Summary: I bought this title based on the reviews I read here, but it wasn't as good as I'd hoped. I also bought Gran Turismo 3 along with it, so maybe I'm spoiled after playing it first. GT3 is the best racing sim availble at the time I'm typing this. If you're a diehard NASCAR fan you'll more than likely enjoy Nascar Heat 2002, despite the lackluster graphics and realism. However, don't expect to be knocked off your feet or anything.
Summary: This game was a bit of a letdown for me. I was expecting tight control with updated paint schemes and all the tracks. The paint schemes are there, all the tracks are there i believe, save for Indy, the control is kinda iffy, i suppose it will take some getting used to, so i say 3 stars for now with potential for 4 or maybe 5, i cant stop playing Twisted Metal: Black long enough to give it a real chance, but at least i played it before trashing it.
