I LOVED this game when it first came out. That said, I loved ALL of SCS's trucking games throughout the 18WoS series. The game has decent control, great economy and company management and brilliant truck ownership detail. Before I get ahead of myself, however, here's a real list of pros and cons to this game:

=PROS=
- Decent graphics: This game may be old, and it does show it's age, but the graphics still look alright, if a little dull at times.
- Good control: This game is no ETS2, but it definitely feels right. Its a bit slick at times, but you have to remember you are driving a heavy truck.
- Company management: Manage everything from the trucks, to the drivers, right down to the contracts and companies.
- Truck AND trailer management: ETS2 fans will like this... You can BUY TRAILERS. Just a little bit of extra management and a bit of extra content to buy.

=CONS=
- AGE: This game shows it's age... alot. The sound is low quality, the graphics are dull as stated before... it's an old game.
- Bugs: This game has its share of bugs and issues. I personally have problems with the fov not setting properly. I have to manually set it for it to look right.
- Fatigue: The game's fatigue system is realistic to the game time, but the distances to game time are not realistic. I woke up at the edge of a city, and by the time I got to the other side, I had to sleep again. I suggest turning fatigue off in the config files.
- Scenery: This game also shows it's age in scenery. It's a bit dull and repeatitive.

I enjoyed the game, and I still go back and play it occasionally. I would reccomend the game to anyone who likes other 18wos games, or trucking games in general.

This game is an excellent precursor to the euro truck simulator series as well as the upcoming American Truck Simulator from SCS. It has few minor issues that may deter many gamers from giving this classic title its due.

The cities are not fleshed out. They are essentially hubs to drop cargo and get new assignments. The Fines for stopping too far over the line at red lights seems rediculously high, and the braking distance for a bobtailed tractor is a little far, but oh well. The meat of this game is spent driving miles and miles of bland landscapes sharing the road with what appears to be all students on their first day of drivers education classes.

Having said all that, however, I still enjoyed playing this game and finding out by trial and error what we were supposed to be doing, other than delivering and picking up cargo. If you enjoy simulation games, this may peak your interest. If you are more of the Need for Speed type, pass this by.

Always has been a favorite from my childhood up until now. Love that the company is making a new American Truck Simulator.

i have a complaint. I had it before on wild-tangent games and i played the heck out of it then a weird thing happened, when i tried to play it another day it said that the game was corrupt. so i figured if i bought it on steam the game may be fixed. But nope its the game not program. so i would like my 10$ back. overall though i liked the game and i would reccomend to play it

A really old but fun game. Good for truck driving across America, and part of Mexico and Canada. Don't expect state of the art graphics with this game. It's a old game.

A classic truck driving game, especially fun if you're a fan of other truck simulator games such as ETS and ETS2 by the same developers!
While obviously not as polished as it's more recent cousins, it most certainly has it's charm and can still live up to an enjoyable driving simulator, especially for the cracking price this gem usually is at sales.
Naturally I recommend this game because of it's nice scenary, mission variety, controller support and just how well built it is. I haven't had a single crash with this game.
If you have a gaming wheel like I do with my Logitech Driving Force GT then you'll be happy to know you can also use them with this game. So what are you waiting for? Get trucking!

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

This game is definately worthy of it's 100 metacritic rating, not only is the story immensely well thought out, the graphics beutifally detailed and the game so massively atmospheric but it's also a gameplay experience like no other. The only reason critics didn't rate it higher was because there isn't a number that could be big enough to accurately measure how good this game is. This is a game that should be owned by all people.

I'm not sure what would bring someone to purchase or play this game, but if they retain the same mindset I don't think they'll be too disappointed. This is a game about trucks for people who really like trucks. Recommended if you like trucks.

Not a bad game. ALH shows its age against newer trucking games with over sensitive steering, poor traffic flow, and of course worse graphics. Overall it's still a good game with a lot of highway to drive.
