Well.....after playing a quick race and reading the reviews buy others, I sat down to really give this game a once over.
The game play itself is AWESOME! This is the most real nascar game yet. YES you have to turn right to stay straight, NASCAR tracks have banking and you have to keep your car on the banking. The speed is realistic and much better that of the '07 game. They got rid of the stupid team control from '07 and replaced it with better telemetry. The game play itself is the only thing lacking. You have to go through a TON of levels to get to actual racing your own car. All in all this is better than '07 but not as good as '06.

After reading some of the critic reviews of this game I was very eager to play this game, as I have been a fan of Nascar and their games for a long time now. I went ahead and bought this game and now feel a little of the buyers remorse. Graphically this game looks great but the lack of ability to steer the car in traffic makes this a waste of technology. After an almost 2 yr wait for nascar on the 360 I was rather upset but the lack of control. I dont know who tested this game for EA but they should be Fired and soon.

I could not wait for this game but I am extremley dissapointed. EA has ruined another great possibility, much like the madden franchise. Not all Nextel Cup drivers are Carl Edwards! Major glitches (cars going through the track during crashes), online lag (surprise for EA?). No career mode, very very few different paint schemes. The car will NOT drive in a straight line, this can be adjusted, EXCEPT on the challenges. Trying to drive the car is terrible because the rear end is always too loose no matter how you adjust it. Graphics are ok but not next gen.EA had 2 years to work on the 360 release of this game so my hopes were high and I am very upset at this "game". I am a huge NASCAR fan but not for the 360 this year.
