Rated 2 out of 10 by mjwebster23 Dont waste your money
I tried writing a review a week ago telling people to not buy this game, lets see if gamestop posts this one. This game is terrible. The AI drivers are absolutely ridiculous. They do not slow down whatsoever, no matter what is going on in front of them. If you are unfortunate enough to slip up a bit in front of a computer car, be ready to get spun out. The computer will not pit under caution, only to pit the 1st lap after a caution when the whole pack is bunched up causing a pile up. Computer cars do not let off for a wreck in front of them, they just go full throttle into the crash. It isnt noticeable on the big tracks, but at a place like Darlington it is an absolute nightmare. Speaking of Darlington, dont be under the dotted white line for more than a few seconds or they will throw a caution, whether you are out of control or not. The only good part about the game is the graphics, but it will take more than just nice shiny cars to keep even the casual fan from throwing their controller through their tv due to the stupid AI drivers. DO NOT WASTE YOUR MONEY!
Rated 10 out of 10 by Janiseguchi A very fun game
I've always liked Nascar games ever since I played them on my PS1. Those games ranged from Nascar 98 to about Nascar thunder 2002 I believe. Then I played some Nascar games on other systems. And I've been hooked on the series of games ever since. I remember playing the first newer Nascar game that came out which was Nascar the game 2011 I believe. I liked that game quite a bit. When I heard about this I just had to pick it up. After playing the first career mode race I found myself loving this game even more. I am very happy with the fact that they included Darrel Waltrip in the game to say his catchphrase. Its one of my favorites. This game just blows my mind with the graphics it has and everything. I would easily recommend this to anyone who is a fan of Nascar games and wants something new to try.
Rated 10 out of 10 by mystersk8er best nascar game on ps3
i was scared to pick this game up after how bad every next gen nascar game has been. however i tried it out and am extremely impressed. they did everything i ever wanted and more in a nascar game. the racing is finally fun, i find myself staying compettive but not dominating. honestly, its the most fun nascar game ive ever played. problems? yes, first off the ai is dumb at times, partically going into the pits they brake right in front of you going into the turn, and when their is a wreak they dont care and just plow head first into it. the other problem is they dont setup your car for you, however on the tuning screen you can choose your setup and its fine. great game, if youve been waiting for a nascar game on ps3, this is your game. play it. seriously.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Twocartango8848 Much better than last year
NASCAR the game inside line is much better than last years game. The career is much more expanded and you can actually race multiple seasons. The online still isnt great but it is better than last years game and I heard they are working to improve it. Last years game was a barebones game that just included career (really only a season) race now and multiplayer. This years game has many more features like inside line challenges where you can relive moments from 2011 and 2012 and career which starts you out as a rookie and you have to work your way to the top. Overall NASCAR the game inside Line is a great improvement and I would strongly recommend to anyone who is a NASCAR fan.
Rated 8 out of 10 by lcracing92 Fun racing game, but quite a bit of annoyances.
Well, where to start...there's quite a bit to mention about this game. It definitely is a lot of fun, especially online, given that you can race up to 16 total players in one lobby. You can race at all the race tracks on the Cup circuit, which is pretty neat. I haven't had a chance to own the previous NASCAR game, so I wouldn't really know what's been improved from that game to this game.
But, of course, there are the flaws. For one, it's when you jump into a lobby. Once you choose a car, and you try joining a lobby for a certain track, the game will choose for you either an open lobby or create one for you. Another thing is that when the host closes out the one you joined, instead of going back to the track selection, the game will send you back to the main online menu (which is one of the offline selections). And, I can't forget to mention the glitches that develop from time to time, even on restarts.
As far as career mode, it's cool that you can build your way up in the Cup series, but that's also the letdown. The game doesn't start you off with what older NASCAR games did, which would have been starting in Trucks to move up to Nationwide and work your way into Cup. If the concept of NASCAR Dirt to Daytona would have been added, that would have been even better (start in dirt tracks, then move to Modifieds, etc.)
I still play to this day, but I already have NASCAR '14 reserved, so I hope the new one is vastly improved.
Rated 8 out of 10 by Howling3 Entertaining and best NASCAR game yet...
If you like games with great graphics and detailed career mode, then this is the NASCAR game for you. Career Mode is Awsome and you have the ability to upgrade you car and garage. Unless its Call of Duty I'm not much of a online player so I cannot comment on that part. I have had game for 1 week and all I play is Career Mode, it's very addicting. Only part that stinks is you cannot change the car design when you start career. I am a casual NASCAR fan and enjoy this game. I enjoy this one more than any of the EA games.
Rated 0 out of 10 by RaceGuy2 Will the issues be fixed???
Hopefully this time around all the bugs will be worked out. Nascar 2011 could have been a pretty great racing game but had a few issues, such as cautions not coming out unless you pile up the field, the online was not very good, and you could not compete in the Truck series, or the nationwide series...I really wish that they would throw in all the major series, plus a few more like Dirt to Daytona a few years back, if they would do that I would be the first one in line to grab this game!
Rated 7 out of 10 by nascar52 steering wheel bummer
I call this an average game, and wouldnt recommend to people who want to use steering wheels, controller is fine, The reaction time on wheel is terrible, no matter how you callibrate or adjust, tried different manufacture on wheel also, no luck. Went back to nascar 2011 version and no problem, somebody at activision dropped the ball on this, But at same time it is alot better version than 2011, they are headed in right direction. If wheel worked great i would give it a 9.
Rated 9 out of 10 by CarMan88 A good improvment on 2011. No Glitches
This game was exactly what I expected. It has much more competitive racing and a full field of cars in split-screen races. I also like the custom paint schemes that u can either buy or make. I have made 5 in just 2 days. U can play your personal music while your playing too, which is a rare thing. If your thinking about getting this or if you aren't sure, you should just buy it.
