World of Outlaws: Sprint Cars
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!
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.
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.
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.
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...
Been waiting since 2002

Good, but Something is Missing
This game is good, but I wish they would add more than just the sprint cars. I would like to have seen more classes, such as the Late Models, the Mini Sprints, Modifieds, etc. The cars in this game are also really hard to drive. It's hard to keep them from spinnig out in the corners. If you aren't very good at racing games, this game is not for you.
better be great
this better be good because i realy like dirt racing games like these
It's a Racing game
If you like challeging racing games then this is a good one, I will say it will take you a while to get used to how to control a sprint race car on dirt even if you done it in the past. like someone else said the best Dirt Track racing games were for Rat Bag, and do I still enjoy them today, the only problem is windows have update since the orginal's were made "dirt Track Racing 1 & 2 Sprint Car Racing 1 &2, this game looks alot like Sprint Car Racing from Rat Bag (could be a knock off or copied from their software), but it definately is not as good all though I will say drive the sprint Cars in this game is alot more challaging than the one from Rat Bag, but you can't compare it to a windows version game, you could race in different levels of sprint cars, alot of tracks and basically the game would never endyou could keep racing because it would go to another year of racing after you finished the current years racing, you could win 2 -3 catogies of racing in the same year if you watched dthe race dates, which made that game better in one way, but like I said this game will really challenge your true driving skills on dirt, I haven't seen a tougher game yet and for the price it's a great game what do you expect for 20 bucks? I wished someone would go back to the drawing board and make a game where you could start out racing go-carts when you are like 10yrs old and as you progress in age you can progress in racing to all types of racing, dirt dike, atv, local dirt track's with 4cyl's, and v-8's all the way from stock race cars to modified and sprints, though in some straight drag racing if you so choose to, and then you can join into nascar, including truck racing. Now that would be a real life racing game where you can start of young and grow into the sport of racing, maybe even for the kicks of it they could through is some street car racing whikle you are a teenager (like some teens have done) like in srs and even have cops chase you, just a truelly good al around racing game that could envolve all types of racing avaliable to the play as the avatar grows up and gets better at racing. But probaly with all that they would have to make a windows game only, but that wouldn't bother me i like windows games as well, a true racer at heart, aslways have been always will be, although I do like other games as well. But there just needs to be a truely great racing game and they need to come as close as they can to the Rat Bag games. Well enough said, like I said if you like challeging racing games this one shouldn't disappoint you to much, it is very hard to get the hang of it and kept it going, the faster your sprint car is the harder it is to handle, just like real life, in that way this game is great!
