Just as its title suggests, NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona
is a racing fan's perfect dream. You'll get to try your hand at 31 different tracks, ranging from simple small-time dirt tracks using modified cars right up to racing the big time, highly popular events that racing fans love. In fact, the Career mode lets you try your hand at all four of the NASCAR
series including, Weekly Racing Series Presented by Dodge, Featherlite Modified Series, Craftsman Truck Series, and the Cup Series.
A couple of other modes of play include the Race the Pro series, Beat the Heat (in which you take on many different scenarios), and Multiplayer. And although each mode has its own fun built in, testing out each mode will help you a lot in the long run. Dirt to Daytona is a game that anyone can jump into and control, but just as in real life, races are won or lost by mere fractions of a second. So, the more you practice, the better you will become. Taking corners perfectly will result in wins, while the slightest slip may cost you dearly when you reach the harder difficulties in the game.
Hands down, the best part of Dirt to Daytona is the variety you'll face in each mode of play and with each track you race. But for gear heads out there, you'll find even more to do as the game allows you to tweak and customize your car in so many ways that it may boggle your mind. And for those of you (like me) who just want to race, you don't have to worry about a thing between races. All you have to do is sit back, and put the pedal to the medal.
