Key Game Features Career Mode

Players progress through the grandeur of the NASCAR racing championships – the adrenaline-pumping NASCAR Sprint Cup series. Career mode provides the opportunity to compete at all the real-world NASCAR tracks alongside 42 other NASCAR legends - battling for points, victories, cups, and other race rewards. Drivers perfect their pit-stops, and master their racing reflexes in order to make 'The Chase', the final 10 races towards stardom and the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series Championship.

Ferocious Damage and Wrecks

Using the Eutechnyx Damage and Wreck System cars are catapulted into the air, barrel-rolling over one another. Metal twists and tears like cloth, whilst sparks and fragments scatter across the track. Debris that litters the track is actual parts off the car. The damage system allows all areas of the car to realistically display damage build up, in direct relation to impacts and action throughout the race. Damaged panels react to inertia and vibrate realistically in relation to the car's velocity.

Pit Stops

Pit stops and NASCAR go hand in hand. Throughout career mode, single player events and online multiplayer, pit stop strategy and efficiency is a fun and immersive part of the race. The pit stop sequences in the game mimic that of the real thing. Players witness their crew working efficiently to change all four tires, refuel and dial out handling deficiencies in the car, all in under 14 seconds. All pit stop animations are fully motion captured from a real NASCAR Sprint Cup team.

Spotter

Spotter feedback informs the player of the drivers in the race that will work with him, to bump draft, block, or slingshot, all in real-time. Invaluable advice from the spotter also alerts the player to any hazards up ahead, opponents closing the gap or attempting to pass, as well as how to react. The player's Spotter advises with VO on the areas of the car concerning the team, as well as make real-time, calculated suggestions on the pit strategy. VO advice is based upon the car's current fuel levels, tire wear, and the player's position in the race, in association with the number of laps left. Even the player's position in the overall standings is taken into account - giving dynamic, informative and invaluable advice to the player.

Online Play

NASCAR The Game 2011 supports online racing, and offers players additional modes of gameplay and the chance to increase their online skill rating. Players can join or create private multiplayer lobbies with ease, utilizing a choice of predefined race styles and additional race settings to create the race they want. Pit stops, tire wear, fuel consumption and caution flags can all feature in an online race if the player wishes. Players have the freedom to race with any of their cars online, any custom paint schemes and any tuning setups. Online play and split-screen also allows players to race as any of their favorite NASCAR drivers.

NASCAR 2011: The Game Review
My final call on NASCAR 2011: The Game is that it’s a solid first try from Eutechnyx and Activision. If you are a racing fan, you won’t mind the limited career mode and slightly weak multiplayer. The actual racing action is what you come for, and you won’t be disappointed. The game’s default difficulty might be a bit easy for your seasoned veterans, so consider amping up the difficulty a bit to stay challenged.
