Hard Truck: Apocalypse/ Ex Machina - This is a very good game of improving your vehicle and overcoming enemies. There's not a lot of interesting missions that provide great fun. Playing in his time was a big hit. I would recommend playing in it is really good. This is the 1st part of the cult series 'Hard Truck Apocalypse'

Well, after long years of being a huge fan of this game, I finally finished it (I had an original Russian actual version released by Buka company).

My feelings are mixed. I'd like to point out some pros and cons for the game, and you guys will judge for yourself.

I solemnly swear to keep it spoiler-free for those who still hasn't finished it.

Pros:
* A pseudo open world to explore. Due to some scripted restrictions you cannot simly go to, say, Vaterland from Krai. But it doens't mean that actual exploration is not fun and to some extent rewarding.
* A variety of trucks to choose from with a great deal of customization. I love all of them, except for maybe Belaz since I didin't touch it at all.
* A wide variety of weapons to satisfy anyone's taste, from machine guns to plasma cannons.
* Lovely soundtrack and visuals. A bit outdated, but the game is almost a decade old! Explosions and energy particles tho.
* The narrative in terms of lore. Just read the in-game books.

Cons:
* Extremely poor narrative. Both from the point of telling a story and the story itself. I dunno, maybe it's just those Masks that make every character to look the same way? Or voice acting? Or the final which is a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT?
* A dumb AI. More in a matter of path-finding than fighting. Extremely stupid! Sometimes a bunch of trucks cannot make it through a hill because instead of driving around they try to come over it.
* Not really much stuff to do aside from some interesting side quests now and then.
* The final boss battle. A huge disappointment also. No spoilers!
* Dialogue is just a stub. I understand that in such a mission there need to be less talk and more action but damn! I felt sorry for coming to Ben's place and leaving the same instance without even saying good bye. No love for the old guy.
* Restrictions on where to go and what to do. Try to cross that river in Vaterland. Just go and do it.
* Some things are just unnecessary. For example, some inter-regional shortcuts. I never used them and have a feeling that never will. Sad but true.

CONLUSION: This game has it's flaws, and narrative leaves a nasty touch on my tongue. But I still love this game. For the sense of freedom that it managed to give to me despite all those restrictions to go where I want. For the atmosphere of post-apocalyptic road to nowhere. You just go where the wind blows. I just wish I could dive into this world a bit more, leaving all that main storyline somewhere on the side. Actually, a sandbox open-world RPG in HTA setting would be much appreciated and would become a must-have in my collection. Maybe with some neat multiplayer like it was, say, in Freelancer? I don't know, and probably will never know.

Anyway, that's my review. Still love this game and recommend it to everyone interested. Give this game a try.

Hard Truck: Apocalypse takes an interesting premise and strips away all but the most mundane elements, leaving you to drive down a long and unexciting road to nowhere.Most of the trucks ride like they should be carting oranges or vending-machine refills, instead of chasing bandits. Pushing them down the road with a keyboard ain't much fun—and driving eats up almost all of your playing time.The more interesting large-scale fire fights and planning truck upgrades provide some reasons to stick with it, along with nostalgia for dear old Interstate 76. If only Targem had concentrated on lending the missions more of the depth I76's sported, the other faults would be far more forgivable.The vast world with bandits and weapon-packed vehicles is an interesting idea, but being forced to meander back and forth across it just to earn a few scraps of cash makes the whole thing boring.Its gameplay isn't imaginative or original, but if you're looking for a quick fix of destructiveness, Apocalypse gets the job done. Overall 5/10.

It sounds like such a simple question. "Do you recommend this game?" But every now and then a game comes along that makes you really have to think about that. This is one of those games.

It is a budget title. A game that is massively flawed, but functional. There are bugs, ranging from invisible walls in the middle of the map, floating grass, options such as reversing your mouse’s y-axis not saving when you exit the game, to the game not exiting properly, crashing, and not working on Windows 7 or higher without some tweaking. There are bugs. You will encounter them.

The game, originally Russian, has some problems in the translation. Voice acting for the main character is flat. He calls out things like “The roof is on fire!” when he spots enemies. There are several more non-sequiturs in the game. The story is fairly generic, limited. However, it does branch out, letting you choose different factions to support during the game.

The game is not polished. Your vehicle can climb mountains with ease, physics are described as ‘bouncy’. To explain why all the characters’ faces don’t move, the creators decreed that all the characters wear masks (and, yes, the graphics reflect that).

But the gameplay is there. You can drive around. You can enter combat, with a variety of weapons. Vehicles are done in a fairly strict upgrade process. One chassis is better than another, one cab is better in nearly all stats and slots than another, same with beds. Even with combat, some weapons are clearly better than nearly anything else in their slot (shotguns, particularly the medium shotgun, are fairly over powered compared to other available weapons).

You can raid, you can trade, haul cargo, complete quests. You can finish the game. It is not without flaws, but it is not without charm. There are problems with AI spawn rates, where enemies will attack in rapid succession outside of a town, leading you into a loop of defending yourself, looting the scraps, returning to sell and repair, and then being attacks again right away. Other times, you will not see an enemy for several maps if you run through them. Yet the game also contains some clever fights (and some generic ones).

The first map perfectly introduces you to how to play. The next string of maps seems to follow the trope of “they get worse as you go on, because fewer and fewer people will see them”, but began to improve again in time. You do eventually see different environments from what most of the early game looks like.

This is a game that doesn’t feel done, but does feel like the devs had a clear idea of what they were trying to achieve. And, gameplay wise, it is solid. And it is fun, if that’s what you want. So, in the end, do I recommend this game? Yes, I think I do, if that is the kind of game you’re looking for, and if you can look past its many flaws. But this game won’t appeal to everyone.
