Trackmania Sunrise takes everything that made the original an instant online classic ? amazing speed, ultra competitive multiplayer races and easily accessible tools to create and distribute outrageous tracks ? and still manages to add more and more. New sports cars that burn up the highways at a breathtaking 400kph as they tear around gorgeous new environments including the beauty of the Pacific Coast. The most insane stunt blocks ever, send perilous track building to a whole new level with sweeping bends, winding tunnels and ramps designed to send you soaring. Two new play modes ? Platform and Crazy ? mean that even the most experienced of trackmaniacs will face a totally fresh racing experience. A new day has dawned? are you up for the challenge? [Digital Jesters] Expand

  1. Unlike most such games Sunrise is packed full of features and what you get with it--besides a unique solo experience--are tools to effortlessly create custom content and share it and enjoy it together with everyone else. It is less than a year old and the community has already made an incredible amount of tracks and vehicles, and Nadeo released a free expansion pack.
  2. If you enjoy zipping Hot Wheels through loops and off your front porch, TrackMania is an essential selection as it's one of the best PC games of 2005.

    A deceptively simple game, one of those classics that you can instantly pick up and play but which colludes with the pleasure seeking part of your brain into compelling you to keep on playing until you master all its little nuances.
  4. If you are a speed freak who likes a serious single player challenge, you absolutely should check out this game for its solo modes. They are unlike anything found in a PC racing title to date, and will provide you with hours of high octane thrills and spills.
  5. The best inclusion is a compulsive Platform mode requiring death-defying leaps. Trial and error repetition can frustrate but improving your scores by performing perfect jumps is addictive.
  6. Truly a different game, and it’s different enough to warrant a spot in your collection.
  7. A middling offering. What it offers in great visuals, it loses in making those visuals static.

    Tm Sunrise is superb! If you havent played it get the demo for a sample. Its basically a mix of burnout 3 speed and the fun of the old Tm Sunrise is superb! If you havent played it get the demo for a sample. Its basically a mix of burnout 3 speed and the fun of the old classic Stunt Car racer.

    Sumptuous graphical style, brilliantly tuned arcade racing, and some truly unique gameplay modes. Nadeo really hit the nail on the head with Sumptuous graphical style, brilliantly tuned arcade racing, and some truly unique gameplay modes. Nadeo really hit the nail on the head with this one (and managed it again with their *free* follow up, Trackmania Nations). Sheer, unadulterated fun as both a single- and multi-player experience, and easily the most addictive experience I've had in years. Expand
