NASCAR Heat 5 is nearly a carbon copy of last year’s game, especially if you partake in the career mode. As with my review of last year’s NASCAR Heat 4, that year’s previous year’s NASCAR Heat 3 had a good thing going for it and was the same solid game. NASCAR Heat 5 is still that same solid game; it’s unfortunate that we get no significant improvements this year.
NASCAR Heat 4 is this series’ most solid title to date but also the one with the most minimal of changes. NASCAR Heat 3 had a good thing going for it, so kudos to the team for keeping Heat 4 so close to what we got in 3. That’s not to say there aren’t some flaws and things I would like to see improved.
