Monster Jam Steel Titans
Top Critic Average
Monster Jam Steel Titans on the Nintendo Switch will be welcomed by fans of monster truck racing thanks to its official license and to the rather sharp and enjoyable gameplay. Those who are not into this sport will enjoy the variety of game modes but they will also look beyond that and the game's flaws will stand out more easily: a lacklustre visual detail, glitches and lack of online component. Overall, anyone looking for a good driving simulation will find better offers elsewhere, but those curious about or interested in monster truck racing will no doubt find something to pay attention to.

Monster Jam Steel Titans is definitely a game for monster truck fans. Most other players may just want to steer clear.
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.
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.
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.
It's one of those games that's alright for a couple of hours if you can get it at a deep discount. Otherwise, it's just too frustrating to recommend.
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.
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.
Monster Jam experience with simple arcade controls, but almost without adrenaline and online multiplayer.

Monster Jam Steel Titans really isn’t much better than the other Monster Jam titles that have come before it and that is the tragic part about it.
