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

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!

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.

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.

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.

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. The volume of brand name cars are almost overwhelming and the level of involvement with the vehicles the game asks of you can be daunting.

Burnout Paradise is set in this amazing living, breathing city but none of the cars are actual brands and you can't do anything to them so that gets kind of boring after a while. There are no closed course races so everything happens on public streets and sometime dodging oncoming traffic isn't the kind of racing you're interested in that day.

Mario Kart is just terrible in my opinion. I don't mind losing a race to a better driver but I hate losing a race to some jerk who's been in 5th place the entire race and only beats me because, by pure luck, he picks up a turtle shell 500 yards from the finish line and throws it at me.

Need for Speed: Nitro is fun. It has a nice selection of real world cars. You can add body parts to them and paint in just about anyway imaginable so you really feel like you're driving YOUR car. The Wii remote responds perfectly for driving (get a Wii wheel BTW) but not so much for painting. The only cars on the track are the racers and the occasional police. The tracks are bright and nicely detailed and the police while a huge nuisance early on quickly get left in the dust as you get better and faster cars.
