  1. Gameplay additions this year feature just a few new components – driver ratings, the Adrenaline Meter, adjustable car handling – and they really turn out to be tweaks instead of innovations.
  2. If I were a NASCAR fan, I'd be happy with the advancements and give this one a go.
  3. It gives you an opportunity to Fight To the Top of the NASCAR tier, but focuses more on driving mechanics, real-time damage and wear, handling, and momentum than ever before, all of which work in its favor.
  4. What is my biggest complaint with NASCAR 07? Simply put, if you've played "NASCAR 06: Total Team Control," you will likely be bored with NASCAR 07.
  5. If you're in the market for American-style speed and weeks of tough round the track action, this one has your name all over it.
  6. Another year, another NASCAR. The sparse updates and thin lacquer are well done, but like their preceding adjectives: meager.

    But mostly, the game is so lacking in charisma and character that the miles sort of tick away, leaving less impact than a skid mark and the smell of burnt rubber.

    Best console NASCAR game yet (and I've played them all). EA has made many small refinements, virtually all of which are great. It's Best console NASCAR game yet (and I've played them all). EA has made many small refinements, virtually all of which are great. It's nice to see that they've toned down the importance of Team Control (it's just not useful and not realistic at all) while leaving it in for those that like it, and the customizable level of speed blur is a really nice touch. Being able to jump straight into a Busch or Cup Series ride at the start is also a welcome addition... no more slogging through the lower series! 9.6 out of 10. Expand

    There is NOTHING good about this game at all. It's 2006 with a different dude on the cover. NR03 is still THE BEST Nascar game EVER There is NOTHING good about this game at all. It's 2006 with a different dude on the cover. NR03 is still THE BEST Nascar game EVER Made. and 08 is a little better and well I'm talking about it from me it gets a 4/10. We NEED a REAL Company back making Nascar games who KNOW what they are doing and CARE about it. People complain about Carl not being in the game it's cause he doesn't want to be in a game that sucks so much. Jr, Harvick, Hamlin to name a few STILL today (like me and millions of other people) play NR03 cause it's THE BEST Game EVER made. Expand
