Monster Jam: Maximum Destruction is a video game of the vehicular combat genre released in 2002 by Unique Development Studios. The game is based on the USHRA Monster Jam series, and features several real life monster trucks including Grave Digger. Although it contains racing-based minigames, the primary focus is on the combat, which includes power-ups and weapons in addition to demolition derby style maneuvers.

Gameplay[edit]

Players can choose between Exhibitions, Mini Games and Seasons.

Exhibitions are either Death Matches, where the match will only go until there is one truck standing; Cash Grab is where the player collects most of the power ups, with a certain number based on the difficulty played on by the end of three minutes; players can also try to collect the most money for damage (which are considered points) in Points mode with a certain number based on the difficulty by the end of three minutes.

Playing a Season is where you play for a full eight worlds of any difficulty (Easy, Normal, Hard and Extreme) and play on any mode (Death Match, Cash Grab or Points) and can upgrade their truck between rounds at the garage. If you lose only once, your season is over; however, if you win the season, you unlock a "Champ" version of the truck you used; the difference is that a "Champ" truck has golden rims, a golden chassis, a Monster Jam emblem on the front, and a Checkered Flag on the rear.

There are six different Mini Games: Stadium Freestyle, Stadium Race, Lava Island, Canyon Race, Stadium Challenge and Arena Challenge.
