  1. It's a fun game from start to finish that has tons of racing replay value!
  2. Lots to recommend about this update of the '08 game. Shame there's not more of it though.

    I miss a story or career mode, but on the whole, TrackMania Turbo is a really cool racing-game on the Nintendo DS. Especially fans of TrackMania will have a lot of fun with this one.

    More of the same loopy entertainment but still appealing. [Issue#231, p.95]
  5. Works as well as you could hope for on the dinky DS screen. [Oct 2010, p.53]
  6. More polished and comprehensive than the previous DS installment, thanks to the adding of the online mode, TrackMania Turbo is a nice arcade racing game.

    Great racing game with stunning graphics. The physics are surprisingly nice, and you can have four opponents on screen while playing solo (bronze time, silver time, gold time, ghost car). The hot seat play is as nice as on other platforms. Unfortunately the limitations of the DS hardware show often: the track editor only allows you to use a certain number of blocks to make a raceway and the low screen resolution can get you lost on some tracks. But when you have a lot of multiplayer modes, many tracks, every inaccuracy of the cartridge can be forgiven. I can highly recommend this game to everyone! Collapse

    Even though a lot has been stripped out from Trackmania United, it still retains the core gameplay. In many tracks, though, the framerate suffers tremendously. Despite this, if you're a fan of Trackmania United and have a Nintendo DS, this is worth at least trying. Expand
