  • Summary: Monster 4x4 World Circuit lets players control the world's most powerful trucks and go head-to-head in pulse-pounding off-road competitions all over the world. Whether you're grinding through the desert of Egypt, crunching up snowy mountains in Russia, or smashing up trees in California to make the ride a little bumpier for the guy behind you, keep your eyes on the prize: The cash you earn on the circuit goes to customize your trucks and build up your ultimate Monster machine. Personalize your truck's appearance with sweet paint jobs and decals and soup up its performance by maxing out its speed, jumping and destruction capabilities. Win races, unleash spectacular stunts and jumps, and demolish everything in sight to win cash and upgrade your Monster truck to the ultimate stomping machine. Tear through 40 Monster events in the hairiest off-road circuits your tires have ever seen. Smoke the competition as you blaze through exciting new locations all over the world, such as Egypt, Moscow, Barcelona, San Francisco, South Dakota and more. Master your tricks in Quick Race mode as you taste all of the thrills, spills, twists and rolls of Monster Truck racing. Then turn up the heat in Single Race or Monster League Championship mode and leave your opponents choking. Demolish friends in four-player split-screen races or crush their hopes of domination in four intense new mini-games. Expand

  1. As with many simplistic racers, winning comes down to judicious use of power-ups and figuring out where the shortcuts are. [Jun 2006, p.81]
  2. The game is just far too slow paced to provide any exciting moments, and the controls are much too sluggish to be fun.
  3. Even when they have no competition, Ubisoft completely misses the mark on the monster truck racing genre with this run-of-the-mill and dull game.
  4. This was a game that I really expected more from, but in the end it was nothing more than a monster disappointment.
  5. It's sad, because a game that is made exclusively for the Xbox (the system commonly thought to be at the top of the current-gens) shouldn't be outdone by a title released for Gamecube and PS2 over 2 years ago.
  6. 42
    If there was a better sense of speed, more destructive elements and a deeper control system along with a multitude of other improvements, it might turn into something fun. Sure there's multiplayer, but it's just as boring and confusing as the solo play.
  7. Let me be honest here. I am currently watching an infomercial for Jack Lalame's juicer, which features his 80+ year old companion demonstrating that you can get juice from an unpeeled cantaloupe wedge. I am also feeling approximately the same level of excitement as when I played 4x4. This is just a boring game.
