Editors' Review

+

Previous NASCAR simulations have captured the excitement and speed of racing, but this latest entry from EA Sports is specifically designed for PC gamers with a strong knowledge of the sport. All the automobile settings, from the tire traction to the clutch dead zone, are customizable. Those of us still learning what everything does, however, can set most of the difficult manual controls to automatic. The result is an accessible racing game that's full of extra options for gearheads.

The demo lets you enter the Brickyard 400 or Banquet 400 races at the Indianapolis Motor Speedway or the Kansas Speedway, respectively. From the moment you get behind the wheel, you'll notice the cars feel more realistic than in other games. They're heavier, with more momentum, and the weight of the cars will shift at different speeds on different parts of the track.

The game looks and sounds fantastic, from the colorfully accurate cars and excellent track details to the roaring engine and the shifting transmission. Playing the game without driver aids is very hard for inexperienced racers, which creates a nice, long learning curve for hard-core NASCAR fans who want to control the whole race like their real-life counterparts do.

"A game for those who know what Nascar is"

February 14, 2010  |  By Mbhiza

 |  Version: Not Found

Pros

This game is quit interesting when one stars it up, creates a profile and makes choices about the driver and stuff but what the games is about even I a die hard racing games fan who lives outside the land of Nascar do not understand what is going on.

Cons

If you do not know what Nascar is or you cannot stand Nascar then this game just is bad as it really is

Summary

the idea behind Nascar seems to suck and the game follows those foot steps. i hate the style of racing and paying for this would be giving money away.

Pros

Top of the line graphics! Feels like you're really in the car. As long as you have the processor power and enough RAM, the graphics will not bog down your system.
