IGN releases its preview of TrackMania for Nintendo Wii™

If you want “jumps, loops and spectacular spills” then “TrackMania series is made for you”!

As this new version of TrackMania will arrive soon on Nintendo Wii™ the journalist of IGN already seems to be fond of “the hundreds of circuits and challenges” proposed by the title. He enjoyed the possibility to create the tracks of your dreams with the” incredibly extensive track creator”! He also points out the “endless assortment of courses to download and experience” thanks to the “ability to send track designs over the Nintendo Wi-Fi connection”.

IGN is sure that you will feel “glued to the track” during hours and hours in that game in which “every hundredths of a second count”.

Finally, the journalist pays tribute to the “technical prowess” of the developers who has created this game that flows “fast and smooth” and “that'll last you a long time”.

I can't believe this game has become the best multi platform multiplayer racing and track building game available...

Actually I could believe this 5 years ago, I guess some of you remember how we were still sad about how small our comunity was at that time.

This is great.

I'll be buying TM Wii even if my silly softmodded Wii won't play it.

Kudos to Nadeo for bringing the series this far. :island2

Ooh wow. I just watched the gameplay videos and I have to say it really exceeded my expectations.

The physics seem to flow really nicely even if there not exactly like the PC version, and the graphics are great.

I'm also glad to hear that it has a new soundtrack =D.

I really hope this gains popularity in the US, I hate being one of the only people who knows what TrackMania is...

lol, you should have been here in 2003 :) That was much more lonely. I mean, for french users, TrackMania was already an established national sport. But now, we also have a great international community too :)

I wonder if Wii players will be able to play online on PC servers and if not, will there be dedicated servers for Wii Trackmania?

Meh their preview was so last August...

But yeah, all publicity is good publicity. I have been around since TM day one in the UK but never got online until TMU. Would have loved to have been involved fully since the start, and I'm tempted to buy Trackmania Wii for this reason. I can't see it quite reaching the PC standards due to the limitations of the console, but the essence of Trackmania will be there for Wii owners to enjoy at last :thumbsup:

@ djbacon: It's not been confirmed or denied by Firebrand, but it's safe to say there will not be cross platform support.
