Screenshots are from original Ex Machina not the Arcade. Arcade have only one car and a small number of upgrades. Missions are long, repetative and boring. Physics are stupid, graphics are aweful. Tornados in second mission made me delete the game because they make it almost unplayable. Avoid unless on a huge sale and you want cards.

Tried a variety of different workarounds to get this to run on Win10-64.
It doesn't

0/10

Let's see if I can get this POS to 2 hours to get the cards.

Avoid unless your still on a Windows XP machine.


Update:
Don't know how but I got it running.
Win 8 compat, reinstall, no other tweaks.
Don't touch anything if you get to the intro vid. Takes about 3 min but you'll get into the game.
For the love of god, DO NOT TAB OUT OR IT WILL LOCK YOUR SYSTEM.

Pro:
Fun driving a APV
Easy controls WASD
Cards
Low system specs

Con:
♥♥♥♥♥ to get running
Very dated
Gets boring fast

Overall:
5/10 +1 cards, +1 APV, -5 ♥♥♥♥♥ to get working = 2/10

Would play if it was free and I wanted to shoot stuff with an armoured vehicle that can drown in water in 3 seconds. Fun for 5-10 min, then sucks. At this point it's less of a game and more of a frustration / steam card generator.

I don't like it at all. I want my money back. It sounds like it would be fun but its actually boring. The controls are WAY too sensitive. The games is just horrible. I do NOT recommend it.

This crap doesn't even work. I can probably find some guide to launch it after messing with game files but why bother? Got refund and uninstalled.

HTA Arcade is an attempt to dumb down the original Hard Truck Apocalypse (aka Ex Machina) into an arcade shoot-em-up. However, it does not support controller, and the keyboard/ mouse controls are horrible. The game is also extremely unbalanced, and there's NEVER enough heal. The in-game purchases to improve your trucks are EXTREMELY expensive, and lack of savepoints or checkpoints make the entire game extremely frustrating. You're much better off playing the actual HTA, not the arcade game.

This game is disappointing, it's much buggier than the first two, and is more of a spin-off. Once you go through the hassle of getting it to start, you'll find you weren't missing out on anything. It has a small selection of rather pointless missions and most of the freedom found in the previous games is gone. It for some reason only supports 4:3 resolutions despite the previous games supporting widescreen. Also the cards do not work for this one, so no farming here either.

This game is significantly unlike the other two HTA games on steam. It is much narrower in scope and to me, much less interesting. I like the other two games enough to tolerate the bugs and mayhem but this one is just not recommendable.

Boring, a waste of money and it has not a single one of the nice aspects of the old Hard Truck Apocalypse titels in it. A shame.
