Had Nitro been given online capabilities the score would have been higher just on merit. But the lack of it, coupled with the "meh" presentation and production values makes this Need for Speed a hot rod with nothing impressive under the hood.
SPC writes, "Sunday is this week's kickoff of SuperPhillip Central content, and with it we see a retro review. The announcement of Mario Kart 8 Deluxe to the Nintendo Switch saw the site developing a vested interest in arcade racing games. Last week, we took a look at Pac-Man World Rally, a kart racer. Now, we look at a different kind of racer with this retro review of the Wii version of Need for Speed: Nitro."
Currently it's the only semi decent F1 racer on the market, and for those that need to fulfill that sensation of rocketing though Monte Carlo, it's a good surrogate until a 2010 game comes out.
