STAFF REVIEW of Nascar Thunder 2002 (Xbox)

Nascar Thunder 2002 Box art I enjoy this game, but wish that when you increased the length from 5 to 10% that more pit stops were required. That would give more pit strategy into play. I don't have all day to race one track. Also, I wish that you could change the length of the races and the difficulty during the season. I enjoy racing games and this is my first NASCAR game. I'm glad I chose this game.


The Gameplay is very precise and easy to get used to, in fact theres not much to get used to in your first race it's almost a give that you'll be vying for the top spot before the race is through. The AI seems to just follow the leader around in circles, not really trying to take over unless they just happen to be going a bit faster and it accidently happens. With easy controls and very smooth graphics it does make it very fun to play for atleast a race or two. (Who can resist stopping at one point and driving the track backwards!)


Graphics are on par with any PC game of the same type. This title could be very done if it were an xbox only title, but compared to any other console this one is by far the best. Actual damage, although not as much as I would have like. The inside of the cars seems to be a bit repetitive, I guess they couldn't model each drivers exact car inside and out. No complaints about the backgrounds or pit crews, all very well done and really help the score in this department.


Sound Could us some work. It needs more variation. Although I could'nt hear it very good on the wimpy TV speakers in the store. I think they should hook up stereo systems to game consoles in stores so you can get a good Idea of how it sounds.


Suggestions:
Improve sounds add more options and multiplayer


Overall: 9.0 / 10
Gameplay: 9.0 / 10
Visuals: 9.0 / 10
Sound: 9.0 / 10
