Summary



Racing games today aim for realism and providing an authentic experience above all else. TrackMania Turbo defies these expectations and instead, introduces a gameplay experience is outlandish and out of this world. But nevertheless, it’s extremely fun. The racetracks are far from those you see on Gran Turismo or even Need for Speed. With ramps that allow you to seemingly jump into the sky and loops that seem endless, you’re in for real adrenaline-fueled treat. Being part of April 2018’s PlayStation Plus lineup alongside Mad Max (which is also a game geared towards driving), is it something you need to download? Let’s find out if it should be a priority on your backlog.

Plotline



There is no semblance of a story in TrackMania Turbo. You simply move around the menus picking the tracks to race in. You don’t play as some sort of driver hoping to shatter world records - you just exist. The campaign mode simply lets you move around the game’s plethora of tracks from four different locations. Although the lack of story may put off some players, this works well, especially on a gameplay-centric game such as this.

Gameplay



TrackMania Turbo is probably the finest example of an arcade racing game. You drop into a track after hanging from a crane, and the moment you reach the ground, the timer starts. No, you don’t get to physically race against other players: you’re left to attempt to beat your previous times and those who raced before you. It’s a formula that may seem boring and dull, but the game’s tracks make it a worthwhile experience.

Speaking of tracks, there are four different environments, each with a variety of tracks of their own. The first you will encounter is the Grand Canyon Drift, where sharp turns and narrow bends fill the tracks. You will need to master drifting in its numerous courses, and you may find yourself frustrated in behind the wheel. Another location is the International Stadium which is full of gravity and physics defying loops and ramps that would leave you several seconds in midair. The final two are the Down & Dirty Valley which is a hilly countryside and the Rollercoaster Lagoon where you may find yourself dizzy when going through countless loop. Overall, the differences between the tracks make every race a journey. You never know what you will encounter and will definitely look forward to what the next course brings.

In terms of actually controlling your vehicle, TrackMania Turbo takes a while to get used to, considering each of the vehicles work differently. For example, a NASCAR-like stock car suited for making sharp turns is far different from a speedy F1 vehicle. Unfortunately, you’ll have to rely on the stability of your car when you speed off a huge vertical ramp. You can’t exactly perform stunts and you will be at the mercy of gravity.

TrackMania Turbo’s gameplay loop is fairly simple: drop into a race, learn the intricacies of each track, and finish at the best time possible. Attempting to beat your previous record can be pretty fun, as you can see silhouettes of your previous attempt. There are three finish standards in every track - bronze, silver, and gold - and your goal would be to try and get the gold in every track.

Community



One of the best parts of TrackMania Turbo is its multiplayer elements. You can play locally with friends via split-screen, or a control a single car with a friend which may result into interesting and funny playthroughs. The best part is the game showing you how you stack up with the rest of the world. The game shows your exact ranking on each track, and although you may rank in the thousands, you can always repeat and try to place higher. In addition, it also has individual rankings in every country (you get to choose which country you want to rank in) and in select areas, states and certain locations.

TrackMania Turbo also has 100-player races which are fun affairs. Although you don’t get to physically touch each players’ cars, it’s fun to see their transparent shadows come and go all over the track. In addition, you can play in custom-made tracks made by the community, and there are numerous options available for everybody. You can also create your own, though it’s always best to try out those of the others.

Graphics/Sound



TrackMania Turbo’s presentation elements are top-notch. In terms of visuals, it’s impressive: the textures and environments are typical for a triple A racing game. The art style varies per track: you’ll be treated to a rather futuristic tone in the International Stadium, with vibrant lights and concrete tracks, while in Rollercoaster Lagoon, you will be racing in tracks that are canopied by tall treetops.

Conclusion



Overall, TrackMania Turbo is one of the most impressive arcade racing games this generation. It’s fast-paced, fun, and you can enjoy it with everybody. Moreover, it is relatively easy to get into: simply drop in and play by yourself or with your friends. Don’t sleep on this game: if you’re a PlayStation Plus subscriber, hurry up and download it. You’re missing out on one of this gaming generation’s best experiences.
