    heat was the first title i sim raced in on pc. it was really good for its day and they allowed a LOT of mod support. People are probably still playing nheat mods lol

    Great news though. Racing is blowing up and we should have a lot of titles to pick from in the next year or two

    Is it a sim racer, or more like NFL Blitz?

    the one i played had an arcade mode as well as a hardcore mode with no assists. there were normal and hc servers you could join depending on what you were comfortable with

    Nfl blitz, wow namedrop - that game was nuts

    NASCAR Heat definitely had a sim mode with a very fun and forgiving arcade mode

    It had some real cool real life scenarios to replicate as well , allen bestwick hosted

    Ha! This is crazy. Nascar Heat was the first racing game I ever played online in 2001. That's how I ran into Nascar 4 and subsequent Papyrus Sims. It's arcadish as hell though.

    really? dam bad memory I guess, - anyway based on a recent interview it looks like a singleplayer focused game - they even backtracked on the dedi server announcement, with a MP system getting shoehorned in this game may not pan out - with a modded track/car in AMS being a far better choice

    I still remember it. it was arcade style out of the box and unpatched, but as I said earlier there was a mode that enabled sim like physics called Hardcore that they patched in eventually. it was most certainly not arcadish if you checked that box. Wasn't as icy feeling as papy sims but definitely still plenty demanding.

    Sad to say I've all but lost hope for the newest nheat already. Maybe they will surprise us...

    its crap confirmed. got curious after the negative reviews so i watched a lot of youtube videos and it is really bad.
    i think that the guys "defending" it are just hoping for some future patch that fixes everything.

    So it seems like iRacing is most modern option for a Nascar sim right followed by Nascar Racing 2003 Season then?

    you would be correct - for the best real feel oval racing - however the stock car extreme mod running in automobilista is pretty good, with some work it could rival
