Need For Speed Nitro: Reviewed (Wii)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: It has to said that the Need For Speed franchise has had a bit of an overhaul this year to save the franchise. Three variations of the game were announced with the Need For Speed: Shift title released on the PS3 and 360 moving more towards the simulation arena and hit the mark pretty well.  See our review here.  The other was to try and create a more arcadey, traditional feel with the wii version, titled Need For Speed: Nitro.

Average street racer makes players flout driving laws.

Common Sense Media
1 March 2010
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this colorful, fast-paced racing game centers around illegal street racing. Racers willfully break the law, evade -- and sometimes fight back against -- police who try to stop them, destroy property, and run roadblocks. The developers include disclaimers before the game starts, which explain the dangers and illegality of street racing. They also remind players to wear safety belts in real life.

Need for Speed: Nitro Review

G4
3 November 2009
  • Summary: With the recently released Need for Speed: Shift, Electronic Arts appeared to have its beloved racing franchise back on the right track. Sadly, EA decided to release another Need for Speed game this year, Need for Speed: Nitro, and tarnish the critical and commercial success attained by Shift in one blistering-fast lap. The game definitely has some good ideas, but when it comes to the core experience, it's a pretty bumpy ride.
  • Pros: Tons of vehicle customization options, Hefty amount of events, Great sense of speed, Four-player co-op career
  • Cons: AI looks and acts ridiculous, Difficulty doesn't fit the tone of the game, Wiimote-only controls are unusable, Police-controlling power-up hurts more than helps

Need For Speed: Nitro [Wii] Review

WiiDS.co.uk
28 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Racing games don’t come in many guises. Need For Speed games tend to focus on the more underground aspects of the racing culture and have always offered gamers the opportunity to customise their “rides” to suit their own tastes. I have fond memories of playing Need For Speed: Underground on my Gamecube, many years ago.
  • Pros: Choice of steering method, Gets difficult towards silver/gold cup, Huge range of vehicles, Visuals/sound design
  • Cons: Same tracks being re-used causes it to become repetitive, Could do with more variation in events

Need for Speed Nitro (Wii) [NB Labs]

31 March 2010
  • Summary: Un juego que promete acción en cuatro ruedas pero no pasa la primera vuelta.
  • Pros: Buenas gráficas y fluidez, Compatibilidad con Control Clásico y Gamecube, Bastantes modos de juego, Varias licencias de automóviles reales
  • Cons: No tiene modo en línea, Altamente repetitivo, Sólo dos tipos de Power-Ups, y no muy bien esparcidos en las pistas., Algunas cosas levemente molestas a la hora de driftear y evadir policías, Se extraña la posibilidad de - por lo menos - recorrer la ciudad para variar mejor las pistas.

  • Excerpt: Les courses de voitures sont outrageusement dominées par Mario Kart sur Wii depuis un bon moment, et aucun soft de poids n'est venu taquiner sa suprématie depuis sa sortie. EA Montréal a donc décidé de remédier à cet état de fait en proposant un épisode de Need for Speed exclusivement développé pour la console de salon de Nintendo. C'est ce jeu qui est en test aujourd'hui, il s'agit de Need for Speed Nitro.

Need for Speed : Nitro

30 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Juste la moyenne pour ce Need For Speed sur DS, ses quelques qualités viennent rattraper ses innombrables sources de déception, pour un jeu qui devait être une des pièces de la renaissance de la série, nous devons avouer que la déception est de mise, espérons que la prochaine sera la bonne cette fois !
  • Pros: La durée de vie, Un gameplay rapide à prendre en main...
  • Cons: ... mais sans grande innovation, Les graphismes bas de gamme
