NASCAR Heat 3 reviews and comments

Hated: not being able to configure the flying commands as I would like, example put the brake and the accelerator on the paddles of the steering wheel no longer using my legs, I can not use the pedal. Beloved: nothing at the moment.

Apart from the improved graphics the noises of the engines are ridiculous, no possibility to keep the replays, the possibility of a general adjustment of the car is against Super. the roar of the NASCAR engines brought back that of the second world war hunts. impossible to remove your name in the middle of the track, that it's ugly, no FOV adjustment.?????

Graphics worthy of a game of 15 years ago. The circuits are not well reproduced in relation to reality. Poor porting to PC. Clearly a console game. (the menu shows the keys A, B, X, Y) Non-adaptive AI. Difficult to find the right difficulty for his level. Physics of cars not too realistic. I was thinking of playing a simulation game, but it's too arcade.

Every Year again ... The same License Garbage from 704. Current Tracks, Cars and Drivers are great, even during your Career you really got something up-you start with the Dirt tracks. But the whole thing is made unfathomably SCHLECHT. Graphic is better on the Phone, Control a Joke, Vehicles drive as appeared on and plus the jerk graphics on a good System. Fingers off!

HI, I'm a big Nascar Fan. The last Part I bought was "Heat" and now it was time to try Heat 3 and update to 2019. Yet after 74 Minutes I gave the Game back. I didn't look at the Graphics but for me no Racing feeling came up. The Pit Stops are not always displayed and still not all Crews are placed in the Box. I don't see the Gap in the Race placing in the second when I'm 18. The Driving Sensation is measured when I drive someone on it he stays in the Lane. The Damage Model is still poorly implemented. At WRC 7 it is also possible that the Parts fly off nicely as they do to the e.g. Bonnet, doors, Etc. I didn't Enjoy it and thus goes back.

A game of NASCAR super easy to play and not frustrating like the majority of NASCAR games that are always too difficult with AI fools and never easy to adjust, but in this game no you can do errands without losing control at all times and even s I you hang slightly another car, put the AI a hard automatic or at 98% and you're going to have fun. The last time I had fun doing Daytona is in NASCAR racing 2003 in Arcade mode. The real challenge to ride in a group and calculate the exceedances and ride several rounds and make strategy. The negatives the graphics are means of the kind IRACING but correct and the sound of your car is very bad. It's a console game but good. 4 out of 5 for playability 2 of 5 for graphic quality
