    The new Trackmania builds itself on the best chapter of the franchise, laying the foundations for the future of the series.

    Tremendously playable time trials with an extensive editor and a continuous supply of new challenges.

    Trackmania is everything we could expect from a 2020 installment and is as fun as it has been for 17 years. Of course, its strange subscription model may not go over well with everyone.

    The underlying principle is indestructible, but compared to its predecessors, the F2P restart disappoints with a lack of content and improvements.

    Finding a reason to pay for Trackmania subscription will be difficult, even for fans. In technical terms, the game lives up to its name and it is good to have it downloaded to spend a few minutes on the track of the day or try to improve our records, challenging users from all over the world. As for the rest of the package, it offers a service that nobody asked for and that, in the long term, will end up taking the game off the tracks.

    That new Trackmania isn't really new as it recycle most from Trackmania 2003 and Trackmania Nations, and the most revolutionary thing is it's subscription model. On the other hand, most of it is available for free, and it's still feel as great as ever.

    Apart from servers and a short campaign, the developers have not really prepared anything for the release. Most of the content of the new Trackmania is a reworking of old, and the rest is created by fans... again. In fact, Nadeo and Ubisoft only provide servers and features to meet the user's creative needs. On the other hand, this is what Trackmania has always been. However, there are still questions: how the studio will develop the game further and whether the subscription model will pay off. We haven't received any answers to them yet.

    I totally agree with the rant about the subscription model. It ruins this game unfortunately.

    Unfortunately because apart from this its a big step up from previous Stadium environments - at least for me. The handling feels more natural, the car has a new futuristic feature: reactor boost. Graphics are clean and encourage people to make clean tracks and not that usual cluster**** which was common in Stadium before. There are more abilities for mapping and editing which results in a huge amount of amazing maps with a lot custom blocks and unique appearance. (yeah you know: Midnight Metropolis and stuff like that.) The game has a new section named "track/cup of the day" where those community made maps are implemented into the game.

    The only downside i see to previous Stadium environments (apart from subscription model) are the flat surfaces - that means grass is just green, there is actually no more grass on grass. So in dark spots you cant tell the difference between grass, dirt, ice or concrete.

    Overall i again got addicted by the newest trackmania and would recommend to buy the 10€ starter pass. I don't see the benefit of the 3x more expensive club access. (With starter access you get the map editor, track of the day section and ofc you can download and play any map from TMX. Its worth the money.)

    I love Trackmania, but they should not have introduced a subscription based model!
    Stripping the basic features the predecessors had and putting them behind a yearly payment is bad practice.
    As a long time fan who bought every previous game I feel offended.
