TLDR: Fun for a few hours, car AI sucks, cops are unfair, driving is okay, hauls take too long, slow to make money, some very fun opportunites to jump your truck.


Its fun, but i wouldn't recommend it. The driving mechanics are okay, its annoying that there is no completely player controlled shifting mode. Turn signals don't do ♥♥♥♥, but emergency lights will make anyone near you slam on their brakes, which can be alot of fun on a boring long haul. There is a decent amount of road in this game, enough that long hauls take a very long time. It is too easy to damage the trailer, and it is also WAY too easy to run red lights. Effective braking can be accomplished by using the pedal brakes (S), the jake brake (B), and the parking brake (Space). Cars will honk at you for waiting patiently behind other cars at red lights. Cars will also make sudden turns in the wrong lanes that will ♥♥♥♥ you up. Cars will also turn right into your trailer without realizing that it is there until too late. Cops are ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥s and can ticket you without even chasing you. If you pass by a cop on your side of the divided highway, they will ticket you, if you pass a cop on the other side of the road, they will pursue you, It is surprisingly easy to outrun the cops, but if you don't have some speed built up before you start the chase, you are screwed. Also, it helps to have some heavy traffic when in a police chase, the cops aren't the best at avoiding crashes. The sleeping mechanic in this game is annoying, without checking your driving logs you really have no idea when you are getting sleepy. There are also some glitchy spots where you can fall out of the map, as well as some AWESOME jump opportunities.


It would take a very long time to make decent money by delivering cargo, so instead i found an alternative method. Buy CHEAP used trucks, i think trucks under $50,000 are ideal, then fix them up and sell them. This way allows you to make money very easily. Don't buy expensive trucks and try to do this, the profit dissapears quickly as the price increases.

Bought within a set a long time ago and decided to play it again, so price isn't a factor in this. Also, I do not normally play driving games (racing or otherwise) and have not played Euro Truck Simulator 2 (newer by the same developer).

Pros:
- Surprisingly good traffic AI (although not very realistic), they normally slow down for ya, but had a guy run me off the road after a weigh station.
- Surprising depth and possible re-playability.
- Decent graphics for a 7 year old game.

Cons:
- Poor key bindings (did not have a steering wheel)
- Repetitive (as can be expected I guess)
- Difficulty entering cities from highways
- Bad camera angles

To elaborate, I enjoyed my few hours of playing. My time was spent making a delivery from Dallas to El Paso (something), El Paso to Albuquerque (Coal), Albuquerque to Dallas (Explosives). I found the West and East legs to be easy and tedious, with the north and south legs to be more difficult. I noticed that there's a way to buy many trucks and trailers as well as have contracts created for companies. I did not investigate the business side of the game, but do know it's there for another play time.

I used a key pad which had most of the keys bound to and found that the bindings were not terrible, but limiting. I could not use the number pad to answer radio calls and had no idea what each of the codes meant.

All in all, my biggest gripe was the limited access road to high way connections. When heading south on I35 from I40, I had to go through Dallas and come back around in order to reach my destination. This was the most annoying of the destinations, but I had a similar problem in El Paso and Albuquerque.

tl;dr: In summary, I would recommend this to someone who is a fan of the genre, otherwise I wouldn't. 4/10

This was what i used to play back when i was about maybe 7 and i wasnt allowed on the internet. I played this game day after day until the disk somehow broke into peices while in the cd drive and i havent played it for 4 years since. Then i realized this was on steam for a price of 9.99. Then i bought it so much nostalgia. So on to the review

This game was made back in 07 and its impresive with how good it looks even for being 7 years old. There getting old but they still look good,

Pros.
-Graphics look nice for a game made back in 07
-Good game to run on older pc's that cant run euro truck simulator 2 (or 1)
-Affordible
-Many trucks to buy in game (with ingame cash not dlc)
-Single delivery mode (You have infinate money and you can choose any truck you want)
-Pretty decent Ai traffic (But not very realistic though)
-Capable of modding (No workshop support but online you can download trucks and other things and simply drop it in your mods folder in the 18 wheels of steel directory
Documents>18 wos american long haul> Mods
Cons.

-Hard to enter cities from highways (Or interstates)
-Annoying controls
-Minor glitches barely noticible though

So heres my rating

Graphics: 9/10 These graphics are good for a 07 game.
Gameplay: 9/10 (Gets repetive but who would of guessed)
Music: 7/10 Music was ok but in game theres a radio in your truck that you can add your own music to (Google it)

overal. 8.5/10

Bottom line.

Euro truck simulator 2 but in america and older graphics

Really cheap and ♥♥♥♥ty game. The Dev's really didn't put any time or effort into this game like the creators of Euro Truck Simulator 1 & 2. Do not buy this game with high hopes like i did. A 14 year old can create this game without any scripting or C++ knowledge. Honestly. It's junk

I'm really torn to say if I recommend this game or not, It's a good game, but at the same time there are games much like it that are better. Years ago I loved playing this game, but Euro Truck Simulator 2 basically ruined this game for me... If you want a alturnitive to ETS2 this is a okay one (much better than extream truckers IMO too). but if your looking for a really good truck sim, jump to Euro Truck Simulator 2 instead.

Also the people making Euro truck simulator 2 are making a America version too, so that should be fun. ;)

PS I just realized ETS2 and This are made by the same Developer.

Anyway I'm going to go with No, wait for the America Truck simulator (my name for it :P) or get Euro Truck simulator, it's better than this game, even though this game isn't really bad. Plus youre atleast helping the same Developers. :)

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.

Got this to re-live the memories of playing Cross Country Canada, it failed.
Couldn't figure out how to start a mission or go anywhere, and frankly didn't care.
