What Gamespot Users have to say about NASCAR 09

  • Rating:7.5

    Not a ground shaker, but not a snore either. Solid.

    I recently purchased this game from my local pawn shop so I could have another racer to play when I got bored with GT5 and NFS:HP. Being a NASCAR fan, I liked the idea that this game featured all three touring series of... Read Full Review

    It just keeps getting worse and worse.

    First off do you like having teammates and rivals in the game like I do? Cause if you do there are no teammates or rivalries. Sure the sound of the game is pretty good but I personally hate Jeff Gordon and he is everywhe... Read Full Review

    Intense side-by-side racing!

    The main mode of Nascar 09 is the Chase for The Cup mode. In this mode you play as a new Nascar driver. The first thing you do is a few laps at Daytona in Jeff Gordon's car. This is so you can choose settings that work f... 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

    A Complete Mess.

    Review for Nascar 09 Well, there is nothing good about this game what so ever. The graphics are horrible for a 2008/2009 game. What is worse is the gameplay. It is embarrasing. Endless bore. Driving round a circuit 20... Read Full Review

    Not really a Nascar fan kinda, but this game i have to say this game really addicted racing on XBL

    Nascar 08 really sucked bad, its the worst nascar game in the series. EA sports rushed through it so the only cool thing about that game is the graphics. One year later on June 10th, 2008 this EA Sports NASCAR 09 is one... Read Full Review

    Not as good as the other games in the series.

    Nascar 2009 is great game overall. There are some minor blemishes, but otherwise, there are hardly any problems. New Features: Nascar 2009 introduces a few new features, such as family play and the instant rewind.... Read Full Review

    NASCAR 09 is visually outstanding but lacks the effort that games like NASCAR 06 had.

    NASCAR 09 for the PS3 is a solid NASCAR game. To start it has some amazing graphics. These by far are the best graphics that any NASCAR game has had. This game does have some flaws though. To start the career mode isn't ... Read Full Review
