  1. The courses are short and usually sweet, and the controls are intuitive without being overly sensitive, paving the way for Wii newbies who might not be used to the console’s motion controls.
  2. And Monster 4x4 plays nicely as long as you don't expect too much challenge from Ubisoft's arcade-inspired ride. [Jan. 2007, p.102]

    Monster 4x4 isn't a particularly deep title, but you'd have to be a fool to go into thinking that it would be. It's probably best as a weekend rental to blast through with your friends.
  4. Suitably fast and fun but it gets samey and a bit dull in single-player. [Jan 2007, p.82]
  5. Not even the insubstantial freesteering wheel device makes it worth the purchase. [Jan 2007, p.80]
  6. Forget calling it 'the one that comes with the plastic wheel'; this is 'the one with the shoddy graphics and limited control.'[January 2007, p.57]

    While Monster 4X4 adds more entertainment around the included wheel peripheral and an overall stronger game than GT Pro Series, it still suffers from downgraded graphics and an overall lack of style when compared to its Xbox predecessor that released just a few months ago.
  8. After a jovial couple of hours in its company the scales will fall, and what had just seemed an unpretentious, unassumingly enjoyable videogame becomes a kind of existential nightmare of averageness that it's impossible to play for a minute longer. Monster 4x4: World Circuit is the definition of the lowest common denominator.
  9. Few people will accuse Monster 4x4 World Circuit of being a good game, but it's been dressed up enough that it at least crawls out of the sub-mediocre sewer.
  10. New driving controls add barely a smidgen of excitement to this Wii port of a thoroughly boring monster truck racer.
  11. 40
    Monster 4X4: World Circuit is a budget port of an Xbox title, we're getting it almost a year later and at full price. The game wasn't great originally and it still isn't.

    Monster 4X4: World Circuit has to be the most underrated racing game I have ever played. The graphics are very good and the controls are responsive. Score: 3/5. Full Review »

    The worst game I got at launch for the Wii. Only got it because I had to. The AI is poor, the graphics are poor, the track design ain't great. The only good thing I can think to say about the game is that it's not entirely terrible, just bad. A few of the multiplayer modes were OK and the game wasn't incredibly short. Completely meh.

    While it does allow customization, this game does get boring quickly. Controlling the game is easy and smooth, however, there should be more in the game to make it last longer Full Review »
