Trackmania 2: Canyon

 

For me, it all started on my seventh birthday when I received a gift that would guide my interests for the next forty years: two Mattel Hot Wheels cars and some track to run them on. At the time, there were only a handful of cars available; it was,...

If you're looking for a high-fidelity racing sim, TrackMania isn't for you. If you're looking for a way to express yourself with custom-designed race tracks without having to invest months of effort, this is the game you're looking for!

Nadeo's Trackmania series has always been about blending arcade-style racing with crazy track design, and Trackmania 2 is no different.

There is an old saying that everybody knows, yet no-one is aware of exactly where it came from: 'If it ain't broken, don't fix it'. This saying is applied to the world of video games constantly, be it the latest Modern Warfare or Uncharted - but it's...

The later, sillier tracks that see you zipping through the air and passing through the tiniest of cracks.

TrackMania 2 Canyon Review

 

TrackMania 2: Canyon is an exciting arcade racer that fluctuates between the highly accessible and the extremely complex.

Highly compulsive score chasing ; Great visuals ; Extremely customizable ; Car handling is sublime and easy to get on with ; Tracks are meticulously designed to suit the quick-fire style

Customization options may be daunting for some ; Majority of the multiplayer modes are currently obsolete

There are no physical opponents on the track. You can choose a ghost to race against from either the preset AI ghosts, your own favourite replay, or the replay of someone on your buddies list who has set a better official time than you. Usually there...

TrackMania 2: Canyon- PC

 

TrackMania 2 is a beautiful, heart-stopping, narcotic racing game. Its readiness to just sit there as operating system furniture, idling in the background before roaring to the fore, is a credit both to its engine and its design.

Consumer review by:

TrackMania 2: Canyon- PC

 

A streamlined front-end and more clearly spelled-out progression would probably go a long way. But if you're up for digging around and find the idea of a driving game that's a little left-of-center exciting, TM2 is kind of incredible.

Consumer review by:

TrackMania 2: Canyon- PC

 

The frustration felt through repeated failures navigating the insane turns and twists of Trackmania's courses might put off some, but without the threat of failure there could be no sense of accomplishment. When you finally run a perfect line through a...

Consumer review by:

TrackMania 2: Canyon- PC

 

Aside from improved visuals and the handling changes, there's no radical departure from the TrackMania formula here. If you read that as a criticism then, well, maybe you've already overdosed on previous releases. For everyone coming fresh to the...
