Once again, a Nascar game that is basically made for only those with extreme skill in racing games. I understand the need/want for realism. But for the love of god it's a game. I shouldn't be punished for not being able to turn the wheel the exact degree necessary in order to make a corner. In the few races I tried, I was able to win the pole. Then get passed right off at the beginning of the race. Then, when trying to make the small correction so as not to hit the car below me, BAM! into the wall.. BAM! into the other car.. caution. OVER AND OVER. This is even with most of the assists turned on. Look game makers, the Xbox controller is not a perfectly functioning steering wheel. Give us a break! I would love a Nascar game with the controls of maybe a NFS series game, where if I make a small adjustment mistake my car doesn't go spinning out of control. Maybe have an Arcade Mode and a "I want to act like its a real car not a game" mode."

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.
