Need for Speed: Nitro Release Date



Need for Speed Nitro is another installment in the well-known racing series. It was developed primarily for Nintendo consoles (Wii, DS) by the Montreal branch of EA Games. The team is known for titles such as Army of Two (PS3, Xbox 360) or Skate It (Wii).

The creators of Nitro put emphasis on joyful entertainment, giving up a certain degree of realistic reproduction of driving very fast cars. Driving model is therefore very arcade and thus this production will appeal to players of different skill levels.

The main goal of the game is gaining the eponymous nitro which is a short-term acceleration. We do this by performing spectacular stunts, especially by drifting. Using boost at the right time gives us an advantage, so be sure to use it wisely. It is also useful to lose a police chases in which we often participate.

In the game, you will find many licensed cars and the ability to modify any of them (both in appearance and performance). The whole has a specific and unique audiovisual layer.
