Video games are going to be enormously popular this Holiday Season and in our household it will be no different!
As some of you may know, I am a certified Coach Handbag and Temptu Airbrush Makeup agent and I work as an online customer service, chat agent to help customers with any questions or concerns they may have. Through my work I have the opportunity to save up points and trade them in for some really great products. Over the past 4 or 5 months or so I've been able to save up enough points to get Ashton a Nintendo 3DS for Christmas.
Thanks to my fabulous friends at Ubisoft, I also have quite a few really fun games to give him as well! But since this is a review opportunity for my gift guide I figured it was necessary to try them out for myself. What a shame, right? Needless to say, I've been having a blast and one game in particular has drawn Josh's attention.
More Information about Ubisoft
According to the co-founder and CEO, Yves Guillemot, "When my brothers and I created Ubisoft back in 1986, we started out with a simple motivation: work with passionate people and make fun games. Today, to continue surprising our millions of fans all over the world, we're always on the look out for new ways to push back the boundaries of creativity and innovation. Beyond simple games, we strive to create immersive and engaging creative worlds that not only offer moments of pure fun, escapism and adventure, but also opportunities for learning and self-discovery."
"The video game industry is constantly evolving, and Ubisoft teams and I are eager to take up the next challenges in store so that you can have even more gaming pleasure"
Ubisoft is the third independent publisher of video games worldwide with enormously popular titles like Assassin's Creed, Just Dance and Tom Clancy's Splinter Cell. Ubisoft has been one of our absolute favorite video game publishers of all time and have enjoyed hours of game play in the past few years or so. They are always coming up with new and innovative ideas that make videos games that really catch your attention.
Monster 4x4 3D for Nintendo 3DS is not the first Ubisoft game I have had the pleasure of reviewing and it will not be my last! If you have a son or if your significant other happens to love Monster trucks and the destruction that comes a long with them then they are going to love Monster 4x4 3D! This great game allows you to enjoy a Monster Truck experience in 3D with fully customizable, large, aggressive and loud vehicles that destroy and change the game environment and allow you to deliver complete mayhem!
According to the Ubisoft website, Monster 4x4 3D features:
Progressive Career Mode:
5 different environments
3 boss challenges
36 upgrades of 3 parts
5 destructible parts per vehicle
Range of Vehicles:
20 play vehicles
Ranging from classic dune buggies to modified SUV's to large monster trucks
5 Special vehicles like ice-cream truck, garbage truck, construction crane, burger truck and school bus.
While Ashton isn't a very big Monster Truck fan, mostly because he doesn't know much about them, I think he's really going to enjoy this game! The 3D effects are absolutely incredible and it really adds to the entire experience. This game is rated E10 - Everyone 10+ and can be found for the Nintendo 3DS. I definitely recommend this game to anyone who has a young boy that loves Monster Trucks and unleashing virtual mayhem!
Shopaholic Rating: 5 out of 5 Shopping Bags - After a hard day at work, Josh really enjoyed unwinding and destroying virtual environments in this fun game for boys of all ages!
