  1. Minus the graphics, NASCAR '07 is just as solid as it's predecessors. The skill points are nice, as are the driver attributes. And a new story mode is always good.
  2. NASCAR 07 is a game built almost exclusively for the hardcore NASCAR racing fan.
  3. Most NASCAR fans will enjoy this year’s version, but if they have 06, which they likely do, there might not be much reason to upgrade.

    Once you get over the initially steep learning curve in handling the cars, you'll find yourself left with a surprisingly deep and entertaining racing experience.
  5. A rehashed, lackluster game hidden behind the high-energy, let's-kick-some-butt-and-chug-some-beer rock music blaring at you from the title screen.

    If you're looking for a game that understands NASCAR and implements most of what people enjoy about it then you'll be happy with this offering - unless of course you played the last one.

    Overflowing with licensed material but severely lacking what it needs the most: involving and exhilarating racing action with decent smash-ups. [Christmas 2006, p.96]

    Change in accelerator and brake controls left me scratching my head... I mean come on, trigger buttons? Good if yet grainy graphics. I hardly Change in accelerator and brake controls left me scratching my head... I mean come on, trigger buttons? Good if yet grainy graphics. I hardly notice the "speed blur" so I can't expound on it more. This game does excel in one specific area - the actual racing. The car handling and the AI of the other cars is spot on. Now when you are in a tight pack of cars there is no feeling of helplessness as you lose control of your ride. In fact it feels like you think it must feel....incredible! I really would love some form of a replay mode. Overall a decent progression in the series, nothing mind blowing, but solid. Expand
