Rated 7 out of 10 by ilsury Sprint car racing is back!
This game revives the sports car games of old. Back from the PS2 days. The tracks all are very distinct for having to be the same basic structure. The backgrounds really set them apart from each other. The gameplay is simple like most other racing games. The AI actually gives you a run for your money as you run up on the back runners very early in races and they can occasionally slow you down. The track deformity looks very well done. The damage however seems very pre-determined. You could do four roles and still have the same amount of damage as if you had simply done one. The engine sounds are not great either, they sound too high pitched. The graphics aren't a great part of this game either. They look like something you would expect in the late last gen games. All in all I think this is worth the twenty dollars you spend to get it especially since there was no Nascar game released this year. The career mode will keep you busy for a while as you race through a 43 race season. I would certainly recommend this product.
Rated 10 out of 10 by hotrod89 great game
There is only one thing to say about this game. If you like racing games with a challenge this is the game. I have played alot of racing games from need for speed to nascar, and this is the most challenging so for. I will just say it is different. The graphics are good and the track scenery is so reallistic. The races get harder as you go through the career but it is fun. I have had this game for about a week now and it is by far my favorite. The car details are great from the colors to the graphics. I would definitely recommend this game for some one up to a challenge, and for anyone who like nascar games since they didn't make a 2010 for nascar. If you are new to this type of racing it may take you a little bit to get use to it but once you do you will have a great time going through the career or playing against you friends. I don't have xbox live so i don't know how the online playing is like but i will soon.

Look the truth is not a lot of people go to dirt track races to see how fun they can be. If a good developer was to take the time to produce a top notch dirt track oval game, they would be surprised at how it would sell. Put late models, 8 cylnder divisions, and even mod 4's into the loop. Nascar can get boring and repetitive at times but dirt track racing offers an ever changing track and more possibilities to update what you bring. A dirt track racing game would be the ( DIFFERENT) racing game that everyone is craving. There is way to much competition in the simulation asphault games that are out there right now. Video game developers are always looking for that new game style to put them on the map. Hello! It's gonna be dirt track racin! Whats it gonna take. Lets put someone on the map!
Rated 8 out of 10 by Lightning Room for improvement
Dont get me wrong this game is worth buying but i could think of several things to make it better. For one the sound isnt really what a sprint car sounds like. Another is the cars dont flip as much like they did on the 2002 world of outlaws game. You can turn around and hit a car head on and have no damage. I hate to say it but the i would rate the damage and flipping as a 2 out of 10. I could sit here for a while and name several obvious things to make it better. I just wish the game makers would take more time on the Sprint car games. There are several good things about the game to. The graphics are pretty good. The way the cars drive isnt bad. The car selection is pretty cool. So if you like sprint car racing or just racing buy this game and try it out.
Rated 9 out of 10 by DirtRacingfan good game but needs more
I have been waiting for a dirt racing game like this for years since my days of playing the old version on my ps2. But i remember some of the older games being more realistic. My biggest negative of the game is the shadows because they really make it hard to see. To make this game better THQ is to improve the lights, sounds, and the graphics. Also you should add some more classes, like stock cars, modifieds, and late models, I mean its a World of Out Law game and I do belive there is another WoO series called the World of Out Law Late Models. So I hope you take mine and all the other comments by others and come out with a more improved dirt racing game.
Rated 0 out of 10 can't wait for this game!
we picked up the ps2 version of this game a couple years back and it was one of the best racing games we had played, the amount of adjustments you could do, and that it has the tracks we are used to, including the one we go to twice a year (Williams Grove). the track looked like it does in person and it was great! i hope that thq does the outlaws justice, i hope that they will allow you to drive as some of the drivers like Schatz and Kinser, as well as some of the local favorites that show up throughout the tour. this might not be the biggest fan base, but it'll be a great addition to our collection!
Rated 4 out of 10 by chuckles12 Ehh... I've played better
You get what you bought it for... No dirt track racing has you swerving side to side heading to the start/finish line under caution or before a green flag. Growing up in a dirt racing family, this game disappointed me and I refer back to the 2002 game. Crashes are unrealistic, AI drivers are horrible, the only competition is head-to-head with other drivers at times. In the 2002 game you had to tune your car in order to perform well, in this game you don't. Damage realism is nothing like what it should be.
Hopefully a new version will come out with realism in thought...
Rated 0 out of 10 by xboxlive-sly1124 Looks like there isn't much improvement in graphics
The graphics in the screen shots look like it'll be close to a PS2 game. I hope that they put some effort into the track conditions. As far as ratbag they did put out world of outlaws 2001 for the ps2 and then a few more titles for the computer then recently went belly up i believe. I wish that they would put time into making these games intense and have good graphics. If they would put a killer dirt circle track racing game out it might help the sport grow by targeting the younger demographics.
Rated 10 out of 10 by Vstreeter17 Finally!
I race cars on dirt tracks ovals and have been for 8 years. I have been an avid gamer for 15+ years. I have always been into the NASCAR games, but wanted to find a racing game that could get me into the dirt track oval racing. I finally found it with this one. Corner entry and setup matters a lot. They made this very realistic. From the tear-offs on the visor, to how much stagger affects the handling, it is all real. It takes finesse and light fingers, but this game was a steal for $12.99.
