For my opinion on Ex Machina as a whole, check out my review for the original game as my opinion on this installment is essentially the same. It is just as fun as the original and still has its quirks.

Just like the original, this game has an in-depth storyline with lots of optional side-quests to participate in, you're also filling the shoes of the charismatic protagonist Vagrant, so the story doesn't directly continue after where the first Ex Machina left off, but rather continues from a different perspective. While Meridian 113 isn't as lengthy as the original, it brings some new additions to the table and some small improvements here and there too; It also feels very fast paced when compared to the original too.
New additions consist of new weapons, utilities, loot mechanics, and new vehicles to choose from during your missions, all of which add a nice refreshing touch to the game. Some of the improvements are a nice touch too such as the improved map previews and the ability to repair your vehicle on the go with scrap you acquired from the enemy you just destroyed.

As already mentioned, the game still has it's quirks such as the grammatical and spelling errors caused by bad translation to English from Russian, the physics still leave something to be desired and the voice acting is still questionable, though this is only the case for a handful of characters in the game, the voice acting for Sam for example is excellent whereas One-Eyed is classic Ex-Machina voice acting. This doesn't bother me though, it's just something that gives the Ex Machina series it's charm.

So all in all, if you liked the original, you will also like this. These games are worth every penny be they on sale or not, but as stated in my review for the first game, this is not a franchise for everybody, I'd still suggest giving it a try though if you're looking for something different to play.

Here's hoping Targem Games are planning to develop another installment to this great franchise!

I run it on WIN7 64 bit. I got some errors (Unhandled exception and assertion failed) but i found a solution I rename the folder video to video.old (data/video), set compatibility to WINDOWS 2000 and after i lunch the game alt tab, Task manager -> Meridian113.exe-> Set afinity-> CPU 0.

BTW i try Ric Castle advice:

Tested on Win7 64bit and Win8.1 64bit with GTX780 and GTX660, works fine.

I have a AMD RADEON HD 7700 Series and both methods work for me, so feel free to try.

Cheesy as hell, but a classic game that is still fun, if you don't mind driving around a lot. Very similar to the first game, Rise of Clans features more twists in the story than an M. Night Shyamalan movie. Quests usually are not more than go here, deliver thing, go there kill bad guys, or find this, but it works.
Half the fun is the glitchy mess that HTA is, with terrible ai and bugged missions, but it works often enough that it's not detracting from the game.

Also dosn't hurt that it's impossible to find retail.

Easily worth the $6.

Imagine a game that mix Twisted Metal and a open world game like Fallout...Is this game.You start as a vagabond that has to do missions to earn some cash and at the same time,killing enemies. The fun thing is that you can purchase parts to your dune buggy or truck,making he faster and stronger.This game has a cool soundtrack. The only problem is the cutscenes,the characters continue moving after they have talked .-.

Anyway,it's recommended for Mad Max fans, Vehicular Combat games fan and even Fallout fans because this game has a bit of everything :D

Hard Truck is a rather old game but that doesn't mean it's a bad game. As a matter of fact it gets a lot of thing right, where other modern games fail.
To get the game running you might have to run it in Compat. Mode and or delete the video directory withing the game installation directory.

The gameplay is okay and the controls fluid. The quest system is a bit off and the the rather strange dialogs make sure that you don't forget about this being an east-block production.
Still, Hard Truck is a game that delivers a lot of fun, especially for this price.

Unlike the two other games in this series, at least this one loaded on the first attempt and I was able to play it. It was actually quite fun.

I was disappointed though that HTA Ex Machina and Arcade would not load. I was able to get Arcade to load on the second attempt, but I could never get Ex Machina to load.

I would avoid both Ex Machina and Arcade, and just get Rise of the Clans.

Ok. This game is the worst of the two Hard Truck Apocalypse games. Granted, for $1.50 (on sale) you get what you pay for.

Trucks with guns
Truck models are nice
More customizable colors for trucks and the ability to add decals (when available).
Like the previous HT:A, you have easy to use driving/aiming using keyboard and mouse
Perks system: This is kind of a WTF. You have them, but I didn't see any way that they helped or hindered. It was never obvious.

