Trackmania Turbo is a stunt based car racing game that is being released for consoles and PC.
Pro Simple in nature
The looks as well as the gameplay may bee seen as a bit simple, but this all plays into the core of the game as it is designed to do one thing and one thing well, race time trials. So while it does not feature over complex customization or graphical effects, its track design and overall fun of play is what makes the whole game stand out. The point of the game is easy to grasp that anyone will understand how to play, of course this does not mean the game is easy, the difficulty is quite challenging, which just adds to the charm and overall appeal.
Pro Crisp and clean visuals
The graphics have a very arcade feel to them, but do stand out as well done. The colors are bright and the tracks each have their own look thanks to the locales they are placed in. The whole game will run easily at 60fps no matter the platform, which helps to keep things looking sharp thanks to no dips in the framerate. Overall this is a slick looking racer.
Con No personal servers for PC
This means that online games will be dependent on the developers servers. There will be no way for users to create their own servers that can house their own rules or tracks. Earlier releases allowed for this and it does seem that the console release has held the game back in this regard as dedicated servers are how the consoles work as well.
Con Very difficult
This is a time trial game and it shows, players will need to reset after reset each course in order to learn the track to get the best times. One mistake and that record is gone. Only pure perfection succeeds here. Some may enjoy this type of challenge, other though will most likely get frustrated.
