NASCAR Racing 2003 Season
(hx) 02:18 AM CET - Mar,19 2003

NASCAR Racing 2003 Season is the latest incarnation of Papyrus' NASCAR Racing series. The history of Papyrus and racing sim software spans almost an entire decade, with Indianapolis the Simulation, then release of NASCAR Racing 1 in the mid 90's, to the release of NASCAR Racing 2 in 1997, NASCAR Racing 3 in the latter part of 1999, NASCAR Racing 4 in 2001, and most recently, NASCAR Racing 2002 Season released just one year ago.

For those who don't know, NASCAR has always been popular in the south from its very inception and spread all up and down the east coast in the early years. At present day, NASCAR has seen growth nationwide and has beat out every other sport for the title of America's Sport. NASCAR features similarly prepared front-engined cars based loosely on American production sedans, these big cars with big engines and skinny tires are a real handful at speed, and when you throw 40+ cars together on the super-speedways, giant ovals or tri-ovals at the same time with speeds approaching 200 miles per hour, things can get interesting...

NASCAR Racing 2003 Season features all 23 NASCAR tracks (including the freshly renovated New Hampshire facility and Infineon Raceway - formerly known as Sears Point), driving tutorials and aids (toggle traction control, anti-lock brakes, and automatic shifting), an all-out arcade mode with indestructible cars, Enhanced Physics Model consulted with Jasper Motorsports and Goodyear - better physics than ever before, realistic vehicle response to damage (except high-speed collisions), save races and watch as replays, as if on TV and multiplayer support (up to 42 players per event).

In the game, you'll be able to run practice Sessions, Single Races, and full Championship Seasons. For each race, you can alter numerous settings, such as weather, number of laps, and number of competitors, etc. You can also tweak your car setup with a truly extensive set of options - compression, camber, caster, rebound, ride height, and numerous other configurable settings. You can choose from a complete race weekend with a timed practice, qualifying session, happy hour, and the actual race, or just skip to the race itself. It's definitely pretty much same as previous NASCAR titles.

So what's new in NASCAR Racing 2003? I'd say that the most notable changes in NASCAR Racing 2003 Season come in terms of its overall gameplay, the tweaks and improvements made to the physics engine and modifications designed to make the title as realistic as possible. You truly get the feel of having a 750-horsepower car at your control! They have also added a Pit Stop Frequency option that forces people to pit in shorter races, and "Adaptive Speed Control" and "Automatic AI strength" options. With "Adaptive Speed Control" option selected, the artificial intelligence attempts to match its performance with yours, so if you're driving poorly, your opponents decelerate to match your speed.

Overall, NASCAR Racing 2003 Season is hard-core racing simulation of the highest quality, all hard-core players will be satisfied enough, especially with the physics engine and atmosphere in the game. NASCAR Racing 2003 Season is not a big step forward from the previous NASCAR Racing title. But anyhow, Sierra and Papyrus have done a good job with this game and it's worth playing. If you plan to buy this game, be assured, this is no casual racer. It's like putting your money down on a real NASCAR machine. You must learn to drive it! Also don't forget the game is definitely made for people with a wheel and pedal set, so playing with keyboard only quite sucks. You can try this playable demo (119MB).

System requirements: Pentium II 450 MHz processor (Pentium III 800 MHz or higher recommended), 64 MB RAM (128 MB recommended), 16 MB Direct3D compatible video card (32MB recommended), 8X CD-ROM drive, DirectX 9.0, OpenGL* 1.1 or later (may not work on all cards and/or system configurations)

snd: 4/5 - pretty good, 3D sound support, variety of new sound effects, very similar to that of previous NASCAR
gfx: 4/5 - upgrades from 2002 significant, but not huge (the track textures, asphalt, grass, and the other textures are quite similar to N2002, but the lighting really makes the tracks come alive), better physics than ever before, save races and watch as replays, as if on TV, exterior scenery looks a bit dated, some clipping issues
playability: 5/5 - hard-core racing simulation of the highest quality, pretty good AI, Automatically adjusting AI option, Adaptive Speed Control option, most realistic vehicle response, multiplayer up to 42 players per event +solid netcode, 50 pages manual (good read for novices), not a big step forward from the previous NASCAR Racing title by Papyrus, no career modes
genre: car racing
release: February 2003
developer: Papyrus
publisher: Sierra
Overall: 82%

