  1. from reading these notes... if they pull it off and these fixes do indeed work...I will be making the purchase.. had been holding off because of weak AI challenge, pit strategy and yellow flags- now it looks like all 3 are in the  patch..
    Can't wait for some of you who have been playing get to test and let us know..
    704 games- kudos- unlike the Madden team, it appears you really did listen to the fan base and worked hard to fix some of the biggest gripes.
    Been on the fence about buying this. Is it worth it this year?

    NH2 still has it share of issues, but it is leaps and bounds above last year's game in terms of depth, content and overall polish. If 704 Games continues on this trajectory, NH3 will be one of the best NASCAR games ever made.
