Summary: Sorry Racers, but bought this game on a whim, and paid dearly for it. Nascar Heat just can't measure up to the amount of playability, and realism that Nascar Thunder 2002 offers. You can't build your own car. You must race an established car, (sorry but what fun is bein the substitute driver??) I wanna be the STAR!! The head to head feature wasn't that impressive. Yeah great Kevin Harvick can beat me on his favorite track? I paid 20 bucks to find this out??
Summary: I went by the reviews and rented this game, lucky i didn't buy it, it's almost exactly like the old ea games, which are nothing, especially compared to the sierra computer games. I haven't played the 2002 ea game, so i can't say about it, but i'd say cart world series is the best playstation racing game. and it's so old you probably can't find it anymore.
