Let's face it. Monster Trucks really only appeal to young boys with fantasies of driving these big behemoths around and crushing tinier cars under one of the massive tires. So it makes sense why I would argue that Monster Jam: Path of Destruction is a game for kids. Kids don't really care too much about graphics as long as it gets the point across. Monster Jam understands this and caters to its audience, but that isn't always for the best. Drab arenas are filled with muddy textures (well to be fair, it IS mud most of the time) and bland crowds. It only works in so far as the Monster Truck you are driving looks decent enough to interact with its environment, but the overall impression isn't that much better than PlayStation 2 level quality.
The atmosphere set by the heavy guitar riffs and revving engines works well. It helps sell the feeling of being in the arena, but after a few short minutes, that generic guitar track becomes grating and annoying because it is looped over and over again. I know I am being asinine, but would it have really been that tough to include at least one other alternative to the already generic "rock" track? Don't expect much in the way of voice talent either. The inclusion of some pitiful announcer work does not do Monster Jam any favors and couple that with the nearly inaudible soundtrack and blown-out audience sound effects and Monster Jam becomes one big cacophony of car wrecks and engine roars.
