    NASCAR Racing 1999 3

    Developed by Papyrus, Sierra’s line of NASCAR products is known not for style and flash but for realism and accuracy. NASCAR Racing 1999 has some modest improvements. The graphics are very similar to NASCAR 2, with minor improvements, while the audio, interface, and gameplay are unchanged. What is different here is the presence of 11 […]