THIS GAME SEEMS LIKE IT WAS MADE IN THE 1990's . just look at the graphics. plus its got no orginal concept. Anyone can make "new" cars and "new" levels in a racing car game what else is there?

Thafastcatposted - Apr, 23 2003 - 01:29
ORIGINAL CONCEPTS ??? what are you talking about, this is a race sim !!! And you should see the graphics while racing, they`re top notch ! How can you judge a game without even playing it ?

cat eaterposted - May, 09 2003 - 03:23
nascar is dumb. too many cars on the track too many crashes. its pathetic. This game like nascar itself is pathetic. I think a simulation is not orginal because its a recreation of something that already exists. THus its not new, thus its not orginal. the graphics are not "top notch !" if you look at the screen shots you can tell. This game is basically the same as something produced 3 years ago except with slightly better graphics. ITS NOT EVEN WORTH RENTING. DON"T EVEN BOTHER PLAYING THE DEMO its a waste of YOUR TIME.

nascarboyposted - May, 28 2003 - 17:59
Well cat your obiously a newb and you havn't even played it. Go by a wheel meet me on the track so I can tear ya to pieces. I've played every papy game since nascar 1 and this one tops it all. I seriouly think you take this game for granted nor do you even care. Your a waste of my time as well as everyone elses. The physics are new, the cars are new, the tracks are new and updated to their real counter parks, not to mention ediing cars, modding the sounds and even making tracks for add-ons are endless. YOu can say nascar is dumb, but you'd think otherwise racing door to door a few inches apart from other cars at speeds of 120 and over depends on the track. If you never watched or played the game, then shut your trap because you have no idea what your talking about. Oh, and another thing, it's addicting and fun and I seriously doubht you could keep up with us online. I guess cause you cna't setup a car it's a waste of time. Oh boo hoo, ya know what your a 12 yr old spaz with a grudge against nascar and a game you can't even play. Get over it and move on.

cat eaterposted - May, 30 2003 - 06:54
unforuntaly i did play the game and YES i did use a WHEEL(what else would i use?) MR "NASCARBOY" talking bs about me is not going to change the fact that this game is a low shiner. First the graphics are not great they are average at best. the pit crew looks like something from 3 years ago ,look at the screen shots. in a game with limited scope such as this its necessary to have HIGH QUALITY and good detail. sadly this is not the case with this game. NASCAR IS A retarded racing league. the tracks need work, ITS GOT WAY TOO MANY CARS ON THE TRACK WHICH ALMOST ALWAYS LEADS TO A CRASH. its like trying to put 10 pigeons in a hold that can only hold 6. its totally stupidly run. YOU BET YOUR ASS I GOT A GRUDGE AGAINST NASCAR JUST LIKE I GOT A GRUDGE AGAINST POO. people don't need to waste there time in the sewer. same with this game. They are plenty of other better racing games. just cause you like shit does not mean the rest of the world does.normally i would say play the demo if i thought it was a bad game but this is worse than bad so much so its harmfull.

hugposted - Jun, 13 2003 - 07:30
I too , have just about drivin every racing game made for p.c.. Andi do Like nascar racing for what it takes to get a 7500 pound race car to go door to door at 200 miles per hour for 500 miles!. If your crashing your not very good......if you understand racing and are with good drivers this is the Greatest Nascar sim Ever made and will be for a lot of years!..........Notice the word sim , this is the greatest sim, as for arcade mode i dont beleave that this game is the best , i think there are better arcade style games out there but as for sim it is the best there is!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

say noposted - Jun, 20 2003 - 21:01
if you ever watch nascar then you know its dumb cause of the frequent crashes. maybe the racing league name to crashcar instead of nascar basically all you do is crash in this game like at least 3 times a race . i MFBS this game so hard its broken in half.

