    I need help, which one should I buy? I love both sports and cant make up my mind. Need your opinions.

    P.S. Is there any sales going on for these games?

    NASCAR Thunder 2003 hands down. Although I know nothing about NHL 2002. Just read the NASCAR Thunder 2003 on PS2 thread for all the great comments on the game.

    Here's another vote for Nascar Thunder 2003. Some of the reviews over on operationsports.com for nhl 2003 aren't too favorable. Where as Nascar is a damn good game.

    I love both series but I'd have to say get Nascar Thunder 2003. I'm having a blast with it.

    thanks guys, I was leaning towards Nascar so I will go for that. Now if I can sell my Mario Sunshine I will be all set.

    Different strokes for different folks. It's not all driving in circles. Kinda like skating back and forth, back and forth an entire game. Sounds exciting. [​IMG]

    BTW, I'm a huge hockey fan. I've had season tickets for the Sharks. I downloaded the demo of NHL 2003 and it's just 2002 with some new animations. Nascar Thunder 2003 adds alot more. It's alot more difficult. I picked Nascar over hockey, this time.

    The demo is pretty limited. I mean, you could play it and say that it's just NHL 99 with a few new animations.

    I guess I could, but I didn't. I'll probably end up picking up NHL 2003 in the end, but for now, like I said earlier, I picked Nascar.

    BTW, I've purchased every NHL game from EA on the PC since '99. It's not that I don't like the series. At this time, I feel the minor changes don't justify its purchase. When the Thunderpuck community releases their rosters and settings to make for a somewhat realistic game, I'll buy it.

    Ive heared good things about Nascar and since no store here had NHL 2003 yet(i really want a hockey game not Hitz ) I decided to pick up Nascar and ill wait to see how NHL2k3 is before getting a hockey game. I also picked up Advance wars for GBA. Its time i start building my game collection again. Its been a while since buying a platform game

    I picked up Nascar on my way home and started me career. This game is awesome. I took the pole at Daytona, and ended up in third. Las Vegas gave me some trouble, but Bristol looks like its going to be fun. I wish there were more songs on the soundtrack though. I ended up turning the music off.
