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.

Broken on release. Cannot get this running crashes on start up how they messed this up so badly is beyond me. I guess no one tested this game in their office. The word "mediocre" comes to mind

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.
