Excerpt: The last NASCAR game was released in 2009, and ironically, was an arcade racing game. In 2011, not one, but two NASCAR games were released: one for the simulation fans and one for the arcade fans.
Excerpt: Don’t let the name fool you: this new arcade racer has about as much in common with America’s premier stock-car series as oversweetened Kool-Aid has with an award-winning microbrew. After a few sips, you’ll want to wash your palette clean. The game’s NASCAR licensing — including 15 drivers and a half-dozen tracks — lends it a modicum of authenticity, but Unleashed doesn’t even try to capture the sport’s wheel-to-wheel dynamic.
Pros: + It'll set you back only $40.
Cons: ? How hard is it to script some decent (and varied) background commentary?
