With only $3,000 and seven days , you'll be workin' overtime in the Monster Garage to get the job done in time and on budget! Based on the hit Discovery Channel TV series, you will need to plan your monster machine carefully, order parts or create/construct the parts needed and start wrenching away, just like Jesse James and his monster team of experts. Turn a limo into a fire truck or an SUV into a rock crawler. When you have completed your mission - test it against it's real-world equivalent. Do you have the skills to take a run-of-the-mill street ride and turn it into an awesome miracle of modern engineering and ingenuity? [Activision Value] Expand

  1. If you like to tear done the rudimentary elements of a vehicle and then build it back up with new parts, all under a budget, you may find some diversion in this title. However, the time spent unscrewing bolts is disproportionately large compared to the time testing your creation.
  2. Gearheads may be temporarily amused, but for the rest of us, Monster Garage delivers about as much entertainment value as a fender-bender with a Hell's Angel. [July 2004, p.65]
  3. A big round of disappointment will be had by all that play Monster Garage. Perhaps Jesse and his crew should try their hands at developing a videogame. It can't be much worse than this.
  4. The lack of any strategy to the gameplay, a generally poor design, and an endless number of stability problems turn Monster Garage into a real monster, all right.

    The designers have simply reproduced challenges from the show virtually ensuring that anyone who might have the least interest in this game won't be surprised by any part of it. The only monster is this garage is a flagrant disregard for fun.
