Addictive. Surprisingly addictive. I bought this expecting 5 hours max of gameplay. I would drive around in my car a little bit, crash into some wall, then go. Honestly, looking at the name and trailers, I wasn't really expecting a great game. I was so wrong. This game is great. The tracks, the concept, the art, even the music. Everything about this game was done right. The levels aren't repetative so you won't get lulled into a bored repetitive leveling. No, each level has its own new quirck and obviously a new track. If you are going to buy this, be prepared to start honing your keyboard driving skills because this fast-paced game will require skill. But skill that you won't mind training for because it is such a fun game.

This game is pretty ridiculous. It's like the company asked a bunch of 4th graders to come up with ideas for a racing game, and this is the result. Wall rides, loops, huge jumps, crazy speed. It's awesome.

That being said, the skill cap is infinitely high. Yes, it's massively fun to go on a server and smash through a bunch of new tracks, crashing all over the place and hitting walls like they owe you money. And it's worth mentioning that since the multiplayer is almost exclusively user-created levels, there are tens of thousands of maps to play. But once you settle in to a server and have learned the maps, then it becomes a wonderfully technical game about shaving off bits of time where you can.

A notable game mechanic, for those unaware, is that in time attack mode (probably the most popular game type, that and Rounds) you can reset to the beginning of the track (or the last checkpoint) at any time. This is a bit of departure from many other racing games. You'll just have a set amount of time (usually 5 to 7 minutes), to get a single best run possible. This makes it so that you never have to waste time finishing a run when you've already messed up, you can just reset and start fresh immediately. Makes for a much more efficient practice regimen, and resulting rate of improvement.

There are three environments within TrackMania 2 (Stadium, Valley, Canyon), but within each environment is an abundance of variety in itself. Since this review is Stadium, I'll focus on that briefly:
-Track materials: Pavement, Dirt, Grass, Water
-Game Modes: Time Attack, Rounds. Probably others, but rarely used. RPG, I suppose.
-Track Types: FullSpeed (because braking is for losers), Tech (because fullspeed is for neanderthals), Dirt (because you are full of self-loathing), Speedtech (Because you're a well-balanced individual with many friends and a winning smile).

Seriously, the infinite permutations of tracks alone makes this game worth it.
The End

Trackmania 2 Stadium is a casual arcade racing game,like the Trackmania 1 series before it,it has a massive online following of players and modders,online leaderboards for country and region and an unlimited amount of tracks to race on,Trackmania 2 series is more of an updated version of the original game with a new graphics and sound engine,a more streamlined interface geared towards simplified ingame downloadable content and trying to combine the other expansions of the trackmania series together.

The old Trackmania games could be purchased as several different themes,sunshine,nations,united and forever,these were separate games with the same racing only set in different locals and racing car types,like F1 rally,exotic.There are also a few other versions on the game that combined everything together as one purchase called united nations.The original is old,it's pricing structure and layout was a mess but the game was very good in it's own right however it would never be recommended over the Trackmania 2 series these days.

Trackmania 2,so for the new updated game,it has now been split into three games,Stadium,Canyon and Valley -F1-STOCK-RALLY each of these games have their own locale and racing style,each of these games are superb in their own way and now these three games are tied together with the new menu system.The gameplay is very arcade,these games use for example the rally theme in a very loose sense to make up the look and sound of the game but overall,all three games are of the Trackmania style of gameplay,a gameplay all on it's own.

Gameplay consists of racing without racing !,you racing on the games tracks or the user created tracks that can resemble something from FZero or Micromachines or Hotwheels,you race simply for the race record and you race against your own and everyone else's ghost car,when you play online you are also racing against online players ghost cars,they are playing in real time but you can't crash into them as there is no collision,if there were collision then the game would simply not work as you can be racing along side as many as 400 other players at the same time of any given track !

This is a very casual pick up and play,have fun and turn off again game but it's also a very skillful game,also a very exciting game that looks and sounds great to boot,it doesn't matter what version of the game you buy,stadium canyon and valley all offer the same level of skill and fun.

So I would recommend everyone play this game,it's the PC racing game that everyone should own a copy of,I will break down the differences of each of the three games in preference as my opinion below.

Trackmania Stadium -You can't go wrong with stadium as it's the base game,the original and the best
Trackmania Canyon -The weakest of the three but it's really really fun,as good as the others but just not the best
Trackmania Valley - the best looking of the three as it's engine was tweaked as the locale has more going on,more detail

I would always recommend Stadium as the starting game,it's the cheapest of the three and the core game is there,the other two are just as good but I would say Stadium is the best of the three,with stadium you do not even need to ever play the other two games,the other two are for those who can't get enough of the Trackmania series and it's also good to change
out every now and then for something s bit different to race on.

CONS

The game like soo many others are not without problems,many bugs have already been sorted but I found the Trackmania series in particular to have some very backwards design ideas/flaws,for the most part this game and it's expansions will run 60fps+ on the very high graphical settings,some settings still slow it down like motionblur but thankfully you can turn all details from off,low,med,high,the vsync options are not very well explained as there are six options for vsync as well as triple buffering and first time users won't know the correct/best setup,I will say now that you should use vsync,also use every third frame (not constant frame) and also use triple buffer and this should give you a proper 60fps,water shader detail for medium pc's should be med or low,and motion blur would be recommended as off,there are many other options in the start up menu and you should take the time in setting these up,resolution is very important in this game,i found that lower resolutions are fine but you really miss the graphical details so I would recommend you aim for 1080,full frame rate with vsync options and then turn up other details to see what you can get away with.

Other problems with the game are the lack of support,this game is made by a French company and the forums and users are mostly EU users,there's not as many users from the uk and usa on the forums,that doesn't mean there are not many users from uk and usa playing the game,just means we try to avoid the unhelpful forums as I found I didn't get anywhere when asking for help.

