NASCAR Heat 4
Despite its limitations, NASCAR Heat 4 contains enough improvements to make it attractive
NASCAR Heat 4 may not look different, at first, but it doesn’t take long before I can feel just how much better it has become.
NH4 is still fun to play, but there just isn't enough newness here to make upgrading to this version a necessity. If you own, love and still play NH3, I'm not sure you'll find NH4 a must-have for your collection.
NASCAR Heat 4 still has its issues, but Monster Games' long overdue overhaul finally makes this the game that the series has always tried to be.
A dated and niche license receives the game that it deserves - shallow, simplistic and unsatisfying. Turn left before you get to the checkout.
NASCAR Heat 4 without a doubt should be in contention for one of the better racing games of the year.
NASCAR Heat 4 is an improved racer for NASCAR fans that is as refined as the series has ever been, but it struggles to decide its identity or compete technically with its peers.
One of the biggest complaints in the Heat series has been that the yearly improvements are incremental, and that is probably a fair assessment to a degree. What NASCAR Heat 4 delivers is the most significant year-to-year improvement we have seen yet, and some of the most important regarding on-track progression. If you have been a fan of the series before this year or have shown even the slightest interest in joining the fold, NASCAR Heat 4 delivers some substantial improvements and added depth with this year's release.
NASCAR Heat 4 gets it right with properly replicating NASCAR and the racing is the best the series has seen.
NASCAR Heat 4 is a game that does its best to provide significant improvements while still feeling familiar to fans.
