    Monster 4x4 World Circuit off of eBay, (bless 'im, he tries :D) and all I've heard about it is bad things. He originally came to me and said 'what do you think of this game?' and I said 'Well, I've heard it isn't very good..' then he refreshed the page and went 'Oh, well you've got it :D' and I was like 'Well just 'cause someone else said it's bad, doesn't mean it is :D thanks Dad.' And that's that. Basically I wanna know what people think of the game, both good points and bad points, and then, preferably, give it a rating. I would also appreciate people telling me what it's actually about :) Thanks a bunch :D

    Well I don't know anything other than that it comes with a steering wheel. Which means if you get a racing game that you really like later and works with the steering wheel you know have one.

    :lol: I got NFS : Carbon and Cars (methinks my parents think I love racing-games or something o_O) but I doubt I'll ever use the steering wheel :p

    Edit : to Wii_Rulez - thanks a bunch, then again, eff off :D :lol: so by reviews I shouldn't really getting excited by it. Though I appreciate anything (easily pleased) so I'll look forward to it either way :) thanks again.

    I rented it a few weeks ago. It's not that bad, the multiplayer mini games are kind of fun. It's not very challenging though, I beat the 20 race season in one sitting. You can unlock some different vehicles like an ambulance (complete with siren) and a firetruck. Sadly they do nothing for you but look neat.

    There is a stat system where you earn stat points depending on how many cumulative points you get in your races. You can earn points by running over stuff on the sides of the track and doing stunts off of pink ramps. The points boost your speed, handling, etc.

    The mini games are definitely the best part, especially Football (ie Soccer to us Americans). You and a friend drive a truck around a giant soccer field and try to push a huge soccer ball into the other goal. It's actually kind of tough and pretty fun. There are a couple others. One is combat where you kind of fight with your trucks. The other (I can't remember what it's called) is another where you try to push a ball around. There are a number of balls on each side and you try to push all of them to the opponents side.

    I'd give the game a 6.5/10. It's fun for a while, the multiplayer is probably the best part, but the single player campaign leaves something to be desired. I think I definitely got my money's worth as a rental, but I'm glad I didn't buy it.

    Which thankfully I am, thanks :D

    Much appreciated, the kind of thing I wanted from someone! Well nothing beats playing a game with mates or family, so that's good, and I remember a racing game on the SNES where you could play Football while driving the car, and though it wasn't all that great, was rather addictive. Wish I remembered what it was called though... aww well, thanks again :)

    Game came today. Wasn't expecting much from it but it wasn't actually bad at all. Though I've only done a couple of races and mini-games, and it could eventually get boring, but otherwise it's good :)
