Excerpt: All my life I’ve never been a fan of racing, and even less of a fan of racing games. But, just because I think that the idea of sending cars around a track again and again and again and again five hundred times is ridiculous, doesn’t mean I can't spot a good racing games when I see one. Such games include Need for Speed, Gran Turismo and Forza. Notice that a game not mentioned in this list is Sprint Cars: Road to Knoxville, and here’s why.
Excerpt: Sprint car racing has acted as a sort of AAA league for NASCAR drivers for years now, and considering the similarities between these decidedly American forms of auto racing, it makes sense. Despite a much lower level of exposure than NASCAR, there's something much more exciting and chaotic about sprint car racing, where high-powered engines are bolted onto small, lightweight frames, which are then flung skidding around an oval-shaped dirt track at speeds reaching 140mph.
Pros: Responsive controls, Healthy level of challenge in higher-end sprint cars
Cons: Underwhelming presentation, Inherently repetitive design, Lackluster career mode
Excerpt: Les Sprint Cars, ce sont ces monstres de 800 chevaux capables d'accélérations foudroyantes, mais à la tenue de route pour le moins délicate. Si vous appréciez la discipline, il y a fort à parier que vous trouverez votre bonheur dans Sprint Cars Road to Knoxville. Dans le cas contraire, prenez la prochaine bretelle de sortie et n'y revenez pas !
