  1. Like any other sports title, NASCAR 07 isn’t going to make converts of the uninitiated, but it’s a remarkably immersive game experience for the stock car racing faithful, and that lands NASCAR 07 for the PSP on victory lane and not pit row.
  2. A few missteps here and there doesn’t hurt the enjoyment that the game offers, but they should be a focal point for EA Tiburon to focus on for next year’s game.
  3. NASCAR is a deep and enjoyable game that sacrifices little in the transition from consoles to the PSP.
  4. 68
    The lack of better analog support (which is a hardware issue) and the fact that you can't use a steering wheel may impair the experience for hardcore fans, but stock car junkies who simply want to jump in and speed around the track a number of times will find a fair bit to like here.
  5. If you own a PS2 or Xbox then that would be the format of choice, but if you need to take your racing on the road or want to explore the PSP-exclusive features then you might just want to take NASCAR for a spin around the track.
  6. It doesn’t have all the bells and whistles of its console counterpart, but if you need a portable NASCAR fix, this game will do.
  7. While the lack of decent multiplayer is a dim-witted compromise, the Adhoc mode available is quite well featured.

    Clunky controls made me forget it. Sad, it could be an interesting game.
