Excerpt: As a reviewer, I'm really supposed to remain objective. But, I'll make a confession. After reviewing what I found to be a pretty pointless and mildly fun game on GBA, I was a little apprehensive to see the same game popping up for PS2. Luckily, Monster Jam for PS2 is very much a horse of a different color, compared to its little brother on GBA. Which isn't to say you won't have some complaints. But, graphics probably won't be one of the things you complain about.
Excerpt: Monster Jam: Maximum Destruction is a vehicular combat game featuring the popular jacked-up, car-crushing monster trucks. If you are a fan of the 'sport', then you'll appreciate that Monster Jam has licensed over 30 famous trucks including Grave Digger, Bulldozer, and Predator. The trucks themselves look great, with nice textures and lighting effects.
Excerpt: Monster Jam: Maximum Destruction is one of those games that shows a lot of promise, but ultimately falls flat due to several huge flaws that simply cannot be overlooked. You see, in concept the game sounds great: take the intense auto-combat action of Twisted Metal: Black but put monster trucks in place of all the cars. Now that doesn't sound so bad, does it? Well, unfortunately the game fails in execution.
