Summary: this game was fun at first but then it got way to easy (like all nascar games). Its only fun when you are playing with 2 or more people. I would reccomed it if you can get it for under 10 bucks because thats all its worth.
Summary: Ever since NASCAR Thunder 2004, EA's NASCAR games have been progressively getting worse. In 2005, you couldn't make but 4 custom cars. In previous years, you could create as many as your memory card could hold. However there are two major disappointments; 1. Perhaps the biggest disappointment, when it says you can own a team, I thought you could create several of your own cars and forge a team with them.
Summary: For my first real review I'd like to address a problem I have that I know you have too if you'd enjoy playing a good NASCAR video game. The problem is that one doesn't exist. EA Sports makes the only NASCAR game, and it's past 2 editions, NASCAR Chase for The Cup 2005 and NASCAR 06 Total Team Control have left me still going back to play NASCAR Thunder 2004. NASCAR Thunder was almost perfect.
Looking for realistic NASCAR ?? DON'T BUY THIS GAME !!

Summary: Some of you may be looking for just an arcade type experience where anything goes. If so, you may like Nascar 06: Total Team Control. But as for me. I want some sort of realism. It doesn't have to be perfect, but man, let's get it close. I truly believe that NO ONE at EA has ever watched a NASCAR race. If you have watched a race, let me put it in perspective for you. I have gotten AIRBORNE, FLIPPED 5 or 6 times, and seen other AI cars do the same.
Summary: I've been buying EA Sports nascar games ever since 2003 and have been pleased with each year but this one. Every game takes a little getting used to but this one is impossibe. I use a driving wheel and pedals on my playstation 2 for my nascar games and not once I've had to program the gas and brake pedals in to use it. The first time I played this game, when it said go I had no gas and no brakes. I thought my steering wheel was broken but after a while I figured it out.
Summary: The steering on Nascar 2006 is really awful. It's even more awful compared to the past two Nascar games. I just received the game today and tried to play it. I was really shocked at how I simply could not drive the car consistently. The steering is sluggish, but at the same time "jerky". I found it impossible to be smooth in the turns, or for that matter, be smooth on the straights trying to change lanes.
