NASCAR 08 (Xbox 360)

 

NASCAR 08 is a decent racer, but it feels like a classic example of a game where the developer put in limited effort because of the lack of competition.

NASCAR 08 Xbox 360 Review

 

The bumpin' and grindin' is egregious, as is the lack of a career mode, but the NASCAR racing action is like riding a skeleton horse through the gates of hell!

Driving a racecar, and just "turning left," is more difficult that it looks. If that's the theme EA was shooting for with NASCAR 08, they are spot-on. Fortunately, there are enough control settings and vehicle modifications for users to find a set up...

Talladega Nightmare

You can go fast!; Chase is good for newbies

But it's not actually a career mode; Mixed to actually bad graphics; No stats; No point

Listen! If you're a fan of the sport and you own a set of NASCAR Underoos for each day of the week, then you already own the game and you just came here to write me hate mail. But for those of us looking for a better more improved NASCAR driving...

Underachieving. On race day, it can leave you dead last in a field of 43 cars, but what if you have no competition? What if you could simply “phone it in” and still be successful? Without any competition, you could be complacent and rest on your...

Still high-octane, even if the tires are wearing a little thin

All the official cars and tracks ; Good looks, adjustable controls ; Tweaking the car setup

Spotty opponent behavior ; Gutted career mode ; No offline multiplayer

Unfortunately, when you get onto the track, you'll notice that the other drivers still don't behave quite as intelligently as they could, and sometimes race in ways a real-world driver never would - forcing you in turn to either drive more riskily than...

NASCAR 08 Game Review - Xbox 360

 

While NASCAR 08 may be a fine game for the most part, it's the repetitive workload required to get into the meat of The Chase mode that'll drive people away quickly, if not the loose steering controls that require adjustment to get a good grip on the...

You're desperate for next-gen NASCAR action

You don't like to waste hours just to get to the fun stuff

Stock car drivers discovered drafting in the 1959 Daytona 500, which allowed them to drive faster if two or more cars lined up and reduced the wind resistance of the entire line, allowing them to drive faster than if they didn't coordinate

But the man can drive

NASCAR 08

 

EA has had two years since the launch of the Xbox 360 to develop the first NASCAR game for the system. Normally one would think that this would give EA tons of time to perfect the game and pack it with features and goodies. Unfortunately, what we have...

Despite its flaws, NASCAR 08 has a lot of good in it. NASCAR games should be hard, and this one definitely is. It will test your patience, but if you stick it out and master it, it can be very rewarding. However, it does not have much depth, and unless...

NASCAR 08 Review (Xbox 360)

 

There's a new phenomenon that has cropped up in the past few years in the world of gaming that I like to call the “Next Gen Placeholder.” These NGP's, as I like to call them, are not a creature that is unique to one system, genre or developer, but...

Rec-room racers begin their journey to the NASCAR Nextel Cup Series in NASCAR 08 as they develop skills and earn licenses and contracts. Gamers learn the tricks of the trade in The Chase mode where each challenge teaches players an element of NASCAR racin
