Not very good...

This game is NOT very good.
Pros:
Great graphics
Good sound
Good Camera angles (i.e Inside car, behind, Far Behind, etc.)
All the NASCAR drivers
Ability to create cars
Cons:
Horrible Gameplay
Horrible Controls
Cars are always turning itself to the left, maybe trying to "help" you, but mainly making you go out of control.

To start, the game has very good graphics and sound, has good camera angles, has all NASCAR drivers (from 2008), and you can create your own cars (with own Number, color, designs, etc.). On the other hand, it has horrible controls and gameplay. Your car always veers to the left, on curves AND on the straight-away. When it does this, it will most likely make you go out of control. The cars are almost impossible to drive. The steering is VERY sensitive, and I don't know if adjusting sensitivity will help or not, but considering how bad it is right now, it probably won't. If your very experienced with driving games, you may be able to drive correctly, but most people, including me, can't drive it to the best of my knowledge. At least GameFly is here to let you try the game first! Because that is what I recommend, a rental only.

This game is just stupid how hard it is!! I am 42 & have been a gamer since I whinned & cried my parents into buying me the first pong game in our neiborhood 30 years or more ago & I had a very hard time with this game.My boys who are 14 & 12 lost interest and quit after less than half an hour & these boys are good at most games. The car in this game is impossable to control & the chase mode is just horriable & season mode is not much better. We were not at all impressed with this game. I am so glad we rented it first I would have been furious if I had just bought it for the boys & they quit playing after 30 mins. & never touched it again!!

Although the graphics were good, Ps2 version is much better and easier to drive. The fact that they rushed to put this out shows. If you don't have a steering wheel, stay away from this game. But if you have a lot of time to practice, you might learn to enjoy it more.
