When all is said and done, the Nitro Pack's new missions, technical enhancements and observance of I-76's inimitable style make it a worthwhile retrofitting. At the same time, the add-on also suggests many of the game's basic flaws are too serious to be remedied by mere tune-ups; the solo game in particular still isn't as fun as it seems like it should be. Perhaps the aging engine lacks the technical proficiency to reproduce the gritty cool of the cutscenes and voice-acting or the design is simply too ambitious to be depicted adequately by anything but non-interactive FMV. Whatever the reason, I-76 remains a greater spectacle than game, though not, at least with the Nitro Pack, for lack of trying.
