Summary:A blend of arcade and simulation games, 2002's edition of Heat features Championship Race, Beat-the-Heat, and Race-the-Pro modes utilizing 25 Winston Cup drivers (including Gordon, Wallace, Bobby Labonte) and 19 real-world NASCAR tracks.
If you can handle the twitchy racing style of the expert mode, the tuning options are numerous. The game features a good damage model, and the support of the Logitech force feedback wheel adds to the realism of the game.
While it is to some degree better than "Nascar 2001," in many ways it is almost the same game (aside from the new foil cover). It features the same oval tracks, same types of cars and the same types of options.
