Rated 4 out of 5 by from great for all ages. This game has allowed me to fill my time after school racing against opponents fit to my standards. the game can be easily enjoyed by expert nascar racers or people who just want to win. the realistic graphics make for a great expirience. it is a fitting replacement for Nascar 2011 if you dont feel like spending the extra twenty dollars for that game. this version of nascar is just as good.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from NASCAR 09 When NASCAR 09 came out, I had no idea what to expect. On one hand, I knew that there have been many good games for the series. On the other, I knew 08 was a disaster. When I put it in, I really liked it. But it needs some work. I hate the lack of manufacturers in the game. They play such a big part in the sport, yet they are easily cut. The engines and overall sound seemed flat to me. Was expecting more from that. The 2 driving models are a Nice touch. This being my first game I would consider sim, it was nice starting easy, and working my way up. The paint booth is amazing. Only complaint is that I want to see everybody's custom schemes, no just my friends. Not happy again with the roster. They really need to license more drivers, and get rid of all the fake ones. Sprint challenges where fun. Own the track I felt was a bit over hyped. The career mode was great. This is a great start. But for NASCAR 2011, whoever makes it. It can definitely be improved.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from a great game!!!!!!! I've played this game for a while and i think it is a great game with very good graphics for its time and has a great variety of tracks,cars, and customization. The tracks are all realisticly created in accordance to the real deal. The cars all have correct logos and detail. the replay value of this game is what makes it great. If you have a game that takes an hour to finish and starts over whats the point? This is a game that will bring you back wanting to play more, you can replay tracks with different outcomes every time you play. The overall value of this game is stupendous. When you play this game you will feel like your actually in the car racing. This racing experience most likely keep being a great seller for the time between it and the release of 2010. Even then it will probably sell great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best Nascar game ever! Nascar 09 is awesome! Jeff Gordon is your mentor, who guides you through the game with lots of helpful tips. They just made the game so much more user friendly this year. Aside from him being a mentor, there are two new driving styles: Normal and Pro. Normal is for beginners and Pro is for more experienced players. There's also a new paint booth this year where you can customize your own car any way you want. There are so many things to do in the game. There are Sprint Driver Challenges where you compete in lots of different challenges that are fun to play but difficult to beat. There's also a new career mode this year where you build your reputation by earning REP points to earn better sponsorships and even a contract offer from Jeff Gordon! The game has amazing graphics. It looks cool how Jeff was put into the game and the cars look great. I'm a huge fan of the soundtrack as well. Its a shame there isn't a multi-player offline though but its still the best Nascar game out there and I'd recommend it to anyone!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from What Happened !?!?!? I have been a big fan of EA Nascar games for quite a long time, and for the most part, have been satisfied with the whole Nascar experience from EA. To give an idea of my level of interest to Nascar, i have SEVERAL die cast vehicles ( over 150 ), as well as a large Jeff Gordon tattoo that he actually autographed. So for me to be negative towards Nascar 09'... i can't believe it myself! Where to begin;... to get additional paint schemes for your favorite drivers, you have to purchase them in the Playstation Store, instead of opening them with accomplishments.The numbers that you can use when you create a car are again all in the 100's, not very realistic if you ask me. Another thing that makes the game very aggrivating is the amount of flags thrown during races, especially the black flags thrown for "bumping" during the race, which makes you have to do a drive through of pit lane. You go from top 10, to last place instantly. I played the game a total of 6-7 times, and got black flagged 8 times. For those of us that still believe in the theory of " rubbing is racing", NOT ANYMORE!! Something that adds to this frustration is that if you and another computer car are battling for a position, it acts as if it doesn't even know you are on the outside of them. The CPU cars keep the exact same path, giving you absolutely no room on the outside even to be 2 wide without slamming you into the wall. So as this happens, you get black flagged for being on the outside of another car... they run into you, but you pay the price! Playing against real players might be more fun, but i returned my copy to the store before i ever tried it. Rent it first.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from For the true NASCAR fan I hadn't picked up a NASCAR game since NASCAR 06, but I had played a demo of this year's game and it looked interesting so I thought I would try it out. The graphics and sound for this game are very good, as should be expected for any next-gen game. It's hard to complain about the vehicle customization and variety because it is afterall a NASCAR game so it's not as though there are many vehicle options. They did leave out the ability to race for a certain vehicle manufacturer (i.e. Ford, Chevy, Dodge, Toyota) which is not a major flaw, but it is something I personally think they should have taken the time to insert into the game. The tracks are well designed and are obviously different from each other, a major improvement from the previous NASCAR games I have had experience with where all the 2 mile ovals raced the exact same way at the exact same speeds. Overall, NASCAR 09 is a very solid game, but it may be geared more toward a true fan of NASCAR than just the average gamer looking for a racing game.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Best Nascar Game Yet This is the best Nascar game that EASPORTS has ever put in stores. The graphics are amazing. I am also happy because they changed the handling from Nascar 08. The sound is also great. The cars sound real. The cockpit view is also amazing. When you race in the Craftsman Truck Series the gauges light up. But there is one negative thing about the game. When you are racing and you have black flags turned on, be careful because they will black flag you if you bump a couple drivers. So keep your eyes open and the volumed turned up so you can hear your spotter at all times. I recommend this game for all race fans. When you first start your career, you start in the Craftsman Truck Series. You have to work your way up to the Sprint Cup Series. I hope this review has helped you decide whether to buy the game or not to buy the game. You will be truly amazed of how realistic and how much more fun the game is compared to Nascar 08.
