I saw this game and it reminded me of NASCAR Rumble for the old PS1 so I got really excited to play it. NASCAR Rumble was one of my all time favorites because it was simple, easy to play and fun. I got 26 achievements and 430 gp out of this game but not without sacrificing my blood pressure. Two words: RUBBERBAND AI. There's nothing worse that making your way to the front only to be passed by 12 cars once you get there. The AI runs on rails and you can't shake them no matter how hard you draft, slam or beat on them. And that's the object of the game! Drifting, slamming and drafting are all part of the game but it doesn't help. When the AI does it, though, get ready to sream things like "ARE YOU KIDDING ME?" or "REALLY?" or everyone's favorite "AWWWW COME ON!" I like a challenge, but I hate being slapped around so if you like games that raise your blood pressure, make you mad and end up with you throwing a controller (I stopped before I thre one) then please rent this game. Otherwise, save your sanity and get something else!

Not What I Was Expecting

One thing I could always count on was anything with the NASCAR name on it would involve tons of turning left and usually involve a career that would let you build up a solid race team. I really wasn't expecting a bad arcade racer that suffers from horrible physics and rubber band AI. Very disappointed in this game and it would have gone back immediately if it wasn't for the easy gamerscore. Really disappointed that they slapped the NASCAR name on this game.

I have never come across such a horrible racing game until now... It deffinately is supposed to be targeted towards a younger audience. Still, the graphics are HORRIBLY outdated and it is overall a complete waste of time. The game has absolutely no enjoyment what soever. I would deffinately avoid this game at all costs.
