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.
