Our videos of Nitronic Rush

Every year, there are always games which disappoint us, making us regret spending some of our precious savings. Thankfully, there are also free games that make up for all the frustration felt in such circumstances. Nitronic Rush is one of these titles. Created by some students at DigiPen Technology, this subtle mix between Tron, Pod, Rollcage and even Automan - a TV show from the 80's long forgotten - is fantastic in every department. They have achieved such a great job that their game would clearly deserve to be sold, so we advise you to visit their website right now and give it a go. You won't regret it.

Thanks for letting us know, Driftwood. Nitronic Rush plays and looks great, and the music is nice! I would pay for this game if it was on XBLA/PSN. I love these futuristic arcade racers. And Rollcage was THE BOMB on PSX!

  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MikeManiac61: Hold on, no memorable games? Halo 3, Reach and 4?,Gears 1-3? Forza Motorsport and Horizon? Lost odyssey? Condemned? Crackdown? Alan Wake? Come on now :) (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth the first game reminds me a lot of the souls series. doing dungeons/bosses in different orders, cryptic messages and hard to find areas. (1 Hour ago)
  • Melmoth
    Melmoth Legend of Zelda done, now on to Link to the Past. (1 Hour ago)
  • MikeManiac61
    MikeManiac61 @GriftGFX: That's true. I can't remember any memorable IP's from the 360 days lol. (1 Hour ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX The success of the 360 had *a lot* to do with it being the best multiplatform console. There may be a diminishing returns thing there though... we'll see. (2 Hours ago)
  • scoobs0688
    scoobs0688 Scorpio will be nice and all, but if you don't have the software then ultimately nobody will care outside the hardcore who are buying it regardless. (2 Hours ago)
