Game Description:Last year, the NASCAR franchise witnessed a rebirth with the addition of grudges and alliances. In NASCAR 2005, EA Sports takes the sportsmanship, or lack there of, one step further with post-race altercations -- complications off the track even affect the next race and could have further implications on your career. To add to the tension, drivers will also now be able to use an intimidation button while drafting to ride close to opponent's bumpers and attempt to force them out of the way. Other features for 2005 include a Career mode with ether driver or driver/owner paths as well as comples fan-loyalty implications, a total of 13 road courses (including 9 new tracks,) minigames in the NASCAR Speed Zone, and improvements to the graphics and audio for an even more realistic NASCAR experience.
The PC version of NASCAR 2005 was originally expected and listed as being in the works for 2005, but EA instead followed up with the first in a new franchise, NASCAR SimRacing.
