  1. A lot like riding with a mechanical bull: sort of fun, sort of painful, with absolutely no sense of control. [Feb 2004, p.105]
  2. Despite a hokey story and marginally offensive characters, Monster 4X4 is a powerfully satisfying monster truck stunt game with 27 tracks. [Feb 2004, p.150]
  3. While it will grab your attention up front, it quickly gets repetitive to play due to nothing to do but race. In addition, the goofy story mode, generic rock sounds, and silly graphics won’t do much to keep you hanging in and watching either.
  4. Sure, there's a little car crushing, but not wanton crushing, and that's what I want in a monster truck game. [Feb 2004, p.110]
  5. Fails to excite on any level. It offers a decent amount of different tracks and courses, but nothing that you do on any of these courses is the least bit interesting.
  6. 38
    It also has a horrendous camera system, random trucks with no stats, terrible voice acting, badly designed courses, and characters that look so bad they're funny.
  7. One of the worst games I have ever played, yet it is also a wonderful piece of entertainment.
