    Compared to D2D, "Thunder's" cars don't handle as smoothly and its Career mode is heavy on complexity and short on fun. [Dec 2002, p.194]

    I'm sold - give this game the checkered flag.

    The Caraeer mode's progression of cars (including the Craftsman Truck series) is a brilliant idea that provides a lifetime of racing. [Nov 2002, p.128]

    The thrill of careening around turns surrounded by dozens of competitors? Check. A great simulation of the long road to victory? Check. Spectacularly destructive wipeouts? Check, just no fire.

    Substance over style is the philosophy behind this game. [Holiday 2002, p.54]

    A huge improvement over last year's "Heat," but still not good enough to quiet EA's "Thunder." [Dec 2002, p.204]

    When it comes down to it, all four car types feel floaty - you never really feel attached to the ground. [Dec 2002, p.164]

    Overall, the game is great. I think having the four different series to race makes this game mych more enjoyable than thunder. My only Overall, the game is great. I think having the four different series to race makes this game mych more enjoyable than thunder. My only disappointment is that there were some of the premier racers that were left out of the cup series lineup, like Bill Elliot. This guy was amazing in 2002. Collapse
