Monster Truck Championship
Top Critic Average
The graphics are rough and it's lean on content, but Monster Truck Championship's simulation-style approach works well.
Monster Truck Championship bravely tries something new and very nearly succeeds. The movement of the trucks is difficult at first, yet ultimately rewarding, but what's built around the driving is sparse and unimaginative. I could see this developing into a fun sequel that rewards patience, but this first effort is a little rough around the edges.
Monster Truck Championship is a faithful simulation that offers a satisfying learning curve and a great sense of accomplishment. The competitions can become harder, but you are given plenty of customisation options to improve your truck throughout.
Monster Truck Championship finally does justice to the crazy world of monster trucks with a good title, genuine and fun, absolutely standard in the structure but made unique by a control system and physics designed ad hoc, not always perfect but tasty for racing fans looking for different sensations.

A surprisingly enjoyable off-road licence which never impresses visually, but manages to combine good handling and a wealth of tracks and arenas to create the right chemistry for a shallow but very playable dip into an ironically droll and niche motorsport.
Monster Truck Championship is the best monster truck game to be released. The lackluster presentation and technical hiccups hold it from being great. The driving and stunt controls are solid, even if they take some practice. Short draw distance causes frequent pop-ups during races. There's no music during races, and the crowd is completely silent most of the time. It doesn't take that long to make your way through all 30 of the career events, and in the process, earn millions of dollars. Some appearance parts can cost a pretty penny, so you'll need to replay events to unlock everything.
Monster Truck Championship isn't the worst or the best racing game I've ever played. The frame rate and visuals are good, and the overall presentation and setup are fine. Regardless, whether you are a fan of monster trucks or racing games in general, I would say that it isn't worth the price of $39.99. I can't see myself going back to it since the controls are dicey and that the game itself is average and forgettable.
If you are looking for a fun racing style game with some team management to it, then really give this game a look. If you are a fan of monster trucks then I highly suggest you check out this game. It has something to offer to the racing fan and the monster truck fans alike. I would like to see them add a little more to this game with some updates and maybe some DLC's to give it just a little bit more longevity and less repetitiveness. All in all Monster Truck Championship is a solid game and will offer you hours of fun. I'm giving this title 4.5 out of 5 stars.
Monster Truck Championship is available now on PC, PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Nintendo Switch
For Teyon’s first try at it I think they did good with Monster Truck Championship. While the controls definitely take some practice the trucks control probably how they should. The game’s career mode will last you awhile and does a good job of keeping itself varied so that you don’t get tired of doing the same thing over and over. The online options are lacking though so I wouldn’t recommend getting this if that’s what you’re looking for. I think this is better than some of the recent Monster Jam games so if those disappointed you give Monster Truck Championship a shot.
