Nice review. :thumbsup: Liked this part in particular:
Replayability:

These games have unlimited content. New tracks get made every day since 2003. Clans rise and fall in the community for it. In the ashes of the fallen, we still have sometimes hundreds of tracks that created racing legends. Let’s just say that lately I’ve been playing Dirt 2 and I’ve been looking forward to beating it so that I can go back to playing Trackmania a game I have literally logged over 1000 hours for.

That's not a review, that's fanboyish advertisement formatted like a review. I already cringed at the first sentence - the most played racing game in the history of PC gaming, what the hell? I doubt you have any sources for that, since it's so far from the truth.

Also, your own history with the game in a "review"? Also it didn't come out internationally in 2003 so I doubt you played it then, everyone always claims they started much earlier than they did anyway. Besides, painting your car was only introduced in 2005.

I hope its a joke :mrgreen:

Definition of review: To write or give a critical report on.
As far as i read he covered many, if not all the areas of the game. Its no official review or anything [obviously] but it is still a review and not a "fanboyish advertisement" as you would say. Unless you can find a different word for this...

...maybe a more basic question we should ask is: what and how would you know what a review is?

I mean - "Free books"? "MMO Gold Guides"? "UK Website Reviews"? "Phone Lookup"? WTF?

Someone **** the bed this morning...or had their period. What's got you set off, Zooz? You've just gradually been becoming more and more bitter, or elitist. One of the two. Are all the wins going to your head?

It's certainly becoming that way...but he wasn't like that when I first joined--he seemed to be actually "nice". Maybe that was just because I massaged his ego at first.

Ya id agree, a review is an objective impartial look at somthing. This comes from someone who obviously loves the game just making biased opinions. Only thing i see is an "i love the game so should you mentality".

I Also agree ... Zooz may be blunt but he was right technicaly.

However anything that "flouts" TM and spreads the word to help us have an ongoing and friendly community is a good thing ....Review or not - Nice to see another loves TM as much :thumbsup:
