Excerpt: NASCAR is one of the most popular sports on earth, so it stands to reason the games should be equally popular. Well, they are, but for whatever reason, each new installment in the franchise tends to be somewhat dated and largely unchanged from the previous installment. We honestly can't begin to guess why this continues to happen, but then again, most sports games are accused of this very same thing.
Excerpt: To some it is just car racing. To others it is a religion. To me, it is something to watch on a lazy Sunday afternoon when I’m in the mood for car crashes. Regardless of your feelings towards the sport (or your opinion on its status as one), EA is back this year with another edition of the NASCAR game, though without many of the yearly upgrades we’ve come to expect from EA’s sports franchises. NASCAR 07 looks and sounds just as good as previous versions.
Excerpt: NASCAR 07 is a game built for NASCAR fans. It assumes that you already know a lot about NASCAR and its drivers, driving and pit strategy, and race rules, and that you enjoy the long hard grind that marks a NASCAR season. Even if you sleep, eat, and breathe NASCAR but are new to the NASCAR games you’ll find the going a bit rough at first. There’s nothing in the way of tutorials or strategies available, either in the game or in the thin manual that accompanies it.
Conclusion: Nascar 07 is meer een opgelapte versie van Nascar 06 geworden in plaats van een geheel nieuwe game. Het je vorige editie nog, of kan deze tak van de autosport jou niet boeien? Laat deze game dan liggen. De rest kan ik enkel aanraden om deze racer eerst eens uit te proberen.
Pros: Geluid, Realisme
Cons: Langdradige career mode, Lelijke graphics, Weinig vernieuwing
