Based on Trackmania 1, which is a god damn awesome game, I bought this trackmania 2 game. Believe me it is so brain dead, linear and straight-forward. Like trackmania 1, I was expecting 'types' like STUNT where u earn points to win, PLATFORM where least deaths are considered. Looks like those methods go down the drain. Actually I see many games on steam based or inspired on Trackmania 1, and nadeo went with Race and Time Attack only 2 modes in effin trackmania. This game also taught me to listen to the reviews and not buy the game blindly. Disappointed!

This game blows.. Looks really sweet and the graphics are nice and what would be a great game is crippled by the horrible controls.. If you plan on using an Xbox / XB1 controller or probably any other sort of controller with this game good luck. Just skip it because theres not way to properly configure a controlller.. If you plan on using a keyboard then go right ahead... but who wan'ts to play a racing game on a keyboard??

Really mad I didn't return this the day I bought it. Waste of money.

Near impossible menu navigation and terrible UI for a controller, no A.I in single player but only ghosts. Closest mulitiplayer server I could find that had players was another continent away with over 300 ping.

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.

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.

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.

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

Simple to play, incredibly difficult to master... Just like the original Trackmania game. Insanely warped tracks have always been the main selling point for Trackmania and this continues that trend big time. Some tracks can get extremely frustrating as one small mistake and you crash out with no hope of improving your previous time. If you can bear the frustration, this game is a blast!

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.
