PSX Extreme
nail’d is a blast. It’s a mildly flawed blast but a blast nonetheless. It’s definitely recommended for just about anyone who wants a massive, fulfilling adrenaline rush. …finally. I can wholeheartedly recommend a title that isn’t expected to be huge and isn’t among the mammoth franchises that hit like a ton of bricks in the past few months. This is one hell of a stress reliever.
Nail'd hat klares Potential, Flatout 2 als LAN-Party-Geheimtipp den Rang abzulaufen. Einsame Pistenrambos haben dagegen weniger lang Freude am Spiel: Die simpel gestrickte Karriere bietet zwar einige Modi und 14 sehr abwechslungsreiche Strecken mit vielen verrückten Abkürzungen, aber deutlich zu wenige Veranstaltungen; auch Online sind leider nicht all zu viele Gegner unterwegs. Ein weiteres Problem ist das einfache Boost-System: Der Verzicht auf akrobatische Tricks erleichtert zwar den Einstieg, sorgt aber auch für einen akuten Mangel an Spieltiefe. In den Punkte-Herausforderungen lassen sich nicht einmal Kombos aneinanderketten wie in Pure oder Project Gotham Racing. Wer den Mangel an Tiefgang und Umfang verschmerzen kann, sollte aber unbedingt zugreifen, denn für zwischendurch ist nail'd der ideale Adrenalin-Kick!
Hat Pure nach zwei Jahren endlich seinen Meister gefunden? Das hängt davon ab, ob euch das Fehlen jeglicher Fahrphysik stört und ihr die extrem hohe Geschwindigkeit á la Burnout-Dauerboost mögt. Die zahlreichen Übertreibungen machen nail'd auf amüsante Art sympathisch und so originelle, durchdachte und detailverliebte Strecken gab es lange nicht mehr zu sehen. Auf Dauer nimmt der wahnwitzige Raser jedoch langsam, aber sicher an Faszination ab und dann wird eben doch lieber wieder Pure aus dem verstaubten Spieleregal gefischt.

Nail’d es la conducción arcade llevada al más puro extremo. Un juego, sobre todo divertido, que tras la sorpresa y la incredulidad de las primeras carreras, te engancha a correr y saltar a velocidades increíbles sin ninguna limitación física por delante. Se echa en falta una mayor potencia gráfica y alguna modalidad de juego diferente, pero en resumen, es un juego muy recomendado para los fans del genero y para los que se quieran echar unas carreritas "diferentes".

Este excitante racer de Techland apuesta claramente por la diversión, el arcade y la espectacularidad sin tapujos, dejando de lado el realismo y la simulación. Y el caso es que la fórmula da buen resultado, puesto que aunque no es el juego más completo de su género (ni tampoco lo pretende), se deja jugar y termina hasta enganchando. Todos aquellos que disfrutaran con juegos como Pure o ATV Reflex también lo harán con este título, sobre todo con las interesantes opciones multijugador que incluye.
For some, Nail’d simply being the fastest damned game on the market won’t be enough to sell them on picking up the controller and giving it a go. That’s understandable, as there are deeper and more polished experiences in both the simulation and arcade categories. But despite its lack of any real innovation or complexity, Nail’d succeeds in being one of the most approachable and entertaining racers of the year. Just temper your expectations accordingly, hit the gas and ignore the brakes, and you’ll have one hell of a ride.
Nail'd est une bonne distraction, facile à prendre en main et pourvoyeur de sensations de vitesse uniques sur le marché du jeu off-road. Grâce à un level design déjanté mais particulièrement soigné, le jeu de Techland se pare de tracés qui font à eux seuls son intérêt. En effet, une fois ceux-ci connus, le joueur tourne en rond, que ce soit parce que l'IA ne va pas suffisamment au charbon ou parce que le mode solo manque cruellement d'originalité. De plus, la bande-son n'est pas au niveau, ce qui impacte beaucoup plus qu'on ne pourrait le penser. Sous ses airs de Pure en mode "Plus, plus, plus", nail'd demeure tout de même un jeu de courses sympa, notamment en multijoueur.
Game Over Online
Nail’d isn’t an altogether bad game - when things are going as they should and you aren’t stuck restarting all the time, it can be a fun game to pass a half hour with at a time. However, it lacks the depth in either its gameplay or mode selection to offer much long-term fun. It’s the very definition of a game that is perfect for a rental because it isn’t worth buying by anyone because there’s only enough content here for anyone to enjoy it for a few days.
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. Loose physics and the inconsistent way your vehicle reacts to collisions with the environment make Nail'd more of a passive and often frustrating experience where you're just along for the ride. A weak boost system and speedy but strangely unconvincing visuals put an additional damper on the excitement. Falling hundreds of feet through the air is fun the first few times, but without a solid game to support them, the cheap thrills that Nail'd offers are quickly forgotten.
You can see some fun poking out here and there in Nail’d. The in-air physics work largely as advertised and add some excitement, but the game still feels surprisingly boring most of the time. Without the benefit of exploration for new routes or any meaningful challenge to vehicle handling though, Nail'd gets tedious fast and stays there.

Despite calling out the good, established titles in the ATV/MTX landscape, this game failed to "play up" to those standards, definitely didn't surpass them. The presentation elements are a big downside, but could be permissible if the gameplay was good. But there are so many flaws (questionable physics for the MotoX bike, lack of good "racing" elements, and horrid level design) that this game just isn't consistent. There are a few moments of fun to be had, but they are few and far between and do not constitute the $50 price tag.
