A lesser-known MX/ATV racing game by the developers of Dying Light, Techland. Blood-curdling speeds and a variety of modes to play. Well optimized too!

I bought this game because it looked so much like Pure and i was not dissapointed. Only reason i would downvote this i because of the invicible walls, i sometimes like to go from other road to the other but i can't always trust this game because i will hit some annoying wall, but still really nice offroad game.

I'm bored today. so I'm going to do another review.
*ahem*
Sooooo...you DEFINITELY maybe want to get this game...if it's on sale for $1.

This game is
like FUEL on an acid trip, like Burnout if it were obsessed with catching air, and like my friend is with his 'your mom' jokes, just doesn't know WHEN TO STOP sometimes.

Nail'd is a fun game, and I really like it. but just for short bursts.

CONS:
- it's all about dat racing (there are a few challenges and modifiers throughout tournament mode, but nothing that changes your core objective, to be 1st place)
- 3 laps takes too long on some of the courses (for a filthy casual like me)
- rockin' music thinks it's better than it is (OR they just need more songs on rotation)
- online multiplayer doesn't function

PROS:
> catch EXTREME AIR
> have a lot of boost/nitro capacity
> customizable clothing, gear, equipment, vehicles
> you can kinda run other racers off the road so they crash into stuff & that's kinda awesome

So as you can tell, I'm kind of divided on this game. Personally, I wish there was more variety to the game, like with different modes (combat-based, mini-games, et cetera) or perhaps a free-roam mode (what can I say, I loved FUEL). But that said, the core game in Nail'd is still strong and fun for what it is.

TL;DR= If I had to pick: It is a NO for me at regular price. And a CAUTIOUS YES for me IF IT'S ON SALE (for 1 dollar or less). However, if you really like arcade-y, EXtreme-air type offroad RACING games that almost make you feel like you have super-powers, then it could be a (stronger) YES recommendation for you. :)

-----
edit [03/04/2016]: originally I said "too many races to advance to the next tournament (okay, I get it. it's a racing game, but do I really need to do 18 laps (9 on the same track) to even advance past the most AMATEUR LEAGUE?)"
I realize now tournament mode is actually relatively short. it's just 6 races, then a seperate cup to advance. (rinse, repeat, and add one more cup for the finale.)
I was thinking you had to do EVERY race in your bracket, as if there was a glitch in the game. it's hard to explain, but now I see the game works how I originally THOUGHT it was supposed to be.

I have noticed a few reviews stating that people could not get this to their desired resolution, or that it won't get out of windowed mode. First, you absolutely have to finish the training tutorial prior to having access to these options if I'm not mistaken.

Given that Windows 10 is sometimes a major letdown for older games... I was surprised at how well this one runs. The resolution goes as high as my monitor and GPU allow. The FPS on here is ridiculous at high resolutions.. Hitting over 300 FPS constantly. There isn't a V-Sync option (at least I didn't notice one)so those with 1080p monitors running at 60hz may see some screen tearing... Just an assumption, I don't know. This is a game that doesn't take itself too seriously. It's fast, unrealistic and fun as hell. Not many graphics options, but that is to be expected with a game from the early Xbox 360 era. I enjoiy it for what it is. If you like games where you can hop on a ATV or Motocross bike, go fast and make outrageous jumps.. this one is for you. I paid like $3 for it so i feel I got my money's worth.

Nail'd may be the best $1.24 I've ever spent on Steam.

This game plays like the classic PS2 game ATV Offroad Fury, with better graphics, bigger maps, and a turbo on your ATV.

Disclaimer: This is not real racing. You spend as much time in the air as you do on the ground. You can steer your vehicle in the air.

But hot damn, it's fun. It lacks 2-player support. The soundtrack isn't the best. But the game is a blast to play, and it *does* support my Xbox controller. Try the demo.

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 off. 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 someone or push them in to obstacles. This can happen to you too. Other interesting thing is the mutators. They are constant 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 recommend it.

A must have for your Adrenalin fuelled racing collection. Ridiculous jumps that will leave your stomach back at the top of the cliff. I never get sick of the feeling of flight whilst jumping off the mountains and ramps in this game. Great value fun for a couple of bucks.

★★★★☆


This is an extremely fun racer. The sense of speed is incredible. The only reason I didn't give it a 5 star rating is the lack of multiplayer. I did beat the entire first person mode, so if you enjoy a really challenging racer even in a single player campaign? Then you really should pick this one up. The graphics and sound are all great. The music is alright and keeps you going as fast as the game does. You will soar like you've never experienced, in the air nearly as much as on the ground. Learn to control it and you'll be rewarded with a rush like no other. It's a good purchase. Oh, and the partial controller support icon on the store page? I used an Xbox 360 compatable joystick just fine.

This game has great controls, (by that I mean the mechanism), although the community and devs are inactive, you can still enjoy this game by replaying the tournament or starting a quick race.

Got it in a bundle, and while I don't hate it, it is just a little too arcade than what I was looking for. I remember playing SSX a ski game thinking about how the physics were just too unrealistic. This reminds me of that.

It's an inexpensive game, and if you like arcade-style racing, you will probably get your money's worth. It just isn't my kind of game.

7.5/10 in a bundle
5/10 at full retail
add a point to account for my bias.

nail'd is one of those games designed to flick all the "HELL ♥♥♥♥ING YEAH!" switches in your brain. Normally when I play a racing game, I'm super serious. No, that doesn't mean I play Gran Turismo, Forza, Project Cars, or any other simulation. I'm a fan of arcade racers like Daytona USA, Outrun 2, Ridge Racer, and so on. All of my attention is focused on making those expertly crafted turns, weaving past my rivals, and powersliding. I don't care about realism, but games that emphasize your opponent's destruction (Burnout) don't do anything for me.

I have to admit, nail'd flicks my switches real good.

This is an ATV/MX racer, with some vehicle customization. Sim-fans are going to be shown the door immediately, since the first thing they'll notice are stats like "boost acceleration" and "mid-air steering". It's expected that at least 1/5 of the mileage you put into this game, will be spent in the air. Each track is composed of ramps, hills, slopes, cliffs, and other structures designed to get you high. The tracks are also loaded with obstacles such as trees, rocks, trucks, trains, and so on on.

Unlike the arcade-racers I usually play, collisions aren't an automatic restart in nail'd. You're always in the race, and you lose maybe 1/2 a second or so when you crash. However, keeping up with the pack (and winning) requires that you boost. Boost is acquired via certain gates, mid-air rings, perfect landings, wheelies, going fast, and even wrecking your rivals.

That last one actually doesn't come up very often in a race, which is why I love it. With Burnout and its ilk, the pacing starts to become effected when it seems like every few seconds I'm watching a cut-scene of a burning wreck. What was once awesome, gets really tiring. Knocking your rivals out in nail'd works because there aren't any cut-scenes. Everything moves so quickly that it takes you a second to realize "Did I just do that? Holy crap!" At one point I jumped off a ramp and actually landed on someone, destroying them instantly, I was so freaked out I crashed twice in a row. There are other moments like this, like the time I got so much air I actually rode on top of a hot-air balloon.

nail'd is an extreme racer sure, but it also has a touch of subtlety. It rewards players for doing the unexpected. The tracks are designed to accomodate rather than frustrate, giving racers room to look for shortcuts and opportunities to score more boost. This is likely one of those "you already own this" titles due to its appearance in bundles. Do yourself a favor and give it a go.

Also it might be a trick of perspective, but the racers in this game have phat behinds.
