Console Obsession
28 May 2010

Need for Speed Nitro Review

VideoGamer.com
24 March 2010
  • Excerpt: The front cover of Need for Speed: Nitro proudly claims that it's the first Need for Speed custom-built for the Wii. It sounds like something worth making some noise about, with Wii owners until this point having to suffer poor ports of a mixed bunch of NFS titles.

Need for Speed Nitro

Game Boyz
25 February 2010
  • Excerpt: I’ve always been a fan of the Need for Speed (NFS) series through both the bad (Pro Street) and the good (Undercover II, Most Wanted, etc.). I have been eager to see the results of EA’s announcement last year that they were taking steps to change how Need for Speed games were developed.

Need for Speed Nitro Review

UGO
22 January 2010
  • Excerpt: Being an arcade racer on a Nintendo console is a less-than-enviable situation, given that you're eventually going to be compared with the venerable Mario Kart Wii at some point. Fortunately, Need for Speed Nitro manages to hold its own against its heavyweight competitors.
  • Pros: you've ever empited a pocket full of quarters into an OutRun machine or been pulled over, high on Pixie Sticks.
  • Cons: you like your racing games how you like your Whistler paintings: realistic.

Review: Need for Speed Nitro (Nintendo Wii)

Gametactics
4 January 2010
  • Conclusion: Imperfect controls, less than cutting edge graphics, and brief single player mode hinder this game from achieving greatness. While not the best racer out there, still a fun experience for all age groups.

  • Conclusion: EA's Montreal studio has been very successful in creating a game that is fast, eye-catching, and approachable, but we're a bit concerned that the whole experience is too vanilla.
