    TrackMania 2 Stadium is the comeback of the Stadium environment enjoyed by millions of players with TrackMania Nations Forever, this time as part of the ManiaPlanet environment allowing for improved services around the game, better graphics and powerful track editor.

    TrackMania 2 Stadium is a whacky, crazy and fast paced take on the racer genre. Easy to get in thanks to a very pure gameplay, Stadium's depth made it an eSports favorite for years, and brings the creative gamers to the mix thanks to its extensive level editor.

    With Stadium, TrackMania 2 still holds true to the core tenets of the series, catering first and foremost to those, who'd do everything to shave that elusive hundredth off their time to beat the competition.At only 10 Euros, it's also a great place to start, if this games sounds like your kind of deal and you haven't gotten around to trying the series out.

    With 65 tracks, a powerful editor, a promising online multiplayer and an affordable price, TrackMania 2: Stadium puts on the table several good reasons to buy.

    Taken as a whole, Stadium presents the best Trackmania 2 experience. It offers every feature found in last year’s Canyon and for half the price. More importantly, Stadium has adopted the bulk of the community, so new players would be advised to choose this better, cheaper option.

    You can still fall in love with Trackmania 2, but these are not Pokemons and you don’t need to catch ‘em all. If there are still some tracks for you to master in Canyon, you don’t have to buy Stadium. [CD-Action 09/2013, p.64]

    Nothing really new under the sun of TrackMania 2, just an artificial Stadium of arcade precision and a natural Valley of dirty driving. After Canyon, two extra physical environments and different driving styles to race offline and online.

Forget the single player campaign, it's about multiplayer and its thousands of user built tracks and servers with 50 people on it playing crazy maps.

    The game's low user score indicates that it is a divisive niche game: either you like full contact racing or single player (in which case avoid this like the plague) or you want a track editor or a lively multiplayer community (what are you waiting for?).

    There is one issue: it is essentially a HD remake of the old Trackmania Nations, which was (and still is) free. However, $10 is NOT too much for this game. Many people have played Nations for years it really is that deep if you're into what it offers.

    The other issue is that developers Nadeo have lost their marbles and are trying to push their horrible Maniaplanet platform which forces you to download patches for games you don't own and makes it all too obvious that every -mania title is the exact same game with a different car (or robots with guns in the case of Shootmania) and different tileset..

    For good or bad, Nadeo are a unique studio, but objectively speaking this is an amazing game. Didn't we all wish we could climb into our slot cars as a child and drive them around wacky tracks with loops and compete against tens of other drivers? Here's a version for grown ups. Enjoy!

    Since the dawn of Trackmania there hasn't been another arcade racer that comes close to the likelihood of it.
    Trackmania 2 is just as awesome
    Since the dawn of Trackmania there hasn't been another arcade racer that comes close to the likelihood of it.
    Trackmania 2 is just as awesome as the original Trackmania was with somewhat improved graphics. Why only somewhat you may ask? Well, it is very easy! Trackmania has its very own graphics style which was a massive success when it launched and still is a massive success. This leaves not much playroom for the developers to upgrade it looks-wise besides upgrading the textures and bumping up the supported resolution to basically what ever you want.
    The community is just as friendly, helpful, funny, big and supportive of the game as i remember it from the original.
    Now if you want to know what the Gameplay feels like i can only recommend you to download Trackmania for free via a google search and give it a try as it is free to play. If you then decide that you like the game either continue playing the F2P version or throw in about 5-10 bucks and enjoy the full version which lets you play without a timeout after 5 online races.
    I highly recommend this game as it gives you many many hours of fun Gameplay.

    In my opinion, Trackmania 2 Stadium is very underestimated, splitting Trackmania into three parts might not have been the best idea but IIn my opinion, Trackmania 2 Stadium is very underestimated, splitting Trackmania into three parts might not have been the best idea but I really like Trackmania 2 Stadium. The singleplayer isn't really interesting but the multiplayer really kicks things off. Find yourself a good server and you will have fun for a long time period. Expand

It's as great as the first Trackmania,I was addicted to TM Nations United, with over 500 hours played, so ofcourse i had to give this a shot. It's as great as the first Trackmania, i'm just a little sad that they pretty much only added 1 new trackoption (made it possible to build under the ground), and made new single-player tracks. There's also some few changes here and there, but these are the only major changes i've seen.
    They also seperated the worlds, so you need to spend more money if you want all the worlds. Not that i should really care, since i only play Stadium. I just feel like they've gotten more greedy and a little lazy, which i think is pretty sad.
    But afterall, this is still a great Trackmania game, so i had to give it 7 out of 10!

    A giant step backwards from the original Trackmania game. Although TM2 features better graphics, the gameplay has gotten worse. Where in theA giant step backwards from the original Trackmania game. Although TM2 features better graphics, the gameplay has gotten worse. Where in the first game, you could see your ratings go up beginning with the comletion of the very first race, this game requires you to gain gold medals to qualify for rated single-player time attack racers, which can only be repeated every five minutes (even for tracks that take only 10 seconds). Multi-player races are as meaningless as ever, with zero collision detection and staggered starts. And the new engine won't show your horns or custom paint to other players unless they've tweaked their firewalls it's awkward and antiquated. This is a very poor quality racer. Expand
