           I Love It !!!

          | | See all DingDong1984's reviews (1)

          As a new NASCAR fan (Due to JPM Moving into stock car racing) i thought i'd buy this game, i must admit i was a bit worried at first as last year i bought 08 and the steering was horrendous (I use D-Pad) however, i thought why not, buy it, so i did, i couldn't use the D-Pad again but the steering is so much better on 09 i'm now used to using the joystick !! The graphics are great, the gameplay is good as are crashes and pit stops etc... I would really recommend this game to anyone who's thinking of buying it, The only downside is you must play this game in HD as normal analogue isn't brill but still very playable. Come on you NSCAR fans, don't listen to those who slam this game... Buy it, Its great !!!

           Actually very very good

          As a Formula One fan, just like almost everyone outside the US, we find NASCAR extremely dull. I had played just one previous NASCAR title on the PS1 and it was the most shoddy racing game I ever played, so when I decided to purchase NASCAR 09, it was more of a risk than anything else. The risk paid off. The business of actually driving is very good and its critical to get at least a decent set up for the track you are on. Setting up a car itself to compete takes time, but somewhat rewarding. You can check on many things including where your tyres wear, its temperature in the centre, inside and outside of each tyre, oil and water temperatures, front and rear weight and more. The AI will be aggressive and try to pass, you do need to be consistant and like another poster commented, tyre managment is key. Handling also changes as races go on which is realistic. Im hard pressed to find faults worth pointing out because you really do need to drive in a realistic and proper manner, keeping your nose clean, adjusting your style as handling changes and as the race progresses. I would have liked it more if EA let you drive the caution laps yourself for a little added realism. I don't even really like NASCAR much at all, but this game is tops.

          I'm new to nascar so i thought i get the game to try and get an idea of the teams , driver etc.... And what a great experience i had, the game is excellent with great graphics from the crowd down to scratch marks up the car. It's got many options and the paint booth is a great touch so you can go and edit your car to what you want at any time. Racing it's self is great with realistic racing ,engine faliure's and blow outs at random times during a race.
          Highly reccomended!!!!!!!

           Much, much better.

          I bought NASCAR 09 with trepidation as the 2008 version was awful, with terrible AI. However I was pleasantl;y surprised with NASCAR 09 as a whole.

          The handling model had been changed slightly to give the cars an extremely driveable feel. And once I had binned off my previous NASCAR game driving style and decided to drive like a real driver, i found it a great challenge and a fun experience. Yes, to some, NASCAR is 'dull', but I'd translate that into a need to be consistent.

          Also, at the end of a 100 lap race that you have been leading most of the way through, when you are on worn tyres being caught by a rival it turns into an exhilarating experience. The AI is aggressive and will try to overtake you, but you need a decent setup to even compete with the leaders on most tracks. Managing the tyres is key to success.

          There are still issues though. The AI is terrible on road courses, the lack of official car manufacturers is disappointing, the damage model is shoddy compared to true next gen games, and it can be difficult for new players initially.

          I'd recommend it for fans of NASCAR or for people wanting a different driving challenge. Especially if you can get it for less than 20 quid. :) They aren't making another one in 2010, so grab this while you can.
