Nascar 14 Police Edition
Did the police make this game?! Everytime a car gets next to you they will do the cop manuever wiping you out for no reason. Even if you try and let them pass they will still purposely wreck you. Then the pit guy goes "did he just do that" rofl. The graphics are the only thing good about this game. I play alot of racing games. Another epic fail for nascar.
Once I get around 15 laps the game develops a bad glitch, What it does is it becomes like a slow motion and the sound breaks up real bad, once this happens it freezes up, when you go to restart the game it stays there or it will not load, you have to turn the console off. I am going to exchange the game, hopefully it is just the disc, there are no scratches on disc, this is for ps3. If it is a glitch I hope they refund the money or at least give credit. Will see what happens, With out that there are headed in the right direction. Graphics are pretty good, and on track racing is competitive. If it wasn't for the glitch I would give it a 7 out of 10.
The best ie finally back on the track
I must say this game really shocked me. I honestly didn't have good thoughts about this but wow. They finally got it right (minus who is on the cover. This reminds me of NASCAR Chase for the Cup mixed with a little of NASCAR Total Control. The controls on this takes time to get use tocagain because the last NASCAR game sucked big time. The controls on here are flawless, the interface of it is really smooth (would think that it was on the PS4). With the graphics the way they are on this, you would actually think that it was on the PS4. You just have to watch out for Kevin Harvick hitting you as soon as the race starts if you get the pole position. Other than that, the game rocks.
I would like to be able to control the car on pit road, and see more realistic accidents and damage.
Not excited just yet
A great NASCAR game for me depends on the real life physics of the game. The last good nascar game I played was NASCAR 2009. The tracks were true to real life with the developers actually recreating unique aspects of each track, including bumps, track texture/color, and exact layout. Also, the speed the player was able to carry was comparable to real life speeds the drivers reach. Nothing aggravates me more than taking a turn at a ridiculous speed that is unrealistic to the real deal! ( such as 140mph through the turns at Bristol).
Nascar 2011 and Nascar The Inside Line were a far cry from the realism of the EA sports franchises, so I will need to see an improvement on the "realism" side of things in Nascar 14 to be a believer. Not to mention the lack of AI of rival cars. I couldn't race one more lap after realizing how the CPU will form a single file line around the track and not pass!! Really!! Lastly, please, can the developers create some sort of sliding difficulty scale that can be increased in increments to slowly increase CPU lap times! I shouldn't be lapping cars on hard difficulty and not being able to keep up on very hard difficulty. Where's the side by side racing?
make it awesome
most definitely need to focus more on the owner side of nascar. like depending on how much money you have determines how many cars or trucks you can field on your team. also you shuld be able to drive your own car even if you hired somebody or somebody's to drive your other cars. this Nascar game shuld be hard like nascar 2003 but have nationwide wheeling modified campingworld truck series like nascar 05 06 and 07
Hopefully the kinks are out
Hopefully Nascar 14 is in a whole other league when compared to Inside Line. I mean with the way that Inside Line was, well alright. It wasn't a good game because of a lot of development issues. Granted Euthantyx has only had the series for a few years at most, but IL had too manyproblems for a Nascar fan like me to really enjoy it. Like when starting a race in career you had to make the setup or adjust the default. Well the default shouldn't make the car want to spin out when you're not even up to full speed or so loose that the rear end wants to come out from under you. As a racer I shouldn't be able to dominate Martinsville and have a car so bad at New Hampshire that I finish 43rd and finish several laps down. Then the AIs were horrible to say the least, still in throttle when a wreck happens in front of them, has little awareness for the player, they can spin you out so easily, but spinning them is like trying to spin out a tank. Plus at any track they'll race single file and rarely ever pass. Also the time penalties at the road courses if you get off the track coming out of a corner needs to go because you shouldn't get time penalties added on for trying to race hard and going on the paved areas at the exits of the corners or the like.
If a lot of those issues are fixed for Nascar 14 then it'll be a fairly good game, but if not might want to look for another racing game to hold you over till next year.
Make this the best nascar game ever
Nascar thunder 2003 I think was the hardest one. I would like 2014 to be like that but better. It should make us feel like we are in a nascar for real. I also like the jets fly by. Plus getting a crew chief and crew members too.
Info for creators
I think that the creators of this game should bring back the nationwide series and the trucks for the career mode just like they have in nascar 06 total team control were you have to race in the trucks and get a contract in order to move up to the nationwide series and so forth
please nascar 14 creators take this into consideration and make the nascar gaming better thank you
