    I don't get why there are many good reviews. Low expectations I guess? It is better than previous NASCAR games. I'm going to put this one back in it's case and let it collect dust alongside all of my other bad gaming decisions... I had some hope for this one though... thinking: "Hey, It's 2017 and that it would finally live up to the hype." After being let down in the past by so many other NASCAR racing games. I figured that with the power and graphic capabiilities of the PS4 and Xbox One, that some company would finally "Nail It!" Didn't happen... This game needed more time in development. Cons: Graphics are Xbox 360 or PS3 quality at best. It's glitchy in both modes. Has inferior handling physics. Season saves might get erased as noted by many other reviewers. You better like country music because it all sounds like one same song. A-I needs work. career mode is super basic. Online play - well: just more wrecks... It is almost impossible to recover and place well after you wreck in either mode. Which you will do over and over again because the A-I opponents crowd you out of your line if you are "In their preferred line." Any slight wrong movement when you are racing inside a tight pack and you will be experiencing a Talladega style wreck no matter which track you are on. Restart and then Repeat. Pros: It's better than previous versions. If you love NASCAR it can be fun driving your fav driver's car. Pros are difficult for me right now.... At least I bought it on sale? I'm a 30 year veteran gamer who loves racing games - all types. I've got 10 diff. consoles in my entertainment center... I've beaten over 100 racing games over the years (no exaggeration.) Promise you I've got skills, It's not me... Lame Game. I'm not having fun. In fact I'm so frusterated that I'm writing this review, which is totally not my norm...

    Fun game but very average

    I like it but I have played many past games and my current collection includes F1 2017, Project Cars 2, Forza 7, Forza Horizon 3 as well as Dirt 4. Every game has its positives and negatives but by far the one that trails from the other mentioned games is Nascar Heat 2. I don't plan on ditching it as if you really like to play Nascar you'll want to break this one out from time to time even though you get better physics and graphics from Forza and Project Cars 2 using their Nascar vehicles. Nice to have all the tracks and to play through a season. Also surprisingly online seems to have a lot of players. The biggest issue I have with this game is no small map you can see on the track showing cars and where they are. Graphics look more like previous generation but that may be due to having more cars on the track at the same time. All in all fun game and worth purchase if you can get on sale. I only payed around $30 including tax so I'm OK with that.

    I am having a ton of fun with NASCAR Heat 2 they fixed alot of the issues that made the previous NASCAR Heat Evolution not a fun NASCAR racer. I love the new Rivals where if you are too aggressive with other drivers they can either be friendly with you if you race clean or want to drive you into the wall if you are too aggressive with a driver and be your rival, so be careful because it's tough to race against those driver. Split screen is a welcome feature. Most of all you can race in all 3 NASCAR series. The Camping truck series, Xfinity and the Monster Cup. This game will keep you entertained for months. Love it!

    Decent Game, Inconsistent AI

    This is a decently fun game, the graphics are okay, I feel like some of the graphics seem pretty last console. They tried with this game, its just not polished very well. It felt rushed. Biggest issue is the AI, its either you win the race or you end up in last place, it felt too hard, or too easy. I haven't found a just right setting yet. The track selection is decent, game modes are fun. Maybe in the next edition we can see a better game experience and I can give it 5 stars.

    Freezes in middle of races

    While driving in a race if a car approaches or to many things happen on track the game freezes for a few precious seconds and when it starts again I usually end up banging off all the cars. If and when an update comes out for it I hope that this problem is fixed because this game.is way better than last year's game though I wish you could donuts when I win a race.

    I bought last years version when it came out. We enjoyed it, but were very disappointed that we couldn't race h2h. This version has brought that aspect in, and my son and I enjoy it immensely. The overall interface is easy, intuitive, and structured. It makes things go much more smoothly. If you enjoy racing, then I recommend this game.

    Graphics are subpar for this generation of game. AI will run you over on pit road or coming on or off track, but will race terribly even on the hardest settings. Career mode has some fun bits, and there seems to be a good bit of NASCAR drivers actually used in the game. But I wouldn’t buy it again.

    Last year's version was horrendous with the way online racing was setup. The developer listened to complaints & fixed it....for the most part. Still would love to be able to move driver's from team to team, retire them, fire them, etc. Other than that, the game is a blast online & offline

    Really fun and easy to pick up, different modes to choose from. It is a great game if you are a fan of the series or NASCAR, however if you are looking for a street racing feel, you may be disappointed.

    We have purchased only LG tvs for the last 15 years. This is the latest and as expected, does not disappoint us! Best Buy's price match guarantee certainly makes things more convenient rather than shipping a tv through loose packaging on a brown truck!

    This game added a new feature compared to Heat 2, with adding a dirt racing series prior to jumping into the truck series when in career mode! Highly recommended to anyone whom is a NASCAR fanatic

    If you like racing games, this one gives you a little more of a racing experience you would expect, unlike the crazy Need for Speed or Burnout. These games are good also, but for straight up racing, Nascar Heat delivers.

    This was on sale & with gamers club a good deal. Would not pay full price for this game. I play the Forza games, which are much better in every way. Decent game if you can get it for $15 or less .

    I use a racing rig for this game and love the selection of vehicles and options for the wheel. Not as much as a sim game as it puts off. Still a good game though.

    Good game play and controls but very repetitive. They need to add the course map while driving like past and other racing games. Decent game if you're a Nascar fan but you'll lose interest quickly.

    Great game. Massive improvement over NASCAR HEAT. Really enjoy the online platform. Lots of downloadables to pick. Plus come with a $50 dollar NASCAR ticket credit for the 2018 at select tracks.

    This game still needs a lot of work in my opinion, but there was slight improvements over the first game produced. Still a game that you can enjoy and have a good time with.

    This has to be the best nascar racing game I've played in years. It offers all 3 series of racing and it's a lot of fun to play. A must have for racing fans.
