My son loves NASCAR and I thought this game would be perfect for him, but he lost interest after a couple of days. He was frustrated almost to tears at the slingshot mechanic that makes no sense. He couldn't get it figured out, while the AI had no problem shooting right past him with it. It just wasn't compelling enough to keep him from gravitating to the realism of NASCAR 09 on my XBox 360. For someone who absolutely loves NASCAR to choose Mario Kart over this game when given a choice just goes to show that this game is pretty much a miss.
i am a big NASCAR fan, however this game did not go FAST enough for me. I have played the Mario Cart and that is faster. Graphics were great. Weapons were hard to figure out on the controller as well. Took me awhile to figure that out.
This game is fantastic. I love everything about it. The control is the best, the cars steering is accurate and responsive. The graphics are excellent, every detail is nicely done and visually beautiful. The game play is great, you can race in tournaments, one-on-one, multiplayer, etc., you get to unlock characters and tracks. It carries the Nascar license and features real drivers like Jeff Gordon, Jimmy Johnson, Dale Jr..
I recommend this game to everyone, and the "wheel" acc. is an absolute must - it makes you steer better. I am going to purchase this game, using the "keep it" feature, when I get the money. Thanks Gamefly, you're the best!!
