Excerpt: Monster Truck based video games have had a long, and not so great history. Monster Truck Mayhem is an interesting mix. This Wii game is part racing game, and part monster truck smashing stuff. Quite a bit of the environments are destructible. Some levels are for racing, and others are challenges. The challenges are things like destroying so many objects in a certain time limit, or keeping opposing trucks out of a certain area.
Summary: While I enjoy video games and I enjoy monster trucks, I cannot find much in Monster Trucks Mayhem to recommend. It is a short, oddly conceived game, that has little to redeem it. If you have a Wii and $20, I am sure you can find a better way to have fun. Hell, for $10 you can find a better way to spend an hour or two. Without realistic physics, all that’s left is a boring, one-player, kart game. Pass.
Summary: Enormous tires, incredibly powerful engines, and the shocking excitement of monster truck racing has come exclusively to Wii! Put the beasts to the test as you tear through some of the meanest and most challenging tracks devised, destroying whatever lies in your path and smashing opponents off the road.