Voice acting: ABSOLUTELY HORRIBLE! Weird language, lack of inflection, etc.
Story: Disjointed. Nonsensical. Your character is the most naive, trusting, moronic human being in the freaking planet. You are looking for some place called "Edmonton" for no other reason than it is there. Along the way you join forces with the obviously badguy "Sam" (who looks like Uncle sam). You also meet someone named "One-Eyed" who sounds like they are your friend, but (spoiler alert) you end up killing her because she won't give you a box of old filmstrips and she decides to attack you because you bothered to ask. So you kill her. But you seem to think that Sam is an OK guy despite threatening to kill you and wanting to find an ultimate weapon. Also, bad guys are super tough for no reason and they are ALL OVER THE PLACE. You can't even leave a town without getting blown up (seriously, it happened multiple times).
Money: In the first HT:A you could actually make money trading. It made sense. Not in this one. It's cheaper to go out and kill bad guys and sell their stuff.
Side quests: Like the first HT:A, they are essentially "go here, kill this", "guard this slow guy" (p.s. if you let the cargo truck die, you get a LOT more money fromt heir death drop), or "go here, deliver this package." After a while, I stopped doing those as there was no point.
Video issues: There were options to improve the graphics, but the game would refuse to load after I upped them from "medium" (the default). Had to go and reverify the game files before it would load with the default graphics.

If you can look past the bad voice acting, horrible story, and just random goofiness, it's an ok game. It is fun driving around blowing things up and running over pedestrians (which apparently is ok, but bumping into another vehicle will piss them off).

Be advised, until this game is updated or corrected it will not work properly on windows 7 64 bit. You can load, run it once and save but it will crash with a nullpointer exception when you attempt to reload it.

If this changes, I would change my recommendation.

I love the game system behind this game, but this game is not currently playable for me.

Really enjoyed it! 10/10 it is one of my best.

WARNING: the game may not work on windows 64 bits, i know there is a solution but i dont know, wharever, this opnion it is not including that, I have tested it on Windows 32 bits.

I spend a lot of time playing this game with my cousing, totally we made like 300 game hours, know i buy it on myself and start again, and i have to say, still very funny, I dont finished in my acount and i dont have play enough because other games.

I agree there is people who say the price is high, I love the game and I could pay for it 30 dolars, but i know that no everyone will pay for it $13 DLS (I buy it on $6) so, that is for your opinion

The gameplay is good: it is not hard to crontol the vehicles as you must upgrade your vehicles while making the campaing, for that you must hunt members of clans againts you (normaly bandits) good mechanics and the battles are funny.

Music: it is wonderfull in my opnion

Ambient: always apocaliptic ambient is good

History: is interesting, almost it is not so "excitining" as oder ones but i thing it isn´t crap

Somehow this game ruined the original, despite more content.

Rise of Clans is an attempt to move the game to the Americas (or at least, sorta like the Americas) and give more options, like instead of a truck, start with a smaller vehicle (such as the vehicles bandits drive in the first game). There's also more cutscenes and a bit more of a story. Unfortunately, the result is buggy, and somehow, much WORSE than the first game.

Rise of Clans have you, "The Vagrant", on a quest to reach "Edmonton" in "Le Canada". You run into towns in your "Scout" (one of fast but small vehicles), and you end up fighting a lot of people here and there, as you run into "Sam", who then task you for some missions...

The cutscenes are horrible, and the translations are just... Oh dear. People swear with expressions like "Holy Fuel" and "Drill my carburetor" (huh?) And it's a wonder how did the voice actor actually read the lines with a straight face. It's just completely atrocious translation.

Somehow the game got MUCH MUCH harder, as even on "rookie" level I died every few minutes, and as there is no autosave, I have to save manually QUITE often.

Then my entire save profile was corrupted. Lost HOURS of progress.

Also ran into a mission that's virtually impossible and it's widely reported as impossible and depends on LUCK rather than skill.

Forget about this game. Play the original.

Figured the game was worth a try at $2 even if it didn't work. Which it didn't even with the suggested fixes. Maybe you can get it to work, maybe you can't. Up to you whether the risk is worth taking.

Never have I seen a harder band of trucks. They're made out of some ridiculously tough type of metal and can withstand one thousand guns. These are truly hard trucks. How hard are these trucks? WEll,
