Summary: Sometimes I can't race some of the tracks I made and sometimes I can. I can't figure out why... Ad I know it's not user error because some tracks which I used to be able use, I can't now. Otherwise, it's fun.
Summary: There are several types of racing in today's videogames. In some of them you are trying to beat other cars by trying to go ahead of them (like Motorhead), by firing at them (Hi-Octane), or by defeating road conditions (Colin Mc Rae series). Trackmania is unlike any of them. It is about defeating the clock. Other cars are just ghost cars you can't collide with and you can't block them to win the race.
Summary: If you like building courses and sharing them with friends, this game is perfect! It's a bargain too!! However, its one flaw aside from frustratingly fun levels is that there is a bug that temporarily freezes the Wii when building castle-type or great wall-type tracks. Aside from that, best Wii Game Ever!!
Summary: 6 different track types with 6 different kinds of cars. Most tracks are point A to point B and last only 10s of seconds. Most tracks have features like jumps, accelarator, obstacles, etc. You can race alone or against computer opponents to earn medals and coins. As you move through the tracks you can unlock new tracks. You can race against an opponet in split screen. There are puzzle tracks that you can complete and then race.
Summary: I am only just starting out with this game, but it's highly addictive and quite a rush! I'm a fan of the PC version, and this doesn't disappoint. On a strange note, as shipped to me, this product is in English (not French, as displayed here). If the language issue was holding you back, fear not! The French description here is also confusing: it describes this product as a game for the DS, which it isn't.
Summary: Trackmania is not about realism, it is about fun. This is an old game, given a new breath of live on the wii. The graphics for the game are spot on and I would say better than some other big name racing games. The game is difficult, with courses needing to be driven exactly correctly if you want gold ratings. With the track editor included, this amounts to a solid playing experience, with loads of replay enjoyment and not a 5 hours and it's all over.
Summary: Pretty faithful to the original game. More than enough variety of tracks (6 types of tracks). The solo career is ok, the multiplayer is fun. Track construction might be fun, if you'd care to spend the time to master it. Considering the graphics limitations of the Wii console, this game provides considerable fun. In short, not the wii typical kind of game, but truly interesting for the TrackMania community.
Summary: Having played this on the PC, I was chuffed to find it for the Wii. The game is top fun and moves at a lightning pace. The graphics are great and just add to the feeling of intense speed. The controls take a bit of practise but are worth the effort. I would recommend not using the Wii wheel option as it is near impossible to control the car with. Overall a great game which goes to show that the Wii is more than capable of running a top racing game.
Summary: So sehr ich realistische Rennspiele hasse, mag ich ihre unrealistischen Verwandten. Eines der besten Spiele dieser Art ist TrackMania, das spätestens seit der kostenlosen Variante „TrackMania Nations Forever“ weltweit bekannt ist. Trotz des großen Erfolgs erschienen bisher nur Ableger für PC und den Nintendo DS, was sich im Oktober dieses Jahres mit einer Version für die Wii änderte. Alles beim Alten Auch auf der Wii enthält TrackMania alle seine altbewährten Zutaten.
