    A fun, different racing game. The gameplay is fast and addicting and there's a lot to do. It does get frustratingly difficult, and I wish it looked better, but it's still a game that racing fans should check out.

    This huge, time trial-based driving game is let down by budget production values and frustrating difficulty spikes.

    In short, it takes having fun extremely seriously. As long as you've got the patience to handle it, you'll find that's no bad thing.

    I have no idea what the development budget was for Trackmania Wii, but with more resources it could have easily been the most impressive racer on the platform. As it is, it's hugely addictive, but also terribly sloppy. The final game should have been much better.

    It needed a lot more fine tuning to work properly on the Wii, but almost by default this still becomes one of the best racers on Nintendo's home console.

    This Wii edition of TrackMania focused on being faithful to TrackMania, even if it meant being outdated visually speaking and too cautious.

    If you haven't gotten the PC version, you'll find a good racing game for your Wii.

    Mixed" Critic REVIEWS of this game are laughably bad. Any difficulty spike can be skipped or appreciated as a challenge! Others call it theMixed" Critic REVIEWS of this game are laughably bad. Any difficulty spike can be skipped or appreciated as a challenge! Others call it the best on the system but give it a 6-7, which speaks more to their attitude toward the system than this game. ACTION: diversity of track types, modes, vehicles, and the Excitebikeriffic track editor mean this game will continue to entertain for a long time. CONTROLS: Dpad and Wii Wheel both work well. Sometimes the controls feel a little tight but with ever increasing difficulty of tacks this becomes a welcome problem. EXCITEBIKERIFFIC: Ignoring for a moment the Wiiware remake, playing Trackmania reminds me of the original NES Excitebike more than any other game I can think of. Quick and deceptively simple tracks along with the editor are nostalgia gold. The music is almost as catchy too Full Review »
