My son is 14 and loves playing video games. Finding video games that he enjoys and I actually want him to play is not an easy task at all. Many of the games that he wants to play are way too violent for me to feel comfortable with. When I heard about NASCAR Unleashed, I was excited because he loves cars and racing games and I knew this would be something that he'd enjoy.
NASCAR Unleashed is a new game from Activision that is available on the XBox 360. NASCAR Unleashed is an arcade style game with a NASCAR racing theme. Players will get to play on real life NASCAR sanctioned race tracks with some fun changes. Some of the real life tracks you're racing on include Daytona International Speedway, Chicagoland Speedway, Homestead-Miami Speedway, Martinsville Speedway and Talladega Superspeedway. As you're racing on the tracks, you get to break away into new areas like the city, the woods or a harbor which gives the player a nice break from the traditional tracks.
There are fifteen different NASCAR drivers that appear in the game including Dale Earnhardt Jr., Jeff Gordon, Kyle Busch, and Joey Logano. It's great to be able to choose your favorite driver to play!
Your goal while playing is to place a certain position or to get a certain time for the race. If you don't manage to meet this goal, you will have to do it over to move on. There are also two secondary objectives to accomplish as well in order to receive more race points. There are more challenges you can complete during each game to earn more boost on your boost meter. Boost gives you a burst of speed when you choose to use it.
