It was my 10 year old, Thomas, who was most interested in NASCAR. He is new to playing video games (other than Minecraft) on our XBox One, but racing games are his favourite. When looking for games, I try to find something that is easy to understand because I’m not much help with them. We want something that is easy enough for Thomas to figure out how to play (specifically using the controller) on his own without having to google directions over-and-over. We have had several games in the past where figuring out the controls were simply too complicated for him, so he would give up easily.
NASCAR Heat 2 is fairly easy to understand so Thomas is able to play without becoming too frustrated with the controller. It is visually interesting, fast paced, with realistic driving action. He has a lot of practice to do before he gets really good at it, but he’s enjoying playing on the weekends.
We need to get a second controller, and once we do the boys will be able to play together using the split screen mode (which will either be really FUN or a fight waiting to happen… it really could go either way with my boys – lol).
NASCAR Heat 2 is rated E for Everyone.
NASCAR Heat 2 is available to purchase now for $69.99 on XBox One and PS4 at EB Games, Best Buy and amazon.ca. It can also be purchased digitally for XBox One for $64.99 and PS4 for $66.99 and on Steam for $54.99.
