TrackMania 2 Stadium is the last title in the series Trackmania the game that revolutionized the eSports. Stadium is the closest game of TrackMania Nations, bringing the series back to the stadiums. If you read my review to TrackMania 2 can see I'm not the biggest fan of the series, but I recognize their strengths. It is a very addictive game, but is based much more on decorating a circuit than react to opponents for example. No contact or any kind of damage, but it is probably one of the biggest games with the notion of speed.
Early on will see the similarities with Nations. The goal is always to reach the end as fast as possible and try to get one of three medals, bronze, silver or gold, all separated by mere thousandths of a second. Achieve a gold medal can be a real challenge, only the best will get but the challenge does not end there, because online you may need to make the circuit with zero errors to get to get close to the best times.
