Monster 4x4 World Circuit is a racing game published by Ubisoft, centering around Monster trucks. It was released in early 2006 on Xbox, and later on Wii as a launch title for the system. It is similar to San Francisco Rush, with huge jumps and vast speed. The game is a sequel to Monster 4x4: Masters of Metal, although it lacks the Monster Jam license. A sequel developed by Ubisoft Reflections, entitled Monster 4x4: Stunt Racer, was released for the Wii in 2009.[1]

Steering Wheel Shell[edit]

Ubisoft revealed a steering wheel shell for the Wii Remote, as an accessory bundled with the game. The peripheral steering wheel, created by Thrustmaster, is controlled by tilting the wheel forward to use nitros and backwards to brake/slow down. Also, when on a ramp, if the player thrusts the shell forward or in any other direction, they will perform a stunt from the ramp. Other games may make use of this peripheral as well when using the same controls.[2]
