I hope any racing game fans like myself will take this warning. I will start by admitting that I did not even make it far enough to even try the game play and after 2 minutes in the options, I didn't even want to. I am warning anyone who has a similar driving style as me to STAY AWAY!! This is for one simple reason: controls. I have refined my skills using the right analog stick as my throttle and brake and have no intentions of changing. Nascar 08 has 4 default control settings, and every one of them uses the right analog to look around. There are a couple of racing games this could be handy for, but in a Nascar game, where the majority of players already know ALL of the tracks, this is a wasted feature. I'm sure someone will call me a wuss for being unwilling to change, but i shouldn't have to. If you use buttons for your brake and acceleration, go ahead and give it a whirl. But if you're like me and need to be able to use that right stick, steer clear, because EA doesn't care about you, me, or the rest of us.

i'm not a huge racing fan, but i thought the game was ok. if you are a racing fan you will probably love it. the steering is a little out of control for me, but the graphics, and game modes are good...
