NASCAR Heat 2 reviews and comments

HI Nascar Fans, I gave everything and now have to give up. Just don't Get my Logitech Driving Force GT steering wheel running. Have tried everything including nous S.cfg nothing goes. The Game doesn't even find the Steering Wheel, despite deleting all other Key Assignments. So such a Sham ... I haven't seen Wheel Support at all. My Logitech runs at NASCAR Heat Evo. Great without Prob's, why can't you just patch a Control Setup window (Configure Controllers) to it, as you would with Heat ... Now I need a Beer!!!!! Soo, now after 1-many Beers later, I still got it. After I really tried everything, the last Attempt was to completely reinstall my Win 10, so not an update or soo, but quite fresh with Pat. Change and format. And what can I say, now don't funz the Steering Wheel with NASCAT HEAT 2. What is strange is that the Steering Wheel worked smoothly for all other Games until then. I would also Like to thank the "704Games Customer Support," which really have over 3 Weeks, trying to help ME by e-Mail, DAMKE!!!!! Now I'm just saying: Boogity, boogity, boogity---green green "Dicker neck makes fast" Brombi

Solid NASCAR Game Much Good, but unfortunately also many BUT ... + Finally all NASCAR Classes + All major Drivers of the 2017 season + All tracks of the 2017 season + Tracks themselves very well implemented ... But quite detailed Around + Optional with Stages, but ... AI doesn't use tactical Pit stops + GreenFlag Pit stops nicely animated, but ... There are never errors of the Crew + Optional With Yellow phases, but ... No PaceCar, and the Yellow Phases are not triggered in every Crash + cars look great, but ... Engine Sounds unfortunately not V8 worthy + Cockpit view succeeded, but ... Hardly Any differences in interior view (E.g. Driver Gloves always blue) + Optional with Penalties, but ... No Drive-through Penalties, AI does not get any Penalties at all + Netter Career Mode in which you have to work your Way up to the Cup with sporadic Missions in the trucks + Long races feel authentic, but ... You can't Cache + Cute Animations, but ... No Original Driver animated + Individual creation of your own Pain-shirt, but ... Only 3 Race numbers to select + Good AI, makes Mistakes, fights for Places ... But on Circuit Courses and Shorttracks even at the highest Level too weak + Very good Control on Ovals and easy Driving in the Pulk, but ... Unnatural Cross-standing when Braking + Online Racing finally with AI, but ... Some Settings are missing (Strength of AI, manual start of the Session, etc.) + Very good Country/Rock Soundtrack Overall, it makes me Fun, despite the Weaknesses. Especially online Races with full Driver's Field in Daytona, Michigan or Texas are a great Experience. Verdict: It's an Improvement to NH1, but unfortunately not the hoped-for Revelation. I give 7/10 Points for NASCAR Fans, 5/10 Points for Motorsport fans.
