Hot Wheels Unleashed Monster Trucks Expansion Review: Worth Buying?

Till Hot wheels on the loosethe first expansion was a corporate collaboration with Batmanthe latter is called Monster Truck Extension, which, as advertised, adds five monster trucks to the game. Four typical expected big cars are Race Ace, Tiger Shark, HW Demo Derby and 5 Alarm, and one is a very large version of the Bone Shaker which is especially good. However, if the thought of driving these huge machines doesn’t appeal to you, then this DLC is probably worth skipping.

Hot Wheels Unleashed Monster Trucks Expansion Review: Fully Tamed

The most interesting thing here is the monster trucks themselves, they are absolutely massive and turn into behemoths on the track. In fact, they are so big that some obstacles, like barriers that you can crash through, no longer slow them down. This is a great distinction that gives players a reason to race with naturally slower cars, as they can handle some of the hazards and worry less about them. However, many larger obstacles such as the new swinging boulders will still affect monster trucks, so some experimentation is needed to figure out what can be avoided and what still needs to be dodged, which adds more strategy to the game. the way players choose their vehicles. .

While monster trucks are very easy to use, even if they never score high in time trial mode, the new environment is more of a mixed addition. Called Stop Motion Studio, it’s a miniature movie scene filled with different locations: a jungle to get lost in, a detailed quarry, a hot desert, the least visually interesting of all, and a mountain made of ice.

Theoretically, all of these locations are cool, but instead of real tracks going through these locations, the areas are simply separated by traffic cones, which can often blend into the background (for example, in a desert). When you’re moving at a fast pace, it can be difficult to figure out which way you should be going, leading to some frustrating resets after you miss a checkpoint and mess up your race time. The actual design of the five new courses against this backdrop is good, but this confusing layout makes it hard to get back to after completing the 10-event City Rumble map they inhabit.

It’s worth noting that there are two ways to purchase this expansion: as a standalone purchase for $14.99, or as part of the game’s second season pass for $29.99. The latter variant also comes with three track build modules and nine vehicles, including licensed ones such as Turtle vehicles for Michelangelo and Raphael, and Street Fighter cars of Ryu, Chun-Li and Vega. The Pass is a better deal, as the price is a bit fairer when more items are included. Street Fighter the cars in particular are pretty good as they are funny and are caricatures of the characters themselves so it’s a blast to see Ryu’s little car speeding around with his hair and red headband.

General, Hot wheels on the looseX Monster Truck Expansion not as exciting as the previous one Batman branded. The new location looks good enough, but it pales in comparison to racing through miniature Gotham and the Batcave. If you really like the design of the monster trucks and want to play in a new way, then it’s worth the asking price, but if you’re not a Hot Wheels fanatic, then these monster trucks are best left in the garage.

Rating: 6/10

As explained in ComingSoon’s review rules, a score of 6 is «Decent». It fails to reach its full potential and is a mediocre experience.
