I am thankful Family Friendly Gaming purchased a copy of Nascar 15 on the Playstation 3. This game has been sitting around waiting for someone to play it for a review. So I stepped up to the plate. Nascar 15 is suffering from an identity crisis. It is too similar to previous years, and it seems like every year there is a new publisher. Which makes the failures of the previous publishers a bit more understandable. At least in terms of failing Family Friendly Gaming.
We still have quizzes on loading screens, and country music. Plenty of options in Nascar 15. It does not pay to skip practices or qualifying in Nascar 15. If you do then you will get a low placement. It will also hurt you if you drop how many laps you have to do. Since it takes time to catch up to the other cars. Nascar 15 confused me. At times I could blow by other cars. Then they would pass me back and I could do nothing about it.
The voice acting in Nascar 15 is decent. I love how they expect us to race clean. The pit crew chief tells us to race clean in Nascar 15. The races in Nascar 15 can be fun or boring. It all depends on your perspective. It can be boring to try and be perfect in lap after lap. My mind starts to wander when I am expected to do the same thing over and over again. Crashes are a part of Nascar 15. So are the company ads. I should be paid for them to advertise to me.
I ran into a couple of glitches while playing Nascar 15. Some races start messed up. Like my car wanted to take a right turn and drive into the wall. Every single time I started this one race. Why is that? Some adjustment I made on the car? It takes time to get good in the career mode. Do not expect to start right at the top in the career. Which is really not realistic in my opinion.
I enjoyed my time with Nascar 15. It is not a perfect Nascar game. It looks nice, and it plays good (most of the time). When will it move to the Wii U, PS4, and Xbox One?