LakerFan2kposted - Jun, 23 2003 - 07:07
Its your fault if you expect to not crash because your 7000+ lbs car cant turn on a dime. Its as real as it gets; just missing the fumes and the commentary. The graphics are great, once again its your fault if your machine cant handle the pressure. And as for the crashes in RL... go watch Talladega, except for the occaisional big one, there aint no wreck every other lap.

Brkddyposted - Jun, 27 2003 - 00:53
Why don't the NASCAR nuts rate the game? Not all these MO-FOs that think PS2 is the best thing ever made. I think that the PS2 players shuld keep there mouths shut and stick to PS2 caus' all there going to do is bomb on the graphics of the avrige PC. I also think that a car with 750 horse power is not going to have vary good handling but, I still like NASCAR caus' it's chalanging.

Mike Lenyoposted - Jul, 02 2003 - 20:33
This game is top notch,and if you think NASCAR is dumb go find a faster growing sport with more fans! The amount of foucus required alone to play this game makes it worth wild

tposted - Jul, 14 2003 - 16:53
focus hahaha you so funny Mike Lenyo. This game is so poorly constructed. Maybe you need lots of focus cause that brain of yours is weak. but utimately is a poor quality game.

geo paulposted - Jul, 21 2003 - 17:06
When i played this game i thought the tires on the cars look like something from a 1950's vehicle. its so boring. plus its NASCAR. the name says it all. A long history of patheticness and major crashes. Plus stupid looking cars. Nascar has a major fan base well so does barbie how many good barbie games do you see out there? umm none. This is just a off the wall attempt at a racing game. The graphics suck, the gameplay sucks the sound sucks. there is absolutely no part of this game with any style its just got the stupid retarted nascar atmosphere. I think cat eater summmed it up best when he said "NASCAR IS A retarded racing league." i totally agree. if you want a racing game try midnight club 2. fuck thats way better than this bullshit.

Antposted - Jul, 22 2003 - 02:40
ok,ok,ive read the comments and i see how all you ps2 freaks think nascar racing is a crappy sim. i got a question for you. name any other game that gets as real as this one, and maybe someone might actually listen to you. as far as the crashes, learn to drive.

posted - Jul, 22 2003 - 18:02
if this game was real you would start the race with your car already on fire. thats how bad the crashes in nascar are. nascar is an like a bunch of drunk guys running around a track. its has no style at all. the problem is they based the game on nascar. when something sucks and you base you game on it then obviously your game will suck.

Serafposted - Jul, 24 2003 - 21:56
This is cool game!I like to crash car and look replay how it was-its amazing!I'm from Latvia.

q-beeeeposted - Jul, 29 2003 - 06:39
this game sucks ass. it cheap and reminds me of the paper bag princess book. its like a game with a pretty box cover with shit action. its like a marketers dream come true. the game is shit so lets hype the box cover and get some bullshit reviews done.

reemandut@hotmail.coposted - Aug, 06 2003 - 02:05
Nascar rules fuck all of you all

posted - Aug, 07 2003 - 03:15
Nascar cars, look like card board box's. Its pathetic. Watching a bunch of intoxicated chickens running a race is more exciting as Nascar. Nascar has no style.

