Summary

Prepare to boost yourself into a world of monster trucks, with monster tracks, in the hi-octane off-road driver, 4 Wheel Thunder.

New for Dreamcast, this title is visually, very, very impressive. The high resolution, textures graphics add to what is a vast selection of huge, realistic tracks. As the title suggests, 4 Wheel Thunder is all about four wheel drive. You are presented with a choice of monster trucks to race with, all of which have slightly different handling. Once chosen, it’s time to kick butt and win some races.

The trucks handle exceptionally well. However, game play is unforgiving. There is no runner-up. There is no second place. You either win, or you lose. It’s that simple. If you want to progress, you must make your way from twelfth to first in two, two and a half minute bumpy, twisted tracks. There are four and nine second boosters along the way to aid you in your challenge. These are critical elements in your challenge to win the race. Use them wisely.

4 Wheel Thunder possesses an excellent challenge, even for the most capable of off-road drivers. A very, very decent title.
