Nascar Unleashed





Nascar Unleashed 


It is interesting when a franchise gets moved from one video game publisher to another. EA Sports churned out some great Nascar games over the years. So I was interested in seeing how Activision would do. Sadly their game is nowhere near the quality of EA’s games. I could sugar coat it, but I see no reason to. Our EIC encourages us to tell it like it is. Nascar Unleashed is the worst Nascar game I have ever played. I say that with disappointment because I like Activision and had hoped they would publish a great racing game for families.

Nascar Unleashed gets its title from taking us off the race track. Yes we get to race on dirt, grass, and other environments. We go from pavement to the off roading concept right inside the race tracks. We take a turn and we are taking jumps like a kart racing title. We do this in real looking Nascar vehicles. With the stickers and everything.

Nascar Unleashed encourages players to bash into the competition. This dirty racing brings rivals who will try and make you crash. Make them crash back and you get points for revenge. Anyone else in the class notice the problems with teaching kids that lesson? Yup, everyone winds up blind ad toothless. And the exact opposite of what Jesus Christ taught. The graphics in Nascar Unleashed are okay, and just okay.

The announcer in Nascar Unleashed is discouraging. Nothing like bringing people down to try and help their self esteem. The music is rockish, and fits the bumper car action in Nascar Unleashed. Some of us here at Family Friendly Gaming got headaches from playing Nascar Unleashed thanks to the music.

The developers must have thought putting challenges into Nascar Unleashed would be a good idea. Except they put the notification in an odd screen spot, and the text is tiny. Every time I tried to read it, I crashed. So I stopped trying to read it. Which lead to being annoyed by the announcer who kept telling me I had new challenges, and that I failed them just a bit later.

There are a fair amount of characters to unlock in Nascar Unleashed, and a decent amount of tracks to run. The biggest problem with Nascar Unleashed is it is no fun to play. More like a chore than anything else. The lesson of getting others before they get you is prevalent in Nascar Unleashed. This home console game on the Wii, PS3, and Xbox 360 also teaches to get revenge. There is another lesson in getting competition out of your way by any means necessary. Pass on Nascar Unleashed.
