Can not wait for this game!!! Looks like NASCAR The Game Inside Line is going to be the best NASCAR game ever made!!
I hope it's a bit better than 2011
Don't get me wrong,i did enjoy the 2011 Nascar game,even though they had a few issues with the game.I mean,it was the first year for it,so some issues were to be expected. To be honest,I think the game would be alot better if it was made like the older nascar game was made. I believe it '08 or it might have been a year or two before that where you couldn't just jump into a sprint cup car and go racing.You had to start off in the Whelen Modified series and work your way through the Truck and then once you earned sponser ship,you was able to get into the Nationwide Series (Was Busch Series back then though).Then finally you were able to eventually get a cup ride.I thought it was great because you had to really work for what you accomplished and then it also gave you the idea of more of the business side of the sport.If they would make the game like that again,it would be so much more worth playing. I mean,everyone knows that you cannot just come into the sport and jump into a sprint car and race that series.It's alot more fun if you had to go through the ranks like a normal stock car driver
First off, I would like to say that online play has NOT improved from Nascar The Game 2011. They say its a whole different code from the previous NASCAR and okay, I'll give them that... Half the restarts are single file only because the outside line is merged with cars INSIDE the inside line. Is this why its called Nascar The Game; Inside Line... because there's only one starting line?
While we're on the topic of online play... if you pit under caution [because you will have a caution, trust me.] all your settings are RESET. Your tire pressure is now a 19 from a 44, your wedge is a 43 from a 55, and you CANT change it. Also if you pit, you risk the chance of being kicked from the game and put into your own race by yourself [even in private races.] 9 lap race we try doing, we're on lap 5 with no lap time posted yet because everybody wrecks on the first turn. People go in to fix their cars which makes them worse. Pocono, after a pit you can't even take the first turn at 45mph.
If you use a force feedback wheel [or probably any wheel I'd imagine] when you start a race from a restart, the wheel is turned and not straight so as soon as the green flag waves your into the wall or into another car. When you get that situated, while accelerating you have to keep the wheel turned to the right to keep from driving downwards, but as soon as you lift your foot from the gas pedal, your car decides it wants to turn the way your wheel is facing.
Overall, this game is frustrating and if I could - I would return it to gamestop and trade it in, but I know they are smarter than that and just like the first NASCAR, they would only give me 15$ for it.
Nascar The Game: Inside or Outside Line?
The game is great update in my opinion of last years game. The career mode by itself is more or close to more fun than online itself. You can drive at talladega in online or career and you will get help from the rest of the pack regardless. The other reviews are smashing this game but truthfully, this game is the closest to the former EA games yet. I mean, it's career mode is almost identical to one of the games, I believe it was Nascar 07 or 09; it overall is a great game. Darlington, Martinsville and a few other frustrate me but thats the point of nascar, if you aren't frustrated at some point of the season in nascar, you aren't a true fan or gamer of it. I like all the paint schemes but some drivers dont have enough and some have way too many compared to others. But its a great game. Do I wish I had still preordered it, no. Just because there was no preorder bonus but I am glad I have it. It to me should cost around $35-40.
Gonna be Good
It is certain with the much later than usual release date for a Nascar game that Eutechnyx is really trying to right the ship with the to some lackluster Nascar the Game 2011. I personally, after getting the latest patches and stuff thought that it wasn't too bad. AI needed improvement but doesn't it always seem like that in driving games? The visuals and everything that has been promoted in terms of features sounds much more fuller of a nascar experience than NTG 2011 ever was. Just hope that they can deliver on what they say is offered cuz if so, this game will be better than anything EA put out. The fan vote for the cover is already more than EA ever did for a nascar game. Even if it's the equal of Nascar Thunder 2004, that would be a high mark for me as that was one of the best nascar games ever made...that is if Papyrus never made NR2003, but that's another story. Even though its not likely that the Nationwide or Truck Series will be in the game again, my hope is just for something solid and an improvement over NTG 2011. They can do that, they'll have a fan base and could put these series in future titles.
DO NOT BUY
This game reminds me of Nascar 09. The one thing I like to do is MAKE MY OWN CARS AND DRIVE THEM. YOU CAN NOT DO THIS IN NASCAR INSIDE LINE, YOU CAN MAKE YOUR OWN CAR, BUT YOU CAN ONLY DRIVE IT FOR FUN. YOU CAN NOT USE IT IN SINGLE SEASON OR CAREER MODE, SO WHAT IS THE POINT OF HAVING A PAINT SECTION IF YOU CAN NOT USE IT. SO STUPID, THIS MADE ME SO MAD. I DO NOT RECOMMEND THIS GAME FOR NO ONE. SO MISLEADING. EA SPORTS WITH NASCAR 09 WAS THE BEST GAME EVER. I LOVED HOW YOU COULD MAKE YOUR OWN CARS, YOU COULD EVEN MAKE THEM WITH ACTUAL PICTURES WITH ADOBE. LOVED THAT GAME, TOO BAD THEY CLOSED THE WEBSITE TO UPLOAD CAR PAINT DESIGNS. IF YOU JUST WANT TO RACE CARS USING THEIR OWN CARS, THEN GO FOR IT. IF YOU LIKE TO RACE YOUR OWN CARS, THIS IS NOT FOR YOU. I MISS YOU EA SPORTS NASCAR 09. PS. THE SOUND WAS AWESOME WHEN RACING INSIDE THE CAR, AND ONE BAD THING IS THE CAR IS OFF CENTER TO THE LEFT WHEN YOU LOOK AT A SIDE VIEW OF THE CAR. NOT SURE WHY THEY JUST DIDN'T LEAVE IT CENTER ON THE TV. THIS GAME IS NOT WORTH 60 DOLLARS ON XBOX LIVE. I WOULD WAIT UNTIL ITS UNDER 20 BUCKS.
Buy it! dont listen to reviews!
I was looking for a good racing game and got this game and wow I really like it. I dont no what all this hate is about for this game? I read these awful reviews and thought man im not going to waste my money but something said you should pick it up and give it a try and so I did. Game play is awesome the sound is awesome and the graphics is awesome. I am assuming most of these reviews are before that patch came out so I dont no what the game was like then but I can tell you it is good now.
I will be honest the online could be better. I expected loads of people to be playing this game and there really isnt what I would call lots and truthfully I dont no why there isnt to me there isnt a reason why there shouldnt be lots playing this game. anyhow I suggest you to get it. the campaign is awesome also its very fun and challenging. Overrall I give this game a 9 to maybe a 9.2 and would be a 9.5 or 10 if it wasnt for the lack of people playing it online and the $25 add on car pack (optional) again if you like racing and nascar get it and hope to see you online!
this game is so realistic and very fun best nascar game in a while wish there were some more details but overall great
Looks Good.....So Far
Nascar 2011 was a bit of a disapointment... Except for the cool graphics. My favorite Nascar game will always be Nascar Thunder 2004, unless this game is better. What i'm happy about is the fact that other drivers will actually DRIVE the alternate paint schemes. The damage looks ALOT like Nascar 08 and Nascar 09. Seems like another version of the last three Nascar games (with the exception of Nascar Kart Racing and Nascar Unleashed). I'm also happy that ONLY Nascar Sprint Cup Series drivers are going to be in this game. But I would AT LEAST have the Nascar Nationwide Series in this game. I'm still going to buy this game though. It just looks like it is better than Nascar 2011
