Bill Elliott's NASCAR Challenge lives up to its title, providing authentic and detailed racing action. Definitely a must-have for racing fans.
The NASCAR challenge in this realistic racer from Konami is to come out victorious in a championship season featuring four famous tracks. Bill Elliott's expertise is behind you as you take to the wheel and try to master the touch steering of a fast moving car and the banks curves of treacherous courses. Select your car from three NASCAR drivers and have it customized to your won specifications. You have control over the transmission, spoiler angle, gear ratio and tire size. Your decisions will affect your car's performance on the track.

Even if one was a NASCAR fan, the sense of speed here is powerful slow. 184 mph shouldn’t feel like a gentle wind caressing one’s sideburns, that’s fer darn tootin’. The cars control decently, though, and you can take advantage of actual racing techniques, like drafting. If you like NASCAR and Nintendo, you have limited options, but if you like NASCAR and you own current consoles, Bill Elliott won’t scratch your everlasting itch.
Bill Elliott is delivered in a NASCAR racing game that has a few good effects but never manages to wrap them together with good technique.
Unfortunately, the handling is extremely floaty, and while Novice difficulty feels too easy, the Rookie and Pro levels feature infuriating AI that does the already poor control no favors. There’s a lot of nice window dressing surrounding this title, but it’s covering up something much less enticing.
