I am a huge Nascar fan and own every game that has come out since the "Thunder" series started back in 2002. I bought Nascar 08 for the ps2 last fall and was appalled by how unreal it was. Then, I bought an xbox 360 and rebought it for that. And what a difference it made! It is one of the best racers I have ever played. It is as real as a simulation can get on a console. The setup menus are very in depth and you can adjust the car however you like. There are also, user friendly sliders to set up your car if you are new to the sport and don't know all of the terminology. The car list is great for the cup series but can't be said for the other two divisions. Sure, there are many well known faces in the National series and Truck series put into the game but are very limited and most of the field is made up of cpu generated cars with fake drivers. Its still a fulfilling experience though. All of the Cup series tracks are on the game but EA has still not included new and old circuits that have been raced on for a number of years by the NNS and truck series such as Memphis and Gateway. The COT is fun to drive when you are trying to hustle it around a corner right on the line of losing it and the sense of speed is great. EA also brought back Day to Night races where the sky turns to night as the race progresses instead of the static weather in the last couple titles. This is a must buy for any Hardcore Nascar fan or someone looking for a realistic racer with lots of options. You will have a great time with this 360 title.
