4.0 out of 5 stars Much Improved From Last Year 10 Aug 2008
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Before I get going: this game is a faithful simulation of the 2008 NASCAR season. NASCAR races, with a couple of exceptions, take place on ovals, so to criticise the game because the idea of racing on ovals doesn't appeal to you is, to say the very least of it, curious. Not into turning left a lot? Move on, this isn't for you.

If you are into turning left, though, NASCAR 09 is a cracking racer. Graphically it's not Gran Turismo, but then NASCAR 09 is displaying 43 cars at a time and does a very good job of that. There's no slowdown, some excellent spot effects and the lighting, particularly as the sun sets (the sun moves through the sky as you race, so even in a day race the shadows will lengthen) is generally excellent. The twitchy controls and hugely aggressive AI of NASCAR 08 are gone, and in their place are much more precise steering, throttle and brake inputs and AI that races, for the most part, cleanly and fairly.

Wrinkles? As other reviewers have said, the game is incompatible with the US release, so no racing the Americans online, which is ridiculous when you consider where NASCAR races. The road course AI has hotspots on each track where it'll cause a caution every couple of laps (the downloadable Montreal being an especially trying exercise in frustration), and there are a couple of tracks where you'll be unbeatable once you've got somewhere close to maxing out the performance points you can apply to your car. In spite of that, NASCAR 09 is worth at least a rental for most, and should be an instant buy for those with a real interest in US motorsport.

5.0 out of 5 stars If you love Nascar you'll love this! 6 Sep 2009
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I cant get enough of this game. The commentary is spot on and the crash replay feature is amazing. I can understand that people who do not appreciate Nascar should probably not bother looking at this game, but that is their loss since this is by far one of the most accomplished racing games of recent years. If you love Nascar you will love this!

This version of the game has an excellent racing engine. Almost the perfect Nascar game. Now get on and use this to make an Indycar game!

4.0 out of 5 stars Very good 27 Feb 2013
Platform for Display:Xbox 360|Verified Purchase
I think that NASCAR 09 is a good simulation of pack racing, the handling isn’t great but a few adjustments to your car set up may help, graphics are good also, but only wish we had the ‘NASCAR the game inside line’ on xbox 360 over hear, it’s the latest one but this one will do until they release a new version of the game over hear.
