Basically, then, if you skipped last year’s NASCAR Heat 4 and are looking to pick up a new NASCAR game, NASCAR Heat 5 is the one to grab, no doubt. It is indeed the best NASCAR game to date. There’s such a small margin between them, however, that unless you’ve got a wad of cash burning a hole in your pocket, there’s no real reason to pick this up if you do already own NASCAR Heat 4.
The racing is fun, fast, and fluid. The career mode is engaging and replayable without becoming overly complicated, and the multiplayer offers a fun experience, especially with a friend sharing the couch with you. If you’re looking for a good, solid racing experience, with the option for a deeper simulation, you could do a lot worse than NASCAR Heat 5.
All in all, NASCAR Heat 5 is just a bad game. Being in an extremely competitive genre of the gaming industry, it has a lot of headway to make in order to convince someone to choose it over the more recognizable competitors that are widely available. If it were me, I would wait for the next iteration in the franchise, which looks as thought it will be on a brand new engine.
