To its credit, there's a good amount of fun to be found within Monster Jam Steel Titans. Although the game can feel limited or repetitive, it rarely feels unpolished or incomplete. The truck controls are spot-on and feel fantastic, which is the most important landing to stick. More than anything else, the game feels like it has a limited scope, but importantly, it does well within the goals that it clearly has for itself. It's a fun game involving monster trucks, and the freestyle mode alone carries a lot of the game's entertainment, as it should.
Overall, if you're an adrenaline junkie but lack the money to afford a monster truck, or the life insurance to cover you in case of accidents, then Monster Jam: Steel Titans is pretty much the next best thing.
Rainbow Studios, a subsidiary of THQ Nordic, is the 15th game of the franchise that debuted on PS2 back in 2002. Monster Jam's cars are very fashionable right now, at least in my house, where my 6 year old son collects the franchise's toys and watches with great emotion the videos of the best exploits that abound in Youtube.

Monster Jam Steel Titans is a very fun car trip leading to a disappointing destination. For all the excellent mechanics and the trucks themselves, there is only so much gas in this single-player tank to cover an empty world and a limited number of races.
For a budget game, there's a lot to love in Monster Jam Steel Titans, despite its shortcomings. If you're a megafan of Monster Jam, there's probably never been a better game. Still, it's lacking some basic design functions that could make it a must-own. My kid loves it though, and sometimes that's all that matters.
For a fan of the series, this isn’t a terrible title to pick up. In fact, it seems to be the best of the bunch. But I wouldn’t recommend this game to anyone else, they just wouldn’t enjoy how the trucks control. Whether casual or really into racing, it’s not a title I’d pitch to them. But if you like big trucks and big air, hop on in.
Overall given this has a fairly hefty price tag albeit not top end at £35 this is not what you would expect to get for your money, the frustrating element of all the issues means that its hard to really get a lot from this game and it just isn’t good value for money.
It seems that the Monster Jam series is off the track, as every recent entry in the series cares much more about the financial goals rather than game's quality. Steel Titans is no exception and if the owners of the title don't change their entire view, we are not going to see any good Monster Jam title in the future too.

Monster Jam Steel Titans is destined for the sale bin. It's too devoid of enjoyment to be worth picking up on eShop, and definitely not worth the strangely staggered physical release that's touted for February. If you're a major petrolhead you may get a portable kick out of it, if not, it's best just to steer clear.
With impossibly light trucks that flip over if you simply sneeze, incredibly repetitive gameplay and a pointless, bland open world, Monster Jam: Steel Titans just isn't fun to play.
Realistic monster truck physics are unique to be sure. But what’s here is just so bland, and unfun that the end result will provide about as much playtime as a demo would.
with a poor content, broken physics, boring race tracks and absolutely no fun factor, Monster Jam Steel Titans is a game you probably should not bother with.
