TrackMania 2: Canyon is an action-oriented racing game. The game offers 65 courses (as always with crazy stunts) set in the eponymous canyon, but in contrast to the predecessors only one car. The main motivation is to improve the best time - this also shows in multiplayer where there is no collision model. In return 199 players can race at once and the online rankings can be sorted after countries or even cities. However, the heart of the game is the editor and the integration with the community. It is only a matter of a few clicks to download, play and later rate the map. The editor itself has a limited beginner mode and one for advanced users. The latter received more course parts since the last game in the series and contains many possibilities, e.g. changing the time of day or making an intro cutscene.
