments are canyons, dirt roads, and sand. That's it. There isn't much concrete or manmade aesthetic blocks you can use to create custom, beautiful environments. As such, its a bit harder to create custom maps for this game.

However, this game is beautiful and its fun to play. It comes 3rd in my recommendations of the Trackmania 2 franchise.

I reccomend this game, mainly because when you play it, it's not too complex to learn, but not so simple you get bored in 5 minutes. And there's always new tracks to play, since you can download community made maps.

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.
