An extreme off-road bike racing game.

Common Sense Media
14 October 2008
  • Summary: Parents need to know that this game is rated "Everyone 10+" primarily due to some female riders who are dressed provocatively. There is also some violence while wiping out on your nitro-powered bikes, with bodies flying. Kids can go online to race others in multiplayer modes, but Common Sense Media does not recommend this for children who are under age 12.

Nitrobike Review

VideoGamer.com
10 October 2008
  • Excerpt: We're of the opinion here at VideoGamer.com that the Wii's software library is dominated by shoddy games. We absolutely believe the console is capable of great things, but most developers just don't seem to want to release good games on it. Let's take Nitrobike as an example. The Ubisoft published extreme motorbike game from Excite Bike developers Left Field in theory should be good. But it's just not.

Nitrobike

The Gamers Temple
15 July 2008
  • Excerpt: I'll admit it; when Nitrobike for the Nintendo Wii was announced, I was excited. The only other decent racing title for the Wii, Excite Truck, had left a lot to be desired. Sure, Excite Truck's sense of speed was good and the control was fairly responsive, but I'd been hoping for a racing title that had more in common with PS3's Motorstorm than an SSX game; the Wii's first racing game was more about boosts, tricks and airborne antics than it was about striving for first...

  • Conclusion: While the MSRP may not scream bargain title, the overall package certainly does. The uninspired gameplay had potential but comes up short thanks to unforgiving track design, disappointing AI and a complete lack zeal for the genre. Lackluster graphics and poor audio do nothing to fill in the blanks either. There are moments where the game is actually entertaining but these highlights are few and far between.

  • Excerpt: Game: Nitrobike Genre: Motorcycle Racing Platform: Nintendo Wii Remember the Official Nintendo Seal of Quality? You know, the one they used to stick on games back in the day, when third-party titles that appeared on their systems actually had some standards to meet before being released? Yeah, they need to bring that back, before the market gets flooded with crap. Oops, too late.

Nitrobike Review

GameSpot
8 February 2008
  • Excerpt: The heart of any quality racing game lies in its vehicle control and track design. But these are often buried beneath layers of custom paint jobs, licensed soundtracks, and scenic backdrops. Nitrobike is that odd game where vehicle control and track design would seem to work well enough on their own, but they achieve disastrous results when forced together as a team.
  • Pros: Nitro boosts offer a nice sense of speed, Fairly extensive trick system, Online multiplayer is occasionally interesting, when you can find a match
  • Cons: Track design and driving mechanics don't mesh at all, Little incentive to master the steep difficulty, Cheesy music and grating visuals, Inconsistent, confusing collision physics
