Editors' review

Based on this pre-release version, TrackMania combines racing, sim, and puzzle elements to create an extremely entertaining game. It is broken into challenges, track building, and multiplayer competition. Challenges are solo puzzles in which you must create a course from start to finish, including mandatory checkpoints, and drive it under a certain time to earn medals. You use those medals, or coppers, to purchase more parts from the catalog to create your next track. The multiplayer portion lets you compete on your track against local or online players. The full version of the game promises 300 building blocks, including ramps, jumps, and turns, but this early version has much less.

The actual racing is incredibly fun, but it is arcade-based, which may turn off those looking for realism. Driving employs the four arrow keys. Pressing the Enter key respawns your car to its last position if you go offtrack. Track building is logical and easy to learn, but camera control should be more flexible. Graphics are impressive in the driving mode, but it's the endless variety of tracks that makes the game so appealing. Already some amazing creations are online. Finally, this beta version of TrackMania has slight stability problems.
