Excellent

On the right track

I'll admit, this game has a few flaws, but they're moving in the right direction. When Eutechnyx set out to make this game, their goal was to fix the actual racing and make it more realistic. They succeeded for the most part. The biggest problem I see is in the caution flags, but, name one NASCAR that has been released since 2004 that doesn't have the cautions messed up. There are a few things that this game lacks on the side like the intimacy of the carreer mode that games like 2005, but it's obvious that Eutchnyx has brought the franchise back from the grave. It may still have one foot still in the ground, but they're getting there.

What I'd like to see in the next game:
-Driver Creation
-Fixed Caution flags
-Driver interviews
-Sponsership intimacy
-Whelen, Truck and Nationwide Series
-Easier to follow career mode
-Dumber AI Drivers (I mean seriously, how come the other drivers never make any mistakes on any NASCAR games?)

Racing Games Still Need Repairs

Number One, In creating my own driver I want to have a choice of a female! I am so so so so so so so so so sick and tired of all the gender bias in racing games.

Number Two, the graphics were awesome!!! Beautiful game and great artwork.

Number Three, Good job with selecting race length and when to have normal or shorter times to need to pit. I like games that are real-life sports to be as authentic as possible.

Number Four, In crashes I still get the short end of the stick. All racing games do that. In a crash, my car flips and spins and does all sorts of fancy acrobatics. Other cars just brush it off and leave me behind like I am riding a child's tricycle.

Number Five, It's good that other cars do indeed crash when I am nowhere close to them. Many race games make opposing drivers way too perfect! It's like racing God!

I had a love-hate time with this game. It was fun, but needs some work.

Middle of the pack

This game could be so much more than what it is. You cant skip ahead to other races in career mode. The car damage is very disproportionate. The CPU cars, when they wreck dont have so much as a dent when they hit the wall at 180 mph. If you scrape the wall, there goes your front fender. We all know about the caution flag issue. For example while raving the monster mile, 3 laps left, huge wreck on the back stretch..NO CAUTION!!! I had to keep driving through what turned into a parking lot. They can definitely do alot better than the product brought before you today, and hopefully 2012 will show that improvement. The game is just bland, and i,m a huge Nascar fan.
