Robert Roop  "The Game Is Good In The Visial And Audio,also The Game Play Is Good Too,but I Think They Could Have Done More In The Sense Of Making It Have 43 Cars Instead Of The Traditional 24 Car Field I Thought That By This Time Some Company Would Bring Out A Nascar Game For A Console That Has All 43 Cars."

Kevin J. Makinen  "This Is A Game That You Will Enjoy. While In My Opinion Nascar Thunder 2002 Is Better Overall, Heat Has High Quality And Should Be At A Cheaper Price. Being A Rusty Wallace Fan, I Bought This Game Right Away Because He Said That It Was The Best Nascar Game Ever. While It Is A Fine Product, Papyrus' Nascar 4 For The Pc Probably Was The Best Ever. Definitely A Good Purchase Though."

William Boldman  "Nascar Heat Got Very Cold Very Quickly. The First Thing I Look For In A Nascar Game Is How Good Does It Look When I Crash My Car. After Repeatedly Doing An Earnhardt Into The Wall On The Hardest Setting, On Purpose, My Car Refuses To Flip, Show Any Distinguishable Damage, And Knock Me Instantly Out Of The Race. Appearently The Makers Of The Game Felt Staying In The Race Was More Important Than Any Sort Of Realism, Like, Oh Say, Getting Knocked Out After Being Stupid Or Nudged From Behind By Another Driver. Nascar Heat Really Dropped The Wrench On This One.

Id Like To Thank My Video Rental Store For Allowing Me To Bring Back My Rental 1 Hour After I Rented It. "sorry Sir, This Game Has A Scratch And Skips, Can I Rent Another?" Which Was Also True By The Way. I Suggest You Save Your Money And Wait For Nascar Thunder, Hopefully Theyll Do A Better Job Of Crashing And Burning Than Heat Does In Real Life."

Justin M. Nelson  "The Gameplay Seems To Be Somewhat More Realistic Than That Of Ea Nascar 2001. The Drivers And Car Manufacturers Are More Up To Date Than Nascar 2001
The "beat The Heat" Challenges And "race The Pro" Are Great Additions To The Game, Allowing You To "practice With Purpose".

The Expert Car Setup Is Top Notch! Every Aspect Of Nascar Car Setup Is Included. The Game Does Tend To Be Easy Though. On The Toughest Settings Available, I Win More Than 3/4 Of The Races In A Season."
