  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. On one hand, the gameplay is good and the presentation is solid but there isn’t a whole lot of new content in the game to appease franchise veterans. On the other, the game doesn’t make itself readily accessible to newcomers.
  4. NASCAR 07 is a good last hurrah on the PS2. [Oct. 2006, p.87]
  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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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]
