Sweet arcade-y goodness in the spirit of Jetmoto and SSX; absurd jumps, massive air time, and impossible tracks. Super fun.

Nail'd is an offroad racing game made by the Call of Juarez guys. To call it 'fast' is an understatement.

Good
- Fantastic sense of speed. REALLY fast.
- Very cheap.
- Decent amount of customization
- Impressive looking locales with multiple routes

Bad
- Single Player only on PC. Online component broken for some reason
- Horrible soundtrack
- AI isn't that great
- Lots of speed comes with a learning curve
- Little variety in event types

Overall
This is a game that you've probably seen cheap and got curious because of it. Check it out and hold on tight.
7.5/10

A nice little nostalgia trip,this game appears to be made by the same people as the original monster jam game.

(y'know the one. It was on Wii,DS,PS2 and PC. not path of destruction,urban assault,MTM2 or rigs of rods,it was just "Monster Jam")

Or at least these guys are pretty darn close because the handling is nearly identical,as is the soundtrack. Of course,they use newer songs of the same genre,but put on five horse john's missisipi king and omigosh it is nearly the same game.

Of course,you do not drive monster trucks rather ATV quads and Motor Cross bikes. I can't help but see the bikes as the motorcross before the Monster Jam show,and the ATV's as the Monster Jam trucks,but that's probably from the coincidentally similar gameplay styles.

However,the thing that sets this apart from that series is the customization. You can change colors of every part of your rides,making both the bike and ATV have different paintjobs. Then you can edit your driver. Make them male or female and apply one of 8 color schemes. I believe you unlock more as the game progresses.

You have to make a profile for some reason,which is odd since this isn't multiplayer. However,with the "remember my password" just a simple press of the log-in button can have you racing twoards victory in no time. Again,this was a welcome surprise as it sent me on another nostalgia trip as the (what a shocker),ORIGINAL MONSTER JAM GAME did this too!

Sorry for the constant comparison,but i'm seriously curious about all the similarities between this and the Monster Jam game.

Of course,the tracks also show some similarities,some welcome similarities at that! You can fly through the air like in the MJ game,and some of the obstacles are pretty similar.

Of course,unlike that game this time you can feel the power of these vehicles kicking up dirt and rocks,and it's remarkable! A+ on realism guys,awesome job!


Unfortunately,there is one or two nitpicks.

First off,the hitboxes on the tracks are questionable at best. I went flying under a curved,arch-shaped rock and it said i hit it. Then,i flew past a rock with a tire width between me and it and i still hit it.

I wouldn't mind it if they added a damage system. Not like a performance limiting one such as N'14,but one where you hit something a chunk of your vehicle flies off like in the old MJ game this is so similar to.

But one tiny impact and your driver and vehicle graphically burst as the screen fades to black,white and grey and eventually total darkness with some splatters here and there.

And the respawn takes a whopping 30 seconds of in-game time,meaning one crash can absolutely DEVASTATE your lap time. This isn't uncommon among racing games though,so even if it is a minor annoyance this game isn't at fault.

I also dislike you cannot mix colors and paint jobs. If you put on the "graffiti" one for example it makes the vehicle black and red. I turned the ATV yellow but when i applied the decal it switched the base color back to black! Every paint job i try does this. But that's just my customization freak mind,not a real problem in the game.


In the end i gotta give this game an excellent rating of 5 stars. all games have problems,sure,but this isn't ment to be cutting edge i don't think,i think this was meant as a nice little reminder of some of the great racers of the past,and even the LOADING screen gave me that impression.

Any racing game lover HAS to pick this up,it is a gem in any racing game collection!





By the way,for those curious,here is my scale for how i rate games in these reviews

5-gold (great game,no problems,very fun) <--------Nail'd falls in this rating right here.

