I WAS SURPRISED THAT I HAD THIS MUCH FUN WITH THIS GAME! GRAPHICS LOOKS NICE, CONTROLS ARE GREAT AND GAMEPLY IS FUN. A REAL SHOCK TO ME CONSIDERING ALL THE OTHER MONSTER TRUCK GAMES ON THE WII RANGE FROM BAD-HORRIBLE. WAY TO GO ACTIVISION!

Update Required To Play

Pros:
Nice graphics at 480. Easy to play, hard to master. Solid title. Some variety.

Cons:
Has a bit of an over-steer; feels like it takes a sec or two to register your turns. This was a problem for me because the races go pretty fast so when you are turning it's not instantaneous. Again this was my problem.

When I first borrowed this game I found that the controls were just horrible. It was unresponsive, riddled with both under-steer and over-steer. It was lagging as well. Then I was told to download the latest update. After that the controls were so much better, the difference was night and day. So, those of you who are having problems with unresponsive controls and lag download the latest update.

Though the game was solid and a lot of effort went into it, I just could not play for long because of the over-steer and taking a sec or two to register my turns that was still there after the update. It's the strangest thing because every other problem went away, except that.

I thanked my friend and happily returned the game.

So I thought this game would be decent but got nothing out of it. Ran a few races and did the stunt show and that was enough for me. I found the steering to be unresponsive and tough to get a hold of. Visually this game was OK. I did not try it in Multi player mode but after doing a few rounds solo I was all set with playing it anymore.
