For even more on the racing game, check out my NASCAR Heat 2 review. Here’s a snippet of what I had to say about the simulation racer:

Additionally, like the first game there are still some graphical issues that crop up pretty often. A lot of the backgrounds look pretty poor while driving (especially when you can see past the race track), and there’s some annoying quirks to the racing where the player can’t change the camera. The latter issue had me accidentally running into other racers when playing in first-person, so I eventually wound up using the hood view (which surprised me since I almost never use that camera perspective). None of these flaws are enough to really harm the experience significantly, but these are annoyances.

NASCAR Heat 2 is a definite step up from its predecessor, but it’s still lacking a layer of polish that would propel it towards appealing to a larger racing audience. Those who want an authentic NASCAR racer should be satisfied with this year’s installment, but there’s just too many minor issues that bog the racing down a level. Still, it’s clear that Monster Games listened to feedback of the original, and they’re certainly on the right track.

NASCAR Heat 2 update 1.04 is available now on Xbox One, PC and PlayStation 4.
