NASCAR 09 is a racing game released in 2008 and was the last mainstream EA Sports NASCAR game.

Bad Qualities

  1. The game is lacking in presentation.
  2. No manufacturers in any of the series. Generic decals are there in their place.
  3. A huge lack of licensed drivers, even in the Sprint Cup.
  4. The racing itself is repetitive, which is disappointing.
  5. The PS3 version suffers from texture rips, clipping, and slowdown.
  6. False advertising: The PS2 version touts a "Family Play" mode. The game doesn't have multiplayer other than online which went offline years ago.
  7. Clumsy interface.
  8. The back of the PS2 version’s cover misspells Jimmie Johnson’s name, showing unprofessionalism.
  9. EA’s online policies are unpolished.
  10. The mobile version has an outdated car model (the generation 4 cars, used from 1992 to 2007).
  11. The cover itself looks unprofessional, as while the headlights on Jeff Gordon’s car were replaced, the headlights on Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s car weren’t.
  12. The sponsors for custom cars are outdated; notably, Western Auto (a brand that went defunct in 2004) is present, while Kmart uses the 1990-2004 logo instead of its current one.

Good Qualities

  1. Jeff Gordon’s green-screen mentoring is well-done.
  2. Decent controls.
  3. The Sprint Driver Challenges are fun.
  4. Great graphics for 2008.
  5. The Career Mode is a huge improvement.
