NASCAR 08 review

  • All the official cars and tracks
  • Good looks, adjustable controls
  • Tweaking the car setup
  • Spotty opponent behavior
  • Gutted career mode
  • No offline multiplayer

Unfortunately, when you get onto the track, you'll notice that the other drivers still don't behave quite as intelligently as they could, and sometimes race in ways a real-world driver never would - forcing you in turn to either drive more riskily than you'd like just to avoid a wreck or to break the rules yourself and risk punishment.

NASCAR 08 looks great on the next gen systems: PS3 and 360 are virtually identical, with the 360 version running slightly more smoothly. HDTV nuts note: the 360 version also goes to 1080i resolution, while the PS3 is limited to 720i. But ultimately, like an import tuner with fuzzy dice and neon running lights but no steering wheel, you can't help feeling that some of the most important parts are missing.
