NASCAR Heat 4 is the fourth (after the 2016 reboot) release of a series of racing games dedicated to the NASCAR series. As in the case of previous productions under this sign, the title was developed by Monster Games studio, which has produced such popular games as NASCAR Heat, NASCAR Heat 2002 and NASCAR: Dirt to Daytona.
In the game we're driving licensed cars and fighting to win the NASCAR Xfinity, NASCAR Gander Outdoors Truck and Monster Energy NASCAR Cup series, plus we can try our hand at Xtreme Dirt Tour where we race on gravel tracks. The game has 38 authentic tracks and over 150 teams that took part in the 2019 season.
The title allows you to adapt your driving model to your individual skills - experienced drivers can choose a simulation variant, while newcomers will appreciate the presence of an arcade variant. This is all the more important because the authors have introduced a number of realistic improvements, such as the possibility of choosing tyres to suit the ground type; sometimes our chances of winning may also be increased by the appropriate use of wind tunnels.
The pillar of NASCAR Heat 4 is a career mode in which we not only fight on the track, but also control the entire racing team. In addition, there is an extensive multiplayer mode waiting to be tested.
Compared to the previous part of the series, NASCAR Heat 4 boasts more beautiful graphics and a better sound layer (thanks to new engine sounds, among other things). In addition, the authors focused on the user interface, as well as on the artificial intelligence of the opponents.
