Multiplayer Racing Game Lacks Individual Challenge

Monster 4x4: World Circuit is a fun multiplayer game. The Mini games are more fun than the actual racing, but you need at least one other live person to play them. The racing is okay, although I've never driven a Monster Truck so I assume the handling was the same. The tracks were monotonous after a while, even after reversing them. The season is 20 weeks longs in case you wanted to know. That's not a spoiler, it's just in case you were wondering when it would end. I had no problem at all beating every car in in every race of the Season, so when I finished I looked for a difficulty setting, but didn't find one. The graphics were kind of cool although the crowd goes by so fast you can't see them. Your screen displays fire when you get hit by a flaming barrel and water drops run down the screen when you hit the water to put the fire out. Overall a 5. Racing - okay, Multiplayer Mini games - great. Kind of like a Mario Party in a Monster Truck. Wish there were more than just four games. In fact, if they make the next one with all Mini games and no racing, I'd probably pick it up to have around for company. That's my review and I'm sticking to it.
