Don't purchase this game if you are looking for a truck sim. Just purchase American Truck Simulator instead. If you are looking for a casual arcade style trucking/racing game with a story then I'd recommend this. The things I like about this game is that there are real truck models used for example, Kenworth, Freighliner, Peterbilt, Western Star, etc... The damage mechanics are more detailed than in ATS, and the truck interiors are also detailed. The graphics however is a major negative, but then again this game was released in 2010.

This game is a fun story driven truck simulator game. Heads up the handling of the trucks is very arcade like and not realistic like ETS2. The game looks like the PS2 GTA games and your character looks like Tommy Vercetti lol. The game actually uses real trucks like Freightliner, Peterbilt, Kenworth, Sterling and Western Star which is a huge plus towards making the game seem realistic, just like the Shell gas stations in the game. Its an overall good game and worth buying when its on sale and at full price is worth it too if u r a truck fan.

Despite what many reviews may say, this is actually a pretty solid game. Yes, game, not quite a simulator. It could be named Need For Speed: Trucks. Although the graphics are definitely not the greatest, they look like the real world locations.

Pros
-A pretty large scale map with OK graphics (it takes 45 minutes to drive from San Jose to Los Angeles, whereas in other truck games/sims like ATS, it would take 15-20 mins to drive the same distance).
-Truck damage!
-Cop chases! (An easy way to get the cops in your rear view mirror is trying to run random people off the road) The cop AI is not too dumb, when you fail to stop they speed up and attempt to stop you by brake checking you from the front.
-Realistic road placement and good city density for the scale
-About 9-10 trucks, a good number for this type of game
-The awfully narrow angle camera CAN be zoomed out.
-A nice variety of AI cars, and you can even choose how much traffic you want.
-Lifelike AI; I forced a cop car to a different lane and the truck in that lane swerved to avoid the car.
-HILARIOUS crashes, I once sideswiped a cop car and it flew into the oncoming side of the freeway, never to be seen again.
Cons
-If you thought this was a simulator, it's not QUITE one.
-When you are scraping against a guardrail, the spark particles are so big it looks like fire.
-Collision physics are a little wonky but they still work (when rear ending a normal AI car, their behaviour makes them seem unrealistically light, and when sideswiping cars, it looks like they are lagging really badly as if they were real players and had a high ping)

If you like both truck simulators and Need For Speed, this game is a must buy. And if you're wondering why only have 1 hour on record, it's because I was so hyped after playing this for 1 hour I wanted to write a review and tell the world how amazing this game is.

I bet this would be one of the least useful reviews, well, i dont really care:

Hard Truck 2: King of the Road was my favourite game of this genre, it was all around 10/10 game, so when i saw this game on steam i was so exited because i expected same game with better graphics and more content but what do we have:

-sh`tty graphics with lags
-sh`tty music
-sh`tty interface and unplayable controls
-rеtаrded collision physix
-i know this is not helpful for english review but this describes the quailty of the game a lot - produced by russian devs @ no russian localization - yeh its THAT hard, ikr
-no steam achievements or steam cards
-no any reason to buy this game

Qualitywise this game is somewhere in between Lada racing club and any normal truck racing game.

A few things that I noticed in my little gaming session, which was 30 minutes or so.
- The cutscenes are just weird
- There's no waypoints on the map when you start the game, so you have no idea where you need to go to
- The camera views are horrible
- The first person (driver) is way too close to the windshield, that makes it impossible to drive and look at the mirrors at the same time
- The "cities" if you can even call them that, are just a few buildings here and there
- I don't see the point of the Warehouse thing, why can't there just be a few companies in the cities where you could just drive to and get a trailer from there?
- I went to get a trailer from Los Angeles' Warehouse but it just said "You're 2nd" after I chose a trailer and I didn't get a trailer behind my truck and I didn't get a waypoint on the map showing where the trailer would be at
- I drove to a gas station and refueled my truck, after that, the truck just completely got stuck, it didn't move at all no matter what button I pressed on the keyboard
- A "2 of 2" or "1 of 2" text in the little bar on the top of the screen, no idea what that means as there was no explanation to that
- And many, many other things.

This game is 14,99€ on Steam, definitely not worth it. Don't spend your money on this game.

Look at this as a simulator and you'll be let down. Looking at this as a truck-themed arcade game, and you'll praise:

• An amazing map - no prefabricated undersized intersections. The bespoke highways are properly scaled and a joy to drive on. You can do more than 30mph without tipping over. The map itself is huge - takes several hours to cross despite higher speeds and straighter roads than ETS

• You can see your hired drivers on the road as they work, and join them in competitive jobs

• A far, far, far more detailed truck diagnostics system than other games. Worn brake pads grind against the discs and degrade braking performance. Panels get beat up, the engine runs like crap.

• The truck upgrade system is excellent and features things like side and rear mounted cameras to cover blind spots.

• Cops (could be a con for some!)

• Nice side-missions, help out hitchhikers if you want, pick up extra jobs from cafés or over the radio

That isn't to say this game is without flaws. The iffy handling and dodgy physics are geared to racing, not driving. There are competitive jobs where you are pitted against other drivers to race cargo to its destination (very unrealistic). There are also truck races and out-of-this-world missions to complete, too.

In summary, don't look at it as a sim and you will be able to forgive its shortcomings. Go for a race or forgive the iffy handling and go for a really scenic drive.

If you're after a trucking game, stick with Euro Truck Simulator 2; this is nowhere near as good as that.

On a side note, avoid pretty much any game developed or published by 1C; they're cheap and in so many different indie bundles for a reason...

Remember that game on PS2 called 'Big Motha Truckers'? No? Well it's like that. This game is fun. It actually has cutscenes in which people actually talk unlike most simulators. (When was the last time you even played a "simulator" that even had detailed characters?) Something I enjoyed most about this game was the fact the cops come after you. I was arrested and even when being arrested there's a short cutscene. Yes, this review sucks. Boohoo. I don't care. This is a real world truck sim. Whereas Euro Truck Sim is a truck driving sim. Yes there's a difference. Play the game and you'll know what I mean.

I like this game, it's pretty fun and doesn;t take itself very seriously at all. It's just an evolution of 18 Wheeler and Big Mutha Truckers. My only complaint is the really wobbly physics...makes sence, top heavy and all that and I found it doesn't lend well for controller or keyboard (Way too many functions to map) so maybe a steering wheel is in order.

not a bad game dose not work well with XBOX360 controller but its still a giggle getting to a police chase in a 18 wheeler best controller setup is to use the keyboard i would give this game 5/10 at the moment it is in weeklong deals so i would recomend it as it cheap but if you want a realy good trucking game euro truck simulator 2 but as an arcade type trucking this is a cool game to own hope you find this helpful
