Default TrackMania 2 - Anyone got it?

This looks INSANELY fun! $25! The course editor alone I could spend endless hours on. It's like... my youth filled with legs and hot wheels courses brought to as real life as possible.

This is the only time that arcade driving physics is acceptable btw.

Edit: and the graphics look absolutely STUNNING for something that isn't some big high budget AAA racing title.

Yes I ve got it. Its awesome. Been playing it a lot since the beta come out last month.

The graphics look their best while in motion, which isn't a problem due to the nature of the game. Lol.

are the online races with 100+ cars really as insane as that "educational video" makes it look? It seems like it would be just utter chaos with bumper cars hitting each other all over the place.

Cars clip right through each other. But yes some of the tracks are that epic with the big drops and crazy hail mary jumps.

Its a game between you and the track. Its nice to beat everyone else but the goal is somehow find a way to shave off that extra second and not lose control and have to restart at the same time.

Sorry to hear you don't have your legs anymore. At least you can hit the gas and brake with your fingers now and soar upwards towards bliss.

I'll get this when it goes to bargain bin, as every Trackmania game is pretty much the same, and while I'll play it alot at first, I inevitably get bored of it pretty quick.
