CheatCC says - "Let me preface this by saying that not only do I enjoy racing games, but I'm also a casual NASCAR fan. So, the promise of the return of a video game franchise for NASCAR intrigued me, having enjoyed playing past NASCAR Thunder titles and eager to see how developments in recent racing games (i.e. the tuning options in Forza) would impact NASCAR 2011. In regards to the latter, we're given some nice tuning options to customize our car to handle how we'd like it to handle, adding in a subtle strategy to the game. For the former, however, this plays nothing like NASCAR Thunder. NASCAR The Game 2011 has spun out, wrecked, and been sent back to the garage. Or at least it should be."
