What Gamespot Users have to say about NASCAR 08

  • Review Score:1

    I've played all the nascar race games and I've got to tell you NASCAR 08 Sucks!

    Don't waste your money on NASCAR 08 EA Sports really dropped the ball on this one! Nothing about this game is fun, its very difficult to play if not impossible. Before you can race in the cup series you must pass a seri... Read Full Review

    NASCAR '08 is ALMOST there....

    Nice to see that EA is FINALLY "getting in gear" as far as the NASCAR brand is concerned. However...all is not perfect in "left-turn land". The graphics and playability are smack on...almost to the point of PC si... Read Full Review

    It's good overall, but it's harder than it looks...O_o;;

    Ok, going from NASCAR 07 to NASCAR 08 is a big change, since: one, next gen and two, the realism is sorta cracked up...it's much much harder than what one is used to, if you played the old NASCAR games. Trust me when I s... Read Full Review

    Rent it before purchasing

    Steering is very awkward and the graphics are disappointing. I'm a PC gamer usually and have found the PS3 controller works great on other driving games. I use the PS3 controller for GT2 and DiRT and the steering is li... Read Full Review

    True thought put into improving the franchise.

    I'll admit... I go out and buy EA's NASCAR franchise each and every year. I'm a NASCAR fan, and a gaming fan, so it only seems natural for me to do so. I'll be the first to admit, though, that the last several years I'... Read Full Review

    A new NASCAR game.

    After NASCAR 04, with all the expanding EA attempted to do on the series, i felt the series was dead. graphics, game play name it, was becoming more and more shallow. In fact i was so close to not even touching NASCAR 08... Read Full Review

    Great example of how hard NASCAR really is. Makes u get into the "Fine Tuning" process...

    The thing that separates all the other games form this one is the simulations style. On all of the older games u just barrel it down into the corner and hold the stick to the left. In this game you actually have to me sm... Read Full Review

    I'm a big Nascar and Formula 1 fan. But All I got to say is this game just isn't what I thinking it was going to be. Formula 1 for the PS3 was much, much better for a Motorracing. The thing is EA dosen't know what there ... Read Full Review
