  1. Manages to capture the full-realism of 3D driving on a handheld device without having to make the graphics small and jagged.
  2. To be perfectly honest, this is one of the best looking Game Boy Advance games on the market...[and] one of the best arcade style racers on the Game Boy Advance.
  3. While extremely short and lacking multiplayer, Monster Truck Madness is gorgeous and still provides a fun racing experience.
  4. Pocket Games
    Fans of the bigger versions of Monster Truck Madness will find almost everything they need in this impressive handheld version. [Fall 2003, p.48]
  5. The real problem with Monster Truck Madness is that it's strictly a single-player experience.
  6. Visuals are definitely the strength of the game. Controls and audio would fight for second place. Variety, unfortunately, is last.
  7. 75
    A quality racing title. The lack of statistics and multiplayer mode is a shame, absolutely, but the design's core is important as well, and the racing action is definitely well produced on the limited Game Boy Advance hardware.
  8. Nintendo Power
    The excellent 3-D driving engine for THQ's Monster Truck Madness offers a smooth frame rate and a genuine feeling of speed. [Sept 2003, p.138]
  9. For quick, pick me up & play game, Monster Truck Madness will not disappoint. The 3D graphics are impressive and the racing is smooth & polished. However those gamers looking for a more in-depth racing experience will be disappointed.
  10. Game Informer
    The vehicles don't act how they would in real life and it's so short on thrills that it needs to sit atop a stack of phone books to see over the dashboard. [Oct 2003, p.145]
