    Driving physics are as intuitive as they are challenging. Opponents do a good job of advancing through thick traffic, although they do tend to cause unfortunate accidents.
  2. Although last year's NASCAR The Game 2011 was a credible effort, Inside Line is the first NASCAR racing game in years that feels like someone cared. [Holiday 2012, p.72]

That said, sadly, I'm giving it a ZERO out of ten - because it's just shockingly poor. The graphics are ok - physics, handling, sound and everything else about this game are dreadful. What were the developers thinking of? Dreadful game. In summary: BAD. VERY, VERY BAD. Full Review »

As with any game release, there are a few issues, but Eutechnyx as been working with the community since day 1 to find the issues and prepare a patch. Even without said patch, the game is far more enjoyable than NTG11 was with Patch #3.

    Most importantly, the "Champion" difficulty is actually hard. AI will race multiple lines and be aggressive. They will bumpdraft you properly. And in the end, you will be challenged to place well (or win) on Champion difficulty. Couldn't have really asked for more.

    This is a half-hearted attempted for putting out a NASCAR game.

First and foremost, the career mode is severely lacking - you have no options of designing your car (unless you want to use your car in a single player race (ie. not career mode)). The AI is trash, if you qualify on the pole - it's nearly impossible to lose the race. Bumping/rubbing/tapping an AI is 100% of the time going to cause a crash and a caution, so passing on short tracks is nearly impossible. This game is pathetic. Full Review »
