Need for Speed: Nitro Wii Review

Console Obsession
28 May 2010
  • Excerpt: 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 realistic. Those who haven’t really taken to EA’s new mindset with the series on the more powerful of consoles, will most likely be delighted with this Wii version.

Need for Speed Nitro (Wii) Review

20 March 2010
  • Summary: 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 basic races, elimination style races, and races that focus strictly on drifting. The customization level is surprisingly deep, and you’ll probably spend a good amount of time tinkering with the painting to create your dream car.

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. Interestingly enough, EA has brought the series to the Wii and I was really fascinated to take a look at what they did make this game Wii centric.

Need for Speed NITRO

The Gamers Temple
24 February 2010
  • Excerpt: 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 game for all three platforms. PS3 and 360 games are fairly close in terms of graphical standards and both also have enough horses under the hood to run some intense processing for game play.

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.

Need for Speed Nitro (Wii) - Review

VGChartz
29 November 2009
  • Excerpt: Like many of its other key franchises that are blessed with the release of a new title annually, EA’s Need for Speed Nitro is exclusive to the Wii (and DS), which means it plays differently from its competitors and even predecessors. In an attempt to reach a broader audience, the latest Need for Speed to hit the Wii features a much more simplified approach to the Need for Speed formula that’s been seen for over a decade on countless different platforms, for better or for...
