4.0 out of 5 stars Need For Speed: Nitro, Getting overlooked? November 27, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Glad too see EA take the NFS series back into some arcade roots. Picked it up on sale and I gotta say I'm impressed. I'm in career mode and it seems pretty hefty with 6 locals and 8 missions per location for a total of around 50 challenges per career cup (Bronze Silver Gold). Missions consist of Circuit, Elimination, Time Attack, Speed Traps, and Drag. Includes co-op in career too. Over 30 cars to buy then a special edition of each car to unlock by completing challenges. I'm not sure if there is difficulty settings but its quite a challenge to get all the stars on some missions so far, there is auto assist for drifting that I have off. For controls you can use Motion, Wiimote + Nunchuck, Classic Controller, or even a Gamecube pad its good too have all 4 choices with 4p Multiplayer support. EA really went all out on car custumization with the ability to paint your own car free hand or with preset designs using the wiimote. Multiple parts are selectable and morphable for each part of your car(Hoods, rims, body kit, ect). So far its a great racer, may end up as one of my favorites of this gen up with Burnout Paradiseand Flatout: Ultimate Carnage. Art style is very unique with the track changing to your style as you go. Definatley refreshing after the bore frest that was NFS Shift

4.0 out of 5 stars A girl's point of view February 23, 2010
By Grrgoyl
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I'm actually a 40-year-old woman, been a tomboy all my life but still never gave racing games a second look. I saw this pimped on Ellen and on a whim added it to my wishlist for Christmas.

Now it's practically the only game I play! I've never played anything else in the franchise so I don't know how it compares, I just know this game is FUN. Wasn't at first, before I learned how to drift and rode the brake the entire time. Then when I realized you just have to throw caution to the winds (it's not like there are any real life consequences) and started winning races I developed a need for speed!

My favorite thing about it is you get to drive some pretty serious cars right from the beginning (occasionally). The first time I revved the engine of a Corvette, I finally understood why boys are so in love with cars. The more I play the more I understand how important car selection is for each event. My favorite is the Camaro, but smaller cars like the Beetle, though not as powerful and fast, are far easier to maneuver through the police road blocks, saving crucial seconds in your time. -- all it takes is one crash with a copper to ruin your whole race.

I agree with the other reviewer -- I received Mario Kart for Christmas as well, and playing that feels like a trip to the grocery store in comparison.

I took one star off because twice the game has frozen on me and I've had to reboot the entire console to get past it. Not a huge deal though. This is a great stress reliever and enormously addictive!

4.0 out of 5 stars Who cares that it is not a sim? December 3, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
This game is a blast to play, and will appeal to a much larger audience than an actual sim would, imo.

The visuals are colorful, sharp and inviting. The audio has all the engine noise you could want in a racing game. Up to 4 players can play on screen at the same time, and all four screens update at the same frantic rate.

If you need speed, you've got it. The cars really fly, and fortunately the physics are not that realistic, or the car would be very hard to control. But the speed will really get your adrenaline going.

The car shop is a total blast, enriching the artist in you, when the speed craving animal needs a break.

The only areas that could use some improvement are with the small narratives and lack of online play.

Otherwise, a fantastic title for children of any age.

5.0 out of 5 stars One of the best racing games ever. January 31, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
It was just about three (3) months ago when I saw need for speed shift on a friend of mine ps3, I loved the graphics but it was lacking in game play, to me there was no fun in this game. I had always wanted a need for speed for my wii console but I was not too sure of what need for speed to buy, any way I say a commercial on tv one day so I decided to take the chance and buy a copy of need for speed nitro. When I got the game and played it, I just could not believe what I was seeing; speed, action and fun put into one game. EA two (2) thumbs up, it's a great game; after playing this game it makes marrio cart wii looks as if the cart races are creaping, as I said and I will say it again great game. Keep it up EA and keep making more games like this.

4.0 out of 5 stars Fun for the kids November 30, 2009
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
The game is rated E +10 but my six year old son loves it! The rating is for some mild language but you can turn down the volume of the music or un-check the songs you don't want to hear in the options menu. Easy to play with the Wii Wheel.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Spectacular Addition to The NFS Series!! May 11, 2010
Platform for Display:Nintendo Wii|Verified Purchase
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
First off I have completed 100% of both the NDS and Wii versions of this game. I still play them a lot, and I want more! Need for Speed Nitro has got to be the freshest, most original car racing game I've ever played on the Wii. GET THIS GAME AND GET IT NEW! Here is why:

GRAPHICS & PRESENTATION
The menus and screens are finely designed and easy to navigate. There are 30 cars, fortunately they're all pretty awesome. Plenty different missions, all fun, good times there. The style of the cars and the graphics they're rendered in are nothing short of spectacular! The design of the cars is a very attractive, fresh and original one that goes perfectly with the fun world you'll race in. The levels are gorgeous and while, racing everything just looks amazing! Car customization is crazy good, hand paint your car how you like and choose from many awesome car body parts even tweaking those to your liking. The decals, tags and graffiti designs are cool and watching them cover the cities you race in is very gratifying.

SOUND
The music and sounds really pull you in! Some songs aren't too hot while most are pretty sweet. Options allow one to edit the play list which I think is awesome. Racing and engine sounds are great, even more so when using the nitro. Like many other elements the sounds also work great with everything else.

GAMEPLAY
For racing this really makes or breaks the game, fortunately it makes it! What's awesome is how they made the game compatible with all kinds of controllers including the GameCube controller. The controls and gameplay are smooth, easy to pick up and natural!
