    NASCAR 09 is a great game. There's a few problems here and there, but nothing big.

    I got NASCAR 09 on June 11th 2008 and surprisingly there was alot of people waiting for it! Before it came out I watched all the videos of it and to me it looked like the same as NASCAR 08. When the demo came out I loved... Read Full Review

    Awesome, killer sparkling improvement from Nascar 08.

    Nascar 09 has a big vibe that lives up to what its vibe produces. I would recommend this game highly based on the side by side racing the game produces on the easy scale. Some other aspects that make this game highly rat... Read Full Review

    Great racing game!

    A excellent designed and fun racing game.

    Let me say first I am not a Nascar fanboy. I don't even watch the sport unless its the Daytona 500 or something big. Now with that being said I do love racing games like Gran Turismo and Dirt. This game is really fun an... Read Full Review

    NASCAR 09 is a step-up from NASCAR 08, but EA's laziness has once again ruined the game.

    The NASCAR gaming series has been around for years and let's face it, it's been struggling for nearly a decade. This year's version, NASCAR 09, is definitely an improvement from what NASCAR 08 was. It includes many new ... Read Full Review
