Driving is realistic. But the turning radius of the trucks is poor, and not much different than older games. But the graphics are much better, as well as the weather. But this game is a different type. It is not a serious simulator, it is an arcade-style game. But there is nothing wrong with that, except for the fact that the player can get tired of it quickly, with only three environments included. I do suggest that people buy Extreme Trucker 2, but this is not a bad game, but one that has room for a LOT of improvement.

Wheel support sucks. May have been solid when it came out, but it sort of lacks stuff expected in the truck sim industry these days. Interesting environments though.

5.9/10

OK, here goes...
This game plays well, finnaly!
I have a couple of things to mention though. The Option buttons are not very well thought out
To get a Steering Wheel to play in a driving sim, should be second hand, but finding the options button for Manual Transmission, Controller Activation, and such was a mistery? Until that is, I found the Manual, and noticed the author mention in small print about a "BUTTON" at the "TOP" of each Option tab.
With this in mind, the Mystery was soon solved!
These "BUTTONS" are "Orange in Color" BTW
Have Fun, I am now too!

The extreme thing about this game is that it gives you a chance to slide off the road in icy conditions. Its like the other games you need to get from A to B as fast as you can without loosing your load. This game puts you more into the wild conditions that truckers face everyday. It still is fun to drive a big truck. Its alot of fun to play when you have time to burn and want to know what it feels like to be a real trucker. Get it if your ever interested in that field of work.

Despite it's dated graphics, it's still a fun game. I'm using a "Steel-Series" game pad, and custom mapping, Set up for manual transmission makes it a bit more exciting. Gear down and "HIT THE JAKES"
So over all, if you like driving games or BIG TRUCKS, take it for a spin.

Always a fun game to play, played several of these games and I like this one the best. It´s quite simple, the graphics still look good and I´m sure if you like trucking games then you´ll definately like this one!! Works on widescreen res 1920x1080.

Bought within a set a long time ago and decided to play it again, so price isn't a factor in this. Also, I do not normally play driving games (racing or otherwise) and have not played Euro Truck Simulator 2 (newer by the same developer).

I only played this game for an hour on easy and did not advance out of Canada. I did, however, complete 4 hauls.

Pros:
- Graphics were good enough for this game for being 5 years old.
- Decent AI who would me and the fissures.
- Good handling of the transitioning traction from snow to ice or ice to snow.
- Simpler gameplay to 18 Wheels of Steel: American Long Haul.

Cons:
- No tutorial (why do I need to slow down on ice).
- Limited replayability.

I enjoyed this in a "drive a big rig like a Ferrari" kind of way. This felt very arcadeish compared to the aforementioned predacessor to this game. Because I didn't fear falling through the ice, I enjoyed drifting my trailer around corners. I did enjoy the traction change from ice to snow or snow to ice, definitely can tell the difference between the two in the handling of the truck.

tl;dr: In summary, I would recommend this to someone who is a fan of the genre, otherwise I wouldn't. 3/10

Bored? To young to travel by yourself? Want to see how its like to be a trucker WITHOUT leaving your home? OR do you just like simulations (The ones that dont look like they were made by a 5 year old;Horrible Graphics And Even Worse Sound And Are Rated * (1 Star)... Then this is the game for you! I really like this game,of course if you have alot of money to spend you can buy Euro Truck Simulator but for people who DON'T want to waste money on games that work only on high-quality computers (Not Laptops) without running at 15 fps... This game is really good compared to some other (Really Crappy) Simulators and i don't mean that in the "BOO" way i mean in the "ok." way i mean this game wasn't very addictive to me at first but if you have a love for simulators then buy this game! *** Rating For Me! PEACE -dan

One look at this game and you'd think "This is some stupid ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥". You would be correct in that surmation, but what you fail to realize is that this game is actually god damned awesome when you get past the fact that you're just driving from point A to point B with some silly environments. It's fun as hell to go over median going 85, or drifting in the snow with a load of precious diesel fuel. They have these little hills in the snow levels, you get a good speed going you can ♥♥♥♥ ♥♥♥♥ up when you launch off of em.

This is a silly game for a select audience, but if its on sale for like $4.99 or less, I'd say get it, it's a nice distraction from those FPS' you play all the time. You know who you are.
