Need For Speed: Nitro


There have been many Need For Speed games on the Wii; from Carbon to ProStreet and even Undercover. However, when it actually comes down to shear enjoyment, none of those installments in the franchise are as good as Need For Speed: Nitro. This game...

Need For Speed: Nitro


The stylized graphics and fun gameplay help make this Wii game a quality title.

Numerous control options ; Great framerate ; Lots of car customization ; Everything is co-op

Arcade mode has weird restrictions ; Not a lot of variety

No crashes, no deal.

Need for Speed Nitro for the Wii


Need for Speed Nitro is the newest edition from the popular racing franchise for the Wii console. Although the series has garnered plenty of success in the past, this time around with the Nitro edition, Electronic Arts changed things up a bit to gear...

Each car has its own specific ratings and strengths, broken down into speed, acceleration, strength, handling, and drifting. While they do resemble the real thing, I wouldn?t put the aesthetic replication on the level of a Gran Turismo, as many of the...

Need for Speed NITRO


Ever popular, the Need for Speed franchise has shown up on just about any console, handheld, or mobile device known to man. Known more traditionally for intense arcade action, Need for Speed: Nitro follows suit. The game helps to fill gap in the Wii's...

For starters, NFS: Nitro is very accessible. You can pop the game in and within a few short moments you're going to be very comfortable with the controls and how they interface with the gameplay. You're given a wide range of control options, so...

The biggest and most disappointing problem with Need for Speed: Nitro is the mind boggling fact that the game only employs a single camera angle. At no point in the game is the player given the option to change their view. Anybody with any experience...

As far as arcade racers on the Wii go, Need for Speed: Nitro isn't a bad experience. In fact, the game does many things better than its admittedly slim competition, but the strange decision to include only one camera angle and the repetitive nature of...

Need for Speed NITRO


The Wii occupies an interesting niche in the hierarchy of video game consoles. On one hand, it is probably the most accessible console ever; just about anyone can pick up a controller and learn to play one of the plethora of shallow and/or simple games...

Nitro is age appropriate for the pre-teen Wii player, but will not hold the attention of the older folks in the house. The graphics are fun and attractive but won't be mistaken for the nearly photo realistic graphics available on the higher-end consoles.

Need for Speed Nitro Review


Nitro provides a fun, if somewhat short, racing experience.

EA's latest Need For Speed effort on Wii would've benefited from online play and several more tracks and cars. As it stands, however, Nitro is an enthralling racing game, with plenty of rubber-burning action for you and your friends. Put the pedal to...

Need for Speed Nitro - Nintendo Wii


I Feel The Need, The Need To Play Another Game.

I like that more and more Wii games are going for that stylized look. It works well for the system

Need for Speed: Nitro - Wii Reviews - The Armchair Empire


The Need for Speed series has had its ups and downs over the years and recently I'm happy to report that it seems to be on an upswing. This version, specifically designed for the Wii has given the series a much needed kickstart on the Wii

Built for the Wii and feels like it; Lots of control options and a great sense of speed; Can be frustrating for the first few races, especially until you find controls that work for you; Arcade mode curiously leaves out some options for no apparent reason

Need for Speed NITRO - Review


The Wii is a unique console to be sure. Besides the one-of-a-kind controller it is also, to be blunt, underpowered compared to the other current generation consoles in the PS3 and Xbox 360. This can be a serious issue when developers are creating a...

Need for Speed: Nitro is an arcade style racer that, while not too terribly deep, is worth a spin around the block.

Need for Speed Nitro- Wii


When you look at the glut of racing games available, it is often hard to distinguish one from the next, so if you have something that stands out you need to leverage that. For that reason, I’m happy to see cop chases return to a Need for Speed game,...
