  • 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

    If you're looking to get your race on without asphalt, then you need to get nail'd.

    Nail'd is a rollercoaster from the second you load the game. Absurd track designs, insane jumps, and crazy speed, combined with a great soundtrack, will keep you busy for hours at a time. Nail'd may not be even remotely realistic, but it sure is fun, despite minor flaws.

    nail'd is an over the top racegame that takes you to the most extreme off-road environments to race in. The gameplay is cool and really, really fast. Nail'd is a game you can buy if you like MotorStorm for example, the only sad part is that the game is a bit limited in the gameplay.

    Nail'd doesn't stand out among other off-road racing games. There are to many issues that will cause a lot of frustration. This game focusses on speed but still feels a little slow. Nail'd fails to achieve a certain quality so just wait and pick it up later for a bargain.

    The pity of all this is that there's so much about Nail'd that is innovative and refreshingly bonkers. If only all that potential had been harnessed into a more consistent and rewarding racing experience.

    A racing game that does not quite live up to the level of expectation in the genre at the moment.

    It is an interesting take on an off-road racer with some seriously breathtaking jumps, but lacked basically everywhere else.

    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

    Nail'd is EXTREME. I picked this up at a bargain bin and I was surprised with how much fun this game actually is. It's a typical arcade racer (similar to Motorstorm) where motorcycles and ATVs struggle in the most unusual races where physics NEVER COUNT. Be prepared to take almost nauseating dives or run pass balloons in the air - and (almost) never die. Also, it's fun to drive and the scenery, overall graphics, length and soundtrack is quite good. This is a hidden gem, folks. And many people will not even know this game exists... which is a shame. Expand
