    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 ...

    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 t...

    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 game...

    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 an...

    True thought put into improving the franchise.

    Rated on July 26, 2007 by friskitt

    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 l...

    Rated on July 26, 2007 by TransAmSD455

    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 eve...

    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 ac...

    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 dose...
