This game has much of the same problems as the last one. The online portion of the game is terrible. Anyone leaving or entering the game as it starts online will cause massive pileups, cars flipping and all kinds of stuff. You would think that developers could make a better online experience since that is the way most games are played now.
On the other hand....The single player career is great. Not impossible to build up your car, or get a grip on the handling of the game. Having to qualify for the shootout, and the All-Star race and then be able to run the segments as they do in real life was an added bonus I didn't expect. I gave this game a 7 because of the online glitches, otherwise it would have gotten an 8 or maybe even a 9.
Overall it is a pretty good game, and well worth a rent. Don't think though that I would want to spend the full $60 for buying it.
I mean, really? You can hardly get out of the pits without spinning out. I make my car as tight as it will go and it's still fish tailing like crazy. All of the AI's are complete idiots. If you go as far as getting 10 ft from another car it'll most likely wreck you. They push you off the track then the Caution flag waves and sends you all the way back to 43rd (last place) And then when you wreck and go flipping across the track 200 times it wont throw the caution. If they barely touch you, you crash. If you slam them (notice I said Slam) You will crash and they will keep going full speed with out any hesitation. Just terrible all around.

If you played nascar 2011 with all the problems with the online game playthen your going to get more of the same. The career mode is pretty good but if you like to play online then you will be very disappointed with all the glitches it has.
