My 6 year old LOVES this game!!!!!

I have to admit that I enjoy playing it too! It's fun to smash up stuff with the monster trucks and exciting to "open" another truck when you get enough points.

Definitely worth renting...we ended up buying it!

Mini games are fun, but not much else.

The game play is limited to racing and a few mini games. The mini games are fun for a while. You can unlock more tracks and trucks after winning races, but when racing, the trucks are very hard to handle at high speeds. I end up crashing into things more than racing. One wheel usually ends up breaking off which makes the handling almost useless.

Normally I like destructive games where you get to drive around freely destroying everything in your path. However, this game is a little simple and doesn't provide enough challenge or real-life effects to make it interesting enough to keep.

The trucks you start off with and the additional trucks seem to have no advantage to them other than their body paint.

I'm sure gamers with better driving skills will be able to progress further, but for the average player, it is a daunting task.

The graphics are OK. The sound effects get repeated quite often which after a while gets annoying.

All-in-all, it's a fun game to rent, but I wouldn't want to keep it.

Bad

Not that good

Not that good at all. The steering is so sensitive yet lacks traction it is impossible to drive straight. The camera view bounces around so much you don't know if your in forward or reverse half the time. The graphics look like GBA.

My two-year-old son enjoyed it, but he also enjoys picking his nose :|'
