Is It Any Good?

Our review:
Parents say (1 ):
Kids say (1 ):

The speed and sounds and graphics are all good. There is no longer a cockpit view, which will be disappointing to fans of earlier Nascar video games. Handling the controls is tricky though, and it's easy to crash (which seems to be a big part of the entertainment). There is an intimidator and grudge feature that can be more annoying than unpleasant because it interrupts gameplay.

Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.
