Summary: Its an awsome game. I knew It was going to be a good game from the start because I saw Youtube videos about it first ( Try searching Youtube Videos about the game first, and if its good enough, get it) For me it seemed like a really great game. It has great graphics and gameplay.
Summary: All NASCAR fans should own this game. It is simply the best. You can start from scratch in career mode, and race for money and sponsors, upgrading your vehicle as you go. All the racetracks are included, and you race against 41 other drivers, just like in the real deal. Pit crews start out as incompetent clumsy gorks that botch simple tasks, like refueling and changing tires, but they become smarter and more efficient as you win more races.
Summary: EA sports has neared perfection. They could only make very few improvements. Such as matching your pit box with your starting position in the race. Having the weather affect the track to some degree. Otherwise this game is screaming. My only gripe, is the fantasy super speedway you can unlock you have to race the wrong direction on. Racing a track the opposite direction at 239 miles per hour (thats right no restrictor plates on this track).
Summary: If you like NASCAR and driving games, this is the game for you. Previous attempts at NASCAR games were just cheesy flashes in the pan. Previous games were shallow in functionality, distorted in graphical depictions (the racecars were cartoonish in their renderings) and made it to the bottom of the pile shortly after arriving home. Boring. Thunder 03 has depth.
Summary: I got a demo disc from Playstation Underground and tried this game, I loved it, but the demo didn't even compare to what I saw when I rented the full game. Words cannot describe how totaly awesome it was. I spent hours just looking threough the different things before my 1st real race. I won after I set the car up PERFECT and ran about 1000 practice laps. You get to see the pre-race announcements, and the after-race celebration if you win.
Summary: Nascar Thunder 2003 manages to strike the perfect balance. Plenty of features and modes to meet anyones tastes and preferences. However the highlight is the 20 year career mode. Start as a rookie and work toward the championship. Not only do you race and setup the car, but you also have to manage the money (and its easy to run out if you have too many DNFs). You have to hire the crew members, repair your car(s), keep the sponsers happy, etc.
Summary: I rented the game this past week and I was totally in awe of the sounds and the graphics and additions to the game. The people at Electronic Arts should be commended for the work on this game. The sounds have been improved greatly with the sounds of the engines and all the bumping and banging that comes with Nascar.
Summary: From what I've seen,this game will beat the pants off any other racing games.This year,the graphics are sweeter.The A.I. has been cooked up a notch,which means,crashes,crashes,and more crashes. The paint schemes are cooler,and the car setup has more things to tweak ,that'll show some hard work.The game has some pre-race activity,and victory lane celebration.Career mode is fun to the bone,you build your own chassis,for twenty years!
