    This is a great game if you really understand the sport, to the layman it may look the same as '07 but the small tweaks and changes EA has made, help bring this years version of the game even closer to the real thing.

    PS2 version isnt as good as x box. I know we cant have the gaphics but you could have at least put the same car set up options. xbox has a ton more things to tweak. also the "earn your stripes" blows compared to the x box.

  1. NASCAR 08 isn't a bad game; in fact, it's fun once you get the hang of it. Its biggest problem is that it's not noticeably better than last year's game and there aren't any compelling new features. If you own any NASCAR game from the past few years, you might as well stick with that one.

    The problem with 08 is that it's not all that different from 07. Other than the chance to jump behind the wheel of the Car of Tomorrow or the ability to save races at any point -- which is cool -- there's not a whole lot that's shiny and new about it.

    Mostly just really tedious. [Sept 2007, p.91]
