The Good – Fun, Addicting, challenging, tons of content, FREE
The Bad – Hard, sometimes frustrating, some tracks are not for beginners
Well, first of all, to start off with, Trackmania Nations Forever(TMNF) is free. While most of us may think free is good, not always are free games well polished as ones you would buy. In TMNF, after downloading it, you’d think you paid for it since, just the menu alone has a pretty nice feeling/cool factor to it. But obviously, no one plays a game to go “oh pretty menu, I love it!!”. So with that said, I’ll talk about the actual gameplay and other important features.
This game has Single and Online modes, single player mode is called Solo, and there, you have 65 tracks to go through. Although, in order to play all 65 tracks, you have to unlock them by either getting Gold medals, or other requirements such as Ladder points which can be obtained while playing Online. There is a possibility of getting 4 medals each track, Bronze, Silver, Gold, and the more harder one, the Author medal. So this means a total of 260 medals can be officially obtained in Solo mode. The tracks do start out nice and easy, but as you keep going they become more challenging and some may even become frustrating. However, this is what can make the game addicting, as your always finding ways to improve your times, thus, allowing you to get more medals.
