With only $3,000 and seven days, you'll be working overtime in the Monster Garage to get the job done in time and on budget. Based on the TV series on the Discovery Channel, you'll need to plan your monster machine carefully, order parts or create 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 its 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? Expand

  1. Monster Garage is a reality show - which is what is sorely missing in this game. You'll have more fun watching the actual show and pretending to string rows of popcorn on a thread.
  2. The Xbox version yields mixed results: It makes numerous improvements but it also takes away some of the freedom offered in the PC version.
  3. Poor gameplay, mediocre visuals and audio add up to something that never should have been brought to the Xbox, no matter what the price of the game.

    The developers have eliminated the personalities and blank-slate design decisions that make the show worth watching. Worse still, 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.
  5. This whole package would have been at home on the Commodore 64 20 years ago. [Feb 2005, p.91]
