Nascar 08
3 Star Review   By member Crefoo - Apr 17, 2008   

Strengths: Great graphics. The Chase mode brings you up to speed and introduces you to tracks well.

Weakness: Sensitive controls - you will need to change the control options like linearity with a controller

I've spent the last month playing this game (renting it a couple of times) and I'm going to purchase it soon. It's not a simple game to pick up and run with, but can be lots of fun when you get used to it. It takes lots of patience to keep the car under you, but you can really make use of subtle throttle variations to manage the car. Any attempt to turn right (counter-steer when you get loose or just to counteract the stagger of the car on a straight) will probably end up in the wall, and it's quite frustrating. The AI is also hard to deal with. If you're running in a pack and being patient to make a clean pass, any car behind you that is faster will ram, and ram, and ram until you push someone out of the way or spin. The online races haven't proven to hold together well, but it's been fun the few that have held up to get away from the AI

1 Star Review   By member robert6869 - Jul 27, 2007   

Strengths: NICE GRAPHICS THATS ABOUT ALL.

Weakness: UNDRIVABLE WITH WIRELESS CONTROLLER

EA SPORTS REALLY DROP THE BALL ON THIS ONE, I HAVE BEEN PLAYING THIER NASCAR SERIES GAMES SINCE 2001 AND THIS IS BY FAR THE WORST. I HAVE PLAYED AROUND WITH THIS GAME SINCE IT CAME OUT AND STILL HAVE NOT FOUND ANY SETTINGS THAT WOULD GIVE YOU GOOD CONTROLL OF THE CAR. I HAVE NOT PURCHASED THE DRIVING WHEEL FOR THE XBOX 360 SO I CANNOT SPEAK FOR HOW THAT WORKS, FRANKLEY AFTER SPENDING 60 BUCKS FOR THIS GAME IT IS A LITTLE CRAZY TO HAVE TO PURCHASE A $120.00 DOLLAR WHEEL JUST TO PLAY THIS GAME. MY ADVICE RENT THIS GAME BEFORE YOU BUY, DON'T BE A VICTIM OF EA SPORTS.
