Summary: It seems to be a good concept for playing with friends arcade style. The story mode though is difficult and the computer seems to be overly strengthened. I was not able to stay ingaged to finish story mode and have not played it in months. I do think it would be fun to play with friends.
Summary: My boys and I liked this game alot at first, but you had to do to much to get new cars and tracks as the game went on, and started to get boring doing the same thing over and over again to try to advance in the game.
Summary: As a Wii and PS3 owner I've purchased Mario Kart, Need for Speed: Nitro, Burnout Paradise and Gran Turismo so I like to think I've played a pretty wide range of race car games and of all of them Need for Speed: Nitro is the most fun. Now fun doesn't mean the others are bad. Far from it, I love all my racing games...well except for Mario Kart but we'll get to that in a minute. Gran Turismo is very serious.
Summary: Good family game. Works well work the wii wheel.I wish there was more activities. Great for all ages. there should be goals to reach to make it more exciting. It should be like amazing race, the first person to the finish line with all items win.
Summary: I have had many NFS titles over the years and this one it not typical IMO. It had a different feel to it than the rest, but that's really because it is really "arcadey". This is not a game you can really sit for hours and play. Just grab a Wii wheel and play a few races and come back later to it. Using the wheel is really a blast though with this game. The drifting takes a little getting used to but becomes easier the more you play.
Summary: They got rid of the world and now you just select one race, then select the next one, which I thought was less fun. The cop chases and nitro are different as well. The cops are now pretty much inconsequential and probably should have just been left out. The nitro is refilled by drifting around turns, a change that I liked. Overall I didn't find this one as much fun as nfs underground.
Summary: There's a definite dearth of racing action on the Wii and this little arcade racer is probably the best of a rather mixed bunch. With power ups and a driving style much closer to MarioKart than the Gran Turismos of this world, Nitro's pick up and play style is good knock-about fun thanks to the assisted driving option and motion controls which mean your Granny should be able to pick this one up and be drifting round corners and punching the nitro button in no time.
