    With the all new voice recognition you can turn the rearview mirron on, hud on, ask you pit crew who the leader is, ask for fuel at your next pit stop, etc. The problem is that all this is happening when you are not speaking into your communicator. The voice recognition does not work properly. The graphics are worse than previous versions.

The voice recognition does not work properly. The graphics are worse than previous versions. The shine of the cars metal has been replaced by jaggies, and swapping cars during a race is the most unrealistic feature that EA could have added. I traded the game for NASCAR Thunder 2004 (luckily found it new) which is a pure racing game. Quite simply, EA ruined this years version. This game is not even worth renting. Expand

    The biggest wreck isn't on the track in NASCAR 06 Total Team Control, it's what EA did to this once great series. The graphics are lousy, unless you like jaggies. The voice recognition does not work, and swapping cars is the most absurd feature that EA could have added to the series. And to totally ruin the game, the cars steering is way too over-sensitive.

If you like pure racing then get NASCAR Thunder 2004. If online is important then get last years version but avoid this dismal failure at all costs. I gave the game a score of 1 because the cockpit view is back this year. That is the only aspect of the game that EA got right this year. BY the way EA, next year give us the option to turn the silly cartoon bubble off that appears over other cars. Collapse

  1. EA rejuvenates the genre with the brilliant execution of team play via voice recognition, and rounding it off with a solid Xbox Live support.
  2. NASCAR 06: Total Team Control isn't able to surpass the overall greatness of last year's game but with all the new additions this is one is downright enjoyable and a step in the right direction for the series.
  3. The team control aspect does get addicting and hard to put down. The fact that the game can be adjusted for each level of experience is also an added bonus.
