Summary: Well it is Clear to me that this was a rush job.The graphics could have been much better.This version lost alot of the good stuff.No sound on the replay.The pit stop and the garage options are lost.I was disapointed.Overall i enjoy the game but it could have been so much better.
Summary: I love auto racing. Whether Formula One, Indy Car, NASCAR, Rally, or just about anything on Four wheels. Having said that, I would have bought NASCAR 2001 regardless. The Yellow Flags are too long. Four laps? That is way too much. You may wish to consider letting the Gamer select the length of the yellow flag periods. The graphics on this game are gorgeoue. That is until you get a lot going on or turn on the rear view mirror.
Summary: I love racing but not so much "racin'" which is what NASCAR is about, how many times can one go in a circle and have fun? Anyways, having gotten a PS2 I bought any game with wheels including NASCAR 2001. I have played previous versions of this game and, although this one's graphics are very realisitc, it's options for what you can do are terribly limited. I'm thinking, like the other reviewers wrote, they rushed this.
I'm not a Nascar Fan but this game was some neat things.

Summary: I'm not a big fan of racing or of racing games usually, I mean to me watch 30 guys in cars go around in a circle for 3 hrs isn't my idea of fun and excitement, so instead of buying this title, I first decided to rent it. This game graphically is stunning, except when you pull up behind someone and someone is behind you and to try to watch them in your rear-view mirror, ohh then the graphics get choppy.
EA Sports should be ashamed of themselves for releasing this

Summary: This reviewer is a die hard Nascar fan and has been for over a decade now. When I first heard that Nascar 2001 was coming out for the PS2, I was quite excited. Unfortuntately, although this game is pure eye candy, its rather disappointing when playing its previous version Nascar 98, 99, 2000, and 2001 on the Playstation. EA had to rush this game and must have cut a whole lot out of it in order to ship it in time.
Summary: No doubt about it, NASCAR 2001 is a fun game to play. However, this game shows signs of being rushed out the door. The most noteable problem comes in the graphics department: graphics break up (get chunky) when racing in two player mode or on the more complicated courses like Sears Point. I would wait for NASCAR 2002 (or whatever it will be called) to give EA a chance to tune its graphic engine for the PS2.
Excerpt: Es evidente que cuando uno compra un juego como el Nascar sabe a lo que va y sabe perfectamente de que van esas carreras, sino se va a llevar una gran decepción. Pues bien, me gustaría daros la opinión de este juego, un poco viejo ya, pero que en sus días me tuvo enganchado con la consola durante bastantes días.
