Description

4x4 Evo is a racing game featuring real-life pickup trucks and SUV's. Actual trucks from manufacturers such as Chevrolet, Ford, Dodge, Nissan, Toyota and more are included.

The actual racing game is based very heavily on Terminal Reality's Monster Truck Madness series of games, except with SUV's instead of monster trucks.

One significant feature of 4x4 Evo is the online multi-player option. The Dreamcast, PC, and Macintosh versions can compete against each other in 4 player online races.

In addition to the on-line mode of play, there is a single player career mode. The career mode gives you a small allotment of money with which to purchase a truck. You then can compete in races to earn more money for more trucks or performance parts for your current truck.

Trivia

Crazy 2000 Track

The Crazy 2000 track is not unique to 4x4 Evolution. A version of this same figure 8 appeared in Monster Truck Madness and Monster Truck Madness 2.

Monster Truck Madness 2 Tracks

It turns out that most tracks in Monster Truck Madness 2 can be used in 4x4 Evolution, though some require minor editing.
