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!

About the game


What's up?
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @crookedmind: higher framerates = more responsive controls. pitting someone with a 25-30 fps version of BF4 with someone with a 50-60 fps version of BF4 would be pretty unfair. (1 minute ago)

    Sdarts @Tiz: I only played the Campaign in the Gears games, so can't say anything about Multiplayer. But Campaign wise, I stand by my previous comments. (1 Hour ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz Judgement wasn't all bad though. Overrun is better than Horde and I wished if there was one thing the Coalition kept from Judgement, it was that. Instead of treating it like a horrid bastard child. (2 Hours ago)
  • Tiz
    Tiz @Sdarts: Judgement changed too much. Stim grenades that gave you double life in gun fights wat? Ink downed you in a second? Verticality in Gears maps? Jumping off rooftops? (2 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Tiz: Gears of War: Judgement was a refinement of the Gears 3 formula, and was a great game in its own right. (4 Hours ago)
  • Sdarts
    Sdarts @Phaethon360: I completely disagree with you. Gears 2 was shit, while Gears 3 was an excellent game. (4 Hours ago)

    GriftGFX I still think the iOS UX is inferior to both stock android and several android launchers. (6 Hours ago)
