  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.

    Every year the NASCAR series seems to emphasize a different aspect of the sport. But this year, the focus is back where it belongs: on the driving and on-track competition. [Nov. 2006, p.102]

    The one thing that makes this game worth it to NASCAR rubes like you and me is that the new speed blur makes side-by-side racing pretty damn cool. [Oct. 2006, p.94]
  4. NASCAR 07 is a game built almost exclusively for the hardcore NASCAR racing fan.
  5. For those of you that are die-hard NASCAR fans, you’ll have to pick this up for the updated (but slightly out of date) roster, and the new features put in are decent. However, if you’re looking for a ground-breaking NASCAR title, you’ll probably be disappointed with this release.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. The game offers enough deep gameplay to keep racing enthusiasts happy, but the problem is it's generally the exact same experience that was offered a year ago.
  9. 75
    In its own way, NASCAR 07 also replicates the sport community of NASCAR extremely well. As for racing, it's still not that fast of a game, although the controls have tightened up, and though it sounds silly, out of car mano-a- mano driver fisticuffs would have added that spark this year's game seems to be missing.

    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. Full Review »

    playing this game makes you feel like a red neck looser, even if you are the coolest and most sophisticated guy on earth, but then...why wouldplaying this game makes you feel like a red neck looser, even if you are the coolest and most sophisticated guy on earth, but then...why would you buy this game?...hmmm. interesting. year after year they come up with this thing and i decided to have a go at it this year. when i was playing it, i thought i was going blind and then i realized that it was the new "blur" effect that they use to make you think you are going fast...it fails...you think you are going blind. however, there are lot of things here to keep somebody interested, the crashes are cool...im not gona kill myself trying to explain why i gave a nice 7 grade for this thing...rent it and play it, its not all that bad.
