NASCAR 2001 User Reviews
You race around an oval - just like NascarSummary:
If you have always fantasized about being a race car-driver and you own a big screen TV (52" or bigger) then you can live your dream. You can race, smash and burn the other drivers on the circuit.
The physics are great, and the control is phenomenal. The damage meters add quite a dose of realism to the game, and if you hate realism - turn it off. The game also sports a cool 2 player mode, that rocks. The only problem with the two player mode is that you can't get the view from inside the car(sniff,sniff.)
But for those of us fortunate enough to have large monitors for our games, we can sit b...
This game has a lot of drivers in it,music is ok,graphics are goodThe bad:
worse than NASCAR Thunder 2002Summary:
thats why i gave NASCAR 2001 a 4.4
I recommend NASCAR Thunder 2002 a lot more than this game,go read my review for Thunder.
The racing simulation is intense and accurate.Get hung out of the draft on a restrictor plate track, you'll lose positions like your standing still!The bad:
Graphics are improved but could be better.#1 complaint of mine is the driver no longer shifts the trans while your inside the car!Summary:
Game was released before several sponser changes were made such as Dale Jarrett and Mark Martin.( UPS & Viagra) It is still very difficult to set up the car perfectly for each track, but for the tru NASCAR enthusiast, that's most of the fun.
dcent graphics, and good easy controlsThe bad:
not enough wrecksand yellow flagsSummary:
this is a really cool game. ive seen reviews were the reviewe said the gameplay is sketchy, they are full of crap. this is an awesome game ecept for the absence of yellow flags. i raced 8 races each 100 laps or longer and got 2 yellow flags combined. they need to add more wrecks and cautions in the next game.
If you wanna know, this is the boring game i ever played. The graphics are bad, the sound effects are bad, the gameplay are bad, the racers are bad, the cars are bad ....... everyhing is bad in this game !!!! If you still want to play this game, i recommend you to rent it first, and see it for yourself. You then will see what i mean ......
I'd recommend only as a last resort.
Poorly rendered, sound and gameplay.Summary:
EA should stay away from NASCAR, November 17, 2000
Reviewer: A gamer from wny
If you want real driving excitement, go take your car on the thruway. This game is poorly rendered, and is really a step backwards as compared to the other Nascar games of the past. The sound of your engine is atrocious, it sounds like the engine of the car from the "Enduro" Atari 2600 game. No, I'm not kidding. Listen closely! It's hard to believe that the same people who put out the awesome Need For Speed series put out this bad game. I would shop the competition before buying this game, I'd recommend only as a l...
