    Fans of Excite Truck should check out Nitrobike.
  2. The thing that hurts Nitrobike the most is that it just doesn't bring much new content to the table in terms of Wii racing titles. In fact, aside from the well-done online mode, it's a near carbon-copy of Excite Truck.

    On the gameplay side, Nitrobike is good, but not great. As far as audio/visual/presentation goes, it lacks soul, and that is certainly a downer.
  4. Sure it’s got remote tilt steering, liberal boosts, and plenty of jumps, but the core control is so fundamentally sloppy it verges on unplayable.
  5. Despite all of its flaws, Nitrobike has one thing going for it: if you blowup 15 times during your career you can unlock crash test bowling. It’s not particularly fun and uses some whacked-out physics, but at least it will keep you from playing the main game.
  6. While the MSRP may not scream bargain title, the overall package certainly does.
  7. Too hard for casual gamers, too lacking for hardcore gamers, this is one title that will leave players looking elsewhere for a decent racing experience.

    Contrary to many reviews, this IS a good game. I usually agree with critics, but they have me baffled on this one. It controls a lot better Contrary to many reviews, this IS a good game. I usually agree with critics, but they have me baffled on this one. It controls a lot better than they say and there are plenty of visual effects to make the game look nice. It has plenty to offer in terms of depth, so overall it IS a good package! Expand

    The game sucks, it's one of the worst games ever made. Controls are awful, graphics look terrible, it's just and ultimately bad game. I haveThe game sucks, it's one of the worst games ever made. Controls are awful, graphics look terrible, it's just and ultimately bad game. I have the Wii veraion, but I bet the PS2 version is slightly better... Expand
