Complete waste of $

Customer review by AnthonyE11

Out of the box, this is the biggest disaster I have ever witnessed. There's more bad than good about this game. The worst thing I have seen in 20+ years of console and computer gaming. The good : graphics are nice looking..... that's really about it. The bad : Where to begin In single player after you complete 1 season, you have to start over your "career" if you want to race a 2nd season. AI is terribly easy to win against even on the hardest settings. Caution flags do not work for you. If an AI car spins/wrecks you, no caution. If you spin/wreck an AI car the caution is out immediately. Drafting is a joke. When you get in a draft it's like hitting the turbo in Mario Kart where you boost about 30 MPH. Car damage is terribly lacking. You can hit a wall head-on at 150+ MPH and have no damage at all to the car. To this day, I still can't get a car to breakdown. No matter how hard I try. If you run out of gas, you get a DNF. No coasting, no tow....GAME OVER No rear view/virtual mirrors in views outside of the car. Even in car views the mirrors don't work right. To even see them in the car you turn the drivers head. Wall glue is worse than NR2003. If you graze the wall you'll lose 20-30 MPH If you hit an orange cone at speed you'll get airborne as if it was a ramp. Pit road bugs : If you get wrecked and end up going into pit lane you'll get a black flag for speed or backing in. While racing, if you break the timing line while racing(I do it a lot at Richmond) black flag. Online : Completely unplayable 1 minute wait timer resetting. it's easier to have a ready button. It can take over 10 minutes in the lobby for a "quick" race to start. If there's more than 6 players be prepared to wait well over 5 minutes (I've timed it and got tired at 5 minutes) for the race to load. If you get lucky enough for a race to load, then you have to hope you don't get any of the numerous starting bugs. Cars missing the bodies, chassis only, starting upside down, flipping... the list goes on. Paint booth - Very confusing and terribly buggy as well. Can't use the Pre-set #'s if you want them to be seen. You have to use text to have #'s shown. Adding text. you can only add 1 letter at a time. Tracks - Complete failures caution lights are on 100% of the time. Watkins Glen the pit boxes are on the left side. The tracks in the game is pretty much flat. In real life into turn 1 there is a hill, turns have banking. Some night races are orange. I think only Bristol Night is dark. Steering wheels - DO NOT ATTEMPT TO USE This game has broken/ruined/fried many wheels. 1 guy had 2 get broken thinking his 1st one might have been on it's way out. I only scratched the surface with the bugs. Many more out there, too much too type. They are working of patches, but the list of bugs is too long. The game has loads of potential but out of the box it is NOT worth the buying price. I've lost any and all hope on this company. Most if not all of these bugs should have been found in Alpha/Beta testing, if they even did any of that. They have the NASCAR license for 5 years. Hopefully gamers won't have to wait that long for a good, playable game from a different company. EA's NASCAR games are much better than this release.

very cool game, better looking than '09 but can't race NNS or truck series. Sprint Cup only, still fun.

The NASCAR 2011 game was purchased as a birthday present for my 12 yr old son. There is a patch for the game that you have to download and install, but once it was installed the game worked great and he enjoys playing it.

This is a decent starting point for a company wanting to step into the NASCAR franchise. Without a force feedback wheel thegame is awful... of course, that's what I say about nearly all racing games.
