There’s nothing quite like the monster truck game to change up the general play style of the typical racer. Featuring events that are more in the vein of traditional racing (though while trying to keep the very inertially-affected massive trucks from oversteering more often than not) as well as ones obviously unique to this sort of vehicle one of the game’s greatest strengths is its general variety. Some may prefer the more typical arena-style events but for me the fun begins when you get outside with some room to operate working things like the checkpoint race or sillier fare like the challenge to maintain your multiplier while destroying most anything in sight. The hub overworld made finding events and getting started a little slower than it should have. I do appreciate the attempt to do things a bit differently but without much in the way of prompting to get you started I felt a bit lost until I poked around and understood what they were going for. By no means a perfect monster truck title but it’s certainly better than most on the system.
