Need for Speed: Nitro Wii Review

 

EA have made some interesting steps with the Need for Speed franchise on the 360 and the PS3. The recently released SHIFT took the series from the streets and placed it into proper racing circuits, whilst also attempting to make the handling more...

As the first Need for Speed game specifically built for the Wii, Nitro is a most enjoyable beginning to what is most likely a new series for Nintendo's current console. Being an arcade racer, this is aimed at those who like to have plenty of fun...

Need for Speed: Nitro

 

Need for Speed: Nitro gets off to a fast start, but lacks enough variety to make it into the winner's circle.

Looks good ; Loads of customization options ; Rewarding progress system

Only one camera view ; Not enough variety

Need for Speed Nitro (Wii) Review

 

“You got the Need for Speed?” “Oh I've got some needs baby…”

Need for Speed Nitro is a fun arcade racer for the Wii. While there are only a handful of maps, each map is well designed with shortcuts and lots of little touches that make the course feel alive. The standard racing types are also present, with...

Need for Speed Nitro

 

Cav takes a spin in the Need for Speed franchise specifically developed for the Wii ... but is this really the right platform for it?

Good Controller selection - Lots of unlocks - Creativity encouraged with vehicle modification and painting

Boring and repetative - Slight learning curve depending on your controller selection

Some kid will like it..... not that a G Rating instantly means this is for kids. Rent it, play it, take it back. I'm sure Santa brought you better games for Christmas, if he brought you this and it's still in it's plastic trade that bad boy in.

Need for Speed NITRO

 

A pared down, stylised version of previous NFS titles with a few new gimmicks. Best suited to younger gamers.

A good selection of vehicles and options for customisation; multiplayer is a lot of fun

No online options; single player Career Mode is too short; depending on which controller option you choose, some of the controls are dodgy

Better than average.

Need for Speed: Nitro

 

Painting (and driving) by numbers...

Fast, smooth visuals ; Nice sense of speed ; Can do a custom paint job with the Wii remote

Basic racing with squished cars ; Massively simplified handling ; No in-car view

As well as the normal circuit races there are drag races and a mode where you have to drive through checkpoints as quickly as possible. The game supports every type of control method you could think of, including one where you point at the screen and...

Need for Speed: Nitro - 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

 

"For the casual crowd, Need for Speed NITRO is undoubtedly a fun alternative with just enough production value to keep it from seeming overly stale."
