    Anyone played any of the EA Nascar games.

    08 got 6/10 on gamespot
    &
    09 got 7/10

    I don't always trust these reviews as often these guys aren't sim racers.

    So have any of you "intelligent" racers out there tried these & if so please share your opinions?

    Only a step better than the previous years.

    But I like NASCAR 06: Total Team Control the best.

    It went worse with every year. The best one in my opinion is 2007 or 2006 version. Can't remember exactly :)

    Thanks.
    It sounds pretty ordinary.
    I think I'll give it a miss & wait for Nascar in GT5.
    Cheers

    Well I had some great moments on NASCAR 08. In fact, it's the game where I won my first full 100% distance NASCAR race!

    Raced at FoodCity 500 with #48 (or #24, I forgot), went through the pack and won it after 500 laps :D

    I happened upon NASCAR 09 for AU$24 & couldn't pass it up. (Dick Smith in Australia)
    I must admit it is better than I thought it was going to be.
    The menus & front end are all a bit over the top & confusing but once you get into it, it's a good racing experience.
    You would have to like oval racing I think.
    The AI was impressive on the ovals.
    I haven't done a circuit race yet so I won't comment on that AI.
    Nice clear graphics but a wheel is essential.

    My only gripe so far is that the sound on the replays doesn't match what's happening on the screen.

    I give it 8/10
    Worth a look IMHO, especially if you can find it cheap.
