Rated 9 out of 10 by Secretic 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.
Rated 9 out of 10 by shaunm81 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!
Rated 5 out of 10 by FPSoldSCHOOL 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.
Rated 0 out of 10 by Duck0574 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

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.
Rated 6 out of 10 by nascarfan24 Better Than 2011 but Falls Short of Expectations
While this game is a big step in the right direction for NASCAR, there are still major issues that seem to be unresolved. The online is still not worth playing as bugs, glitches and constant wreckers still plague the game. Offline has been improved but is still not acceptable. You must start out with the paint scheme they give you until you earn sponsorship (which can vary depending on what you do in career). Double-file restarts are still not fixed, as the first car pulls ahead of you by several car lengths. They say this is the most realistic game they have ever done. The fact is, it's not. There are very few things that are realistic about this game. I strongly recommend you rent this first before you buy, but I don't really recommend anymore NASCAR games until they get it right.

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
Rated 10 out of 10 by Denny11Hamlin Still Awesome
I have done a review on this game before. I did make one mistake on that review and that was I didn't win in the 1st, 2nd or 3rd season when I meant 1st or 2nd. I am on my 7th season now and have won 4 consecutive championships and pretty much locked in for my 5th. I am still very addicted to this game and can't wait for the next NASCAR game to come out. I just tried the online racing and I didn't really see anything wrong with it. Just to let people know that I have a Xbox 360. I don't see what's wrong with this game. I haven't seen better and I can't believe someone would say they like NASCAR 2008 or 09 better than this. This game is so much more realistic.
Rated 0 out of 10 by JollyRoqer Dont trust the hope......
I was a trusting soul when the NASCAR 2010 had the backing of previous Papyrus employees however the game was a total and absolute failure to anyone who was looking for a good racing game let along NASCAR racing game. Thy dropped the ball BIG time and now they expect the public to belly up to the table for some more? DO NOT PAY NEW PRICE for this game unless you have played it first!!!! Or else you will end up like all those people in the game fly commercial who bought a bad game. Screaming and crying and tossing TV's out the windows!
