    Still the standard for console-based stock car racing games

    EA Sports definitely didn't call it in on this effort. NASCAR Thunder 2003 still sets the standard (I believe, with Dirt to Daytona a close second), for what a stock car racing game should be. Only the NASCAR Season 02/0... Read Full Review

    NASCAR Thunder 2003 is a masterpiece of a racing game. Even though EA has now gone hay-wire and has been messing around with the latest NASCAR games, NASCAR Thunder 2003 for the Game Cube has definitely stood the test of... Read Full Review

    Fun, ain't it?

    Fun, fun and funner! The graphics are good on 2003, but lacks the crowd being 3D. And that really stinks about 2003. It is impressive on the controls in 2003 but the steering is sometimes bad when my car is even a bit da... Read Full Review

    I just bought this game used. Mediocre at best...

    Some people say this is the best game in the series. I'd say it is at least in the lower half of their games all together because it just doesn't feel like your there. The graphics are great, don't get me wrong, but it r... Read Full Review

    Review for Nascar Thunder 2003.
