Trackmania Nations ESWC

CNET Editors' review

In what might be an unprecedented gaming-industry development, Nadeo has created an entirely new version of its Trackmania series for use in the Electronic Sports World Cup 2006. This completely free version of the arcade racing game gets rid of the classic settings such as the desert and city and places the entire action within the Trackmania stadium. The game includes a whopping 100 levels -30 beginner, 30 advanced, 30 expert, and 10 pro. An included level editor lets you create your own marvelous tracks with 110 building blocks, including ramps that go fully vertical. You can practice all the tracks solo or compete in time trials against up to eight players on the same machine. All the tracks also are available for Internet play against racers from around the world.

Starting a game involves creating a profile, in which you select the name and nationality of your car and driver. Sixteen nations are represented (though Germany, France, and the U.S.A. dominate numbers in online play), and if your country isn't, you can always go into Paint mode to create a car that reflects your national pride. We offer a warning for all those wishing to race for other countries: be sure you know the language, because messages will arrive in the local tongue, and you'll be placed by default into online matches against representatives of the same country, who, again, chat in their native language. Starting a LAN match against local opponents or venturing into the Internet game is quite easy, though we didn't figure out to import our own created tracks into the online play, which was part of the fun of the original Trackmania. However, for a free racing game with stellar 3D graphics and online multiplayer action, Trackmania ESWC stands head and shoulders above any competitors.

    "need an internet connection to install and play"

    December 19, 2010  |   By shari7

    Version: Trackmania Nations ESWC

    Pros

    looks like fun, however, I was not able to play it without the internet connection

    Cons

    this simple program is huge (265 MB), and to finish installing it you need an internet connection which we didnt have, so we were not able to play it

    Summary

    looks like fun but it is huge and would not install without an internet connection, not sure if you need to be connected to play. We were disappointed.

    "A TrackMania Game for FREE!?!"

    December 7, 2009  |   By nintendo_jr

    Version: Trackmania Nations ESWC

    Pros

    + The graphics are awesome, I had it up to my max, and it still ran at 60 fps on my Intel
    + It is incredibly fun, driving on walls, and doing all these crazy stunts, its amazing!
    + They remembered CANADA!!!

    Cons

    - A little more customization for the controls is all I ask for, It's great that it can use my game pad, but I want to set the buttons how I want

    Summary

    If you love racing games, or games that go really fast, you need to play this and its free so do it!

    Pros

    Realistic Physics
    Good sound
    Fun to play
    Editor

    On-line experience with get-outs rating system
    Free

    "AWESOME GRAFIXS....BUT"

    September 2, 2009  |   By cpoky2

    Version: Trackmania Nations ESWC

    Pros

    Free, GREAT GREAT GRAFIX (my computer's 6 years old and plays GREAT)

    Cons

    Looks like a awesome game, BUT, the tracks are REDICULOUS. Do a LOOP to go into a half loop, to do 180 spin in air, to hit a jump, to do a corkscrew,to...it's not so much a on-line race game as it is a "see if you could finish my un-finishable track"

    Summary

    B.L.= If you like racin against other ppl, this is not your game. You all "try" to finish a track with the best time. More like MULTI PLAYER time trials than racing. Not really impressed with anything bit the grafix.
