5.0 out of 5 stars Not as bad as it sounds
This game is a good game,
I think this becasue it is fun the crashes are good and the detail is superb, the only problem is that people find it hard and difficult becasue they have not played it long enough, you will probably have to play a few adys of pure frustration thinking why did i buy this game? but in the end once you get used to it you will be happy, one...

3.0 out of 5 stars Good game but annoying
Good game...if not rather annoying. To get started you need to pass a series of license tests. Graphics are okay..usual Xbox 360 style racing graphics..the only let down is the poor handling..and the fact that 9 out of 10 times you will find yourself restarting your race out of frustration..its very difficult to handle a car whilst racing in a close pack..and when you do...

This review is from: Nascar 2008: Chase For The Cup (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Good game...if not rather annoying. To get started you need to pass a series of license tests. Graphics are okay..usual Xbox 360 style racing graphics..the only let down is the poor handling..and the fact that 9 out of 10 times you will find yourself restarting your race out of frustration..its very difficult to handle a car whilst racing in a close pack..and when you do eventually muster some super human powers to get you to the front of the pack..you will spin off and crash...theres no two ways about it..whether you manage to to race round the track not making a mistake...another car will eventually pull along side you and cut you up or you will get bumped off the track or into the barrier. Trust me when you've been racing 17 out of 20 laps...this always seems to happen. Very very very hard game...good game...but annoyingly realisitic :)

This game is a good game,
I think this becasue it is fun the crashes are good and the detail is superb, the only problem is that people find it hard and difficult becasue they have not played it long enough, you will probably have to play a few adys of pure frustration thinking why did i buy this game? but in the end once you get used to it you will be happy, one problem there is with it though that the preset settings for the cras when you race are not very good and they need to be changed according to the track, this is realistic but it may be hard to start for new comers but with a bit of trying and testing you will get a good setting.
The game is a good game yes it may have a few things missing and it may be unfair to people with PS3 (Kyle busch and multiplayer) but you can do races at any track you want and have adreanilined feuled driving, the crashes at 180 mph are especially fun, alos i like the idea of the customising car becasue on the old games you had a fair amount of choice but on this one you have so many choices, i like the flames personnaly, The carrer mode is good i like theh introduction of liceses to make it look more realistic but i have to admit I do miss fight to the top that was exceptional but the game is goo you may have a few days of fustration but you will get used to it.

I hope this review is useful, remeber liking the game is own to opinion not everyone likes the same ideas!

1.0 out of 5 stars Oh Dear ...., 8 Sep 2007

This review is from: Nascar 2008: Chase For The Cup (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
When I saw the download on XBox 360 Live I was quite excited , fantastic thoughts of speeding round tracks , fast cars , the atmosphere , then I downloaded it and oh dear .. did the devlopers actually play it? were the play testers members of family? Its like PGR or Forsa never happened. Graphiclly it's PS1 or slow PC , handling is pretty dire too. As ever EA games always has a great florish of sound and lights to lead you into the main event but it stopped there for me. I suppose hardcore Nascar fans will be excited with new names and cars but anyone else will probably be left cold ...

This review is from: Nascar 2008: Chase For The Cup (Xbox 360) (Video Game)
Despite not being a Nascar fan, i was actually looking forward to this, being a fan of motorsport video games.

All i can say right now is very disappointing. Graphically it is poor. Nothing next gen about it at all nor even close to looking as good as Forza 2.
Sounds of the cars are ok, but nothing great, along with unimpressive handling.No real sense of speed either. There is an in-car view along with 3 or 4 other viewpoints.
Expect it to have a lot of content, tracks etc however

Gotta say
After looking forward to the NASCAR game I find it very very disappointing the steering is absolutely awful one little twitch of the stick BOOM your eating wall or grass. As for the graphics well I was expecting a bit more damage whilst traveling at 145mph I crashed into a wall and the car was well still moving no missing wheels or human body parts hanging out the window

sorry but very very poor shame was looking forward to this
