Like any EA NASCAR game, terrible.Every game made by EA is either uninteresting or terribly made, except Burnout Paradise. Enough said.

Great game, however many flaws.There are very many flaws, considering of tire marks in the grass, etc. Overall I give it a 10 because its better than 09, and its good.

Horable Game Two Thumbs way down.I must have played every nascar game since Nascar 2000 on the PS1; The main problem with this game is the never ending challenges It would be one thing if they were easy to complete but they're not(even on rookie). Adding to the problems are the physics. It is soo easy to flip/barrow roll you car(without really trying). An example of this is at the short tracks such as Martinsville and Bristol, its soo easy to barrow roll you car in the game by barely touching the analog stick. In real life you never see a car barrow roll at these tracks. If you want a challenge that would make you want to pull your hair out this is it. else try Nascar 09 for the next gen systems or almost any nascar game (from thunder 2004 to nascar 07) for the last gen systems(ps2, xbox).

This game is boringOk, this game is fine for the first week or less, but when you play it after 1 week you will feel that this game sucks, you dont have the control of the car, the sound sucks, is the same sound when you are running at 10 miles per hour and 200 miles per hour, theres no difference, Im waiting for the new nascar, THIS GAME SUCKS.

Vey good Nascar GameI bought this game because I've never seen a NASCAR Game before this one. I liked the car customazation because I thought that is a big veriety. The one part I don't like is the cars are not updated as god as I would have liked them. I think these graphics are very good because you can see almost everything in the car. You have three modes that you can choose from driver, Outside or windsheild. I personally chose the outside because then oyu can see all the stuff around you. I like how when you crash your car gets smashed up because in real life your car can get damaged and they have it in the game. I would like the challange to be better because the game is way to hard even on easy. I liked the pit row because in the game you can control the pit stop by choosing how much of stuff you want. But I would like to have seen the pit crew faster then it is. I would also like to have seen More drivers in the game. In the begining of the came I don't like that mini tutorial but overall very good game.
