Excerpt: I am traditional in many things in my life. In fact I would say I am traditional in most things in my life. One of those things is video games. I like to purchase a game, and play it. I am not into downloading games. I enjoy going to stores and read on the boxes. Nascar The Game Inside Line DLC made me re-evaluation that opinion.
Excerpt: It is intriguing to see what different companies do with a license. Nascar The Game Inside Line is another year where Activision gets to hone their racing skills. They have improved almost every facet of the game. That is not to say there are still some areas left for continued improvement. Because there are.
Conclusion: The starts and restarts also feature a tremendous amount of lag and the core racing itself features laggy cars and people that will sometimes fly around. This leads me to give the multiplayer a 1/10. Overall I would rate this game a 2.5-3.0/5. Unless the multiplayer gets patched then this is a game I would not suggest buying.

Summary: Parents need to know that NASCAR The Game: Inside Line is a racing game that emulates the fast-paced world of NASCAR. There is a career mode with a 23-track season. In addition, the game features five other single-player games (Chase for the Sprint Cup, Race Now, Track Testing, Scenario Challenges, and Head-to-Head Challenges), can be played as an online multiplayer race, or with two players in a split-screen mode.
Excerpt: NASCAR fans don’t demand perfection from videogames of their cherished sport — just an honest effort that lets them don their favorite driver’s helmet and re-create some of the high-speed, fender-rubbing action on their TV. This sequel to NASCAR 2011 certainly isn’t perfect, but it gets enough things right to keep ardent stock-car fans turning left.
Pros: + Visually impressive renderings of all 2012 NASCAR cars, drivers, and tracks., + Deep, entertaining career mode.
Cons: ? Is there any way to mute that Darrell Waltrip
Conclusion: Inside Line is another solid offering from Eutechnyx. The good foundation laid with 2011 translates to this title, and the same great core gameplay mechanics are back. Improvements to the Career mode are the biggest contribution to the series, and helps make this a decent step forward. And a few other single player options add to the up swing. While split screen is great, the LIVE portion is not very good. I was banking on this being much, much better. And it just isn't.
Excerpt: Last year, developer Eutechnyx released an all new racing title for NASCAR fans to enjoy across all platforms, and this year, NASCAR The Game: Inside Line is ready to improve upon last year's release with plenty of new features and the exciting action NASCAR fans have come to expect from the Sprint Cup Series each year.
