NASCAR '14 is overall a good game. It has more features than 13especially in the career mode. Which in turn makes it a lot more compelling to play. For example before a race you will have a budget to build a car with. You choose whether you would like an improved engine, chassis... Etc like the previous game however you will have to buy the upgrade with the budget you are allocated each and every race, the better you perform in a season the more budget you will have to play around with. The R&D section is also much improved comapred to the previous game.
The graphics are slighty improved compared to 13. The biggest thing I noticed was the Anti Aliasing looks a lot crisper. However due to this I have expericed a few frame rate drops throughout races (Running on 2 GTX 680's). But I am confident that they will be ironed out with later patchs.
The handling is much the same as 13. However if you choose to turn off the assists in this game it is a lot less forgiving and you will spin out and die :) Or is that just me? If you have no experience with the previous game or how it handles be advised that this is not a keyboard friendly game. You will need a gamepad or even better a wheel. I personally use the Logitech G27 and have found that even after turning the sensitivety down to 0 it was still too sensitive.
Would I recommed buying it for £29.99 or your regional equvelent?
No (Unless on sale). If you want to play a NASCAR game and don't own 13 I would serioulsy suggest you buy that first! HOWEVER If you do own 13, enjoy playing it and don't mind dropping the cash then I would definitely suggest buying this game. Its an extremely good "Upgrade" game.
