PS2 gears up for NASCAR experience.
PC NASCAR fans have been indulged with above average racers from Sierra and Papyrus every year, with games like Nascar Legends, and Nascar Racing 3&4. But now is PS2's time to shine, as Infogrames’ NASCAR Heat 2002 is the 2nd NASCAR title for the PS2, following the work of EA’s NASCAR 2001. It will include the ability to challenge all of the top drivers in the sport, as you go head-to-head on actual NASCAR tracks of the 2001 Winston Cup season. Selectable racing modes are a key feature in NASCAR Heat 2002, and is one of the main aspects Infogrames focused upon. Players choose between Beat the Heat, Race the Pro, Head-To-Head, Championship, and Single Race modes that delivers intense racing adversity powered by the PS2. Single Race and Championship modes put gamers in the seat of powerful stock cars as they try to best the stars of NASCAR on just one track or the tracks of the entire 2001 NASCAR Winston Cup Season. More than 36 all-new Beat the Heat racing scenarios, introduced by drivers like Jeff Gordon, give players the feeling of a one-on-one experience with the heroes of NASCAR. In Race the Pro players try to out-run top drivers in the sport by racing against "phantom" cars driven by real NASCAR Winston Cup drivers. Head-to-Head mode allows two fans to race against each other for supreme NASCAR bragging rights.
Normal and Expert difficulty levels ensure both beginners and pros alike can enjoy the thrill of NASCAR racing, while state-of-the-art car modeling adds to NASCAR Heat 2002's extensive feel with a sense of speed, realistic car damage, dents, scratches, sparks and collisions that put players in the driver's seat for the Winston Cup championship. NASCAR Heat 2002 includes 2001 season car art, drivers and tracks; 36 Beat the Heat challenges designed and introduced by top NASCAR drivers; 19 real-world NASCAR tracks; 25 Winston Cup drivers and 23-car racing packs in single-player modes. Developed by Monster Games, Inc., NASCAR Heat 2002 is now available.
