  1. If you’re looking to satisfy your NASCAR craving, or you simply want to get away from the typical driving games, NASCAR SimRacing improves greatly upon previous NASCAR titles.

    Though we've managed to tune the game, the clunky interface and hidden Sim settings are definitely a turn-off.

    This game is awful! There are bugs throughout the entire game. Yellow Flags dont work correctly, the one patch ea came out with was pitiful. This game is awful! There are bugs throughout the entire game. Yellow Flags dont work correctly, the one patch ea came out with was pitiful. Gamespy multiplayer has major issues of removing your loging and not allowing a player to ever return. You have to go and buy another game and use a totally different email, and login. EA Sports has no technical support to speak of. I am in the third day of their "24hr" response, and still nothing. Dont buy this game!! Its a waste of money. Full Review »

You can change everything from sponser to track bar setting to left rear tire pressure. There are 50-60 settings you can change before each race. I dont know how it can be anymore realistic than that. I guess all you haters just want static racing where you can sit down in an arcade and race away. Full Review »
