  • Summary: Players navigate rocket-propelled motorcycles in this arcade-style game. Players can choose to race against the clock or against worthy opponents in Nitrobike's exciting multiplayer game mode and unique online mode. [Ubisoft]

  1. Once you hit the game's rhythm it's all downhill. It's also one of the console's better looking games in terms of textures. [Mar 2008, p.60]
  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. Nitrobike works well when it's living up to its boost-inspired name, but most of the time, it's a slow, clumsy mess.
  6. Frustrating and painful. [Apr 2008, p.66]
  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.

    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 have the Wii veraion, but I bet the PS2 version is slightly better... Expand
