Monster 4x4: Masters of Metal is a racing video game released in 2003 by Ubisoft. It is licensed by and loosely based on the USHRA Monster Jam series and features many real-life monster trucks, including Grave Digger and Maximum Destruction. Although it is an unofficial sequel to Monster Jam: Maximum Destruction, it forgoes the vehicular combat of the predecessor to focus on arcade-style racing and exaggerated freestyle.

Trucks[edit]

Goal[edit]

The player's goal is to win as many races in stadiums and off-roads as possible. The player can race in New York, Florida, Louisiana, Illinois, Minnesota, Kansas, South California, North California, Nevada, Las Vegas and The Moon (as a bonus level). As long as the player has the most points in the end of the season, the player is the Monster Jam World Finals Racing Champion.
