Critic Reviews for NASCAR Heat Evolution

There are some great moments out on the track thanks to the competitive A.I. Elsewhere the feature set offers enough to keep you interested

NASCAR Heat Evolution brings the white-knuckle last lap, even for 24th place

The entertaining racing delivers a good foundation for the series, but there’s just not enough depth in this package to consider this a complete experience.

With its 40-car grids creating exciting racing, NASCAR Heat Evolution is surprisingly fun, but is unlikely to appeal to anyone but fans of the sport.

NASCAR Heat Evolution is a fantastic game in practice, but has a terrible presentation elsewhere. At the end of the day, this makes NASCAR Heat Evolution a disappointing title rather than a full-fledged trip into victory lane. With some amazing features available, but near impossible to enjoy, NASCAR Heat Evolution is a game that will only please hardcore NASCAR or racing game fans.

NASCAR Heat Evolution is the only dedicated NASCAR show in town on Xbox One and PlayStation 4, but it’s sadly beaten in terms of depth and realism by games that were released over a decade ago.

NASCAR Heat Evolution is a thoroughly disappointing release. It’s pretty bad when PlayStation 2 games were more fully featured and fun to play than a new release in 2016. Monster Games have proven in the past that they are a talented developer, and NASCAR fans deserve a better video game than this. I’m just left wondering where everything went wrong. Dig up an old Electronic Arts NASCAR game instead, you’ll have more fun.

I was surprised at how much fun the career mode could be for someone who doesn’t follow the sport religiously. Monster Games has reinvigorated the series they began, and it is a solid product for someone looking for authentic NASCAR racing. It’s a shame the online multiplayer is lacking, and I would want to see what the developers could do with a more robust game engine.
