NASCAR Heat 4 on PS4 Review

My husband and oldest son got the chance to review a free copy of the new NASCAR Heat 4 on PlayStation 4 from 704Games. My son isn’t normally into NASCAR the same way my husband is. My husband's parents are big fans of NASCAR so he's grown up watching it with his parents. Although my son isn't really into NASCAR, both him and my husband appreciate and respect the work the crews and drivers do on and off the track, and were a little surprised when they played NASCAR Heat 4 how much fun they had.




If you haven’t played a NASCAR Heat game before, this FOURTH game is a great place to start. It offers the full range of drivers from the main Monster Energy NASCAR Cup Series, plus the support classes of the NASCAR XFINITY. My husband was quite surprised when Tony Stewart, the former NASCAR Cup champion and owner of dirt track Eldora Raceway, shows up in the game’s fictional Xtreme Dirt Tour series.



There are 38 tracks in total, including the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval. All tracks from all 3 NASCAR National Series are available to play in NASCAR Heat 4. Also, Martinsville Night is available in offline modes if you pre-ordered the gold edition of NASCAR Heat 4. There are 38 tracks in total including the Charlotte Motor Speedway Roval.

NASCAR Heat 4 is the latest and most robust in the series, with:

- More customization options
- A deeper career mode
- All new graphics and audio packages
- Improved physics and handling
- 38 tracks and over 150 teams and drivers
- Integrated eNASCAR Heat Pro League esports and online play


One thing the guys didn’t enjoy was when they were in career mode the last two cars always caught up to them with about two laps to go and then slow way down just in front of them and they had no way of catching them. That part of the game didn't seem realistic, it felt like more work than fun. Career mode in the shop feels like a mobile game. Picking your engineer and suspension mechanics is cool but it’s just a stock photo of random people no real presentation of shop atmosphere just photos not even images of cars. NASCAR Heat 4 I think has a ways to go to get the quality of the EA games in the past.



Overall, it's a good game with a great campaign mode and nice feels from handling the cars. The option to customize your experience is awesome and graphics were pretty cool too. It will take a much longer time to get to know all the new tricks and tracks that NASCAR Heat 4 offers. There is so much to see how much you are able to grow, as a driver, within these new parameters. I feel like the structure is still there, however, for a game, that will challenge a player’s strengths and minimize the effects of their weaknesses.

Bottom line it is really fun to play and the best I've seen in a racing game. NASCAR Heat 4 is available on Xbox One, Xbox One S, Xbox One X, PlayStation 4, PlayStation 4 Pro, and PC. For more information about NASCAR Heat 4, head to www.nascarheat.com.
