Bought this game before it was released with much higher expectations ie. more variety in vehicles, more keybinds, possible multiplayer
Would have liked other types of collection equipment

Well, I have learned another lesson about buying games on the first day of release....Don't do it. This game is broken and crashes without making it to the main menu.

Edit: Due to negative comments, I must add that I am not the bad guy here. This game was NOT in early access. But I expected some flaws, as these simulator games are hit or miss on the quality. I purchased a finished game, I can't wait until its finished so I can write a proper review of my gameplay experience.

Unfotunately for now, I cannot recommed anyone purchase this because I am not the only one having problems with the game crashing. When it is patched so I can play a few hours, I will edit my review.

Edit 9/12/2014 The patch came out 8 days after release so here is my review- It's about what I expected when I purchased this title. Good graphics, probably the best feature of the game. There still are some bugs that need to be worked out. I am satisfied with the game for the price but you have to like simulator games. I am not changing the thumbs down because, at the time I purchased, there were no reviews. I posted this review because I use the review system to help me decide if I should purchase the game, and for all the other gamers that do the same, I was providing valuable information to help them as they have helped me.

Edit 9/12/2014
The patch was out yesterday and now the game will play. However, there are still game-breaking bugs and crashes.About 10 hours in, and this will be the 3rd time I have had to restart because of crashing during loading a saved game or a bug with the truck being empty but when I try to dump a container in it, it says the truck is full.

Buy at your own risk.

Howdy. I purchased this title on its release day on Steam, and boy was I disappointed. As a QA analyst by profession I was truly disturbed by how unfinished this game truly was at release. Mercifully I was not beset by the crashes many of the other users have been afflicted by, but the game itself was clearly rushed through QA if it was even tested at all.

AI trucks not having cockpits, immediate resolution of AI routes, incorrect amounts fo profit returned from AI routes.. The list goes on and on. I truly, personally gave up after attempting to dump in the landfill with the trash going under my truck preventing me from ever moving again. A gamebreaker if I've never seen one.

Until this game is properly tested and patched do yourself a favor and stay away.

sorry to all those folks who had problems with the game. i had the opposite experience. i have been having a great time with this game. it works well for me. the only problem i had was when a worker got stuck inside the truck. i think just pushing the R for reset will solve the problem.

One of those games I wish I didn't buy. No blinkers, flashers, flashing lights, NOTHING!. The guy takes forever to haul the garbage. This should not be listed as a simulation game because there is no simulation, not to mention the graphics sucks. I am a garbage man in NY and if i moved that slow i would fired so quick. You can't control the garbage man only the driver which sucks. No first person cam no moving the cam around just that horrible view. I did not have any problems with the game loading or working or anything it works perfectly fine for me just sucks. Horrid game do not buy!

Suprisingly this is actually a pretty fun game. I love Simulations, was tenative on getting it until a patch was released, proves they care. So I bought it once the patch was released. Game play is unique, guess it would be for a game about garbage and recycling, little repeatative but most simulators are. Graphics are suprisingly good and the game play is fun if you like simulations. No complaints, I hope they add more maps not that I have finished the original but variety would be awesome. More trucks etc too but game plays smoooth, is rather fun to play, suprisingly addictive. :)

Random events would also add a coolness factor to the game too, something to break up of the normal trash activities.

After all the problems with this game on the day of release i can honestly say that the developers have done a great job in fixing all the bugs.
This has to be 1 of the best simulators on steam at the moment.
I highly recommend you give it a try
