Did we miss something on diversity?

Research shows a connection between kids' healthy self-esteem and positive portrayals in media. That's why we've added a new "Diverse Representations" section to our reviews that will be rolling out on an ongoing basis. You can help us help kids by suggesting a diversity update.

Not bad at all

This is a fun arcade game. It does include police chasing but nothing compared to other Need For Speed games. If your kid knows that street racing is illegal and wrong there are no concerns about this game.
age 10+
You think that illegal street racing and vandalism is alright for kids then you are mistaken Need for speed nitro really uses both those and the characters are stuck up and BRAG ALOT do not buy this game for kids under 10 or at least talk to your kid before starting to play Need For Speed Nitro i did with my kid and he understood it

This title has:

Too much consumerism
