True to its title, Monster Jam: Urban Assault takes the dirt-hurling giant-tire action to the streets. It's the streets of world famous cities, to be exact, where the races are run and the destruction is done. With a mandate to crush any other cars they come across beneath their giant knobby tires, players will roll over taxi-cab traffic jams in New York City, bust through double-decker buses in London, and smash up the suburbs of Minneapolis, in fantasy races through real-world courses outside of the arena.
The second Monster Jam game from Activision (fourth overall, including Ubi's Maximum Destruction and Monster 4X4: Masters of Metal), Urban Assault offers players the chance to take the wheel of champion and world-famous monster trucks including Grave Digger, Monster Mutt, El Toro Loco, and Blue Thunder. In addition to the Urban Assault courses, the game also features a full slate of arena competitions, as well as monster truck mini-games such as "Monster Jump," "Air Strike," and "Skee Ball."
