A very good game which handled multiplayer races excellently!

The Good
The best part was the multiplayability. Whenever my friends and I would get together to play multi-player games, this one always worked right the first time, everytime. Even after other games improved their multiplayer aspect, this game was always fun to come back and play.

The Bad
The graphics needed some work which it got in NASCAR 3.

The Bottom Line
An excellent racing sim. Papyrus was well ahead of the others when it developed this simulation engine. While it was far from perfect, it still proved to be a great game to play.
