    This is the best simulation of NASCAR racing yet.

    The multiplayer component and hardcore difficulty settings ensure you won't be done with this one anytime soon, unless you just tire of NASCAR itself.
  3. Despite the annoying bugs NASCAR Heat is now the new King of NASCAR racing games. Excuse me. I think I hear Lynrd Skynrds' White Knuckle Ride on my jukebox. I've got to go beat the Heat.

    Definitely flawed, but still a serious threat to Papyrus' stranglehold. [Dec 2000, p.145]
  5. The lack of a matchmaking service surely will make racing against real-life opponents a little difficult but visually, the game is spectacular and with most of the licenses in place, NASCAR Heat is an enjoyable ride.
  6. Heat offers a brutally honest driving experience, but with simplistic damage modeling.
  7. Decent graphics and sound, and a full complement of NASCAR drivers and cars, gives the game initial appeal, but questionable gameplay ensures limited long-term usage.

    Game is great if you use expert mode. Very realistic, could use help in normal/arcade mode. Overall this is one of the best.
