Need for Speed: Nitro
need for something
Nintendo systems have always been more cartoon-ey than their sony/ms counterparts. the graphics, sounds, overall gameplay just seems to suffer in some in many cases (play nfs for gamecube, its awful). however, ea seems to have taken the typical Nintendo downfalls and put them to good use. its the utter lack of complication and realism that makes this game fun - also note "nascar unleashed" - its got an arcade feel and a general goofiness that makes it classic Nintendo gaming. think about it, the first 4 Mario games, add Donkey Kong to the list (yes, Mario existed before "Super Mario Bros."). Its essentially the same thing level by level, but you kept playing it because it entertained you. its the same concept. this game would've been top notch in 1996-ish when open world was a time trail on a set track and customization was changing the color of the car, its not a dissapointment, its a throwback to typical arcade racers, not a hardcore sim, lower the bar a little and enjoy the game.
Need For Speed Nitro is an extremely fun game and a good start to relaunching the franchise on the Wii. The good things about this game is the control setups. The best thing about the control setups here is they all work pretty good. You get Gamecube, Classic Controller, Wiimote and Nunchuck, Wiimote alone pointing at the screen and using a Wii wheel or similar setup. The sound really is awesome and the soundtrack is great. Basically this game sounds great on surround sound if that is your thing. The graphics and the art style chosen are excellent. The track variety is sorta lacking but there is enough here to race on to have fun. The customization of the cars is fun ! You can paint your cars with your Wiimote and it is a lot of fun to. You can also change the body parts like bumpers, side skirts, spoilers, hoods and rims.
Well, the people at the Need for Speed company really made this game look better then what it really was, I bought this game along with Need for Speed Shift for the 360, and I play this game more, but the only reason I do that is because they did something that I have been wanting since Most Wanted, and that is the Co-op mode in it, which makes it amazing, because then you don't have to watch your firends race and get farther, you can help him or her get farther and money, if you want more money just invite 3 of your friends over and then they will each get some money which all goes to your account, they have to use some of your cars so make sure you have alot of nice ones for them to drive, the handling sucks in the game, and the only way to turn a sharp corner is to drift it which is awesome, it has better graphics then undecover for the wii but the cars are underdeveloped, and I have not noticed any glitches with the game yet which makes me happy because that is what I was worried about the most.
need for wii
This game is great. It has great graphics for the wii, is fun to play the cars are awesome and the cop chases are great. I love the cop chases because there are always cop chases and the cops are smashing you and the traffic is cool because it is a good "weapon" to use against others. The drag races are fun because you have tho focus on three things, winning, when to shift, and to avoid traffic. over all this is a fun game and even though you race the same tracks they always change because you find new shortcuts and the cops get harder and the racers get harder to beat. some down sides are when you are drag racing it is hard to see the cars when you use nitro, It is hard to turn for some cars and you unlock cars that are the cars that you already have and you can't customize them and they are at the worst in their possible performance and you cant sell them, But other wise this game is awesome and you should get it.
if your a hardcor nfs buy hot pursuit instead.
its a decent game for nfs first wii game the graphics are pretty good for wii with the disporportanate cars and very steriotypical characters. the gameplay is good and bad. lets start with the bad. when you use nitros and get goin about 150 to 200 mph your camera does a close up of the butt of the car making it hard to see oncoming traffic. the drifting is terrible you see the car quickly chang from goin straight to moving side ways its not very smooth. but the gamemoves at a smooth 60 frams per second. another bad thing is the cops theres no way to get ride of them in a race you must either race with them nest to you and if they even slitly touch you car you get turned around and your car takes damge which keeps you from getting nitros its anoying. the races are only good when you get to class a or supercars and even when you do if you have a good car its pretty easy. i like being able to send the cops on other racers to make them lose and the costomization is amazing its fun to see your tages on buildings when your leading the race. and using the wii remote placement is easy and fun. but you cant buy a new engin and upgrade your cars this game was ment to be simple so if your a hard core nfs you wont like it much the only way to get a faster care is to buy a new one. there arnt many tracks maybe 3 per city and theres only 5 or 6 citys so the game gets quit repetative.
I have the game its fun to play it.Especilly if u like playing with friends or family members.The good thing about the game it has great graphics the cars might not look real but its still Ok to play it.The controls are simple steer left and right and hold 2 to accerlarate sometimes theres problems when your dirfting you got to be careful because if you steer to much you crash in to something.There are lots of cars to choose from but there aren't to much trucks in the game.Whenever your racing and your in first place watch out for the cops because when you have all five stars they really get pushy and you end up in last place.But nitros gets you back to where you were thats the fun part you go really fast.Definity a great game to play and enjoy.
I recently got this game for Christmas, and I was actually surprised by the outcome. Need for Speed: Nitro is an intense racing game which boasts 30 cars, tons of modes, multiplayer action, and some good music to go with it all. The first thing that stood out to me was the vehicle customization. You can apply various stickers or "tags" onto your car and even spray-paint some areas of your vehicle as well, using the Wii Remote. Although it would have been nice to have seen more cars, the hands-on customization really makes up for it. In the game, you get to race around in five different cities (Dubai, Singapore, Madrid, Cairo, Rio) and the game's courses really do a great job replicating these real-life cities. But, when it comes to numbers, Nitro's 10 courses just aren't enough to please. In general, the graphics, the sound and the interface score well. First off, the graphics leave me wanting more. The cool, cartoony visuals really appeal to me, and the glossy, shiny effects bring out the game a lot. The underground, urban music is just fun to listen to. The controls are also great. You can use multiple controllers to play, including the Classic controller and the Gamecube controller, but also the Wii Wheel for more realism. Drifting is pretty entertaining, and using nitro is too. Now, the challenge. Nitro is definately lacking in this category. The game is WAY too easy, and the Career Mode is short and shallow. But, by the time you complete the game, you do feel somewhat accomplished, and there is always multiplayer to keep you hooked. In conclusion, Nitro isn't for everyone. If you like a good, casual racing game without having high expectations, then this is for you.
I liked it
I lived it it so cool and it has some new cars and I like the zonda its so fast and its so cool guys just buy it and tell me how cool it is
Need 4 Speed Nitro is good
I have owned this game for a month now and I still love playing it. I am going to discuss the positives for this exclusive game for wii. In the game you can customize any car by painting it, putting diffent parts and choosing your signature graffiti. Also when to you drift in a track and use your nitro's. The tracks look great. I also like the feature where you can call the cops to try to occupy the driver infront of you. Now onto the negatives. First of all, the tracks are extremely limited. Another negative is the controls. The wii wheel is slow to respond, also just twisting the wii remote by itself has problems. Also in the tracks when you drift, sometimes you end up crashing way too often. Also the cops force you to crash into any object. A disapointment to this game is no online. EA Montreal, please make a sequel and put online
Its really cool!!
When a cop crashes on you you get damed alot. You start with 3 or 4 cars. The more stars you get the more things you unlock.
