TrackMania Nations

John Marine | 6/30/2010 11:39:00 PM | |
TrackMania Nations is Nadeo's answer to the now-defunct A1 GP. It was strictly made for multiplayer as it was a game to be played for the Electronic Sports World Cup (ESWC). The action all takes place in an environment simply known as Stadium. The car you use is the Best of all... this game is FREE! So if you want to experience TrackMania without having to pay, this blog entry will discuss this freeware TrackMania title. Later in the blog entry, I'll tell you about TrackMania Nations Forever, an enhanced version of this classic title.

--- TrackMania Nations Review and Information ---

Think of TrackMania Nations as the World Cup of TrackMania. There are a lot of nations represented in this game (about 70). Here are some of the many nationalities represented in this game: Australia, Belgium, Poland, Bahrain, Qatar, Egypt, Indonesia, Estonia, Pakistan, United Arab Emirates, Poland, Sweden, Venezuela, and Vietnam.

Along with the various cars representing various nations are a pack of hymns. Most of these hymns are basically remixes of national anthems from other countries. There are about 53 hymns of these national anthems ranging in alphabetical order from Australia to Venezuela. Here is a short list of national anthems featured in TrackMania Nations: Australia, Brazil, Canada, Denmark, Greece, Israel, Italy, Japan, Korea Republic, Mexico, Mongolia, Netherlands,

Everything you love about the TrackMania series is exemplified in this game. Enjoy painting your car and of course, creating your own tracks to share with others. This game has it all. The only problem I have with it is that I wish it had better support for 3D cars other than any nVidia card. I can't even do a single Benchmark test for the game without my PC crashing and rebooting. And unless you want to race in other environments, you're better off getting TrackMania United Forever, which includes the Stadium environment and the stadium car.



--- In Case You're Wondering... ---

There are 69 nations represented in TrackMania Nations. Of these 69, 51 of them have national anthem hymns. Here are all the nations represented in TrackMania Nations. If you see "--- hymn included ---" by the name of the represented country, it means that the nation in question has its National Anthem hymn included.
