Excerpt: Fans of extreme dirt racers like Pire or the MX vs ATV series can finally rub their hands. After a long void there’s finally again a new game that will make you want to take your tapped wheels out of the garage. Can this arcade make due for its slogan “Stronger, harder, faster!
Conclusion: For those first two hours alone, though, Nail’d was a very humourous and downright loopy experience. I can’t recommend it enough if you can understand how unwieldy controls can actually make a racing game better.
Excerpt: Nail’d is the latest ATV/MX game to hit store shelves, and in such a crowded genre, it definitely has to have something special to stand out and make it worth your time. In just a few years, it’s seen one of the generation’s best overall games in Pure, and some exceptional games like MX vs.
Summary: And that’s pretty much it. There’s not a lot more to Nail’d than its off-the-wall off-road racing. You can swap out parts for your machines, but it’s simply a choice between the engine that makes you accelerate faster or boost better. Likewise, there are some big jumps, but no tricks to speak of.
Excerpt: may not be the next great game to hit shelves, it does a great job at keeping the gamer entertained and happy -- all at the cheaper cost of $40 rather than the typical $60. But just because this title is fun does not mean it is a top-notch racing title.
Pros: Ridiculously fun., Pick up and play vibe., Boost feats.
Cons: No offline multiplayer., Lack of modes., Dumb AI.
Excerpt: , nail�d is an arcade ATV racer that definitely stresses ridiculous speeds and stunts over classic simulation style. It�s a game that rewards experimentation over conformity and the developer wants you to understand that immediately with their over-the-top presentation that made me want to slip on a...
Excerpt: Nail’d is a largely competent, if derivative off-road racer with the same kind of generic “extreme” attitude you’d find in a Danimals yogurt ad. Single player offers up a bare-bones tournament mode that has either races or stunt challenges in it.
Conclusion: There are also some multiplayer-only achievements, relating mostly to winning events and wrecking opponents a certain number of times. Progress towards achievements can be tracked in-game but as mentioned earlier, the DLC achievements don't work, even though they're listed in the game itself.
Conclusion: Fast, furious and brutally unforgiving at times, nail'd has enough going for it to warrant, at the very least, a weekend rental. With it's bonkers loony jumps and rollercoaster feel to the tracks, you'll get the most from it over a couple of days before it begins to grate.
