NASCAR 2011: The Game (PlayStation 3)

 

Naysayers dismiss driving in a NASCAR game as simply "turning left," but series enthusiasts know that there's more to it than that. Driving with 42 others in a NASCAR race demands focus and precision, and when it's running on all cylinders, NASCAR...

I have to admit, right out of the gate, that I am not adie-hard NASCAR fan. I enjoy watching the big races, and follow the points standings when I'm surfing ESPN.com. I think it's a great sport, and obviously it has massive appeal to the American...

NASCAR 2011: The Game lays an excellent foundation for future iterations in the series. The arcade-style racing is engaging and the sense of speed is executed beautifully. However, the all-too-simple Career mode and somewhat broken online play hold the...

As a first try out of the gate for Eutechnyx, NASCAR 2011: The Game holds up moderately well. That being said, they will need to work on building a more in-depth career mode and a much smoother multiplayer experience if they really want the franchise...

NASCAR 2011: The Game Review

 

Surprisingly engaging, but far too easily spun-out.

The race physics feel right, toggle-able assists help novice racers

AI is universally shoddy, uneven difficulty

The racing gameplay at its core is fantastic and entertaining. People unfamiliar with NASCAR will find that the assists let them get behind the wheel easily, but both novices and veterans alike will find a lot of fault with just how uneven and broken...

If you watch a NASCAR race, there's always that one car. It's the car that seems to putter around the track in 25th place all day long, running just well enough to not drop back to last or get lapped...

Good graphics ; Deep tuning ability ; Solid control ; Races are fun once you get the difficulty down

Technical issues ; Uneven AI/Difficulty ; Mediocre Paint Scheme creator ; General lack of polish

If you watch a NASCAR race, there’s always that one car. It’s the car that seems to putter around the track in 25th place all day long, running just well enough to not drop back to last or get lapped, but not well enough to really run with the big...

NASCAR 2011: The Game review

 

It has been since 2009 that a NASCAR game sped its way onto home consoles. Electronic Arts, as it has done with college football and the NFL, signed an exclusive agreement with NASCAR in 2003. Due to poor sales, the company decided not to renew the...

If turning left is your idea of fun, NASCAR 2011: The Game should be on your wish list. Gearheads will enjoy the fact that you can tweak the tuning options. Normal gamers could probably care less, which is why it is a good thing that the game...

It's strange that exactly 10 years ago I was not a fan of NASCAR. I was one of those who fell under the stereotype that is was nothing but going around in circles with no excitement whatsoever. Then came the 2001 Daytona 500, which many fans remember...

CONS: ...which means you're stuck with the 2010 season until then. NASTY glitches abound. Bump drafting by AI in the plate tracks way too unforgiving. Events that should result in a caution in NASCAR for real do not happen in the game! Running out of...

NASCAR 2011: The Game (Xbox 360) Review

 

Eutechnyx honks their own horn declaring this NASCAR reprisal as the “Most Realistic NASCAR game ever developed.” So as we head into the first turn, we will see if NASCAR 2011: The Game is “NASCAR Revolutionized” or simply running on four flats.

when your behind the wheel, NASCAR feels great ; some extra challenges help to keep you engaged ; lots of customizable options for each track

celebration animations are severally weak ; career mode could of been more focused ; online department is lacking

Feeling rushed out of the gate, NASCAR 2011 is functional, not flushed out. The poor online set-up and the lack of a "real" career progression will likely keep you from returning the track once you have worked your way through a season of racing. While...

Graphics: 9/10 Gameplay: 6.5/10 Wrecks: 2.5/10 Damage:3/10

Good Graphics

No Cautions, People Get Penalties For No Reason, No Mirror, Unrealistic Damage & Wrecks, Etc

A little disappointed. Not what I was expecting

 

I am a huge Nascar fan and was a little disappointed with the game especially with all the hype that surrounded its release. Extrememly disappointed in the online function play. What good is the option to play online if it crashes on you 80% of the...

Fun game to play when working right

Online play is HORRIBLE!!! Do not attempt a race with more than 5 people in it. Once the race starts cars are automatically crashing into each other and the car will not move. Painting your own car is very bland and no instructions. Graphics sub-par. Comp
