Monster Trucks Nitro 2 is the sequel to popular game Monster Trucks Nitro, both with the object of racing through courses littered with obstacles to compete for the best time. In Monster Trucks Nitro 2, you're challenged to work your way up through the ranks by completing early novice courses on up to championship races using different types of vehicles depending on the race. The control system gives you a throttle control across the bottom of the screen (which you'll rarely change from full power) and the accelerometer to control flips while in the air. Though MTN2 is a side-scrolling game, the camera pans as you race, giving a more 3D effect.

Monster Trucks Nitro 2 offers a lot of variation on the basic game mechanics by letting you drive four different four-wheel-drive vehicles to complete challenges and by offering 24 different tracks with unique obstacles. As you progress through tracks you'll find carefully placed pick-ups for turbo boosts, and you can initiate your own turbo boost by completing a flip during a jump. When you manage to get a particularly good time on a course, you can compare your results with other players nationally or globally (switch settings in the options).

Overall, Monster Trucks Nitro 2 is an excellent sequel to the original, offering more tracks, unique trucks to experiment with, and plenty of replay value as you try to get the best time. Anyone who likes arcade racing should grab this game.
