|Let's go jump over a line of school buses!|
|I suggest decking your own avatar out with a handle bar mustache|
before playing Avatar Monster Truck to replicate the feel of
actually watching a monster truck rally.
The game play of Avatar Monster Truck feels like it could be fun, but the game lacks a tutorial or anything that helps you understand why your monster trucks controls the way it does. There is a screen that tells you what the controls do, but sometimes the truck seems to stick to surfaces, and other times it would get stuck on hills that I couldn't quite figure out how to get over. There are times where you're driving straight up walls, a la Sonic the Hedgehog, which was cool, but I couldn't understand how I could make it up those with relative ease and then get defeated by a small hill. I could tell there was a rhyme and reason to how the truck worked, but I had trouble figuring out what this was on my own.
|Oh shit! The monster truck course is haunted by a ghost!|
Let's race it!
|My car was green, like the M&M, and had the number 69 on it.|
Also, I forgot to mention over the weekend that the winner of my Johnny Carnage high score contest went to lPayneToTheMaxl who scored an INSANE 4,250,520 points, saving 129 girls and making it to room 14 with 2449 kills. Comparatively I was in second place with 1,437,540 points with 83 girls saved on room 9 and 733 kills. Good job lPayneToTheMaxl! He received 400 Microsoft Points as a prize! I had a lot of fun with that contest and I think I'll do one each month going forward. I'd love to give away indie games when I can, and this review is another chance for that. Leave a comment on this review with your gamertag and I'll select a comment at random in Friday November 30th and send you a code via Xbox Live for a free copy of Avatar Monster Truck.
