4.0 out of 5 stars You're getting warmer EA !! Nice Improvement !! June 12, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
If you have read any of my past reviews, I have been a vocal critic of EA's NASCAR titles and how unrealistic they have been. For the past few years, I rented them ONLY and found myself disappointed. I finally gave in again and bought NASCAR 09 for my PS3.

I must say I am impressed with some of the new features that I have seen. I love the inclusion of Jeff Gordon and the removal of Agent Ace Moneymaker...what an annoyance he was. The controls are better, the graphics look good and crisp and I love the ability to look around left, right, and behind using the analog stick.

So, here are my PROS:

1. Saw some new features, like the "lucky dog" during a race.
2. Love the new paintbooth and the ability to copy cars from your PC to PS3 from Photoshop, etc.
3. Importing your own driver photo.
4. 2 handling modes for varying skill drivers.
5. Inclusion of Jeff Gordon as your mentor.
6. Great new challenge mode.
7. Online play with up to 12 persons.
8. The new "reputation" meter.

and on the other hand, the CONS....

1. Glitchy online play (but understandable early on).
2. Freezes occasionally between menus.
3. Still has unrealistic accidents and lack of AI cars blowing engines, having wrecks, etc.
4. Limit of 12 cars in online play.
5. No prerace ceremonies, activities that add realism and flair to the game.

All in all though, I am happy with this game and think it's a very worthy purchase if you are a NASCAR or racing fan in general. Props, EA !! But don't stop now, keep those improvements coming for NASCAR 2010 !!

1.0 out of 5 stars Awful racing game, a monopoly at its worst. June 30, 2008
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
I have a Logitech Pro Wheel, an HDTV, the whole set up, and I am a HUGE NASCAR fan.

This is probably the most disappointing game I have ever played. It is a complete disaster. The only possible way that anyone can enjoy this game is if they have never played another racing game in their life.

It constantly freezes. It has frozen three times for me today while trying to play online. I hit join game, and the PS3 freezes. It is infuriating.

The graphics are abysmal. Compare this game to GT5 prologue; it is an absolute joke. You cannot see things until they are right up on you, the resolution is awful; this looks like a PS2 game, IF THAT.

Jeff Gordon is constantly talking to you, it gets incredibly annoying.

Load times are incredibly long; go to the bathroom while the next screen is loading, come back and wait some more.

The setups are completely impossible to figure out; if you want racing but do not want to spend 40 hours trying to figure out the best setup for each track, forget about competing online.

But when you do finally get your car handling correctly and take it online, for one, there will always be someone with a car much better than yours (and you will never be able to figure out how to catch him), and two, there is always the sound of a pre-school class full of kids in the background with a microphone, wrecking everyone in the back. The competition is just awful, the other players are a joke. I think the reason for this is that serious simulation racers laugh at EA NASCAR games and go straight to NR2003 or something. Do not expect any good competition; towards the front, it is nothing but a battle of setups from what I have seen anyways, not much real racing going on.

Do not buy this game.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Challenging Type Fun...... April 12, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Taking into consideration the price of NASCAR 09, all the game has to offer, and the challenge it presents trying to master your driving skills at the various tracks I would recommend picking up this title for the PS3.

What I liked:
--The detail of the various race tracks
--Challenging 'Season' mode in your quest to win a championship
--Solid graphics
--A fairly large number of Sprint Cup drivers to choose from
--Camera views to the Left, Right, & Behind your car
--The options you have during a pit stop
--Victory celebrations

What I disliked:
--Getting the black flag for agressive driving on short tracks like Bristol or Martinsville can be very questionable at times
--Very few Truck series drivers to choose from

You can unlock a special track within the game along with obtaining the Walmart car. Go into the cheat code section of the game and type in "Walmart Everyday". You will unlock a very fun road course.

Overall, I think this is a solid release which will give the buyer their money's worth with the time spent trying to master the necessary skills it takes to run fast and consistent lap after lap. NASCAR 09 is a hit.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not a bad effort EA but not your best November 9, 2009
Platform for Display:PlayStation 3
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Well I was waiting for this years installment to come out to write a NASCAR review, but that's not going to happen any time soon. This game was a must buy for me because I buy it every year. NASCAR 08 was terrible in my opinion and I hoped that EA would change their way of thinking this year. By far this game exceeds the previous installment. The actual racing is nicely refined, giving veterans of the series a more challenging experience while still giving the rookie a chance. There is an opening race where you set up your skill level, actually the game provides its estimate of what you should pick, I chose the veteran driver setting, but if you're a rookie I advise you don't choose it. The game play is fast and furious. Even if you've found the perfect set up for a track and saved the next time around the track will change and you're back to square one just like in real life. I wish they had a tutorial for the setups to help me adjust my car better. I simply adjust air pressure, wedge, and the track bar the rest of the set up is a mystery to me. The career mode is lacking though. There is really no interaction with the team you chose. You can't communicate with team mates or even see who your teammates are. There are no driver changes; everyone is the same every year. There is no trophy room to see your hard earned possessions. The contracts are stupid; a team dropped me a three time champion because I didn't qualify in the top 20 one race. You also can't run more than one series at a time you have to choose which one to run at the beginning of the season. Also I liked in previous years where you could build up your garage and team, and even price your own merchandise. All that has been taken away, you can't even check your stats for the previous year.
