    Best used as an alternate to torture when countering annoying relatives or bothersome houseguests.
  2. The game suffers from a variety of problems that range from poor sound to bad level design, and in the end, they keep Monster Jam from being the least bit enjoyable.
  3. Sadly, Monster Jam fails miserably in all aspects and does not provide an entertaining title worthy of those fans that enjoy a good vehicle smash-and-bash.
  4. 44
    Fails to deliver in almost every category. Nicely rendered monster trucks and official licenses hardly mask the disastrous elements that ravenously eat away at this game's soul.
  5. 40
    It’s dull, looks bad, gets boring very quickly and is thoroughly overshadowed by its competition.
  6. Unless you really, really love monster trucks, the game's poor execution will prevent it from keeping your interest for too long.
  7. The graphics are somewhat outdated for being on the PlayStation 2 and unfortunately the gameplay lacks as well.
