  • 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.

  • 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. Nitrobike goes through the motions of being an achievement-based, progressive racer, where you enter a smattering of competitions to unlock more tracks and bikes.

  • Excerpt: Motorbikes with rockets on them! How can Nitrobike be anything other than, as the box claims, "motocross at the speed of fun"? How can this Excite Truck clone from the developers of Excitebike 64 be less than racing perfection?

Nitrobike (Wii)

Gamesurf

  • Conclusion: Nitrobike ti permette di sterzare con la moto da cross inclinando il Mote come fosse un manubrio. Si è concesso volentieri alla novità del pad Nintendo (sempre che di novità si possa ancora parlare, passato ormai più di un anno dall'uscita dello Wii), questo pregio gli va riconosciuto.

Nitrobike - Test

Eurogamer
22 February 2008
  • Summary: Wer sich vom "Ach du Schande"-Eindruck der ersten Minuten nicht abschrecken lässt, ist wahrlich hart im Nehmen. Die Grafik stammt aus der Spielesteinzeit, es gibt einige Mängel und die Steuerung ist anfangs etwas gewöhnungsbedürftig. Doch wenn man Nitrobike ein wenig Zeit gibt und sich reinfuchst, offenbart es sogar kleine Stärken: Die ewige Suche nach DER einen Bestzeit, der optimalen Runde oder einfach nur einen Sieg nach dem anderen einzuheimsen und eine 100...

  • Conclusion: Mit Nitrobike erscheint mal wieder ein Titel, den niemand braucht. Weder die innovative Steuerung, noch das eigentliche Spielprinzip wurden zufriedenstellend umgesetzt. Grafisch macht der Titel genauso wenig her, wie ein überarbeitetes GameCube-Spiel, hat aber viel weniger Charme. Und auch der Sound lässt zu wünschen übrig. Immerhin kann der Titel kurzzeitig mit Freunden Spaß garantieren.
  • Pros: nettes Geschwindgkeitsgefühl, anfangs recht atmosphärisch, innovatív, 20 Kurse, Karrieremodus, zu viert im Splittscreen daddeln, zu sechst online spielbar
  • Cons: veraltete Grafik, unrealistisch, auf Dauer nervig, gewöhnungsbedürftig, unfertig, KI, nichts Neues, kein Tutorial, viele Frustmomente, nur kurzzeitig motivierend
