My youngest nephew is a huge Monster Truck fan. He just loves going to the live shows and seeing all the trucks and disaster. His parents have even taken him all around the country to enjoy the championship shows and for him to meet his favorite drivers. For the first time, ever fans of Monster Truck can experience some of the excitement in their own home.
I have to admit that I wasn’t a huge fan of racing games at all. I have seen one of my nephews play racing games before and they looked exciting but I could never get my hand on the steering at all. When we downloaded the game the first place I headed was in the practice area to learn more about steering and getting a handle on things before heading into an event. I had a hard time with getting the hang of it but that’s the great part about practicing you can take all the time you need.
One thing I liked about the game is that it gives you the opportunity to switch your point-of-view when driving. You can drive from the driver’s seat, from an angle above the truck and a behind the truck point-of-view. That’s great because from each angle you see the game in a different way. I liked looking above but I’m sure most fans of the game would rather take the driver’s seat and pretend they are driving their own Monster Truck.
After playing around a bit I handed the controller over to my kids and they played for hours. I was a bit disappointed that there wasn’t a multiplayer option because my kids love playing with each other. With this game, they each have to take turns but they do get the option to customize their vehicles to their liking, which works perfectly for them.
You can see from the amazing gameplay on the trailer video, it’s a very fun game. There are so many things for you to explore and do before you even get into the events on the game. When we got started there was just one event. We didn’t place well but we all continued playing and exploring more about the game. I’m guessing depending on how you master the events more unlocked.
Fans of Monster Truck is going to want to add this game to their collection. It was lots of fun for us even with our limited experience playing racing games. I’m sure it will be easy for experienced gamers who love racing to master and even if you’re a newbie like our family, you’ll be earning lots of cash in the game in no time at all. There are also options to buy add-on packs to add even more fun and custom gameplay on to the game.
When you’re making up your holiday gift list this year, if you have a Monster Truck fan on your shopping list, be sure to grab them this game and wrap it up for under the tree. It’s sure to provide them with hours of fun, and it’s a great way to bring home the experience of Monster Trucks in a whole new way.
