Overall - this is a good rental to waste some time.
Graphics were solid, looked really nice Sound could have been better..... Gameplay was good (except for the Caution Flag glitch which is mentioned in almost every review) A major problem I had was during Daytona, set it to run 75 laps or so. I was leading with ten laps to go when I was getting ready to run out of fuel, had to pit, no one else (AI) came in, went from front to back, why was my fuel so low but the AI cars had enough to finish the race?
My biggest complaint....ONLINE Racin' (which is why I wanted this game) is terrible. First, had problems connecting to a lot of the tracks or timeout while waiting. My First race, a couple of the guys in front of me wrecked, I could not avoid contact and got spun from behind, when trying to turn around and get going again I was booted from the game with a warning that I was banned for reckless driving? Really? Hey Activision, there is a thing in NASCAR called a Black Flag, Use it....and not on someone who is trying to turn around and brushes the wall on a tight track....

I've played about 5 races in the career mode and the first thing I noticed is that you start out directly in the Sprint Cup Series. What happened to the old style Nascar game where you started out below the truck series and had to work your way up to the Sprint Cup? Secondly, the damage is so unrealistic. The only way I can see going out of a race is by blowing your engine or a tire. Whatever happened to critical damage forcing you to end your race? Plus in a pile up situation, it looks like a bunch of hotwheels smashing into each other. The graphics and sound are good at best. Overall, I think there needs to be a developer willing to spend the money and time working on a great Nascar game. Cuz this just doesn't cut it.

You can tell they hurried this game to get it out but it's still better than any nascar game that EA put out! Now they need to take their time and make improvements to this game instead of going a completely different direction like EA would do all the time. The game play and graphics are great, everything else needs worked on. I think Activision is going in the right direction just got in a hurry to put this out. Now make it better!
