4.0 out of 5 stars Need For Speed: Nitro, Getting overlooked?, November 27, 2009
= Fun:4.0 out of 5 stars 
This review is from: Need for Speed: Nitro (Video Game)
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 know this comment is coming 3 years later, However; I was looking for
information that would clue me in to what controllers are compatible with
this game. (looking for wii games that support the GameCube controller)

You answered that in your review,
Thanx! - I've decided to purchase it
