Better Then NTGIL
This game is a huge improvement from NTGIL mainly online....................................................................................
HORRIBLE HORRIBLE HORRIBLE
This game wouldn't even be worth $20....SO many glitches that doesn't even make game fun...Glitches like AI car stuck in middle of track(causes Caution flags every lap), You can have 20 Yellow flags and every yellow flag will say its the 1st yellow flag, You can be leading and catch up to the pack which would make them a lap down; once you lap them sometimes it will make you 42nd....Sometime you go to Pit and the guys will stand there and you sit in the pit and watch cars go by and you get lapped till race is over. Can be racing and all of a sudden its like you hit and invisible wall. Sounds doesn't match up to whats going on during the game. Sometimes you can have 3 laps to go and all of a sudden you got 23 laps to go.....
Worst game ever
This game is nothing but a joke!! Freezes all the time worse in multiplayer mode. Do not waste your money on this game. Seems like amateurs made the game.
I have to say that Deep Silver's first version of the Nascar franchise is a "Win!" 2 thumbs up! Deep Silver has improved the game greatly and has learned from Activision and EA Sports mistakes. This is by far the best Nascar game ever produced. I am a hardcore gamer for Nascar game franchise and I have been playing since the first Nascar game by Papyrus in 1996 on PS1. So I'm not just a casual gamer. The gameplay is super smooth! The racing is very competitive and accurate. The physics of the game are very real to reallife racing. The only 2 glinches is why I give this game a "9" instead of "10" is that some oft the wrecks are still glitchy and very arcade with cars flying and so for. This doesn't happen in a real race. Cars do not go vertical straight in the air and come back down. Secondly, the damage is very unrealistic meaning; by being in a crash, the damage should be very visible and the damage should match the crash as far as intensity and location. Hitting the wall at lower speeds or scraping the wall the graphics are pretty accurate. However, the graphics for a hard head on crash is very unrealistic. In real life, this will put the driver out of the race. In the game, you can wreck 8-10 times and still race on to the end of the race. Deep Silver needs to improve on the reality of crashes and damage in my opinion. Everything else though, is top notch. Graphics and sounds are as close as I have ever seen to reality. I love the Gen 6 cars. The paint shop is awesome! I love making retro throwback paint schemes and being able to race them not just in single player mode, but career mode. Also, not just pick one car in career mode, but interchange paint schemes for different races within career mode is an awesome feature. For example: a paint scheme for day time races and another paint scheme for night time races. So, Deep Silver don't change these features. Only add to them. I am a fan of the franchise no matter who makes the game. I believe Deep Silver did a lot of good in making this game. I am not these unrealistic gamers who cannot be pleased even on a perfect game. I am pleased with Deep Silver and look forward to more and improved Nascar games. Get the game, its worth it. Boogity Boogity! Let's go Racing!
ok don't get me wrong here. Nascar is my favorite sport next to MLB and ive gotten every nascar game since 98. but etx what was this?!?!?! for the past 3 years I've been waiting for etx to get some dedicated servers for this franchise and STILL NOTHING. gameplay: the gameplay on nascar 14 is decent. not the best when it comes to getting tapped on the right rear corner panel and losing control and not having a chance of saving the car but overall a solid b+. the AI though IS harder to race against at plate tracks like Dega and Daytona. but at other tracks they're meh. the sound is decent at best. not the best engine sound off a nascar game ive ever heard though. overall B+ for the gameplay. Online: oh god here we go with this. the online on 14 is GARBAGE. ABSOLUTE GARBAGE compared to Nascar for EA. at least they had dedicated servers unlike etx who runs off P2P for their games. seriously? if this game were to have dedicated servers it would be up there with Nascar Racing 03 and Iracing as one of the best Nascar simulators of all time. the game lags sooo badly online, cant hold at least 10 people in a room, freezes constantly over time, and surges badly. THIS IS NOT WHAT ONLINE IS SUPPOSED TO BE LIKE ETX!!! I know they have a patch coming out soon but I hardly believe it. ugh. anyway im sorry but a D- for the online. Physics: the physics on 14 are a little improved from 2011 and inside line and when I say little I mean very little much done. it still looks the same as inside line. only change is gen6 cars. tracks come in crystal clear especially Dega and Daytona. there are a few glitches and bugs here and there but so far I give it a B for effort. lasting appeal: don't expect this game to become the greatest nascar game ever though. I still believe 03 is the best along with Iracing. overall I say this game will probably last 2 to 3 years before people get tired of it. overall grade of game= B-

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?
