My father bought me a Wii game yesterday for my Christmas present. It is called Nascar The Game 2011! It is a really fun game. When you play the game, you feel like a real NASCAR* driver driving around the racing track; you can bump and crash to other cars. Cool! I feel so real in the game. It has pretty much all the controls in a NADCAR, from Turbo Boosts to Motor Brakes. The truck is really detailed, and it has 5 views! Including Cockpit view, Outside View, Top View, Roof View, Front view! Even though the game costs a lot, I think that the game is worth it’s price.
There are all forty drivers including Jeff Gordon, Jimme Johnson, Jeff Burton ( they are really good drivers). You can choose different paint schemes, for example, my favorite driver is Denny Hamlin, his car has a lot of paint schemes from FedEx, like FedEx Ground, FedEx Express, FedEx Air etc. His car might not be that fast but you can adjust that. Because you are allowed to go in the pits when you tell your pit crew you want to go by pressing C on your wii remote. Then you can change your tires, put more gas and make your car tighter or looser. If you make your car looser then it will be faster but hard to control and if you make your car tighter it will be slower but more control. I would recommend to put it in the middle of both.
There are many choices for different race tracks. I think that the game has all the tracks from the Las Vegas Motor Speedway to Daytona Beach. Personally, I think that Daytona Beach is the best race track. When you play NASCAR The Game 2011 there are about 4 different games you can play. You could play single player, career, multiplayer and Invitational ( part of career mode).
Career mode is the best for me because you get to pick the car you want to drive with. I picked the FedEx car, the driver is quite good. I already won two races out of four, so that it’s a really good start from a beginner like me. I think the best driver in career mode is Jeff Gordon. The race courses are in order, so you can’t skip the course. When you picked your course, you have to choose how many laps you want to drive. You also have a choice if you want to do qualifying! I always do qualifying, so I have a chance of being pole position because if you choose only race then you will start last place. Which is very hard because you have to pass 39 other cars. The first time I tried to play this game, it was quite confusing. I crashed about 11 times with other cars, I got a yellow flag* 10 times. When you play career mode you play in the Sprint Cup.
Overall I think this game is super fun, but in the beginning it is quite hard but when you get the hang of it, you will win and have so much fun! I rate it a 9 out of 10. I also think that any age over 6 would like this game. In other words you should try it!
There is another game related to this game which is called NASCAR Unleashed which is a bumping each other game.
* Yellow flag in NASCAR means that all cars have to restart
* Red Flag means the race has stopped
* Green Flag means the race is continued after a halt
* NASCAR (National Association for Stock Car Auto Racing) is a racing event
Here is the trailer for the game.
