Tutorial? nope. Set goals? nope. Good graphics? nope. Good voice acting? nope. Even google doesn't quite know how this game works. On the plus side, it doesn't take up much disk space.

This is the best game ever. The 1 metre draw distance really allows you to suck in the beauty of the gorgeous textures that burn your retinas. The pop-in is great because it gives you a nice shock when a car pops into existance and you crash into it, adds a layer of tension that will keep you on the edge of your seat. The legal system is charmingly weird, as carnage will net you a fine of about $4.50 but running a red light, well, be expected to pay about $8000. The cabins were expertly designed, it's almost as if the game designers were real truck drivers. The driving mechanics are spot on, never have i felt more like i am driving an office chair with three broken wheels. The choice of drivers is a bit unrealistic most truck drivers don't make me feel anyone near as hot as those vague outlines did. All in all i think this game has perfectly captured what it is like to be a truck driver in America and how thrilling every day must be. Buy it for someone you don't like.

I have to say that I am a bit disappointed. I didn't realize that this game was actually made in 2007 so that is entirely my fault. The reason I am putting that I would not recomend this game is because I purchased it at 9.99 and it's only worth about 1.99 for today's standards, if that. We have better options and a company that wants to put something like this on the market should actually continue to make new versions to keep up with the standards.

This is all based on Today's standards vs. Today's price, year 2014.
So the actual review is that the graphix are low end on high settings, not worth the price. The game lacks good control configuration though has limited keyboard/joypad binding. The actual controls are horrid - no smooth driving wheel rotation to keep on the winding roads(compairing to current standards of games that sell for 9.99 keep in mind).
I like the idea of police on the side of roads, but the don't actually pull you over and a ticket is way high for the lack of any kind of justice system. Two thousand dollars for a red light run is too much for a first offense even if you are guilty.

I personally think that you could spend your money on their more current games and get a better value. I would just take this off the market and make a new one if I were SCS. They do have better games.
