Thuroughly enjoying the game!

Good balance in cars, AI is a pleasant challenge, Challenges are fun, and it's white-knuckle racing the whole time in career.

I Love It But It Was Over Hyped!!!

I like all of the challenges and paint schemes but I don't like how when there is a crash the yellow rarely comes out. Also racing at Daytona isn't as fun as it was on NASCAR '15. Oh, and yeah, it was also very over hyped. Over all it is a fun game to play, the game is simply what it was shown to be in the commercial, DMR's first better NASCAR game in a while and hopefully theres more to come in the future. The people who rate this game a 1 or a 2 are the people who over hyped this game to be the best next thing, or the people who listened to the people who over hyped this game. In my opinion this game was well worth my money.

not good

feels like a game you would play at chuckie cheese. not what i want from a game that i expect a realistic type career racing experience from. NASCAR thunder 2004 is what I want, even NASCAR 15 was pretty good.

Developer has a bright future

Although this game lacks many features compared to other racing games on the market. This plays great with a wheel and is very easy to pick up with a control. Simple menu designs and fast loading times are a plus. 7/10 game play.....10/10 fun factor.

great game but needs work

I like the damage modle it is realistic. I would like to have the 360 view of the car. It would also be nice to have caution replays and to have the burn outs back after winning a race. When you hit the wall nothing shows up on it and when you slide acrose the grass it would be cool to see your tire marks in it. There are some bugs that need to be fixed but other than that its a great racing simulater

IGNORE THE BAD REVIEWS - Look at how mad they are

Looks like I didn't get the memo where gameplay means nothing in todays world. This game is actually really good. Period. Get over yourselves. Just because you can't make your own crappy paint schemes doesn't take away from the fact that we one of the most immersive, competitive, and intense racing games in a LONG time. Is it perfect? No. People have this 1 because its a little pricey and they don't have certain features. Hello? This is a REBOOT of all Nascar games. Really fun to try out and practice on the different tracks. The AI is so racey and aware its almost scary. You feel like you're in the middle of a real race. Physics are pretty good, could be better, but semi realistic. Ignore the bad reviews. I had to give this a 5 to balance out the 1's. This game is an addictive 7.5/10. Can't wait to see how DMR improves this game and with newer editions each year. If you really want a decent nascar game, buy this for 60 or wait a little til its on sale. But it does what its supposed to.

After playing many racing games over the years my standards have become very high for what I would call a "good game". That is why I am incredibly disappointed in this one. Graphics, reminescent of the early 2000 NASCAR games. Handling, poor and very unrealistic. Sounds, even worse. NASCAR inside line from several years ago is 10 times what this game wishes it was. Very irritated that I spent 60 dollars on this game. DO NOT BUY unless you like the arcade nostalgia from the 80s. Horrible game. Should have gone to gamestop so I could at least get my money back. Developers completely dropped the ball on this one.