The game's layout,the way the game works can be quite strange as well,you earn points for scoring high,these points are called Planets ? your planets are displayed in the top bar when you are in the main menu,these Planets are then used to buy online user created content,you earn a little planets each day that you play as well,another thing that seems backward to me is the apparent new menu system that combines everything together (it doesn't actually work) after all the time this game has been out it still is broken but since an update a month ago it is now working outside of steam but the steam version is still unworking,this means that if you own two or more of the trackmania games,you need to exit out the game and start then other one up from steam ( not a big deal really)

Overall this game is amazing,be prepared to spend some time on the game,take your time and mess about in the menus and try to get used to the way the Trackmania system works,playing the game for the first time gave me the feeling of (wtf have I just bought ?) it took me a while to understand the games charm,I was expecting far too much from the game and when I couldn't really GET the concept of the game along with the many problems I faced in trying to find out what Planets are and why my planets would disappear without buying content or sometimes I would buy content and lose my planets but not receive my item,I found it very hard in finding the answers on google or the mania forums,little things like this can really put you off a strange game and concept like this one,but give it a go and you will find it hard not to fall in love with this game,it's a classic.

This game will yield hours and hours of fun. I shouldn't be so quick to call it a game though; It's more of a sport. There are few controls other than stop, go, turn, and restart, but don't think for a second that there is no room for improvement. The game engine catches every slight turn of the wheel for split second victories or defeats. The community is great too; there are countless custom tracks that refuse to let this game become stale.

WELL worth the price.

One of THE best racing games out there.
easy to learn, hard to master. Extremely competitive.
Has a nice social flow to it, Online experience is nice, not a lot of bad people i came across.
The editor is stunning, you can do whatever you want and make whatever you want.
again here, easy to learn, hard to master.
For example, you can make a track and be done. OR, You make a track, give it a nice touch with ellements to dress it up a little.
THEN you make a custom replay with the (Simple to learn hard to master) video editor. you can make custom intros, custom effects in races, custom replays, custom stage cam's and even ambiance.
There is even a interface creator!
You can do all this, Ofcourse, After you painted and dowloaded your own personal vehicle!
truly a game for the real racers and creative ones with us.

I'm writing this review while giggling, because TrackMania² Stadium absolutely is the most competitive but absurd racing game ever! It gives middle finger to all rules that made by other racing game before, and build its own mechanism. You can imagine this is like a qualification session in F1: the track is yours alone, others are ghost, we all try to score the fastest time and the result get displayed when the racing time is due (around 4-5 minutes), winners get podium and some points to raise level, loser stands behind, and we go to the next track. No parts to unlock, no coin to buy, no secret move, no NOS, everybody got the same engine, same car, same speed.

So what makes this game stand out?

There's a lot of wacky track created by a maniac in multiplayer mode. Sometimes it's so absurd that maybe just around 1-2 people able to finish it, the rests are struggling, "Where should I go?! Where should I go?!" There's a lot of fliptable and WTH moments when you accelerate your car very fast and laughing the next second because the track is just disappear into nowhere. Most of the tracks, even absurd, is doable. But it's pretty normal to hear people cursing the track maker because the sensation of getting trolled is high here.

Competitive racer will get satisfaction from scoring the fastest time, while the more casual racer will get fun and hilarious time from able to defeat those absurd tracks. Everybody got their own share of pie, enjoy!

Who played TMN since its releasing (i believe it was in 2007?) will always be addicted to it. I've played that from 2008, and continuously get TMNF and TM2S. Fun as it always was :)

It's the Stadium environment everybody loves, adapted to work in the Trackmania 2 engine, so everything looks and sounds way nicer! Like, surprisingly so! For a game so simple, a lot of attention was paid to subtle sound and visual cues that really give the Stadium cars a realistic feel to them, even though technically very little about them was changed over the previous Trackmania game.

The game comes with Steam Workshop support, but Stadium 2's short time on earth hasn't been kind to it. A lot of what I tried from the Workshop just plain doesn't work anymore. More than half the cars I downloaded give me an "OldGeometry" error when I try to load them, suggesting they're either for an older version of Trackmania 2, or were uploaded for the wrong game entirely.

But yeah, it's more Trackmania Stadium, aka the best time trial/stunt racing game ever! That's great! But... it *could* be better.

where do i start i use to play tm1 and loved it it was easy simple but this they had to update parts for no reason, some of it is fine like the new slightly underground parts also i love how dark it goes but the otherday i made a track and it worked fine other than the fact it took about and hour to compile shadows but today i go to make a track and before the editor could even load the game crashed evertime so i had to delete the game and restart it also for some reason my server list page keeps changing from the old to the new style and i know this has nothing to do with nadeo but why is every server filled with crap tracks made by 6 year olds, tracks use to be decent and now some ♥♥♥♥♥ decide that there track needs to have extra track when you wont even get close to that peice of track all in all i think people should just go back to tm1 much more reliable than this garbage and before anyone says oh hes just ranting trust i had full intentions of liking this game to the point where i purchased the game before i played the demo.

This game is perfect. The graphics, the map editor, and most importantly the community. If you like technical driving this is the game for you. Every run is different. Hit a wall? Restart. Everything has to be perfect for the best time. Some bugs make the game better and allow for more freedom in mapmaking.

Pros:
Fun driving
great community
great map editor
unique approach to racing game

Cons:
Menus can be a little annoying, do not support controllers.
Weird input bugs that require restart can happen from time to time.
Occasional crashes.

9/10

Its not your average racer....Its not like Forza, Nascar, or Mario Cart. Its a unique twist where people race to get the best time! With a easymap editor and simplistic controls makes this game a easy pick up but difficult to master.
