I own nascar 08. plain and simple it sucks worst nascar i have ever played but nascar 09 was much better. its a good game to pass time because online if you have no clue how to tune a care you will get laped 100 times before the end of the race. but my advice is go get nascar 07 for the playstaytion 2 or xbox honestly the best nascar game i have ever had. they need to take nascar 07 and put it into a new version of nascar because every attemt to make this game "better" and "more realistic" Fails but if u cant get 07 09 is your best bet because dnt waste your time on 08 i picked itt up used for like 3 bucks and only played it like twice

I have to say that after the '08 fiasco, I wasn't going to play EA's NASCAR any more. But, I gave it a try, and found that EA sure hasn't improved the game much. Things like controlling the speed of the car in the pit lane; or still not being able to control the pit crew. Also, this thing with not being able to use a number below 100. Also, you kind of wonder how much effort they really put into the game: Why can't they use the ablility to get sport rosters over the internet, to update the drivers, the sponsors and other ablilities? I'm just disappointed again....

You know I was really Impressed with the leap and bound that 09 has brought to the table. I mean if you are not a race fan you can jump in there and RACE and if you are then HARDCORE BABY!!!! But the bi step was no wake draft to block your view and the graphics are way up this year. The ONLY thing and I mean ONLY I would still like to have pit road control when entering PIT Road. But as game play goes it is Way more fun this year. Oh and by the way My Driver is on the COVER GO Jeff Gordon