4-silver (few problems,but easily overlooked for the gameplay)

3-bronze (quite a few problems,but not with all major parts. Game is aware of these problems and invents fun ways to fix them)

2-glitchy (majorly buggy,but has a few OK qualities like characters. The heart is in the right place,but could use some helpful updates)

1-terribly offensive,no saving it (All characters are offensive,the game CELEBRATES this,bad gameplay)

In Nail'd you will crash a lot, at least in the beginning, maybe even accompanied with some cursing, but you after learn the tracks, both will be reduced. But lets not jump ahead to the gameplay and continue with the options. There are a lot video option (texture quality, material quality, shadows, texture filtering and so on) to make the game run on slower machines. The game came out in 2010 and I can safely say it looks decent 4 years later. I was quite surprise from the audio option. You can manage every sound in the game – engine, music in game and in the menus, environment and so on. As a hole the audio is okay. The engines sound okay and the music is decent, fits really well with the game. Also you can adjust the brightness and rebind keys on the keyboard. And honestly, you need to, because by default they are weird. You can play with 360 controller, but controls are absolutely fine with the keyboard.
After you set up all the option, it's time to choose male or female character, some clothes for them and atv or dirt bike. For your driver customizations are limited just to clothes, but you can change parts on your vehicle. They are unlocked just by playing the game and they have advantages and disadvantages.
The gameplay is arcade. Here the gravity is not the master. What I mean is, you can do extremely ridiculous jumps. And the sense of speed is amazing. This maybe is one of the few games where I don't mind the motion blur. Even if I want to I can't turn it of. In the beginning, before I get used to the sense of speed, I often missed some turns. Interesting thing in the gameplay is the steering in the air and leaning to adjust your jump. In other words – you almost fly.
There are 4 types of races – single lap, 3 laps, time challenge and stunt race. The first 3 are self explanatory. The stunt race is a little bit different. They are not stunts in a traditional sense. In this mode points are given if you drive through fire gates and circles, make wheelie and few others. And of course, here also matter if you finish in first place and how much you were in front of the other players. That way you can win a race, even if you didn't make enough stunts. All of them give you boost. My favorite way of getting it is to fall down on unlimited boost or no collision.
To work everything I said about the gameplay, you need really good tracks. This is the case here. The design is great, even the environments are good – village, harbor, forest, canyon and others. Every track have different routs to take, but not all of them are shortcuts. Also in some tracks there are obstacles like falling rocks, but they are easily avoidable and stop being a surprise after a while.
One of the things I didn't like is the difficulty. I played on medium. The first half of the game I didn't have any problems with the AI. Then the difficulty jumps high for a few tracks. After them I was winning every race again without a problem. But biggest issue here is the repetition. It's kind get boring after a while, because there isn't enough variety. Since this is old game the online multiplayer is dead, but if you have some friends there is LAN, it's such rare thing to see these days.
I never played racing game with such sense of speed and adrenalin. Some compare it to MotorStorm. Even with the repetition, which comes at some point, this is still a solid game. If you have friends to play it gets even better.

I like this game for what it is; a fast, over the top, pure arcade racer. Beware, there's no realism to be found here! The game has a great sense of speed. You can make ridiculous high jumps! While racing, you can earn boost with performing tricks, like flying through a hoop, to go even faster. There's the ability to adjust your vehicle for better speed, acceleration, handling on the ground or in the air. Yes, you can steer your vehicle while flying through the air :) Basically, all the thing you would expect from a game like this. It looks pretty good too and it's also really cheap. You would expect a much higher price for a game of this quality. So, if you are interested in the genre, you should pick it up. Especially for this little money.

Let's make it easy and quick, like the game itself.

If you like Racing games, while don't really want any "realistic mechanics" This might be for you.
If you like ATVs, you should test it.
If you would rather not use an ATV, you can drive with a motocross instead.
You can build up the vehicle so it fits your style of racing, Really fast driving in expense of handling, Slower movement with higher handling, Mixture with high speed and handling. Oh, and you can boost in this game, so you can drive even faster.

But there flaws in the game that start stick out as you play, for example;
- The vehicles love exploding into bits
- The Online is shutdown (But you can play local with a friend)
- Like the other reviews say, the AI racers has a hard time catching up once you reach the 1st position

The game is cheap, so it might not hurt as much if it was bad if it costed, like, 15$-20$

I might have forgot something, but this might have helped, and it's your choice if you want to buy this or not.
