NASCAR 2005: Chase for the Cup
Game Over Online
29 September 2004
Excerpt: Gaming and NASCAR have definitely had a love/hate relationship, one that's often ebbed and flowed with the times. On one hand, fans have seen the evolution of the sport on both PCs and consoles. The inclusion of new racing series and racetracks, for instance, has expanded the scope of the NASCAR game significantly. Unfortunately, many other gamers have dismissed the action of these titles as simplistic, boring or lacking in depth.
Excerpt: The primary thrust of NASCAR 2005 lies in its career mode, aptly titled, "Fight For The Cup," which initially casts the player as a fan of Ryan Newman's driving along a city street late at night. As you stop at a light, you're shocked to see your idol pull up next to you and challenge you to a street race. Thus begins your introduction to the NASCAR Circuit, as your skills behind the wheel convince Ryan to sign you to a contract with his agent.
