    It’s a fun game with a deep Career Mode and it still manages to do a good job of capturing stock car racing in game form. PC would be the visual preference, but with some other options on PC for stock car racing, it may take a back seat. The lack of an online community to race against on PC is also alarming.

    I did ask myself one question at the end of it all, would I suggest this title for others to play? The answer is well, yes. It comes down to your play style and expectations from a racing game. If you are looking for a realistic racing sim that will put you in the action then I do suggest this title. If you get frustrated easily with keeping that perfect line you may want to steer clear of this title or be prepared to use lower difficulty and move up as you progress.

    Although not awful, NASCAR Heat 5 feels like a rehashed version of its already underwhelming predecessor. The small quality of life improvements do not make up for its disappointing lack of any meaningful innovation.

    It's a very mediocre game. Quite bad graphics for 2020, very sticky and unpleasant driving, boring career mode.

    WOW, was this game a waste of my time, this has to be the most underwhelmed i've ever felt by a game. There is no depth in this game, theWOW, was this game a waste of my time, this has to be the most underwhelmed i've ever felt by a game. There is no depth in this game, the driving is not rewarding at all. The career mode is boring. The physics feel cheap. The only fun I had was driving backwards during a practice session because any contact with an oncoming car will cause you to be flung like 300m in the air. The AI is a joke.

    The entire game feels like a cheap mobile game rip-off. I hope that Ignition is actually good unlike this garbage.
