||NASCAR Kart Racing
NASCAR 09 is a racing game released in 2008 and was the last mainstream EA Sports NASCAR game.
- The game is lacking in presentation.
- No manufacturers in any of the series. Generic decals are there in their place.
- A huge lack of licensed drivers, even in the Sprint Cup.
- The racing itself is repetitive, which is disappointing.
- The PS3 version suffers from texture rips, clipping, and slowdown.
- False advertising: The PS2 version touts a "Family Play" mode. The game doesn't have multiplayer other than online which went offline years ago.
- Clumsy interface.
- The back of the PS2 version’s cover misspells Jimmie Johnson’s name, showing unprofessionalism.
- EA’s online policies are unpolished.
- The mobile version has an outdated car model (the generation 4 cars, used from 1992 to 2007).
- 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.
- The sponsors for custom cars are outdated; notably, Western Auto (a brand that went defunct in 2004) is present, while Kmart uses the 1990-2004 logo instead of its current one.
- Jeff Gordon’s green-screen mentoring is well-done.
- Decent controls.
- The Sprint Driver Challenges are fun.
- Great graphics for 2008.
- The Career Mode is a huge improvement.
