Summary: This game is great! What can I say! I mean the graphics are the best I've ever seen on a nascar game. Sound is okay not over the top but not bad. Gameplay is fun and addictive, and the car is easy to control. Although I should warn you that steering may feel really sensitive at first, but you do get used to it so don't panic. Another reason the game is so great is that there is lots to do even after you beat the championship mode.
Summary: Ok, wow..., oh my god I hate Nascar but when I saw a little ad for this game I decieded to pick it up, and now I don't hate nascar anymore, this is the best game of all racing games, maybe of all games out there, the only who can beat it will be HEAT for XBOX. but this uses all of the PS2s power and yuo can tell, i just hate the guy in your headset, he says the same thing over and over and like back to back, that is the only downpoint, I like driving with Dale, and i got...
Summary: one of the most relistic and fun racing games ever made,,the graphics were outstanding, the sound was real/like being at the tracks(you need to have surround sound to appreciate the great sound)..i give the producers a 5-star/thumbs-up rateing..the best on the market...!! i loved the replays..great job...!! put your money on this one, its worth every penny!!!!
Summary: First of all, why would that idiot give this game one star when he has not even played it? If you don't know what you are talking about, then shut up. Don't try to blast something you have no knowledge of. Nascar Heat 2002 is vastly superior to the Nascar game that Electronic Arts brought out earlier this year. Nascar Heat has no choppy graphics and visuals that look frightenly real!
Summary: Nascar Heat was my first race game on the psII and i was not disapointed. The graphics are great and the season and AI are right on....I didn't notice any over compensation by the computer...if i was running all out better than the computer it would let things go naturally...the only problem is if you play the "expert" or most realistic level....be prepared to know what you are doing when dialing in the race car..
A review from someone who's actually played the game

Summary: As someone who's actually played the game, unlike the person before me, and as someone who's actually a fan of NASCAR, unlike the person before me, I will give my review of what I think is one of the best NASCAR games ever. This game has very good graphics, with great looking cars and tracks. The graphics are definitely better than NASCAR 2001, which was only a slight upgrade over the PS1 graphics. The game does not have commentary, unlike NASCAR 2001.
Summary: Okay...okay....people seem either to like this game or NASCAR Thunder. This is quite a debate but I think NASCAR Heat wins out over Thunder. NASCAR Heat is fun. It is designed to be fun and enjoyable. The controls are more forgiving and fun than with Thunder but it is meant to be. I fully enjoy this game. The Heat trials are fun and can get very hard. Overall I highly recommend this game over Thunder because it is more fun. Thunder is for more of the serious NASCAR fan.
