    Huge Improvement From Past NASCAR Games

    I most recently had NASCAR ‘14 which was awful. As a result, I skipped the first NASCAR Heat game. However, I thought I’d finally try NASCAR Heat 2 and I’m glad I did. Heat 2 actually makes a NASCAR game fun to play again. For those that aren’t die-hard NASCAR enthusiasts, the game makes it easy enough to jump into a car and race right away without having to adjust the setup just to be able to keep the car on the track. However, for those that are die-hard fans, you’re able to make changes to the setup that actually make a difference to the handling of the car. This is such a welcome feature! No matter what you did to the car setup in NASCAR ‘14, the handling of your car never changed and that was beyond frustrating. The AI in Heat 2 is a huge improvement as well, although they do have a few quirks from time to time, but overall you can race with them and be aggressive without issue. If you want to run the high-line, you can do that. Want to run the low-line? You can do that too and the AI will race with you door-to-door whichever line you choose. The soundtrack is great as well, mostly in the rock genre which can get you pumped to go racing! However, I’ve had the game for about a month now, and I can see how this might lose peoples’ interest after a while. It seems as though once you’ve won the championship in the top series, you've completed all there is and there’s nothing different other than trying to win more championships. Maybe I haven’t progressed far enough in the game, but I would like to see some other aspects brought in, such as having the ability to become a team owner and manage your own team, improve your equipment and crew members, etc. For this reason, I’ve rated this 4 stars. Overall, this is a great improvement over previous NASCAR games and lays a very solid foundation to add onto and continue to improve in years to come.

    A Lot of Fun

    played NH2 for roughly 4 hours and have thoroughly enjoyed it so far. I have experimented with virtually all the various game modes and each one has left me coming back for more. Visually the game leaves a lot to be desired with dated graphics and decent damage model. Game play is fun, fluid and challenging with the aggressive AI. My BIGGEST complaint so far is the lack of a mini-map...how can a racing game in 2017 NOT include this? Overall I am impressed with how well 704 Games listened to fans, I didn't play NASCAR Heat Evolution so I really can't say firsthand how much the game has improved, but from what friends have told me and things I've read/watched the game is heading in the right direction. I think any reasonable person understood that the 2016 version was the building block and I look forward to what this series can become down the road.

    They made some improvements but it continues to baffle me how they leave out some simple things such as being able to adjust which driving assists you want to be on and by how much. Or like how you can't choose if you just want left tires on a pit stop, just 2 or 4, 2 being the right sides only. Career mode would be so much better if you had to start your own team and make money to improve as opposed to just getting arbitrary contract offers making money that doesnt even matter. A bunch of other little things need to be addressed to make the game better. Just don't understand how no one can ever get nascar video games right. Do they even play them themselves or are they even fans? I mean it is a fun game just not very much different than last year.

    Challenging Game, Fun Career Mode

    For several years now, Nascar video game fans have asked for all three national series (Camping World Truck Series, Xfinity, and Monster Energy Cup Series) to be put in a video game. This year, Nascar Heat 2 has done that, which is awesome. I love the fact that I can race on the Dirt at Eldora as well as race at some other fun tracks like Mid-Ohio and Iowa. The career mode is my favorite. It allows you to start in the trucks and work your way up through the different series. This is much better than the original and worth the purchase.

    I like the fact you start out in the trucks and move up through the series like you do in real life. I am in the xfinity series and moving up. Cons: still horrible with flags. I get spun out and no caution flags. I have to wait and get lapped then spin out a computer car to get a caution flag. Needs MUCH improvement on flags and rules.

    The best Nascar racer since 2008 on PS3

    Nascar Heat was a big disappointment last year. I am a big racer game fan, so I tried this year's version of the game. This year has added trucks to the mix, along with the stock cars. The trucks add a whole new dimension of handling needed to race fast. There are also way less online bugs than last year. The graphics look great on PS4. Overall a 9/10 rating.
