Monster Jam Path of Destruction 

 

None of us at Family Friendly Gaming knew much about Monster Jam. We knew it was a Monster Truck show, but that was about it. Well thanks to a fantastic friend, we got an education. I have been to my first Monster Truck show. I have been to a Monster Jam event. It was a lot of fun, and gave me insight into the video game. In fact after attending an event I appreciation the video game a whole lot more. This review is for the Playstation 3, and Xbox 360.

The car crushing graphics in Monster Jam Path of Destruction are very crisp and clear. The vehicles look amazing in Monster Jam Path of Destruction. The vehicles that are crushed are painted certain colors, and have their glass removed. The special effects in terms of pyro on certain jumps is pretty cool. The stadiums in Monster Jam Path of Destruction look different, and are cool to perform in. Monster Jam Path of Destruction includes numerous trophies that I enjoyed collecting.

If you attend a real life Monster Jam event you will need ear plugs, or headphones. Be as macho as you want, you will need them. Thankfully the video game is so much better. I also like the announcer in Monster Jam Path of Destruction better than one in real life. The music is upbeat, and energetic. The monster trucks do have that powerful revving, and I enjoyed that (as long as the television volume was not too high).

Two players can enjoy Monster Jam Path of Destruction locally. There are eight authentic stadiums, thirty-two racing events, twenty-four freestyle events, and five bonus game modes. Then there is all of the different vehicles, and adjustments allowed to them. I feel that Monster Jam Path of Destruction is worth the price of admission. Family Friendly Gaming was provided a reviewable copy. However I am not interested in past iterations of this franchise to see how much it has improved, and will be investing in them. That is how much of an impact this game has made.

I tried the Wii version of Monster Jam Path of Destruction, and found the controls are way better in the Playstation 3 (PS3) version. The controls for the front and rear tires works so much better on the PS3. It took me two or three events to adjust to the controls, but once I did I was doing great in this game. There is a lot of variety in the events in Monster Jam Path of Destruction. This kept this game fresh, and leveling up after events is one of the best parts of this game.

The first thing most families think of with Monster Trucks is cars being flattened. I know that was my first thought. Attending a Monster Jam event, and playing Monster Jam Path of Destruction has taught me there is so much more. There are various racing events, and a lot of jumps. The way the camera works in Monster Jam Path of Destruction, there is little emphasis put on crushing the cars. The real emphasis comes in winning races, and performing cool tricks. I hope there are sequels to this game in the future.
