    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!

    The makers of Excitebike 64 return to the motocross circuit with a disappointing wreck of a Wii game. [Feb 2008, p.89]
  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.

    It's a shame, because the Wi-Fi play is arguably the best part of Nitrobike. While the technical issues persist, the smaller field and lag-free experience benefits from the knowledge that your online competitors are putting up with the same glitches that you are.
