  • Summary: nail’d is all about eschewing boring realism for over the top arcade fun. It’s a racer that challenges everything from player reflexes through to the rules of physics. Riding on ATVs and motocross bikes with powerful boost controls, players will race down near-vertical courses of incredible jumps, stunts and obstacles. The brutal challenge of the Yosemite National Park is but one of the places they’ll learn the meaning of verticality. Expand

    Even though there's almost a complete lack of strategy required to race, some wonky visuals on the console editions, and a conspicuous lack of split-screen play, I can still offer a pretty hearty recommendation for nail'd.

    The problem is that the more you play it the more you realise just how slight and limited it is as an experience. The tracks are pleasingly long, but once you've got them figured out they don't represent anything of a challenge.

    It's so fast and crazy, every fan of action racing games will love it. At least for a few hours, because then you've done everything and there's nothing left to motivate the player. Still great for a little fun in between.

    Listen to punk rock music, get the tunnel vision, jump, drift and hit your opponents! nail'd would be a perfect racing game, if there weren't the repeating tracks, the so called huge motor pool and the missing long-term motivation.

    Don't take nail'd too seriously, there is no depth in it. Just some unsophisticated, adrenaline-charged fun. [Feb 2011, p.98]

    The game is very easy, and won't take you very long to whiz through.

    In a strange way, I respect the intent behind a game like Nail'd, and I don't generally like tearing down the hard work of a smaller publisher. Unfortunately, shallow gameplay, a myriad of glitches, boring and repetitive objectives, a non-existent online community, average at best graphics all conspire to make Nail'd a game destined to be forgotten in the bargain bin of your local games store.

    Flawless GFX and original/well designed maps. Everything about this game is supercharged: 30 hours of gameplay and it's still surfing that new game buzz.

    The female rider also has a fantastic ass.

    Nail'd is a grungy off road racer built on a lightning fast 3D engine with an assortment of powerful ATV's & dirt-bikes that look like they could be straight from a post apocalyptic movie, that you can customise with new shock, brakes, gears and paintjob's etc. Graphically, there's plenty to applaud, with 14 courses that weave their way through mountains, deserts, even molten lava and offer an impressive range of racing conditions including off-road events, stunt races and time trials in both single and multiplayer modes. The courses also make up for their relatively short length by using the third dimension far more creatively than most. Jumping off ramps and plummeting 100 metres to the level below feels more like being on a rollercoaster than a conventional racetrack. The emphasis in Nail'd is most definitely on an arcade style of racing, with speed coming a close second. Be they quad bikes or motocross that youââ Expand

    Super fast and super crazy, but a little too arcade in execution. Nail'd at times almost feels like you're on rails with turning being a sort of quick-time event, but then eventually interrupted by an awkward crash. The upgrades to your bike also don't feel like they make a noticeable difference. Nail'd could have been saved with a comprehensive stunt system or some good old fashioned racer on racer violence. As it is, once you get over the initial high-speed rush there's not much left over. Expand

    decent visuals, lots of speed, lots of air, not much else. This game is completely lacking any real driving sensations, the screen is like looking through a fish eye lens, stunts are underwhelming, crashing happens uncontrollably, and unavoidably. Half way decent game for a while, if you are drunk hanging out with friends or something like that, but definitely not worth the 40 dollar price tag. Rent it, or not. Other race games out there that are much better. Older ATV games on the ps2 were a lot better than this. Plus this game lacks any open world stunt modes, which was always my favorite part of ATV games. Expand
