    Well, I replaced it with that one, but we still need the Europe version of the pic. The one showing is the USA version pic.


    Game seems to work fine on CycloDS, BTW.

    What a nice surprise! Wasn't expecting this. Wii version is gonna rock (assuming I can find a way to play it, my HDD is dead, luckily I got a warranty [​IMG] )

    Awesome. Just completed the first few stadium tracks. Very one-more-go-ish. [​IMG]

    I was wondering if this game has DS Download Play. Anyone confirm?

    The game is great, but it has very noticeable lag at some parts, particular the Island tracks.

    Oh wow, I didn't know we were getting another Trackmania any time soon.

    If it weren't for Etrian Odyssey III and Pokemon White, I'd go out and buy this now. I guess I'll wait for a little while, though.

    The graphics are nice and it plays well enough I guess. Building your own tracks is great, as is having 100+ pre-made tracks in the game for you to play through.

    But I guess I just don't like Trackmania games in general. I like racing other opponents to win, not ghost cars for lap times. A Lack of a real "race" mode kinda puts a damper on the game for me. I don't have any A.I. cars to slam into walls or spin-out, they're just ghosts and you go right through them. AWW! [​IMG]

    I guess the problem for me is that it's designed to be a multi-player game and I'm a single-player type of guy. I don't know.....I never play multi-player mode on any game.


    I'm noticing conflicting info between sites about the Wi-Fi and number of tracks in this game. Some places are saying online Wi-Fi, others suggest the Wi-Fi is only local multiplayer......some say 100+ tracks, some say nearly 200. So what Wi-Fi modes does it really have? (I don't see any Wi-Fi logo on the boxart [​IMG] ) How many tracks? How many can you create and save? The info on this game is obscure to say the least. What are you supposed to believe? Some sites seem to have "Turbo" cross-referenced with the original Trackmania DS game, further adding to the information confusion.

    Heh, I guess you could say, "BTFG & RTFM" to find out for sure. [​IMG]

    It's one of the mysteries of mankind: Trackmania is quite popular in Central Europe (France, Germany, Switzerland) but it's almost unknown in America. Maybe that has something to do with the sort of toys that where extremly popular in Europe some years ago.

    We all love Trackmania here. Really. [​IMG]

    On the flip side, this is why a lot of people like it. It's a true race in that there's no lame last minute crash by some other guy that causes you to lose. You're competing for the best time.

    Working fine on a slightly dated firmware version on M3Real. More environments than the previous game makes it better!
