    Team control is not a feature I would have asked for in my precious nascar series. Either are most of the additions here - they are truly gratuitous. There's a new mode called 'fight for the cup' in place of career and it's ridiculous. They start you out w/ an underperforming car and some overperforming opposition. The result is several hrs of humble pie while you work Team control is not a feature I would have asked for in my precious nascar series.

I'm all for working your way up the ranks and having some tough opposition, but it's not cool when you can't even come close to sticking w/ the pack even when having perfect laps. Other modes have a more balanced difficulty, but fight for the cup is the most important mode and somewhat ruined. Last years version is the better game. Expand

    I'm a sim racing fan, and I just have to say this game is disappointing. I love nascar sim racing, but this game is way too arcady. The total team control is great for me, because I usually race long races, but if you just like to race shorter races, there is no use for it, making no difference from last year's version.

    !I felt let down after realizing I'll be playing nascar thunder 2004 (a game I've bought twice sense the release two years ago. I bought 2005 the day it came out.

I'm from alabama and I go to talladega twice a year and God willing someone fome EA sports will see this, there aint nothing like drafting and the pack at talladega on sunday that may sound corny to some but common sense fella's when you go the race take in on what see on sunday and make a game. /PS with a good wide in car view!!

    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The shine of the cars metal has been replaced by jaggies, and swapping cars during a race is the most unrealistic feature that EA could have added.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. Expand

  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.
