This is by far the best Monster Jam game ever.

Graphics: Great attention to detail on the truck bodies and their chassis. The indoor/outdoor tracks and environment look fantastic. Colors are bright and crisp. There are few graphical hiccups, but nothing major. Over BEAUTIFUL looking game.

Sound: Nothing crazy. The only music track I noticed was "Bad to the Bone" that is used when Grave Digger freestyles. Rest of the music is alright. The commentary during racing events gets repetitive. The commentary for the event/track selection and tutorials is done well. Trucks do sound different depending on what truck you use, some trucks sound good others not so much.

Gameplay: FUN. The trucks suspension looks great as you climb, jump, land, crash. Each truck has it's own characteristics, so you'll enjoy trying out different trucks and what suits you best for the different events. The game is easy to pick up and and play..mastering freestyle is so much fun! I've yet to get tired of trying something new in freestyle and trying for a higher score. It is a shame no option to save your replay. The game offers plenty of replay value. You can create your own truck and design, it's a nice touch, but nothing crazy like Forza's paint program. No online play, hopefully that is something that be done in a future MJ game.

Presentation: Outstanding. This feels like the first Monster Jam game that was cared for and had the time taken to make it a great experience for it's fans. The previous games were quite honestly terrible. That is not the case with Path of Destruction. I choose to purchase the game and I am extremely satisfied. Rent or buy this game. Don't miss out on this Monster Jam game!!!

The first monster jam had some highs but alot of lows especially in the realism department. I mean who has ever seen a real monster truck do a barrel roll off a corkscrew ramp through a pirate ship(kinda cool though)? Well activision fixed that(well you can still do barrel rolls but more REALISTICALLY)and used a better physics engine and way better stadium events(including brackets for stadium racing). The Career mode is amazing, you can use an existing pro truck or create your own, then you pick a stadium and then an event. If i had to pick one negative thing, it would be the announcer Scott Douglass, i mean he's a great announcer live or on tv but in the game...VERY repetitive. The multiplayer is back and better than ever, with new 2 vs 2 team races, but as with the first game, no online...its not bad, but it would've been great to have. So if you're a fan of monster jam or if you're looking for a different type of racing game, this is the answer!
