Because of this, I’ve admired those games and how they expanded the lexicon of racing titles. Nail’d is not one of those games. Nail’d is not trying to redefine the traditional racing experience, but rather fulfill its original promise: If you go really fast and make it to the finish line first, victory is yours. However, that doesn’t mean that Nail’d is any less exciting than those other games. In fact, Nail’d attempts to capture what is fundamental about the genre in its own way, leaving the player with a powerfully distilled experience."
