Honestly, Nascar games need to go back to how Nascar 09 was. I believe that was the game where in career mode you got to start your career in the Truck series, then worked to Nationwide, then up to Sprint. They need to make career mode legit, not just jumping into the Sprint Cup. 09 also had the ability to be hired by a team so you could have teammates, which would be nice again.
This is also third creator of Nascar games. Not hating on what Deep Silver does because I like the Dead Island games, but it worries me...
Good Luck though, hope this game comes out great!
I great game for NASCAR fans!
I picked this up just recently so this review is post-patch. I game runs solid with no lag even when your in the back of a 42 car field. The career mode is basic because the Sprint Cup is the only league represented here. I hope whoever makes the next NASCAR game includes the Camping World Truck Series and Nationwide Series. Gamers have been asking for them for 6 years. Also, include ALL the tracks in these series. Something even the great EA could never do. The racing is fun and the difficulty is completely adjustable. Set the AI to 0% easy, add whatever driving aids you need to keep it off the wall, then just add driver AI 5% until you are challenged. There is no instructions so I would look online for setups for your car and what the in race adjustments do. The biggest selling point for this game is the ability to use the right stick for gas/brake. If you are a fan of the Sprint Cup, this is your game!
The Frustration Continues!
After constantly trying to enjoy this game, it just sucks! I literally just finished playing and hated the gameplay so much that i had to write a review. This game is just a waste of time if you are looking for a life like racing experience. Im going back to my PSP days with Nascar 07 where you at least can finish a race without wanting to scream.
So far so good!
First of all I would like to say I can't believe how realistic the cars look so far! They look just like a car you would see in real life! Damage is looking a little more realistic. I hope to see more soon!
This is probably the best nascar game i've played except for one thing. On restarts or at the start of the race you have no chance!! They just blow by you or worse just wreck you!! Hopefully the patch this up on an update. Other than that its a darn good game!!
DO NOT BUY THIS GAME IF...
IF YOU ALREADY OWN NASCAR THE GAME INSIDE LINE THEN DO NOT BUY THIS GAME, CUZ IT IS THE SAME EXACT GAME WITH ONLY A FEW MINOR CHANGES. One of the changes is that you can race your own painted car in career mode, other than that the GAME IS EXACTLY Nascar the Game Inside Line. WHY didn't they just call it Nascar the Game Inside Line 2? PLEASE KNOW THAT NASCAR O9 IS STILL THE BEST NASCAR GAME OUT THERE RIGHT NOW FOR XBOX 360, AWESOME GRAPHICS, JUST HORRIBLE DRIVING GAME PLAY. If they could put Nascar 09 Graphics with Nascar the Game Inside Line driving style, THEN YOU WOULD HAVE ONE AWESOME NASCAR GAME, BUT NOOOO THAT WOULD BE TOO HARD TO DO. THE CARS LOOK LAST GENERATION. IN THIS GAME, HOW DO WE GO BACKWARDS IN TIME WITH GRAPHICS? NASCAR 09 WAS BEAUTIFUL...LIGHTS ON THE CARS, SUN SETTING, CLOUDS, RACE TRACK. NASCAR 09 HAS BETTER GRAPHICS THAN XBOX ONE, I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW THEY CAN'T MAKE A BETTER NASCAR GAME AND ITS BEEN 5 YEARS LATER? I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND. OH WELL I AM GOING BACK AND PLAYING NASCAR 09. EA WHY DID YOU EVER GIVE NASCAR UP? STUPID MOVE IF YOU ASK ME. SO SAD SO SAD.
could be better
i was really hope for a carrer mode from the trucks to the nascar cup.i thought that the game devlopers would have listen to the gamers on what they really wan tin a good nascar game. i will allwas buy the game i just want more in it.
Really hoping that at LEAST Nationwide series is on this game. Should after how long it took for this game to come out. Gen 6 cars are going to look SWEET! It sucked not having the Nationwide series or Truck series on the last 2 games! Pretty much the only thing I play on the NASCAR games is the Career mode. Would love to have a new version of NASCAR Thunder 2003.
Game needs some major help
Well, I figured I'd give Nascar 14 a chance after not playing any Nascar games in quite a while....I left being very VERY disappointed. There are many flaws with this game right off the bat. Keep in mind I started off just trying to start a new career, I didn't bother venturing into multi-player. 1st Problem: game froze on loading screen for 10 minutes so I continuously got to answer the same questions they ask, then finally went to the main welcome screen (my xbox has had no previous game read problems) 2nd problem: I started the race and had my doors blown in by the AI cars at 50% (put on 5% difficulty for a different race and the result was the same). Come to find out, if you give the AI cars an inch they take a mile, you get wrecked when you try to even block them. On top of that, they seem to be on a rail and never make a mistake. 3rd problem: when the caution came out (99% of the time from me getting spun) I lost positions some how. One instance was going from 2nd place (first turn of the first lap) to dead last by the time the race restarted. Other times I've been in the top 10, got spun and next thing you know I'm restarting in 35th or further back. 4th and final problem I've experienced: in game audio works whenever it feels like it. I would restart a race with no car noise/spotter voice just what sounded like wind coming from my speakers. Out of the blue there would be sounds of the engine and/or screeching tires coming from the speakers but that ended and just went back to the wind noise. All in all, I strongly suggest avoiding this game all together unless you enjoy getting aggravated. My copy is headed back to gamestop within the hour (had it less than a day and maybe, MAYBE played a total of 2 hours)
GREAT GAME 14
fun game much improved from last nascar game, fun to reck cars, but if you like relistics, you should not buy this game.
