Anyone evaluated this game yet?

I'm curious if when visiting the different cities, e.g. San Diego, etc.; are the cities very in-depth?; can you traverse a lot of side and smaller roads? Or do you just drive through on the main freeway roads?

Let me put it this way:

Have you ever played the following?

Hard Truck
Hard Truck 2
18 Wheels of steel
18 Wheels of steel: American Lon Haul, Convoy, etc..
or a similar game made by 1C Company/SoftLab-Nsk

If you have, they pretty much follow the same line, the only difference being that the most recent game uses (a little) more sophisticated graphics, recent trucks, different cities and some options and details.

If you have no idea what those games were, expect a fully loaded simulator with very good realism, attention to details, a complex system of roads (that include highways and rural roads) and an array of powerful trucks that provide the right sensation of driving a rig and the difficulties that come along.

The cities are not at they're original size, but usually there are landmarks to identify them.

It mostly consists of:

1 - Buying a Rig to start;
2 - Do deliveries, thus earning cash;
3 - Upgrade truck;
4 - Do more of 2;
5 - Upgrade the Rig to it's max;
6 - Even more of 2;
7 - Buy a new truck;
8 - 2 again;
9 - Hire drivers to start a fleet (if that's available in this particular game);
10 - 2 Once more;
11 - Drive other out of the competition and win the game.

They're very fun, if you have the patience because IT IS a SIMULATION! No arcade elements here. So you really have to like simulations to trully enjoy this game.
The road rules apply, truck wear out, (very) long drives trough the country. I've found my self driving for 90min just to get a delivery done.

Of course these games are meant to be played with a steering wheel, 'cause with the keyboard it's a bit exaggerated on the reactions. No fuel economy there either. But it's playable. :)

Anything else you need to know, just ask! ;)

Thanks JP for the insight, that does sound a bit promising.

I suppose the idea of traversing 'side roads,' would be unnecessary for an eighteen wheeler anyways. I just didn't want each town to have all the backdrop, but be completely linear.

Your details though have made it sound worthwhile.

Much obliged.

Anytime buddy!

I love simulators and try to grab as much as I can.
I must say I haven't played this one...yet. :laugh:
But the the ones I mentioned are great too and have taken many hours of my life. :roll:
and I must say they were awesome for the time I got them.

If you like the theme and, after you play this game, would like a change of backdrop, check out the game I'm currently playing, Euro Truck Simulator. In America it's called Big Rig Europe. It's made by a similar company called SCS Software and I'm enjoying it very much.
Takes place all over Europe and it has European Rigs! :rockout:

For me it was a must have, since I live in the old nation and most of the Truck simulators were basically American. :D

You can see the trailer here.

Alright will do. It may take me sometime to craft my own big steering wheel and somehow fit it to a G25!

Big Rigs is the ultimate Rig game, everything else is just a toy!
