Need for Speed Nitro lays some great groundwork as a new series on Wii. This first outing isnt perfect, lacking some sort of first-person bumper or cockpit camera option, some spotty drift controls, and a generally thin list of locales, but it also swings for the fences during its first outing. The whole paint the city vibe is interesting, though downplayed overall, the car editor is hands-down amazing and the highlight of the package, and the sense of speed (complete with 60 frames per second) is insane. Nitro is a blast despite its faults, and brings some simply awesome concepts to the table. If youre a racing fan, this is the first NFS experience thats actually worth the cash on Wii. With that being said, theres so much more thats possible within the Nitro world, and hopefully EA puts in the wrench time needed to capitalize on its potential.
Own the World When youre in first place, the walls of the city become covered with your graphic style. Now everyone knows that youre the one leading the pack.
Pick Your Ride The style and spirit of the game are rooted in car culture, with 30 classic and modern licensed cars including muscles, exotics, tuners, and more.
Battle to the Finish Line Increase other racers heat levels to sick the cops on them, manage car damage to maintain maximum speed, and build up nitro with skilled driving to take the lead. The race is never over until you cross the finish line!