ONE OF YOUR DERN BUSposted - Aug, 16 2003 - 06:15
NASCAR started off as a bunch of moonshiners getting away from the cops in old cars. Over time, thay "hopped up" their cars to outrun the cops. IT WAS NOT JUST A SPORT THAT 'POPPED UP OVER NIGHT' WITH A BUNCH OF RED NECK NASCAR OFFICIALS DAMN IT!!!! GET IT RIGHT BEFORE YOU TYPE!!!!

posted - Aug, 16 2003 - 18:14
I find nascar to be highly uninteresting and boring in terms of a racing league. The main reason for this is that nascar cars are not really high performance cars. The cars look ugly and they got too many cars on the track. its not really racing its more like follow the leader. thats why nascar is retarded. NOW YOU HAVE TO ASK YOURSELF DO I WANT TO PLAY A GAME BASED ON SOMETHING THAT HAS NO STYLE AND IS POOR IMPLEMENTED? WELL THE ANSWER IS CLEAR NO WAY IN HELL! I REJECT THIS CRAP! THIS GAME DOES NOT EVEN BELONG IN THE BARGIN BIN!

chummy@f1.composted - Aug, 17 2003 - 04:08
WTF, this is the closer you can get to reality without a fireproof suit and a helmet. Thumbs up! Who cares if the cars are ugly, you have a 800whp rocket in your hand and you must be good to handle it. It's not for everyone.

posted - Aug, 20 2003 - 17:57
maybe you need a guidance check on that "rocket" buddy.

Why in the world are you people coming on here to talk trash about games?? Don't you have anything better to do with your time??

I agree with Racing_Girl.

If feel its important to tell people this game is shit so they don't waste there money and time playing it. after all Time is the most precious resource.

mAdmAnposted - Sep, 20 2003 - 19:10
If you don´t like nascar IRL you shure have trouble like this game. Becouse this is wery near reallity. But If you are no fan of nascar, then don´t even bother putting up a comment.

jokestr2003posted - Sep, 27 2003 - 04:56 faggots suck if you dont like that NASCAR game, i mean god you can customize your own cars for shit sake. i'm just tryin to say if all you people (and not all of you) can talk about is comparing it to that of PS2 etc, THEN GO FUCK AN ELM TREE.

subway fugitiveposted - Oct, 05 2003 - 06:49
HA PS2 LAME anyone who would rather play a PS2 is lame, you sony suckers dont know what real is thats why you buy that lame "console" system, get a computer (upgradable, hi rez plasma screen blah blah blah) and play a real game, did they ever come out with a ____simulator for a ps2 no because they cant handle real games they are for pussies who want to play turn based gay ass strategy games, try a real game and boo to sony

Bposted - Nov, 29 2003 - 21:39
I have all the racing sims there are and none of them are even close to being a sim except for the papy series of games. I don't even drive the nascars in the game or even drive them on the ovals, I think that going fast and turning right is a bit boring. The road tracks are awesome. Anyone who says that this game is Crap must be a lame ass dumb shit who can't drive for shit in the "real world". U must be have been one of the statistics in the TV series worlds worst drivers !!! I only seem to see that the lamers who have anything negative are these stupid lame ass console players or people who can't drive for shit in the real world.

PENSKE2posted - Jul, 13 2004 - 03:43
this game is a sim, not just something to play for 30 minutes and have "fun". this game is serious stuff all u nascar haters fuck off!

Newman12posted - Jul, 13 2004 - 03:52
yea i agree. this is a sim. for u that said "OO IS THIS GAME SO PATHETIC THAT ONLY NASCAR FANS LIKE IT" why would you buy a nascar game if u dont like nascar? thats just stupid!

I like the papy racing sims more than the microsoft ones, I get the feeling papy puts more time and effort into them.

The Papy series rocks.So I say anybody who doesn't like the simracing is stupid as crap!!!

Nascar_Fanposted - Aug, 29 2005 - 13:59
All im gonna say is how can any of you people talk trash about nascar 2003 sim??i dont believe i have ever seen any of your names on any game that has been made so go play your bang bang games and look at your unrealistic game play that they have!!! oh i got killed hmm spawn time is 10 then i get to try and kill real is nascar racing you dont get to start fresh in 15 seconds your out for the race so it takes skill unlike your bang bang games!!!! get some skill and come race....and if you still think the graphics suck go ask mommy for more money and buy a real computer with a better graphics card which you probably use onboard graphics anyways...and like thay say in the commercial say what you want about nascar we cant hear you!!!
