    Unless you're some kind of Jeff Gordon superfan, there's quite literally nothing of worth to discover in NASCAR 09 that couldn't be gleaned from, you guessed it, NASCAR 08.

    It is a good game for the fact that it has all four series from the last ones and it has online, practically the same modes that even thoughIt is a good game for the fact that it has all four series from the last ones and it has online, practically the same modes that even though aren't in depth(neither were the last ones) It's not going get better. especially since it's not going to be made for the ps2 any more. I think that the graphics are better, but I think that there's plenty more to add. i played an older version in the 2000's and it had challenges this game has in race challenges but no side challenges. the challenges consist of the following for every track Win-win without rewind-pass so many cars and then- lap five cars. you become the champion. Geff gordon doesn't even talk to you, but it shows his picture and text in a box. Gran turismo four had three-d speople so why couldn't nascar 09. They should have taken their time with it enstead of hurry it out the door b-cuz it's the last game in the ps2 franchise. looks like if you spent your money as I did you'll be stuck with it until you get a ps3 Collapse
