  1. Steering becomes a problem even in analog. The least little movement of the analog stick jerks the car to the side.
  2. The updated roster, extra tracks, and added thunder card elements are nice endowments, but the overall driving experience is muddled enough to frustrate diehards and casual players alike.
  3. Can’t live up to its big brother on the PS2, but don’t let that stop you from playing it, especially if you’re a NASCAR fan. It’s fun, exciting, and very playable, but its hard to keep people who’ve seen the Sistine Chapel to appreciate graffiti.
