  • Summary: A cutting edge blend of arcade, SIM and puzzle games, TrackMania is set to be the first in a new and unique genre of racing game that will truly bring the game back in to gameplay. Using the simple and intuitive editor, players can let their imaginations run wild and build their own crazy tracks, modifying them block-by-block, to create complex and spectacular tracks. Then, when the tracks are completed, players can test their creations in real-time, and experience all the fun and excitement of high-speed racing. [Nadeo] Expand

  1. Whether you are looking for a quality arcade race experience, challenging puzzles, an in-depth racetrack design tool, or all of the above, TrackMania is one game you won’t want to miss out on.
  2. Despite the game’s flaws – and it does have them – track building and racing is surprisingly fun and addictive. You might find yourself hooked. I was.
  3. A real shot in the arm for what is becoming a dull genre.
  4. TrackMania isn't a hugely polished game, but it's a breath of fresh air to play a game with a half-original concept. It feels (and, critics might add, looks) like the games of my youth (and so the rest of the team's middle-age), when originality sold as much as generic graphical kiss-kiss-bang-bang. [PC Zone]
  5. Refreshingly, cheating is often the best way to go. [Sept 2004, p.70]
  6. Worth a look if you fancy some Rollercoaster Tycoon-style construction fun, with four-wheel time challenges thrown in for good measure.
  7. What's worse than a mediocre piece of shareware? Answer: a $30 retail game that looks and plays like a mediocre piece of sharware. [Oct 2004, p.81]
