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.
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.
Summary: Nitrobike allows players to navigate rocket-propelled dirt bikes in an exciting arcade-style game. They can choose to race against the clock or worthy opponents – Nitrobike features a multiplayer game mode as well as a unique online mode for up to six players.
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.
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?
Excerpt: Racing games haven’t exactly been the Wii’s forte. Excite Truck was a good time with some interesting controls, but as the plastic steering wheel add-ons piled up so did the duds. Enter Nitrobike, and exit Nitrobike as well.
