NASCAR Rumble is a racing game by Electronic Arts for the PlayStation. The player or players can race through 18 different courses set in six different areas collecting powerups to aid them. The game was met with fairly positive reviews, and earned an 80% on GameRankings. This game is a great departure to many NASCAR games, as this game is an arcade racing featuring various tracks and Mario Kart esque powerups. A non-NASCAR licensed sequel was made for the PlayStation 2, called Rumble Racing.In a championship, the player(s) choose a championship to race, such as Metropolis, and then has three races to do in that championship (except the EA Cup, which has six). Depending on how well the player does in each race, they are rewarded with ten points for a win, eight for second, six for third, four for fourth, two for fifth, and one for sixth. A running total is kept, and final standing position is based on the total points earned in all three races. If the player finishes in first, they receive a trophy and unlock the legend race in that series.Championships can also be played in "Cyber team" mode where there are three teams with two players on each. The team members combine their points and the standings are based on both members, so it can be a good check of strength for an expert player. There is also "co-op" mode, where two human players are on a team.There is also a "Legend" mode, where a player can unlock a past NASCAR driver in a championship against the legend and four "regular' drivers. However, the player must finish first, and not just beat the legend. For example, if the player finishes in second, and the legend is third, the legend will not be unlocked.
