The right step in the right derection!

Well I have been around racing my whole life and most people relate race fans as white trash, all types of people like racing and all kinds of people like football. They are both sports and fun to watch and these guys who participate in these sports are inspirational to some, but most of all its better than first person shooter game's that can make some forget reality. I would just like to say thanks for the game.

I think this is appropriate for 8+ because my son, Kyle, loves to see and ride cars.

Is It Any Good?

From the onset, the game definitely shows its budget pricing in the presentation; a very bare bones interface combined with very flat and boxy looking graphics keep this title destined for the bargain bin. With controls that seem to never allow the player to fully control the car, only the dedicated and patient will be able to master the game. Actual drivers from the World of Outlaws series are used as opponents in the title, but sadly, nothing more than car number, style, and the drivers name are presented. The races start out interesting with mud flying (and blocking your vision), but after the first few matches, you realize that each race is going to be identical. Only the most hardened Sprint Car fans will stick this game out. Playing online has potential to be fun, but the extremely limited online community makes finding people to play with difficult.

Online interaction: Open chat is available for all gamers, and with that anyone runs the risk of ending up in a lobby or game with a very offensive player.
