For anyone unfamiliar with Trackmania, here's a quick overview:
- Tracks are built out of prefab pieces, kinda like lego (but obviously with race track shapes instead of rectangles).
- Cars cannot collide with other cars. You cannot run other players off the road in this game.
- In multiplayer, you're in a simultaneous time-trial competition with the other players, but sometimes there are other goals... such as simply being able to finish a very difficult track or a specially crafted stunt-oriented track at all.
Generally speaking, this is a game for perfectionists, speed seekers, and stunt lovers.
The main benefit of this game over other racing games is that you can jump into an already-running multiplayer server at random, encounter new tracks that you've never seen before as well as ones you've mastered, and have people to compete with, pretty much any time you want.
