RealGamer has posted their review of Trackmania, giving it a 6.2 out of 10.
"So, the formula stands true. It has to be said, however, that were it not for the internet, Trackmania would be bargain bin-bound, feeling, as it does, like a cheap game. There is also a very pertinent problem regarding the suitability of the genre to the PC, on a more general level. A group of three or four close friends huddled round a fourteen inch portable television, battling away on a game such as this could while away many a joyful hour. The physical separation of human opponents makes every multiplayer contest a little less worthwhile, whilst the one-player game’s mission to collect track parts seems pointless if you then cannot share the resulting new tracks easily with close friends."
