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. Nail'd isn't a bad arcade racer; in small doses its fun enough. It's worth a rental or a bargain bin purchase.
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. Throughout Nail’d I felt like it was missing, or delivering half-heartedly, on features its contemporaries already provide.
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. Otherwise, I suggest you stay away from Nail’d entirely, as its unintentional tendencies towards being completely off-the-wall will do nothing to appease your simulation sensibilities.
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 No Fear t-shirt, pound a Four Loko and call it a day. Yet there�s no distinctive character to the game, nothing that sets it apart from other arcade racers.
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. The former is self-explanatory, but the latter isn’t despite seeming like it is.
Excerpt: Nail`d review Game Over Online - http://www.game-over.com 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. ATV: Reflex leave their mark.
Excerpt: Nail'd is, in a word, extreme. In this off-road racing game, you share the sky with jumbo jets, leap over speeding trains, and ride along platforms suspended in the air by helicopters. These experiences do provide some adrenaline-drenched excitement, but Nail’d is not a white-knuckle racer where your every move is crucial.
Pros: Catching big air can be thrilling, Attractive environments
Cons: Strangely artificial sense of speed, Loose physics make racing less exciting, Uninvolving boost system, Inconsistent crash behavior, Uninformative upgrade system
Summary: Nail?d is destined to leap to the games under $20 shelf of your local store very fast. It?s not that it?s a bad game, it?s just that by now fans of this genre have played games so much better that it may be hard for them to go backwards. It?s hard for a small developer like Techland to compete with the big boys who make similar racing games, but this is a decent attempt, just nothing groundbreaking.
