    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 andNail'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

    Overall, Nail'd is a good title, let down by some poor development choices. The stunts aren't as spectacular as players would have hoped and the lack of variation in the race types means the title can get quite repetitive quickly. This is one title worthy trying before buying as it doesn't quite hit the nail on the head.

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

    Removing the harsh consequences for simple mistakes tears down a wall of inaccessibility that can alienate people from the genre and makes Nail'd the perfect point-of-entry for anyone interested in racing games in general, and the off-road subgenre specifically. I just wish the game had been polished enough that this innovation wouldn't have been such a major part of the experience.
