Excerpt: I've never really been into NASCAR, as far as most types of racing events are concerned; this brand is rarely the most exciting type in my mind. But I do enjoy racing games in general and am familiar enough with the genre and mechanics to know a good game when I see or play one.

Conclusion: Autsch, das ging wohl in die Hose. W�hrend NASCAR 08 auf der PS2 noch ganz okay ist (und nebenbei mehr Umfang bietet), kann man die Next-Gen-Versionen eigentlich niemandem so recht empfehlen. Au�er Hardcores, die mit dem Sport etwas anfangen k�nnen. Der 360 -Markt ist voll von guten Rennspielen, sei es nun ein PGR 4 f�r die Arcade-Freunde oder ein Forza Motorsport 2 f�r Simulations-Fetischisten.
Pros: Actionreiche Massenszenen, Viele Tuning-Optionen, Präsentation im TV-Stil
Cons: Technisch schwach, Wenig Spieltiefe, KI??, Grausame Steuerung
